Book Description

A man with no past, but who holds the future of the world in his hands.
A woman who has sworn to protect him, for reasons she does not understand.
A killer who must destroy them, or lose all he holds dear.
They are running—from each other, from the plague that is killing all around them, from the dark forces beyond their understanding.

Running from shadow to shadow. From dark to dark.
Hoping to find light. Hoping that this darkness is not all there is.
Hoping…because hope is all they have in This Darkness Light

I am never going to be able to hear a cough on a plane the same way again. It doesn’t matter what sort of cough, be it a little throat clearing puff or a chesty, resonant bullhorn – I am going to think the world is coming to an end. All because of Michaelbrent Collings’ This Darkness Light.

This Darkness Light keeps you totally off-kilter from the opening chapter, and hauls you around by your plummeting gut, or your lip-biting anxiety, and you wouldn’t want it any other way. There isn’t a single character who you don’t keep an eye on simply because they are not what you expected, and you know that you aren’t getting the whole story from anyone.

Chapters are begun with emails between the President of the USA, and a guy referred to only as X. There’s a kind-of mercenary, an ICU nurse, and a guy who survived a chest wound a couple of hours ago (but shouldn’t have). There are car chases, creepy bad guys, creepy good guys, all bundled up into one high-explosive, bladder-clenching, oh-crap-please-what-NOW mind grenade of awesomeness and not wanting to turn your light off, ever again.

The ending may not be a favourite to some readers, but for me the total whiplash that came with it had me chewing over the bones of the story for days afterwards, and loving the ending the more I thought about it… Even if I am never going to be able to look at priests or people coughing the same way ever again. Collings’ prose is rich, at times sparse, and delivers a wallop or a bad case of nerves as required. The plot rockets along, the conversations sing, and it’s a terrifying delight to be abducted by. Michaelbrent Collings is firmly on my “automatic buy” authors list… I just have to remember to read him in the day. And not on planes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely hated this. September 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I usually enjoy the books by Mr Collings. Not this one. In fact, I felt mislead. This isn't about a plague at all. Not really. I wish someone had mentioned in their glowing reviews of the book that this is really about religion. I'd like to provide more information, but for those who really want to read this book, I won't give it all away.I will merely say that I absolutely hated it. I can live with aliens, man-made plagues, asteroid-hits, and even zombies. But this religious apocalypse stuff is more than I can stomach, particularly when I am led through half of the book to think this is about something entirely different.. I think I owe it to fellow readers to tell them this much. At least then you know what you are getting into when you buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Darkness Light - A Must Read August 9, 2014
By moof3r
A man wakes. He doesn't know where he is. He doesn't know what his name is. What he does know, is the make and model of the bed he's sleeping in. He reaches towards the end, takes his patient sheet, and see's his name. John Doe. This couldn't be his real name though, that's a name they give to those who are unidentifiable. That's when it hits him, and his world comes crashing down like a tumble of bricks.

John is an experiment, a closely guarded secret that very few know about, and even less are trying to stop. He exits the room, and upon searching finds a nurse by the name of Serafina. She befriends him, not knowing his capabilities, or what he may be carrying. This is when both of their worlds collide and turn into an adrenaline paced terror that could end them, and could end the world.

Michaelbrent Collings is a name that is synonymous in my mind with action, thriller, horror, and adrenaline paced fury in writing. This is the fifth book of his I have had the pleasure of reading, and like I've said before, definitely will not be the last. His writing pulls you in, he keeps his characters fresh, believable, and his writing crisp. He has your eyes glued to the page, and leaves you wanting more. There is a reason you should read this author sooner than later, and it is because his writing is just that good. So do yourself a favor, check him out online, and pick up any of his novels, but especially his latest, This Darkness Light, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Delightful Ride From Michaelbrent Collings! August 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
What can I say? This is an author who has slipped through the cracks until now, that is. If you are like me, you've shied away from self published works, but Collings is living proof of the flaws of the big press, or even the small press publishers. He's good. Real good. And I am absolutely delighted that I came across his work.

This story, like others of his, is a delightful roller coaster ride of action. A story that you can't put down that keeps you intrigued and guessing, and reading. My absolute favorite feeling when reading a good book, "what happens next...?!" He has a wonderful knack for telling a story from different vantage points and wrapping it up flawlessly. And this book is no exception.

Give yourself a treat and take the plunge. You won't be sorry!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Darkness Light August 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Another tremendous offering from Michaelbrent Collings. Like everything else I've read by him, this book grabbed me from the first sentence and didn't let go until the last. The character development was spot on and I either cared deeply about or deeply despised every character in the story. And, as usual, I am stunned once again by Mr. Collings ability to scare the hell out of me. I love the way he builds tension as the story moves along and even makes you sometimes doubt your own judgement of the characters and events in the story. Keeps you guessing right up until the jaw dropping conclusion. If you are in search of an engrossing and entertaining summer read, look no further than THIS DARKNESS LIGHT.
