About Cloak of the Light

Drew is caught in a world of light - just inches away from the dark

What if...there was a world beyond our vision, a world just fingertips beyond our reach? What if...our world wasn’t beyond their influence?

Tragedy and heartache seem to be waiting for Drew Carter at every turn, but college offers Drew a chance to start over—until an accident during a physics experiment leaves him blind and his genius friend, Benjamin Berg, missing.

As his sight miraculously returns, Drew discovers that the accident has heightened his neuron activity, giving him skills and sight beyond the normal man. When he begins to observe fierce invaders that no one else can see, he questions his own sanity, and so do others. But is he insane or do the invaders truly exist?

With help from Sydney Carlyle, a mysterious and elusive girl who offers encouragement through her faith, Drew searches for his missing friend, Ben, who seems to hold the key to unlocking this mystery. As the dark invaders close in, will he find the truth in time?

Praise

Praise for Cloak of the Light

“The invisible world gets a makeover in Chuck Black’s Cloak of the Light. Often
reading like a thriller, this fresh take on the unseen inspires and entertains in
equal measure. Reader of all ages will enjoy this one.”
—Shannon Dittemore, author of the Angel Eyes trilogy

“Bring on the battle! Cloak of Light is a journey you won’t quickly forget. Angels
and demons clash in an epic story line laden with spiritual warfare. I loved
this book.”
—Heather Burch, author of Halfling series

“Over the last several years, my family and I have come to appreciate Chuck
Black’s works, and Cloak of Light is no different. Cloak of Light is set in the
modern world rather than the ancient times of the Kingdom Series. We have
come to expect two features from a Chuck Black work: allegory based in
spiritual matters and illumination of the spiritual warfare that happens around
us every day. Many young people long for adventure, and this book has it.
What I appreciate most is that adventure and spiritual battle are presented as
common rather than special. As Christians, our adventure is in living for our
Lord, and this is what Chuck Black brings out so deftly in his allegories. This
is a great book for all young people, especially young men.”
—David Nunnery, Teach Them Diligently

This fast-paced story is full of twists and turns that will keep you turning pages until the very end ... and then wanting more. Cloak of Light is so well written you'll as if you've truly stepped into the world that Black has created. The imagery is detailed and the characters are well-drawn and likeable. This is one story that I didn't want to end. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Last week I was honored to be able to read this very book that you are looking at! YES, this was a really good book. I would think that I've read some really great book before, but each time I say that another one comes up a little different and well grabs me by the eyes and heart. When you read the description of the book itself, it's almost like they're telling the one juicy part that you want to read. But that's so not the case...
