THE SCIENCE WILL SURPRISE YOU!
Authors have written of the darkness since chisel was first taken to stone, and all have carried a single theme; Darkening Danger. Poe said it best; "Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, and dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before."
With Darkening Danger, Sammy Sutton takes it one step further and gives us a darkness that brings dreams no mortal ever wanted before. The world has undergone a drastic change; the sun is gone, the moon is gone, the stars are gone, and soon all electrical power fails; what do people do when there's nothing to light the way?
Her main character Michael Levine leaves me wondering if he is a light in the darkness or perhaps a part of the darkness. In subsequent books I hope to find the answer. I can't wait!
Chaos has just begun and we are only in the first day of what might prove to be the end of the world as we know it.
In Darkening Danger we find tension created by total darkness, murder, sleep deprivation, dreams that capture you and won't let go, and sexual encounters that leave you asking the question; if one must court darkness as the cost of knowledge; what price are we willing to pay?
