Shadow of Light is a perfect blend of theology, science fiction and romance that leaves the reader hanging on by a thread wondering what antics Sarius (Mrs. Kelly) will think of next. Robert Power has so well defined his characters, including Mrs. Kelly that they fairly leap off the page. Sarius, the mischievous junior angel with a huge heart and an even bigger mouth is just one of this story‘s many heroes. All in all, this tale is a stirring novel of faith of a scale never seen before.

Just supposing there were a convergence of a doomsday event from outer space and a lower order angel's inhabiting the body of an elderly lady who just happened to die on the altar of the church .
Throw in a dysfunctional childless marriage, a divorced astronomer, and a snobby country club.
Mix in a touch of larceny, an impoverished parish, and a pinch of greed. Stir in an encounter with the Most High, and you have a thought provoking work of fiction.
In the meantime, you've gained some insights into what the heavenly orders might be like. You've seen a realistic appraisal of human nature. And you've had a rollicking good read.

I had the good fortune to read an unedited version of this book. The author Rodney Christian Power is a friend of mine. This is the first of his manuscripts to be published. Rod is a wonderful story teller.
His characters, like Brook Hennessey, are nicely flawed, no super heroes or plastic people here. The story line is very unusual. It's an end-of-the-world thriller, complete with a pissed off god and a junior angel who does not follow orders all that well.
As improbable as it sounds, Rod manages to make it all seem quite believable. It's the kind of book that once you start reading it, it is next to impossible to put down. I'm looking forward to its release.
