Nine months ago, Sara Adams awoke with no memory. The man holding her hand told her she’s a member of The Light, a tight-knit religious group led by the terrifying and charismatic Father Gabriel. As a woman in the community of The Light, her duty is to be unquestionably obedient and to submit to the will of her husband.

But as Sara’s memory starts to return and she remembers her past, she sees that everything she’s been told is a lie. The Light is an insidious and dangerous organization, and its corrupting influence reaches well beyond the confines of the remote campus where Sara is being held.

With everything at stake, Sara struggles to sort out her true memories from her indoctrination. The desire to escape consumes her, but who can she trust? And which other followers of The Light were forced into this life, brainwashed to believe they belonged? The more she remembers, the more it becomes clear that Jacob, the man who calls himself her husband, is keeping shattering secrets of his own.

But Sara cannot flee alone, leaving innocents behind. She must fight to extinguish The Light.

I managed to break through my podcast haze and finally finished AWAY FROM THE DARK by Aleatha Romig. Her first traditionally published series which tells the tale of an investigative journalist who got caught in the web of a deadly cult.

Limetown by Two Up Productions

Narrated By:  Annie-Sage Whitehurst
Launched: July 29, 2015
Episodes: Season 1-3 Episodes
Length: 25-35 mins.
Genre: Sci-Fi | Mystery | Thriller

Limetown is a fictional story told as a series of investigative reports by Lia Haddock (played by Annie-Sage Whitehurst), a journalist for American Public Radio (APR), detailing the disappearance of over 300 people at a neuroscience research facility in Tennessee.

It had me at Tennessee. 

As a Tennessean, I'm naturally drawn to any story set here. The more fucked-up, the better. I'd like to pretend that these strange but interesting things are happening in my town (which is as exciting as white bread btw) and I'm actually in the midst of something exciting!  

LIMETOWN, to me, is like a mash-up of Roanoke with all these people disappearing mysteriously, and that old sci-fi show, Eureka, except that it's not funny. For a podcast that only has 6 episodes running at half-hour more or less, the serial packed quite the mysterious punch!

Shitstorms, Heartbreakers, Gossipmongers, & Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is in a couple of days and everyone here in the US are gearing for the long weekend in some shape or form whether it's planning The Meal, long weekend somewhere, working overtime for that extra cash, or just stay-cationing. 

A few of you have posted your Gratitude posts and for sure it reinforced and reminded me of all the things I'm thankful for: family, friends, job, blessings, etc.

Bought, Borrowed & Bagged [224]: #LemonySnicket #NPH

BB&B (Bought, Borrowed and Bagged) is a weekly meme, inspired my The Story Siren and Pop Culture Junkie, where we share with you the books that we have bought, borrowed or bagged (won or gifted) plus a recap of the previous week's reviews, upcoming reviews, ongoing events and book movie or television news. 

BB&B is an homage Barron's Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning's smash hit series, Fever.
