Book Review ~ Last Light by Terri Blackstock

Restoration Series, Book 1
Terri Blackstock

About the book:

Birmingham, Alabama, has lost all power. Its streets are jammed with cars that won’t start, its airport engulfed in flames from burning planes. All communications---cell phones, computers, even radios---are silent. Every home and business is dark. Is it a natural disaster . . . a terrorist attack . . . or something far worse?

In the face of a crisis that sweeps an entire high-tech planet back to a time before electricity, the Branning family faces a choice. Will they hoard their possessions in order to survive---or trust God to provide as they share their resources with those around them? Yesterday’s world is gone. Family and community are all that remain. And the outage is revealing the worst in some.

Desperation can be dangerous when a killer lives among them.

New York Times best-selling suspense author Terri Blackstock weaves a masterful what-if novel in which global catastrophe reveals the darkness in human hearts---and lights the way to restoration for a self-centered world.

Read The First Two Chapters

My thoughts:

This is a re-release but somehow I missed it the first go around. If you missed it you should pick it up as well. It is a page turner of a read that will leave you pondering how you would survive in a similar situation.

Can you even imagine what it would be like if suddenly everything electric just quit? This isn't just the lights in your house but it is your car, your cell phone, your watches. All those everyday conveniences suddenly don't work. Think about this . . . even the water that comes into your house does so because of an electrical pump. How would you get water and how would you filter that water in order to drink it?

This is the scenario that unfolds in the story. The good, the bad and the ugly are all magnified in this tale. Some of the people resort to hoarding what they have and some continue to be giving people. Evil begins to take root causing everyone to arm themselves against the unknown. The more the situation deteriorates, the more people's true characters are revealed. 

The main characters in the story are the Branning family and we are allowed to see how their overindulged lives have slowly destroyed what God had intended for them. Through the worst of circumstances God begins to reveal to them what He intends. 

This is the first book in the Restoration Series. It is followed by three more and I can hardly wait to dive in to the rest of them to see how it all turns out.
