Light of the Last by Chuck Black

I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely.

The Synopsis:

After an accident left him temporarily blind, Drew Carter didn’t just regain his sight. He now sees what others can’t imagine–an entire spiritual realm of mighty beings at war.

Forget the gift, Drew just wants his life back. Part of that involves Sydney Carlyle, a woman he is inexplicably drawn to. When he’s offered the chance to become a CIA agent, it seems the way to redeem his past. The only problem–his visions of the supernatural realm are increasing in frequency.

It’s up to the warrior angel Validus and his hand-picked team of heavenly agents to protect the unbelieving Drew. Validus now knows that the young man is at the epicenter of a global spiritual war, and the angels must use a millennia of battle experience keep Drew alive, for the Fallen want him dead.

Surrounded by spiritual warriors and targeted by demons, Drew’s faced with an impossible decision that will forever alter the destiny of America…and his own soul.


In this third installment of the Wars of the Realm series, Light of the Last has the perfect amounts of suspense and believable characters to keep it’s plot engaging and thrilling, causing many to call it the best book of the series.

The intense battles of the supernatural realm (angels and demons) keep the book from having a lot of physical bloodshed, however the graphic battles are still very intense because demons fight with much deadlier weapons and with much deadlier consequences. In addition to this suspense, the plot line also deals with large amounts of terrorism, diseases, and plots against America that are incredibly believable.

There is not any cussing (that I caught) and the romance was very mild, only containing a few kisses (not considerably detailed). The scenes featuring demons do tend to be very dark and may cause unwanted fear in younger readers, but this book is extremely eye-opening to the reality of the supernatural realm all around us, and for that it is very well done.

Overall, this book (along with the entirety of the series) is a wonderful read and I give it a full 5 out of 5 stars; recommending it to an audience of 16+.
