About This Book:
Drew is caught in a world of light – just inches away from the darkWhat 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?
This book will have you gripping the pages from the first chapter.
The author’s style had me fully enthralled from the beginning. I find that interesting considering the book is about a boy/young man. But I could see this book playing out so clearly in my mind.
The book starts with Drew’s father dieing and Drew learning to deal with that. Then just as his life seems to be going better, he is at the top of his game in football, he has to move and leave his school.
Drew quickly learns that the football players at his new school don’t like mixing with kids on other groups. Drew defies these boundaries and befriends a “dork”. This doesn’t go over well with the football players. But once again, Drew proves himself and some of the players start to except him.
Things begin to get mysterious when a car almost hits Drew but he is somehow saved. He knows he felt something push him out of the way but no one else is around. This is obviously the set up for that he will experience later on in the book.
For you romance lovers out there, there is a romantic thread as Drew has his sights set on Sydney. But through her he might find a deeper love, the love of the Father.
All of this happens with in the first few chapters. There is so much more to follow this is a book you won’t want to miss.
This book doesn’t release until March 18th.
