Terri Blackstock – Last Light

The first novel in the Restoration Series series.

Last Light - Book Cover

Synopsis:

Birmingham, Alabama, has lost all power. Its streets are jammed with cars that won’t start, its airport engulfed in flames from burning planes. All communications—cell phones, computers, even radios—are silent. Every home and business is dark. Is it a natural disaster . . . a terrorist attack . . . or something far worse?

In the face of a crisis that sweeps an entire high-tech planet back to a time before electricity, the Branning family faces a choice. Will they hoard their possessions in order to survive—or trust God to provide as they share their resources with those around them? Yesterday’s world is gone. Family and community are all that remain. And the outage is revealing the worst in some.

Desperation can be dangerous when a killer lives among them.

Terri Blackstock-Quote
This is my favourite quote from the novel – so powerful and true!

My mother suggested that I read this book and I must say – it was well worth it!

I couldn’t stop reading. The story line was so intriguing and captivating. Not having read her books or heard of the author before, I didn’t know what to expect – if her writing of the entire book would be as suspenseful as the synopsis.

What was really jarring for me was that at the time I was reading Last Light, I was reading the book of Revelation as well and living during the COVID-19 pandemic (and still living through it). The combination of this, made me feel as if I was enduring through an apocalyptic era.

Blackstock’s characters have a real depth to them that makes it easy to put yourself in their shoes and feel that you might behave the same way in those difficult situations.

After reading this, I definitely need to get the rest of the novels in this series. I’m so excited to finally find a good christian author that portrays the goodness of God during tough times.

Teaching us what it means to truly lay down our lives and completely put our trust in Christ.
