My Review:   My great aunt gave me this series after she read it and so I've decided to go back and read some books that I seem to have missed.  
Last Light is the first book in the Restoration Series by Terri Blackstock.
Let me just say...WOW! Talk about a read that will make one think!  This is an excellent, could this really happen read!?!
It is one of those heart thumbing, stayed.up.too.late because I just need to know what is going to happen next!  
This read begins with ALL electricity and modern conveniences coming to a dead stop!  People have to find a way to get home without cars, find a way to cook without electric or running water, no grocery stores are open because store can't function without electricity.  
Also, the "evil" comes out in people.  Good people try to maintain some sense of decorum. 
This is an excellent read!  But be warned...Don't begin this book if you need to get up early the next day!
