Cloak of the Light
Wars of the Realm, Book 1
Drew is caught in a world of light – just inches away from the dark.
What if there was a world beyond our vision, a world just fingertips beyond our reach? What if our world wasn’t beyond their influence?
Tragedy and heartache seem to be waiting for Drew Carter at every turn, but college offers Drew a chance to start over—until an accident during a physics experiment leaves him blind and his genius friend, Benjamin Berg, missing.
As his sight miraculously returns, Drew discovers that the accident has heightened his neuron activity, giving him skills and sight beyond the normal man. When he begins to observe fierce invaders that no one else can see, he questions his own sanity, and so do others. But is he insane or do the invaders truly exist?
With help from Sydney Carlyle, a mysterious but kind girl who offers encouragement through her faith, Drew searches for his missing friend, Ben, who seems to hold the key to unlocking this mystery. As the dark invaders close in, will he find the truth in time?
For ages 12 and up.
“The invisible world gets a makeover in Chuck Black’s Cloak of the Light. Often
reading like a thriller, this fresh take on the unseen inspires and entertains in
equal measure. Reader of all ages will enjoy this one.”

“Bring on the battle! Cloak of the Light is a journey you won’t quickly forget. Angels
and demons clash in an epic story line laden with spiritual warfare. I loved
—- Heather Burch, author of The Halfling series
“Over the last several years, my family and I have come to appreciate Chuck Black’s works, and Cloak of the Light is no different. It’s set in the modern world rather than the ancient times of his Kingdom Series. We have come to expect two features from a Chuck Black work: allegory based in spiritual matters and illumination of the spiritual warfare that happens around us every day. Many young people long for adventure, and this book has it. What I appreciate most is that adventure and spiritual battle are presented as common rather than special. As Christians, our adventure is in living for our Lord, and this is what Chuck Black brings out so deftly in his allegories. This is a great book for all young people, especially young men.”
