"Cloak of the Light" by Chuck Black

An accident leaves a bright college student blind and causes a good friend to go missing. What happens when Drew's sight returns and he begins to see people others can't see? Are the invaders real or just a figment of his imagination?

Drew is a young man who struggles through life. Nothing seems to come easy or just go his way. He has two good friends, Ben and Sydney, and as much encouragement as he gets, Drew always feels behind them. College is the chance to change that, until a physics experiment goes horribly wrong. Drew finds that he is blind and that Ben is missing. Drew's sight does return, but now he can see people that others can't see. Who are they and where is Ben? Drew soon finds out that these "people" are not as they appear and he has to not only look for Ben, but also try to stay safe. Can he keep them from finding out that he can see them? Can Ben trust God to help him navigate this difficult spiritual battle?

This is a wonderful young adult book. The beginning is a little slow, but the book picks up and makes you want to know what will happen. Teen boys will especially like Drew and the way he works through things. This is the first book I have read by Mr. Black, but it won't be my last. I received my review copy from the Blogging for Books Program in exchange for an honest review.
