Raechel here for a moment – I will be passing off the “mic” here to MacKenzie in just a second, but first I wanted to say how excited I am for this book!! “Out of the Dark” has been an eagerly anticipated novel, and it’s finally here! So thrilling. And inspiring – I’ve watched as this author has poured out her heart in this novel, sometimes struggling when the words didn’t come. But God has brought it to completion, as He promises, and how utterly glorious that is! If you haven’t read the first book in this series, I definitely encourage you to do so. You can find “Not Abandoned” here. Anyway, now I will let our lovely author take the stage, and share more about “Out of the Dark”!! Don’t forget to check out the giveaway, and character spotlight too!!
Welcome to the “Out of the Dark” blog tour! I’m so thankful Rae is letting me share her blog to share with all of you about my new book release. “Out of the Dark” is book two in my Mission for Freedom series and is a continuation of my debut novel “Not Abandoned”. This new story took two long years to complete and a lot of prayer. If I didn’t have God, you wouldn’t be reading about this new release right now. I faced mountains of opposition during the writing of this book, and have even felt attacks from the enemy right up to release day. But I believe God is going to do great things through this story, and my prayer is that He will use it to touch each of your lives. But enough of my rambling! On to the fun stuff! ;) Read on to see the full description of “Out of the Dark”, view the cover photo (*squeals* Isn’t it lovely?!?!) and find out how YOU can win a FREE copy of my new release!

It’s not over yet…
It’s been three years since Haley Hampton rescued her sister, Avery, from a human trafficking ring. They are still struggling through the aftermath as both women desperately long for healing to come. But the emotional wounds are not easily forgotten. And the past is quickly catching up to them. A string of death threats leaves Haley on the hunt for a potential killer. As tensions run high, a single mistake could jeopardize Avery’s life.
Then Haley encounters Elaine, a young teen trapped by human trafficking. Could she be their missing link in the case? Is there anyone they can trust? Haley must rely on God now more than ever if they intend to make it out alive. Will they find a way out of the darkness closing in? Because evil is lurking closer…and determined to win this time.
Avery is back in “Out of the Dark” as a twenty year old survivor of human trafficking. But she’s been through terrible pain and her heart is covered with emotional scars. In “Out of the Dark” we see Avery as a strong young woman who doesn’t feel very strong inside. She’s allowed God to use her to begin a ministry for other human trafficking victims, and she’s very proud of the safehouse she built, Redemption House. Her heart desires to save other victims, but she thinks she’s not as brave or confident as her older sister, Haley, is. (Psst, between you and me, I think Avery is one of the bravest characters I’ve met!) She tries to appear confident and whole, but inside she’s still struggling and has broken pieces. Part of her thinks she’s beyond repair, but the other part of her is still reaching out in hope that God can fulfill His promises to her and heal her and pull her out of the darkness she finds herself in. Avery is a fighter. But she’s getting tired and worried she’ll never make it out of the shadow of her past. But God will never give up on our Avery. And I believe in her. What about you?
*There will also be a spotlight of Haley Hampton in the wrap-up post so be sure to return and read that then!
