Blog tour: LIght Up The Dark by Suki Fleet

Light Up The Dark - Suki Fleet

Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Cover Design: Natasha Snow 


For two years Nicky has wandered the dark empty corridors of the overgrown Thorn Hall, unseen and untouched, feeling like a ghost. His only company, the cold man who promised to keep him safe from harm, Lance.

But when Lance dies, Nicky’s assurance of safety disintegrates and his world suddenly becomes a lot more real and a lot more dangerous. Scared to leave the house, Nicky longs for daylight. He employs a gardener to clear the over-grown bushes and vines that have nearly swallowed Thorn Hall whole.

The last thing Nicky expects a little light to do is show him something to fight for.

Eighteen months in a young offenders’ institute has taught Cai two things: he occupies the playful puppy end of the How Dangerous Are You? spectrum, and he has an unfortunate knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Desperate for a job, he takes the first offer he gets. Even though Thorn Hall creeps the hell out of him and he barely knows one end of a pair of garden shears from the other.

Things start to fall apart when Cai is drawn into Nicky’s strange world of sticky notes and secrets. Cai finds he is now a target, blamed for a crime he didn’t commit. Desperate not to go back to prison, he digs deep and risks all the good things in life to help Nicky run.

But now Nicky has someone he wants to protect, he knows he can’t run any more.

Amazing. Simply amazing.

If you're not careful, you could drown in the emotions that pour from the pages. Courage. Fear. Loneliness, Protectiveness, Rage. All of these are found in abundance within the pages of this book.

It's easy to feel Nicky's fear after being completely alone for 2 years, several months of which were without gas or electricity. If I were in Nicky's shoes, I'd probably have gone insane from the loneliness. I don't think I'd be able to allow Cai into my life at all, let alone completely, albeit very slowly.

I applaud Cai's willingness to risk everything in order to keep Nicky safe.

There is much more I would like to say about this amazing book, but to do so I would have to give out spoilers, which I refuse to do. You'll just have to read it for yourself, which I strongly recommend you do.

I give Light Up The Dark 5 out of 5 stars.
