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
—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

a series of unexpected events, has the ability into see into another realm: the realm of
angels…and demons. This exciting story takes you into the life of Drew Carter, now a young
man in high school, who has experienced much hurt, disappointment, heartache, and
tragedy in his short lifetime.
At the age of twelve, Drew’s father dies in action as a member of a Special Forces
unit in the United States military. Jake Blanchard, Mr. Carter’s best friend and fellow
soldier, visits the mourning family and helps them through their grief. Over the years, Jake
takes Drew on camping trips and eventually, combat training trips beyond the borders of
the U.S. Despite having to move from one place to another to get a job, Drew’s mother,
Katherine, is a strong woman who does whatever she can for her son. Although they go
through many struggles, Katherine and Drew bond and push through life together.
Then, when he meets and defends the high school “geek”, Drew’s life is changed.
He also crosses paths with a fascinating girl named Sydney Carlyle, a homeschooled
student who takes a speech class at the same school. She is a dedicated Christian,
which Drew finds difficult to understand. Drawn by her confidence and beauty, Drew seeks
to develop a relationship with the elusive young woman. After an accident at a lab in
college, Drew went blind, but later gained his sight back, along with an unexpected change
that turned his world upside down. Through the life of Drew Carter, this book gives insight
to the spiritual battle that rages all around us.
In Cloak of the Light, Drew Carter finds himself in the midst of a battle that wages all
around us: the war of the realms. Despite a rough childhood, Drew excels in his later years
of high school, graduates, and is accepted into Drayle University, where both his best
friend, Ben, and the mysterious Sydney Carlyle also attend school. After an accident in a
physics lab, Drew goes blind and, a few days later, Ben disappears.
A few months later, Drew regains his sight but, now, not only is he able to see
normal things, but also realizes that he is able to see into another realm, a realm that
contains warriors, both good and bad. These “invaders”, as Drew calls them, somehow have
the ability to control, protect, and affect the human mind and circumstances beyond
comprehension. With this new ability, Drew watches as the dark invaders wreak havoc on
the world, controlling the human judgment and causing everything from anger to
international scandals and world atrocities. Armed with extensive training from a former
Special Forces soldier, Drew drops off the grid and sets out to help counteract these
invaders’ evil doings.
As he moves into inner-city Chicago, Drew has many opportunities to help others by
protecting them from the local gang called “The Dragons”, actions which earn him the
nickname “The Guardian.” All these good deeds are a result of something Drew remembers
his father telling him: “It’s wrong to do nothing when you have the power to do something.”
Drew does not realize that this quote comes from the biblical principal found in James.
“Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it,…it is sin” (James 4:17).
Although we don’t have all the details about angels, what we do know provides
room for speculation and a bit of imagination. This book had some very interesting details
about the angels and, after reading this book, made me think more about what very
possibly could be more than just speculation. Cloak of the Light contains great enjoyment
for the reader - humor, heartache, suspense, action, prayer, and a touch of romance are all
packed in one book. Although not everyone has the same views on the subject of angels,
Cloak of the Light is a good reminder that we are “under the charge of the angels” (Psalm
91:11) and that the “war is not of the flesh” (1 Cor. 10:11). I would recommend this book to
anyone who has an imagination and loves action.
Still, if you believe you've done a decent job of keeping the "boogeyman away," hold this for a few years because the imagery is that good. Unfortunately, I believe that I will finish the entire series long before the weekend begins and hope for more.
