In The
Absence of Light

Soon to be an

Amazon Bestseller!

Anticipated Release January 2022

Change is coming. Evil is descending like a swarm of locusts. First one terrible thing happens, then more, and soon the residents of this rural midwestern town feel the darkness like a current pulsing through the air. It’s an uneasy gut feeling, the kind that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck.

For people who live here, life had seemed normal. A quiet town with school activities and jobs, weekends of hunting, fishing, and gardening, Sunday mornings at church, these were the traditional lifestyles of Gibson Glen’s population. But not now, and no one is willing to say it out loud.

That is, until Gabe Matheson arrives in town. The college friend of a local pastor, Gabe has traveled the country for two decades, going where he is led, fighting spiritual battles alongside the Warriors of the Angelic Host. He discovered in college that he had a divine gift, the vision to see beyond this dimension into the worlds of the heavenly and of the damned. And now, in Gibson Glen, where Gabe has come for the most crucial battle of his life, he meets a young boy with supernatural abilities greater than his own.

War is looming. A battle of both flesh and Principalities, evil from high places and in unseen realms, Angels and Demons. But even Gabe isn’t aware that losing would have drastic global effects and that the fate of humanity rests in his hands.

Because darkness reigns – In the Absence of Light.

What Readers are Saying

Reminiscent of C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy, Ms Ferrari has written a fascinating piece of work. Ferrari's characters are realistic and relatable. She understands and communicates well the human condition, and her theological content is spot on. The novel is engaging from the first page to the last. I highly recommend this book!

This gripping story of the true battle facing our world had me spelbound from the first pages. CL Ferrari is a master at keeping this taut story at fever pitch. I had to portion it out to myself to not tear through it at one or two sittings, as I was so tempted to do. Find yourself in the characters, see our own world in this woven story, and watch our current world challenges enacted on this alternate stage.
