My review of Fractured Light (Saints and Sinners book 5) by Dayo Benson

Fractured Light: A Contemporary Christian Romance (Saints and Sinners Book 5)Fractured Light: A Contemporary Christian Romance by Dayo Benson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don't know how she does it. This book is even more intriguing than the last. I read it almost straight through. It reminds me of what could be an intriguing television series, yet it is written with much more realism than you'll see in a typical Christian novel. This is like a Christian version of the television series Famous in Love, but it's way more sinister. The darkness and light contrasted on a spiritual level is nothing you would see on secular TV. And the story is extremely blunt and honest. The way the author deepens the level of danger and darkens the plot, then pulls it back around only to let it delve into a darker place is incredibly difficult, but she pulls it off.

She did the same thing in the first series of novels I read by her titled Beauty for Ashes. I fell in love with those characters, too. She has a gift for bringing characters to a place where they are brought to their knees and only God can see them through. And one truth really shines in this series. You can't change for someone else. You have to find it within yourself (the will to change) and sometimes it won't work without divine intervention. At the same time she shows that the impossible really is possible with God and she does it in such a way that you believe it. Nothing feels contrived, glossed over, or cheesy. I love her books.
