Product description

Review

'I cried all the way through. It really touched me and helped with my own feelings of loss...'Out of the Darkness' is beautifully-written and has a message that everyone should hear.' --Phillipa Taylor

'A host of likeable characters who I cared about and who were slowly transformed through friendship, from pain into joy and healing.' --Robyn East

'Great story, will be a helpful book for those who have lost loved ones, but simply a moving tale for anyone to enjoy.' --Alex Faulkener

About the Author

Having grown up with a mother who consulted her tarot cards on a weekly basis, and who would frequently sense an other-worldly presence, it has always been perfectly natural for me to assume that there is more to this life than meets the eye. I have even experienced a few mysterious encounters myself. But it was only when I suffered the loss of a loved one that I started to question the possibility of life after death, and decided to find out more. And so began a fascinating quest, where I met 'ordinary' people who claimed to have experienced the extraordinary. This is where I found the inspiration for my debut novel, 'Out of the Darkness'. Although it's fiction, much of the phenomena written about in the story have been experienced by me, my friends, or people I spoke to during my research. I have started work on my second novel, but when I'm not writing, you will find me keeping tabs on my teenage children, or walking my dogs in the Hertfordshire countryside.

I have to admit that I haven’t read a novel for a few years until now. Out of The Darkness was recommended by a friend who I love and trust, so I had to give it a go. Just a few pages into the book I started to worry; Jessica had lost her mother. This immediately brought back memories about my own mother who I lost in April this year. Was this going to be difficult for me or would I find comfort in the book? I carried on and soon I found myself enjoying the company of the characters in the book. The friendship of Jessica, Alex and Hannah develops beautifully throughout the story – and what a story it is. Although the characters all have their own lives on the Earth plane they become comfortable with forces that are beyond scientific understanding. It really is a tale of love, loss and life after death. Rather than finding this difficult, I too stepped out of the darkness and enjoyed every page of the book.

The story is set in Brighton, England which is a town that is very dear to me. I live in the French Alps, but I have visited Brighton four times in the past year. I loved the references to Brighton, such as The West Pier, The Marina, The Laines and Montpellier Crescent. For the first time in 14 years I started to feel a little homesick.

Katy Hogan writes in gorgeous style, descriptive but not flowery, intelligent but easy to read. Her use of the 42 chapters is something else, it is almost impossible to finish a chapter and then put the book down.

I became slightly obsessed with this book and even bought the Kindle version as well as the paperback, so that I could get a quick fix on my phone’s Kindle app when I had a spare moment or two. There were definitely a few moments when I had a cold shiver down my spine, but I’d be giving away too much if I told you why.

I saw the book advertised and out of curiosity decided to buy it and read it. I found it so absorbing and could not put it down. It is written with great pathos and the three main characters were portrayed in a very special way. The way they are all linked is done very cleverly. It shows loss in a sad but positive light. Delving into the unknown world was done in a very sensitive manner. Thank you Katy Hogan. I look forward to reading future books.

I saw the reviews for this book and instantly had to read it! This book was beautifully written. I felt immediately involved and attached to the characters and did not feel the need to put it down. I loved the twists and turns in the plot which constantly kept me guessing. For a book that is about Love and Loss; it had me un-expectantly gigglingly at times due to the witty lines from certain characters. This NEEDS to be turned into a Movie!
