About the Author
Erynn Newman is a pastor’s kid, raised in churches all over the Eastern Seaboard. As a little girl, she created rich fantasy worlds and imaginary friends that followed her into adulthood, when she realized that meant she was either a crazy person or a writer—or maybe both. Out of Darkness was born as she wandered the cobblestone streets of Europe during a semester abroad.
Since earning her degree in Christian Studies, she has traveled the world and served as a missionary, a counselor, an ESL teacher, and a nanny. Though she has never worked with the CIA, her DVR contains a veritable Who’s Who of international spies.
She is passionate about God’s glory and storytelling, and is blessed to be able to use one to accomplish the other. She is a Carolina girl, a wife, and Mama to a very busy little boy, two cats, and a gaggle of characters that live inside her head.

You could read Out of Darkness as a stand-alone, but to feel the full impact of the opening of the novel, you really need to read First Light first. Elisabeth and Drew have the kind of personalities and relationship that light up the page—the combination of banter, friendship, and a deep love that is so enjoyable to witness—but by the end of the first chapter, it’s gone. Only the reader has the benefit of knowing what has really happened to Drew, and it’s not a pretty picture.
As in First Light, Erynn Newman did a wonderful job of conveying both the passing of time and the development of her characters across that time in well chosen scenes. I particularly loved the way in which Elisabeth’s faith became a beacon to Gabe following Drew’s ‘death’. He was already swoon-worthy material, but his eventual acceptance of Christ brings a maturity to him that totally seals the deal! And the way he handles everything . . . oh, my heart ached for him. Hero with a capital H. Please, can we have more of Gabe?!
As wonderful as Drew and Elisabeth’s reunion is, the three years they were apart have altered them both, and there are personal things they must work through in their relationship while they’re trying to stay under the radar and work out who was behind Drew’s ‘death’. It all makes for a compelling story, and the vitality in Newman’s writing and characterization brings it all to life. You can’t help but want to spend more time with these characters.
I received a copy of this novel from the author. This has not influenced the content of my review, which is my honest and unbiased opinion.
Aside from that, and all the suspense that had me hanging by a thread, I loved how the author kept Elizabeth's faith front and center. Even in crisis, she clung to God. She prayed. She was thankful. And I think that sets a great example for us. We're not perfect, and not every single waking moment that Elizabeth had was perfect. But overall, she chose to keep her faith in God and not waver. She had such courage and strength in knowing that while she didn't understand what was happening, God did. I'm not sure I could be like that, but it certainly makes me want to be.
This was a wonderful book. Full of hope, suspense, and all the things I mentioned before. I certainly hope you pick it up and give it a try. You'll be glad you did! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Out of Darkness is a suspenseful novel that actually begins rather slowly compared to some. And, frankly, that’s part of the suspense.Read more
