Drew Carter has faced a lot of tragedy and opposition in his life, and college seems like it will be a fresh start. Instead, Drew and his friend Ben may have tapped into something absolutely terrifying. While searching for the truth, Drew is injured in a physics lab accident that gifts him with remarkable abilities. The experiment proved to be a success, but what Drew can now see leaves both him and Ben exposed to a whole new host of dangers.
Cloak of the Light is a well-written YA book that would be appropriate for older readers due to its focus on life in college and after graduation. The characters are complex and readers will want to know what happens to them next. The book features plenty of action, mystery and a character wrestling with his beliefs. A word of warning: this one ends on a cliffhanger, so be prepared.
