Aiden LeDoux is a typical sixteen-year-old boy when the O’Connell brothers nail his father to a tree. He doesn’t believe things can get any worse...until three months later, when a mysterious light bursts forth from his face and heals everyone in his father’s bar, from minor scrape to terminal illness.
Once word of this miracle event spreads, crazed townspeople attempt to force Aiden to use his newfound gift to heal those they love. But Aiden doesn’t know how he did it. Or why. Or if he can ever make it happen again.
In the heart of a blizzard, in the throes of fanatical entitlement, the townspeople begin to tear the town—and each other—apart, with Aiden and his family trapped in the middle...
Shine Your Light on Me is a gripping tale that illuminates the ugly underbelly of humanity. From its tense opening to its explosive finale, the monsters herein are all too real, too familiar, and Lee Thompson's relentless prose will leave you breathless
Shine Your Light On Me dumps you directly into the local town bar just as an “incident”occurs that changes young Aiden’s life forever.
As this story progresses, we learn more about the small town where Aiden lives, why everyone now wants a piece of him, and why Lee Thompson is such a good writer.
I can’t say much without spoilers, but I can say that, as usual, Lee brings these characters alive. Small town life seems to fit with his writing style perfectly. He seems to know how things are in these communities and the stresses that life there can cause.
Will Aiden be able to “see” his way out out of town and be allowed to live the life of his choosing? Or will the town and its residents drag him on down? You will have to read this novella to find out!
Recommended for fans of dark fiction and when I say that I mean DARK, even though that light is shining.

*I received a free e-copy of this novella from Shock Totem in exchange for an honest review. This is it!** I am proud to call Lee an online friend of mine, but that did not influence my review one way or another, because that’s how we roll.**
