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.

A Good Continuation of the Series
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.
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.
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.
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.)
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.
