Seven years after the haunting events of Seven Roses, Ellen and her best friend, Vicki, have children of their own, Annie and Anthony, and life is good until loss reveals the darkness hidden in plain sight. While Annie is blessed with light, Anthony is cursed with a soul-sucking darkness. But the two children love each other and by the time they are teenagers they are lovers ready to face the world come what may.
However, the darkness that holds Anthony in its thrall is slowly killing him and fearing for both his sanity and his life, he persuades Annie to leave America and embark on a quest that will lead him to the source of his angst. They disappear and their distraught parents follow a lukewarm trail left by Annie that leads them to a tiny town in Italy where the riddle of Anthony’s possession is finally answered.
Or is it?
In a page-turning thrill-ride, Tremblay delivers a spine-chilling story that will have you reaching for the nightlight.
“Light Over Dark is a remarkable sequel to L.L. Tremblay’s debut novel Seven Roses. One word: brilliant!”
~Phillip B. Goldfine, Film, Television & Broadway Producer
“Ms Tremblay is a superb storyteller. In this sequel to her mesmeric debut novel Seven Roses, we meet Ellen as an adult and follow the luminous firefly flicker of a life that straddles two worlds. The gossamer-thin veil lifts in times of trauma and we hear the whispered assurances of angels who shimmer off these pages lifting the thrilling and at times desperately sad tale into a place of light. Indeed so powerful is Ms Tremblay’s magic that I had no difficulty believing in the strength of love and light to defray even the most saturating dark. I loved Seven Roses but I love Light Over Dark even more. Perhaps because Ms Tremblay has refined her voice to such a perfect pitch that her narrative is impossible to put down.”
~Wendy Waters author Catch the Moon, Mary and Fields of Grace and Paradis Inferno
“Rarely has a book captivated me from the first page until the last paragraph, but L.L. Tremblay has done it again! If I had to choose one word to describe this book, it would be WOW. Honestly though, one word isn’t enough. Light Over Dark is amazing, incredible, a true-page-turner, exceptional and brilliantly written. I love this book and highly recommend it!”
