    HOLY FANTASTICAL TOP 5 BOOK OF 2016!!!!!! Yes, I said it, this is definitely in my Top 5 of 2016 and hopefully will be in yours too! I wasn’t going to request anything else from NetGalley until I got through some of my current stack (who am I kidding???) but after my sister in law read this one I had to go ahead and request it so that we could discuss. :) I didn’t know much about this book going into it, just that it involved a religious sect...

    As always, Ms. Romig has weaved an intricate web of deception that has completely captivated me. Nobody writes an antihero better than she does. Each of her books leaves me a twisted up, confounded and conflicted mess...and I love it!This book tells the story of Stella and Sara, two seemingly different women with vastly different lives. One woman is fiercely independent and focused on her career. The other lives a life of submission, with virtual...

    I am officially mind-blown.Dear sweet lawd, this was a tour de force. Ms. Romig killed this story. Killed it. Dead. It's unusual that an author manages to confound me but hand on heart, I did not clue in the story was running flashback and present day concurrently, that is, until the very last page!!! A. Romig is a goddess! Review to come (Gaaah, as soon as I'm done with Away From The Dark)

    5 STARS ”Vanished from sight. Disappeared into thin air.” This is perhaps Aleatha Romig’s best work to date! Her writing and storytelling is superb and will have readers on the edge of their seats with this intelligently woven thrill ride. This is book one of a two book series that is so captivating it’s impossible to put down. The author eases between povs and has you totally relating to our heroine, Sara Adams. Sara has just woken up i...

    Excuse my English - but, out-freakin'-standing!  Absolutely brilliant! " I said no talking, don't make me repeat myself....obeying isn't optional"  And with that I was hooked. This book involves cults and the disturbing powers they wield over their followers. A society within a society.  When I was in my freshman year of college we had a deprogrammer come to our dorm to warn us of the danger of cults and how to spot if one approaches you. W...

    5 Stars!!Mrs. Romig simply blew me away with this first installment in her newest series entitled ‘The Light’. I have to admit I rarely read mystery/thrillers, but dayum, I have to say I really enjoyed this one. To be honest I was at the edge of my seat from the very beginning until the end and yeah, I enjoyed every minute of this suspenseful romantic thriller. I’ve read several books by this author, so I can totally say she’s an amazing ...

    I have to admit..when I first saw this book up for request on Netgalley I thought it was a sexy times book. It's more of a thriller and it's freaking good! 4.5 stars from bitchy me good.Sara wakes up in a hospital and realizes she can't see and has no memories of her life at all. She is told by the staff and a guy who says he is her husband that she had an accident and is recovering. But husband boy? Jacob..he tells her to not embarrass him...the...

    5 stars! OMG I don’t even know what to say about this book. Once again, Aleatha Romig has totally mind fucked me. I am not always a fan of thrillers, mysteries or suspense, but I love this author and wanted to give this one a go. My god this one got me from the start. I couldn’t put it down and I was questioning everything- I thought I had a lot figured out then that 99% mark hit and I was wrong. WRONG. I still can’t get over how wrong I w...

    Holy Frak, what a ride!I am so excited and anxious to share my thoughts but damn at the same time I want to be reading book two in this series , so excuse me if I am brief. Sara Adams wakes up blind, in pain and unable to remember anything of her past.  At her bedside is a man called Jacob who says he is her husband.  It soon becomes clear to Sara that she is totally dependant on Jacob.  I mean totally.  He decides when she can drink, eat,  ...

    I went into this book blindly. I did not read any of the reviews but saw all the shiny 4 and 5 star ratings and had to read it. At first I thought it was very at strange. I never read anything like this before and I didn't know what the heck was going on. Then when I thought I knew what was going on I couldn't put the book down. It was amazing. I loved the twists at the end and darn it I don't like cliffhangers but this one sure got my attention....
  • Brandi
    I know it's said a lot, but Into the Light is a perfect example of a book that shouldn't be spoiled. I think for most readers, going in with as little knowledge as possible would be best. If you are a fan of suspenseful readers, that will have your mind spinning, this is a book to read. Unfortunately for me, many of the twist and turns weren't all that surprising, which took away from the overall enjoyment of reading a dark and twisty suspense. I...

    Into the Light, the 1st book in Aleatha Romig's The Light Duet is a romantic, psychological thriller with a very intriguing and unique plot. The pacing begins a bit slow but picks up half way, by which time I was completely engrossed . Told from multiple POV'S, we get the different and yet interwoven stories of the three main characters. Stella Montgomery an investigative reporter who is trying to discover what happened to her friend's disappeara...

    Good lord. I absolutely love when a book leaves you feeling like "what the heck just happened". This book leaves me completely feeling off kilter. I thought I may have figured this one out, I came close but now I know I wasn't..... It's hard to review this kind of book with out giving anything away. There's several parts of this book so I'm gonna focus on the main part. Cults. You could call The Light one. Sara Adams wakes up from a horrific acci...
  • Sh3lly ✨ Bring on the Weird ✨
    I don't typically seek out contemporary mysteries or thrillers, but have been wanting to try this for awhile now. It's a psychological thriller, light on mystery, involving a woman who wakes up without memories and discovers she has a husband and is part of a fringe religious group (cult). There are multiple POVs, including Sara (the woman with amnesia), Stella, the investigator, searching for her missing friend, and then a few POVs from Jacob, S...

    ★★★★4 Wtf just happened Stars★★★★ I haven't been this upset by a cliffhanger in a really time and I don't know whether to continue my tantrum that I developed after finishing this, or just go completely insane for the next four months. My god, I don't think I will make it that long to be honest, especially with these effed up characters. Imagine waking up in the hospital with no memory of who you are and you're sight is temporari...

    Mind-Freaking-Blown.I haven't read a mystery/thriller in quite awhile now-so thought id pick one up last night. What I meant to do was read for maybe 45 min and then head to bed-well 3 hours later and at 330 am, I wound up finishing it. I literally could not put this one down. I thought this would have been just a typical murder mystery-I was so terribly wrong. The beginning of the book had me hooked- I seriously was super intrigued by the story ...
