Out of Darkness by Erynn Newman

“A flash whited out the horizon. She saw nothing else as she was hurled backward.”

Out of Darkness - Ebook Small Elisabeth Allen gave her heart to Jesus as a little girl and to Drew Marek as a teenager.When their wedding day finally arrives, it’s the happiest day of her life–until a car bomb transforms her dream come true into a living nightmare. As Best Man at the wedding, Gabriel Di Salvo promises Drew–his best friend and CIA partner–he’ll look after Elisabeth, but he never dreams it will become necessary so soon. As Elisabeth struggles to put the pieces of her life back together without Drew, Gabe becomes her rock, and as they share their grief and begin to heal, their friendship gradually deepens into something more. Three years later, Gabe and Elisabeth are planning a future together when he receives a shocking call from the one man who can upend his happiness: Drew. Suspecting someone at the CIA is behind his abduction, Drew refuses to come home. Instead, he asks Gabe to bring Elisabeth to him. Now Gabe just has to figure out how to let her go. Drew and Elisabeth race across Europe, dodging international arms dealers and attempting to reclaim what was stolen from them. But years of captivity and torture have left their mark on Drew. He is no longer the same boy Elisabeth fell in love with, but he is still her husband, and she’s determined to build something new and leave her relationship with Gabe in the past, if her heart will get the memo. When their enemies close in and the threat of a terrorist attack escalates, Gabe may be the only person they can trust. Drew, Elisabeth, and Gabe are thrown into a fight for their lives–one that will test their loyalties to God, country . . . and each other.

My Review:

This book kept me in suspense from the first page to the last. It is a well written story that is full of adventure, mystery and intrique. Erynn Newmann did a great job creating her character’s to be believable and relatable. It’s hard to decide which character I liked the best.  The story flowed well from start to finish. It was intense in some parts! I loved how she weaved forgiveness, second chances and mercy throughout this story.  I think that the reader can take away the same truth’s the character’s learned.  It’s hard to expand on the story without giving away some of the plot so you’ll have to read it for yourself. I really hope she writes another book whether it be a sequel or another standalone.

I recommend this book to my family and friends.

I received this book for my honest review.
