This is not an average horror story. This is a richly textured story that defies conventions and breaks boundaries. The heroine fights back against unspeakable odds. The antagonist is more than a relentless killing machine. We don't get all the answers. Even at the end of the story there's still some mystery and that mystery allows the story to keep its magic intact. Darkly Wood will mess with your head, you'll find yourself on the edge - hoping everything works out but dreading that it won't, and in the end you'll find you've read a great story. It will take you places, even if they're places you don't want to go, and drop you in the thick of it. This is where horror stories should go; less about the monsters and more about the characters. And when the characters fight the monsters - oh, yeah, that's good stuff right there.
The story evolves around a book, tales about Darkly Woods. There’s an ominous portend to the stories that ring real to a newcomer to the nearby village. As the love story unfolds so do the frightening times, horribly scary, reminiscent of Poe. Without retelling the story, suffice it to say that I enjoyed this well-crafted story.
Darkly Wood starts out giving snippets of information in the form of folklore and legends. The forest is simply accepted as a dark place that has always existed and always will. People die there, stay away…is the simplistic attitude of the locals. Then, enter Daisy May and her mysterious book. At first the reader is left to wonder…is this going to be just another tragedy in a long line of mysterious deaths and disappearances. As Daisy May is drawn into the forest, she enters a world of discovery. Some good, some bad. Before the tale is over she will experience her first love, confusion, helplessness, desperation and pure terror as she faces the monster who resides there. I’m going to stop now because to say more would give away too much of the plot and storyline.
Darkly Wood has it all…love, heartache, terror, compassion, callousness and apathy, pain and sorrow and a healthy dose of mystery and fear. Just when you think you have it all figured out…prepare yourself for a surprise. The plot flows smoothly and the characters are relatable. If you are in the mood for something different, a little sinister and something entertaining…pick up a copy of Darkly Wood.
