I received this book from Thomas Nelson through Booksneeze.com for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.
The evil in East Salem is no longer content to hide in the shadows. The
stakes—and the darkness—are rising.
Dani Harris thought there wasn’t much left that could surprise her after
serving as a forensic psychiatrist in East Salem. And Tommy Gunderson has faced
few challenges in his life that he couldn’t overcome by either physical strength
or his celebrity status.
But as they race to uncover what’s really happening behind the high walls of
St. Adrian’s Academy, it becomes clear that supernatural forces have been at
work here for generations. And now their focus is on making sure Dani and Tommy
When the unseen becomes seen, faith is the only weapon strong enough to fight
in a battle involving not just murder and betrayal—but angels and demons.
Darkness Rising is the second book in The East Salem Series by Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson and it is an awesome book. I had the privilege of reading Waking Hours, the first book in this series and I was hooked. I have been impatiently waiting for Darkness Rising since I finished Waking Hours so I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Darkness Rising picks up where Waking Hours ended and from the first page it grabbed me and kept hold until the very end. Dani Harris and Tommy Gunderson are working together again not only to figure out who or what murdered 2 townspeople but to also find out who or what has a hold of the town, especially St. Adrian's School. With the help of some angels, a librarian, an actress, an Indian man, and an elderly man from Europe they set up to find out about the evil that is brewing in this little town and how to get rid of it.
Lis Wiehl is one of my favorite authors out there. I have read all of her fiction books so far and I have fallen in love with her books. Lis Wiehl and Pete Nelson are an awesome writing team. Their style of writing really grabs me from the start and keeps a hold until the end. The story lines keep me guessing until the end and Darkness Rising is no exception. The authors write with authority on East Salem, history of that part of the U.S., history of good/evil, Angels, demons, and works of art. As I read Darkness Rising I could vividly see in my mind all that they were describing. I highly recommend this book to fans of Christian Fiction, it will not disappoint. Darkness Rising can be read on its own without reading Waking hours but I recommend reading them in order. I look forward to reading more by this spectacular writing team.
