Summary

Out of Darkness is about Reece, one of the first Galdoni allowed to go to school as part of the integration program. He combats hostility, hypocrisy, and his own instincts to fight until the day Ava walks into the classroom. Reece is torn by the way he is drawn to the female Galdoni and what she believes about him. When a threat attacks the school, Reece confronts pain, fear, and heartache to ensure that Ava, the school, and the rest of the Galdoni will never again become a target.

I enjoyed this very much!

The narrator was great. He brought suspense and humor in generous doses.

Cheree is a talented author who should not be overlooked. Her character development is as good as any in America.

Enjoyed :)

I haven't read the first two books, or listened to the audio (if there is any) but this was a really easy listen and made a good story on it's own. So I might go back and check them out.

I think the story was interesting. And all about fitting in, doing what we must to just keep on going. The MC as a character was strong and had decent values. There were times I really thought he would snap and then the further along I got the more I understood all the reasons behind this world. It is aimed more for a younger audience, though some of the themes were in fact pretty adult and the reactions surrounding the Galdoni in general are harsh.

I enjoyed spending time with Erin as a narrator, he's a nice voice and fitted the character perfectly. The performance was great and the right tension and pacing when needed. Both male and female voices were distinct and it was easy to soon learn who was who. There was a large enough cast for Erin to master, and I think he did a great job.

Lots of tension and drama and I felt fully entertained while listening and driving. Thank you both. I'll keep an ear out for some more.

A Good Continuation of the Series

What made the experience of listening to Out of Darkness the most enjoyable?

A mix of the narration and the characters. I feel like saying the characters is a bit of a cop-out, since of course I find all of the characters I like from the previous books + new ones an enjoyable part of the book.

What did you like best about this story?

The high school intrigue felt more in place here than in the first book and that lead to me liking it a lot more. And as often as I claim not to like high school drama, I love it. Especially high school drama mixed with civil rights drama and serious danger.

Which character – as performed by Erin C Gray – was your favorite?

Ignoring all the more minor characters from the previous two books that I love, I'm going with Reece or Saro. I got plenty of time to empathize with Reece and Saro does a good job of playing Team Mom. I would say Scary Team Mom, but Team Mom is usually pretty terrifying.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Everyone's reaction after the fight in Chapter 8 when the baddies are searching for Ava. Everyone's concerned, but mostly celebratory and familial. (Also, Saro is pretty great in it. Saro is always pretty great.)

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.(I also openly admit being in love with Erin C. Gray's voice. If I wasn't so interested in Ms. Alsop's story, I'd try and use this like a bedtime story.) I can't wait for a fourth book.

1st Time Narrating?

I've enjoyed this series, but the narration of this last book made it difficult to keep listening. Gray brings the definition of "Shatnering" to whole new heights. His ability to add unnecessary, overly dramatic, lengthy pauses to the dialogue is unrivaled. At times it felt like he recorded the script one or two words at a time and then poorly spliced it all together. As a fan of the series I toughed it out until the end but I will avoid his narrations in the future.

Fun book!

Hadn't read any book in this series, but felt like it was a good starting point as it was told. Makes me want to read more in the series. Reader did a great job conveying each character as unique through various voices. Good pacing of reading. Will look for more from this reader.
