Wow! Just, wow! That's exactly what I thought when I finished reading Dark Nights of the Soul, the second book in the Nathen Turner Thriller Series by author Andrew Langley. This book grabbed me by the throat from the very first page and kept me obsessively reading until the very last. This book continues the story of supernatural expert Nathen Turner, this time as he tries to help Mike Fletcher, a photographer who has devastatingly found himself blinded due to his multiple sclerosis. Mike fled to the Scottish highlands, trying to make sense of his new reality, but instead finds himself embroiled in a mystery that might only be explained by the supernatural, witchcraft, or worse. Nathen is called in to help, but when he arrives, he finds that Mike has gone missing. Now Nathen believes he might be the only person who can save Mike from an evil that has been uncovered, if he isn't the next victim himself.
I loved Dark Nights of the Soul. Loved. It. How's that for a review? Well, it's definitely how I felt about this excellent new read by author Andrew Langley. The author has done a fantastic job in creating characters that his readers will connect with, relate to, and truly come to care about, thinking about them long after the book is finished. If that isn't a hallmark of a great author, I'm not sure what is. His story line is exciting, thrilling, and a true mystery. I was surprised by the end, and that rarely happens to me anymore. I am so pleased to be able to highly recommend Dark Nights of the Soul to any reader who enjoys supernatural fiction, mysteries, or just a great read of fiction in general. I look forward to reading more from the obviously talented author, Andrew Langley, as soon as I possibly can!
