Book Tour + Review + #Giveaway: The Pearl in the Darkness (Light of Mine Series Book 1) by Santana Saunders @authorsantanas @SDSXXTours


The Pearl in the Darkness

Light of Mine Series Book 1

by Santana Saunders

Genre: Apocalyptic Fantasy 


We went too far. Father is mad. No one make a sound…”

Filled with the suspense and lyrical writing that draws readers to The Stand by Stephen King, a witty humor in the tradition of Andy Weir, The Martian, and a fierce female lead for fans of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

In a not-so-distant future, recurring acts of terrorism lead to the abolishment of all religion. Believers taking a stand against the ruling are placed in institutions. All existing Bibles, Quranands and Vedas are destroyed—or so they thought.

Leora Smith, a witty, thirty-year-old medical transcriptionist, lives a quiet life due to a debilitating disorder and unwavering faith that must be kept hidden. Her world is turned upside down when a celestial being informs her of the forthcoming apocalypse and assigns her to recruit experts imperative to the subsistence of the society that will remain when the dust settles.

Each recruit has a story that can only be seen behind closed doors. Leora’s childhood friend and numerous enlightened allies band together in an effort to persuade the best and brightest.

As nature bends in accordance to the plan, Leora's preconceived notions of everything good and evil are about to be tested.

The moment I saw that The Pearl in the Darkness was a dystopian, apocalyptic story I knew I had to read it as those are two of my favorite genres of all time. I was also drawn in by the summary. But when I picked up The Pearl in the Darkness and started reading I realized right away that it was not what I was expecting after reading the summary but needless to say I loved it and I was hooked. It was on then as I could not turn the pages fast enough.

The Pearl in the Darkness is an end-times story. It follows Leora Smith and her best friend Hollis as the world comes to an end. Leora is told by archangels that the world is going to end and she is then given the task of finding the right and best people for the new world that is to come. She is given specific rules to follow when choosing the right people.

The Pearl in the Darkness is based on biblical stories and when I was reading it, it reminded me a lot of some stories that are in the Bible. The Pearl in the Darkness was a fun, unique, and intriguing, fantasy story. I can’t wait to read the sequel and hopefully soon!

If you like dystopian, apocalyptic stories with angels and biblical stories then I do believe you would very much enjoy The Pearl in the Darkness. One-click your copy of The Pearl in the Darkness today for another epic dystopian adventure!

Santana Saunders grew up along the Missouri River in rural North Dakota, where the sandbars were far-off lands and the canoes were pirate ships.

Santana went on to pursue a career in marketing, and creative writing went on the back-burner. In 2019, she and her family found themselves relocating to Florida. Sandbars and canoes quickly became beaches and ocean. This change of scenery inspired her to return to writing.

Today, she is a Florida-based author of fantasy and thriller novels. When she isn't reading or writing stories she is playing at the beach with her husband and three daughters or attempting a DIY home project that will surely take weeks longer than anticipated to accomplish.
