>1 – True Light ; Terri Blackstock

>Photobucket True Light ; Terri Blackstock

Blackstock’s third novel in the Restoration series is slow-moving in the first half, but the pace picks up considerably in the second. The Branning family and their neighbors are now eight months into a worldwide blackout, trying to make ends meet and survive one crisis after another as violence rips their community apart. With the sheriff and his deputies desperately overworked and earning only a tiny fraction of their former pay, they can no longer keep their overcrowded, disease-ridden county jail under control. That means that it’s up to Deni Branning to help clear the name of boy-next-door love interest Mark Green when he’s wrongly accused of attempted murder.

My thoughts: As the second last book in this particular series, I found it a little slow moving at times, but still interesting. There were points in the book in which the book was a little too predictable, but at the same time there were some great messages, particularly the ones about forgiveness and humility. I only read it for the fact that I had already read the first two books in the series and that it seemed to be interesting. It was interesting to see the character’s true colours shine through a difficult time and hopefully the final book will be more than worth it. Rating 3/5 stars.
