The breathtaking follow-up novel to the award-winning Half World The recently reunited realms of the Flesh, Half World and the Spirit are again at risk—something has been left undone. Gee, adopted as an infant, has been kept ignorant of his troubled past. Now at sixteen, he is a loner both despised and feared by his classmates. dark feelings, unbidden, slowly grow inside him. Even as he struggles to control them, his past catches up with him and compels him to journey to Half World. Abandoning his adoptive grandmother and the place he has called home, Gee must face what he used to be in order to determine his fate and the fate of the Three Realms. Aided by a surly cat and a troubled newfound friend, Gee must fight the monstrous and the horrific in Half World. Most difficult of all, he must overcome his own propensity for evil. The nightmarish adventure picks up sixteen years after Melanie’s return in Half World (2009, Puffin). With a new dark hero whose unlikely companions are a heartless cat and a self-destructive Neo Goth girl, Darkest Light is a compelling journey through despair in a desperate search for redemption.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sequel goes deep The sequel to Half World, this book is a little more intense and gets darker and deeper. Again, Goto's writing pulls you in and her descriptions and imagination transport you to another world. If you like YA fiction, you'll love these books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I felt like I was transported in a dark place with no hope, no love and no life. The book was provided by the publisher razOrbill Canada for an honest review with no compensation provided. Gee is all grown up now and he has felt different than anyone. His sister is gone and his grandma who is always there for him is feeble and starts to get sick she says something mysterious about Half World. His parents are there. Together with a new friend he finds along the way, they land in Half World where everything is well dead. This is definitely a different theme from Half World. Gee struggles to be good when so many osbstacles get in his way. Hiromi Goto’s world building is clearly epic. I felt like I was transported in a dark place with no hope, no love and no life. Darkest Light was definitely more creepy. For example anyone read about homicidal cannibal children? The struggles these souls had in life was so horrible and I can understand why they’re still stuck in Half World and can’t move into the Spirit world. I wonder if there’s any interest in a movie? I’d love to see it on the big screen! Rating 4/5 Quotes “Emptiness was good. Emptiness meant there was nothing inside that would break and shatter.”—Gee (75)
