He'd fled the Pacific Northwest in an attempt to elude the horrors that had plagued him since childhood, vowing never to return. When life's cruelty forces Malaki back to Washington State, he finds an unexpected light in Emsley.
Emsley Dalton is no stranger to life's dark twists. Struggling to find release from the vows that hold her bound and the soul-deep agony of loss, she finds herself wholly unprepared for the nightmare looming over Malaki.
Fighting to overcome deep scars of his past and present, Malaki finds an ally in Emsley, her warmth is a beacon in the deepest of his darkest nightmares. Drawn to the emotionally battered man she knows Malaki to be, Emsley finds a new purpose in the void her life had become. But can they find a way through the nightmare?
Together, there is always light Beyond the Dark.

This is a story that has its dark scenes and its light scenes and the melt together so well. The characters are well described, and you can see them as being real people with real dialogue. There is chemistry between the two main characters, but they deny it best they can. The story-line is interesting and held my attention throughout. The author seems to know or have done some research about PTSD and how it is treated. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Beyond the Dark is a standalone novel that is completely enriched with emotions. If you are looking for a book that WON'T engage you, then please, whatever you do, DON'T read this book! Because I can promise you this - it WILL engage you, from the very beginning. You are drawn into a story that will leave you hanging on every word, feeling every emotion. You will want to know more, even as you dread finding out the answers. The characters are fully-dimensional, broken in their own ways, and stronger for it - even if they don't realise that. They have to work to heal themselves, and you see them at their lowest points. My heart broke so often for Ky, I lost count. Within the first 13% of this book, I was crying! And that was the first scene with Penny and Connor that tipped me over the edge, not even Ky! Em and Ky balance each other out. Yes, they are both broken, but they help each other. Ky's ordeal was the one that was most prevalent due to where he is, and why he is there. My god, that was harrowing to read about, so I can't even imagine what it was like to write it. Em's life hasn't been all rainbows and unicorns either though, and I loved how Ky helped her, even when he wasn't at his best himself. Connor is a teddy bear that manages to wrap his whole family up in a bear-hug. Once he's adopted you, that's it. Such a fantastic character, and I think everyone deserves to have a Connor in their lives. Someone who supports you and listens, doesn't judge. The writing is exceptional, and the pacing is so very smooth. Every scene was clear in my mind, even when I didn't exactly want it to be! I love how Ms. Pratt can write such dark scenes whilst still giving you hope for a silver lining/ending. I can't reiterate again how much I thoroughly I loved this book. It is simply outstanding, and I highly recommend it. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.
