Gillian Bronte Adams's Out of Darkness Rising is a medieval, fantasy retelling of Satan's fall from Heaven, Adam and Eve's mistake in the Garden of Eden, Satan's defeat, and the Lord's love that sets us free.
Though it took me a while to get into the story, I loved how Gillian portrayed Jesus. I've often imagined Him with a good-natured sense of humor, and I thoroughly enjoyed how His character was given just that.
The ending was excellent, as well! Though I didn't connect with Marya much over the course of the story, I began to like her character once she repented and accepted God.
The writing was good and though not as descriptive as I prefer, Out of Darkness Rising was a wonderful story of God's unending love, mercy, and compassion.
You may want to know: There is fantasy violence, as well as a couple un-descriptive human sacrifice scenes.
