Synopsis:She’s walked into a massacre, stolen a BMW, and is running from the law for a crime she didn’t commit. Nineteen-year-old Leah’s life just went from mildly abnormal to totally crazy at lightning speed. But no one will believe that the shadow creatures are framing her for the murder, because she’s the only one that can see them. At least that’s what she thought.
An absence of light starts right into the action, it opens with the death of a family which is quite effective. The story from there takes the reader on a captivating journey. The idea of the shadows and what they are was very interesting. Through out the book small bits of information were given and new characters were introduced to drive the story on. The authors managed to keep the suspense quite high through out the story, the very end.
