Lost In Darkness By Michelle Griep

Lost in Darkness
by Michelle Griep
Publisher: Barbour Books
ISBN: 978-1636090658

Last year I received this book as part of the bookstagram tour for JustRead Publicity. I'm trying to get through my tbr books and decided to finally read my first book by this author. Just... wow! It was fantastic.


Travel writer Amelia Balfour’s dream of touring Egypt is halted when she receives news of a revolutionary new surgery for her grotesquely disfigured brother. This could change everything, and it does. . .in the worst possible way.
Surgeon Graham Lambert has suspicions about the doctor he’s gone into practice with, but he can’t stop him from operating on Amelia’s brother. Will he be too late to prevent the man’s death? Or to reveal his true feelings for Amelia before she sails to Cairo?

My Review:

Ok, WOW! Lost in Darkness was such a fascinating book. This was my first time reading this author and I'm going to binge all of her books now! lol 

I just loved Amelia. She was so kind and loving even with the rough childhood she apparently had. It was clear the love she has for her brother even though she hasn't seen him for years and he's very disfigured. I mean, even I came to care for Colin!

Colin, while disfigured and living a solitary life, is such a kind soul. I was glad most of the book allowed us to get to know him.

The doctor was so easy to dislike! You could feel his diabolical mind oozing through the pages. And then there's Graham, the doctor's assistant, is a very compassionate man who sees this crazy surgeon doing unethical things, but is at a loss of how to stop him.

This story has all of the gothic feels you could hope for and more. There's even a surprise twist in the story with a side character that I thought was very clever.

About the Author:

I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I've been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write--except for that graffiti phase I went through as teenager.
