How do you keep going when you feel like your life is over?
Maggie never thought she’d see Clay again. So, she attempts to put her life back together after her heart has been shattered to pieces. Moving on and moving forward, just as Clay wanted her to.
Clay never stopped thinking of Maggie. Even after ripping their lives apart and leaving her behind to get the help he so desperately needed. He is healing…slowly. But his heart still belongs to the girl who tried to save him.
When a sudden tragedy brings Maggie and Clay face to face again, nothing is the same. Yet some things never change. Can the darkness that threatened to consume them be transformed into something else and finally give them what they always wanted? And can two people who fought so hard to be together, finally find their happiness? Or will their demons and fear drive them apart for good?
The thing about love, is even when it destroys you, it has a way of mending what is broken. And in the shadows, you can still see the light.
5 Overwhelmingly Emotional Stars! Light in the Shadows is the perfect sequel to Find You in the Dark. Find You in the Dark sucked me in, and I have not been able to stop thinking about it. It evoked so many emotions, and I was completely emotionally invested in Clay and Maggie. So, needless to say, I have been on the edge of my seat, waiting for Light in the Shadows, the conclusion to their story. Find You in the Dark left me with so many unanswered questions and I have been on pins and needles waiting to find these answers.
The thing that I love most about this series is it’s realness and commitment to a honest depiction of mental illness. And life, no matter what, always has obstacles. So, I read this with a nervousness that the bottom would fall out. So, my emotions were all over the place. And then the ending was absolutely bittersweet and had me tearing up.
Light in the Shadows picks up right where Find You in the Dark left off. And my emotions picked up right where they left off. I had so much anxiety about what would happen with Clay and Maggie. I needed so badly for there to be a happily ever after. And shortly after beginning this one, my need only intensified. They each are working so hard at learning to live with everything that has happened. Furthermore, Clay is trying to learn to deal with the demons that led him to his destructive behavior.
Once again, I became so absorbed in Clay and Maggie’s story. Getting to see this story through each of their perspectives only drew me in more. Everything about this story is completely realistic. I don’t know too much about the thought processes of those with mental illness, but I have got to say that Ms. Walters hits it right on the head. My heart broke over and over for Clay as I saw him try so hard to overcome his demons.
Maggie was once again such a refreshing character. Her love for Clay is undeniable. I hated to see her heart broken. But as always, she fought for what she wanted and needed. She was ready to do whatever it took to save Clay. But she had clearly grown and would not be pummeled by Clay’s demons anymore. She was the epitome of strength and someone to be admired.
Light in the Shadows was everything that I hoped it would be and more. Clay and Maggie’s journey was not an easy one but it was one that sealed their tight bond. I HIGHLY recommend this one. Just make sure you have some tissues ready.
Up for grabs is an EBOOK copy of Light in the Shadows!
