So Shines the Night
Tracy L. Higley
Though this book had some very sinister undertones from dealing with all the sorcery that plagued Ephesus, I never felt that it got too dark. Of all of Tracy Higley’s books that I’ve read, this included the most Biblical figures, including Paul, Timothy, Aquila, and Priscilla. Though I wasn’t totally interested for the first few chapters, it got exciting in the last half, and I couldn’t put it down! The author states that despite being set in such a different time, she was inspired by Jane Eyre and other classic Gothic novels (and there was one scene that totally reminded me of Beauty and the Beast!), which I thought was interesting.
Overall, I enjoyed this book, probably more than her last book Isle of Shadows. I’ve really enjoyed reading Tracy Higley’s books, and I look forward to reading more of them in the future!
Objectionable content: there are about three kisses; most of the content that might be disturbing involves murders and the influence of sorcerers.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
