The Dark Light

Written by Julia Bell

The Dark Light Synopsis

'Ten minutes to midnight!' Jonathan shouts over the sound of the blazing fire. Sparks rise into the sky and mingle with the stars. 'Only ten minutes!' Bevins says, falling down on his knees. 'So it begins.' Rebekah has lived on the island her whole life, and it's only now that she's starting to wonder what she might experience outside her strict religious community. Alex has been sent to the island to escape her dark past, and through her eyes it's a dark and sinister place. Thrown together by chance, Rebekah and Alex strike up an unlikely friendship and it's together that they attempt to break free of their worlds and make a world of their own. But when a kiss between the girls is witnessed by an islander there is no escape they can make - the Rapture is coming for them all.

The Dark Light Press Reviews

Religious fanaticism and Gothic horror go together like a horse and carriage, and when you throw an island into the equation things can only get better. . . . a blend of Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit and The Wicker Man that is as savage as it is suspenseful. --Independent
