Publisher's Summary

After a year of picking up the pieces of his shattered life, former US marshal Micah Beasley takes a job as bodyguard for a spoiled rich kid who can't leave his house. It's supposed to be a cupcake assignment. He just needs to get back in the game. What could possibly go wrong?
Brilliant and incredibly talented, Christopher (Kit) Auberon wears tragedy as a second skin. Kit is all that's left of a powerful family. Seemingly forgotten, he's spent his entire life in seclusion at the family estate, and he likes it that way. He's free to play his games and create worlds without ever having to set foot in the real one.
Kit's past is anything but forgotten. When death threats become real threats, Micah and Kit are forced to put their differences aside to discover who wants Kit dead.
But there are monsters in Kit's closet that should never be disturbed.
Warning: Dark subject. Violence. The usual stuff.

Good Mystery / Broken Characters = Great Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Light from the Dark to be better than the print version?

Love a good mystery with broken characters coming together to help heal each other. The story of Christopher and his battle with his unique autism issues. Mercy Celeste is always a delight. She has such a great imagination and control of her characters when traveling through the obstacles her creative mind sets for them to tackle. This audio version was just as enjoyable as the printed. I was excited to see one of my favorite authors releasing on audio. I hope she releases more


What was one of the most memorable moments of Light from the Dark?

When Christopher had his big "episode" and had to be put in an isolated room. How Micha was able to pull Christopher out of his "darkness". Beautiful


Have you listened to any of Derrick McClain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, only one. TJ Klune's "How To Be a Normal Person". I LOVED both performances but it took me a little while to drop Gus (one of my favorite all time characters) out of my mind. Derrick's voice is very distinct but he does a wonderful job.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and I believe I did.


Any additional comments?

As I said I love Mercy Celeste and hope she releases more of her work on Audible.

Loved the autistic mc and liked the story

I really liked Kit and his view of the world from his tower. I didnt dislike the other MC but just didnt love him either. And i think the narrator may detract from the story.I cant really put my finger on it because he isnt bad at all - i just dont feel him somehow. Some parts he is very good at like the computer voice part, but other parts kind of need more feeling. The suspense part of the story is good and not at all black and white because Kit is a difficult troubled person with a lot of psychological issues both due to his autism and the trauma and he does not react like other people. It is a long story and i kept thinking it was over (suspence resolved and so on) but discovered that there were about an hour left. It is not a bad listen all in all and if u enjoy suspence M/m Hea u will like it. Maybe reading it would be better but it can be listened to, too.
