Publisher's Summary

Nine months ago Sara Adams awoke with no memory. The man holding her hand told her she's a member of The Light, a tight-knit religious group led by the terrifying and charismatic Father Gabriel. As a woman in the community of The Light, her duty is to be unquestionably obedient and to submit to the will of her husband.

But as Sara's memory starts to return and she remembers her past, she sees that everything she's been told is a lie. The Light is an insidious and dangerous organization, and its corrupting influence reaches well beyond the confines of the remote campus where Sara is being held.

With everything at stake, Sara struggles to sort out her true memories from her indoctrination. The desire to escape consumes her, but who can she trust? And which other followers of The Light were forced into this life, brainwashed to believe they belonged? The more she remembers, the more it becomes clear that Jacob, the man who calls himself her husband, is keeping shattering secrets of his own.

But Sara cannot flee alone, leaving innocents behind. She must fight to extinguish The Light.

    Story
    "Liars and Polar Bears and Cults... Oh My!"

    WOW! This is one incredibly good book. The story is nail bitingly taughtly told and covers all characters points of view to make this a very realistic story. This is book is part two and the series should be read in order. This is told so well that it makes it very believable, an almost ripped from the headlines cult run by a psychopathic misogynist. The women are so poorly treated it made my blood boil. For a book to elicit this kind of reaction from me makes it an exception.
    The three narrators did an Excellent job.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    Story
    "Super disturbing!"

    So, take a cult, escapees, the government, and the police... squish them altogether into the thriller of the year, and you MIGHT have some idea of the scope of this story. Seriously, I have some friends who were "lost" to a religious cult for a time, and I never could have imagined anything quite like this.

    Story
    "If you dislike dark novels look elsewhere!"

    What a great story! This novel is the sequel to Into the Light which MUST be listened to first; think of them as one long novel. Away From the Dark is profane, sexually explicit, very dark, and WONDERFUL. It reminds me a lot of JA Redmerski's In The Company of Killers series. Narration with 3 narrators is superb. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Story
    "Wish there was a 3rd book after the Epilogue"

    Loved this series and was very impressed with Romig's ability to capture the audience. When I first started listening I was skeptical because the character building was lengthy and the religious aspect was slightly boring but once the first book picked up speed I listened to the second book in 2 days. Definitely twists and turns I was (and wasn't) expecting which is always nice.

    Story
    "Great slowly evolving mystery"

    I really enjoyed both parts 1 & 2 of this story. It has all the right elements; mystery, suspense, intrigue and surprising twists that kept me guessing until the end. My only criticism, and the reason for giving 4 stars instead of 5, is the awkward, soap-opera inspired descriptive sex scenes. They seem to have been taken from a dollar store romance novel and dropped into a clever, mystery novel. They nearly ruined this story for me. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.

    Story
    "BRIDES OF THE LIGHT ARE TO FULFILL FATHER GABRIEL"

    He slices their skin so the darkness can escape otherwise he wouldn't be able to enter them.

    Father Gabriel is one f--ked up megalomaniac. I have never heard such crazy.

    If you have listened to 'Into The Light' you have to listen to "Away From The Dark." This is one of the best followups to a book I've ever heard. It kept me intrigued, excited, and disgusted. The ending is full of suspense and surprises, definitely not a let down.

    Aleatha Romig has written her best novel yet...she has an amazing talent. David Ledoux, Erin deWard, Kevin T. Collins, gave an all consuming performance.

    Definitely worth the credit/$$.

    Story
    "You could have skipped the first part"
    What disappointed you about Away from the Dark?

    it ended up being very soap-operaish


    Would you ever listen to anything by Aleatha Romig again?

    probably not


    What three words best describe the narrators’s performance?

    the narration for Sara/Stella was good. She didn't sound like she was just reading. But the narrator for Jacob/Jacoby tried too hard and you could tell he just read


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the story premise was good

    Story
    "Know you must read both books"

    This is a story that spans two books. Neither one stands alone. The story started slowly and it took me a while to get into it but once I did I didn't want to stop listening. The female narrator for Sarah was very annoying at the beginning but again, give it a chance. The annoying inflections change as the story progresses. Even though the story is completed at the end of the second book, there were enough hanging threads for a third book. If one comes out I will definitely read it.
