DARK JUSTICE: A Thriller that I Promise will Wear you Out!
DARK JUSTICE by Donnie Light, ISBN #1449596878, ISBN-13: 978-1449596873, Buy on Amazon, Paperback and Kindle here (link).
In 1806 an escaped slave is on the run, seeking justice for crimes against him by his evil white master. He knows he can get some help from the ancient religion of his African ancestors, so he seeks out a priest (another slave) to help him. Over time, we find that the cure for the man’s troubles is extremely potent and terrifying. Running as a parallel story, told every other chapter, is what happens when a hundred years later, the African cure that the slave used (Eater of Hearts) is uncovered, activated, and seeks to kill our hero, Galen. With my seat belt fastened, as the reader, I began to run with Galen and his girl Audra as this horrible nightmare chased him without stopping and worked to destroy him and anyone in its path.
DARK JUSTICE by Donnie Light is a tightly written, fast-paced thriller that won’t let you put it down to rest. Not only was I worn out from worrying about the characters, I was anxious about the outcome. What was going to happen? Who would live and who would die? Thoughtfully composed with characters that were real and three dimensional, even the ending came as a surprise to me. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen…
