Light in the Shadows (A. Meredith Walters)


How do you keep going when you feel like your life is over?

Maggie never thought she’d see Clay again. So, she attempts to put her life back together after her heart has been shattered to pieces. Moving on and moving forward, just as Clay wanted her to.

Clay never stopped thinking of Maggie. Even after ripping their lives apart and leaving her behind to get the help he so desperately needed. He is healing…slowly. But his heart still belongs to the girl who tried to save him.

When a sudden tragedy brings Maggie and Clay face to face again, nothing is the same. Yet some things never change. Can the darkness that threatened to consume them be transformed into something else and finally give them what they always wanted? And can two people who fought so hard to be together, finally find their happiness? Or will their demons and fear drive them apart for good?

The thing about love, is even when it destroys you, it has a way of mending what is broken. And in the shadows, you can still see the light.

What. A. Ride. What a good series. Although I’m sad it’s over (and I have no more Clay and Maggie) these books will for sure stay with me forever. I am so happy to of taken this plunge with an author I had never heard of and a series of books I had never heard of. I mean, ugh. I loved them. I want to yell it across the world. I just get so pumped when I think about them.

The thing I liked most about this one was how much ALL of the characters grew from the first book. They had adapted and changed so tremendously I am still in awe. A. Meredith Walters brought these characters to life in this book. How she did that, I have no idea. But for whatever reason, I eternally grateful.

With this book, 80% of it was through Clay and his perspective. Now, I love me some male POV as it is but with Clay we NEEDED it. We needed to see his struggles with everyday life and his illness through his eyes and his mind. I needed to see how he felt about Maggie through his eyes. And I wasn’t let down. The author exceeded all of my hopes for Clay and his POV.

This is the kind of book you NEED to have after reading the first book. You need it for closure and for hope. But this whole series as a whole was just wonderful. It was powerful and heart wrenching. I don’t know if I will ever get over Clay. I don’t want to. I want him and Maggie to stay with me for eternity.

“Healing and endurance. And most of all courage. I finally felt, after all this time, that I was mastering these qualities.”

“The thing about shadows is that they’re not all darkness. You need to have light to have shadows. So just look for it.”
