Review: Charging the Darkness

Happy Friday, Reader Friends!

I know this isn’t our normal Friday post. Due to family issue, I did not have time to put together the Sale’s post. Instead, I’m taking the time to bring you my thoughts on J. Rodes’ final book in the Uncloaked trilogy. If you missed my review on Book 1 or 2, check them out here and there.

About the Book

The Blurb: “You were not saved for this…

The veil has been torn, but Braxton Luther still has more to do.

The captive Uncloaked have been freed, and the people know the dark truth. A rebellion against the Party has begun, but the question lingers among those who are safely hidden in the Refuge–what will happen to their broken nation? Secrets and shame, resentment and hatred continue to shake the nation, now divided.

What will it take to break the grip of the Party? Beyond that, is there any hope of healing after the damage of the darkness?”

Sigh, it’s over and I don’t know what to do now. The Uncloaked series started so fiercely and entrenched my heart so quickly that now I’m wondering what I should do. Not with my reading time, because there are always books to read, but with the questions this book raises.

“What will you do with what you believe?”

It’s a powerful question. One I’m not yet sure I have a complete answer to. This whole series has tugged at my belief system and caused me to think. But Charging the Darkness is different than the others. We get to see life through Eliza’s eyes (aka her pov). Y’all, it’s heart wrenching and powerful all at once.

Her fight to get back to the light is tough and one that kept me turning the pages. Plus, there were some shockers in here. Like put the book down shockers. Thankfully I recovered enough to continue to the end. And I’m so glad I did.

Charging the Darkness is real. It’s raw. It’s faith.

*I received a free copy from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.
