Editorial Reviews

Review

"A tightly executed first fantasy installment that champions the exploratory spirit." -- Kirkus Reviews


"The plot unfolds easily,swiftly, and never lets the readers' attention wane... After reading this one,it will be a real hardship to have to wait to see what happens next." -- Feathered Quill Book Reviews

"... a fantastic tale of a world that seeks autopian existence, well ordered, safe and fair for everyone... also anadventure, a coming-of-age story of three young people as they become theseekers, travelers in search of a hidden treasure - in this case, a treasure ofknowledge and answers... a tale of futuristic probabilities... on a par withHuxley's Brave New World." -- Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite

"The quality of its intelligence, imagination, andprose raises The Children of Darkness to the level of literature." -- Awesome Indies

"...a solid fantasy-dystopian offering, one thatis not merely written by some author looking for a middling entry to the genre,but excellently crafted by an artist looking to make his mark... A timely novelbeautiful in the simplicity of its writing and elegant in its underlyingcomplexity."  -- Eduardo Aduna forReaders' Favorite

"I found the world-building surrounding the people of the Ponds so descriptive that I was transported to their homes and way of life, and when the trio embarked on their journey, I could clearly picture them every step of the way. If you're looking for a classic fantasy quest wrapped in a fascinating, dark archaic world, then this novel will not disappoint you." -- K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

About the Author

What if all you have beentaught as good and right turns out to be the hand of darkness that has beenholding you down?


The Children of Darkness is about a society devoid of technology, theresult of an overreaction to a distant past where progress had overtakenhumanity and led to social collapse. The solution--an enforced return to asimpler time. But it's also a coming of age story, a tale of three friends andtheir loyalty to each other as they struggle to confront a world gone awry.Each searches for the courage to fight the limits imposed by their leaders,along the way discovering their unique talents and purpose in life.

The urge to write first struck at age sixteen when working on a newsletter at a youth encampment in the woods of northern Maine. It may have been the wild night when lightning flashed at sunset followed by the northern lights rippling after dark. Or maybe it was the newsletter's editor, a girl with eyes the color of the ocean. But he was inspired to write about the blurry line between reality and the fantastic.

Using two fingers and lots of white-out, he religiously typed five pages a day throughout college and well into his twenties. Then life intervened. He paused to raise two sons and pursue a career, in the process -- and without prior plan -- becoming a well-known entrepreneur in the software industry, founding several successful companies. When he found time again to daydream, the urge to write returned.

David now lives in Seattle, Cape Cod, Florida, and anywhere else that catches hisfancy. He no longer limits himself to five pages a day and is thankful every keystroke for the invention of the word processor.
