As might be expected in an extreme horror novel, the two couples would have been better off heeding the warning signs.
Horrible atrocities happening to sexy young couples vacationing in remote retreats has become a staple in the horror industry, both in books and on celluloid. Embracing the Darkness stands out from other books using this premise both in its intensity and the originality of the story line. It turns out there is a reason that Laura has been 'selected' as a member of the foursome that is unique and compelling, and sets the novel apart from other books that utilize this scenario.
Author Jeremy Mac can write, and I mean REALLY write. The four victims spring to life from the opening page, and are real, empathetic characters that I came to know and like. They share a sexually charged rapport that makes them fun and relatable. Even knowing that this is an extreme horror novel, as a reader I was hoping that the inevitable atrocities would happen to others and somehow spare the four viewpoint characters. But nope! This weekend was going to be a very long, grueling two days: longer for some than for others . . .
It does not take long for intimations to arise that evil things are afoot. Glimpses of a voyeuristic figure crouched in the underbrush observing Tiffany and Tony being intimate on a swimming platform. Soon followed by a member of the party going missing. And then the horror hits us with head-on explosive force, the suspense ratcheting up off the Richter Scale.
There are two unexpected plot twists that keep the reader guessing. The first was not entirely unpredictable to devotees of hardcore horror. But the second plot twist is totally original and impossible to foresee. It is this second twist that makes the book truly memorable. Sorry, no spoilers!
Being an extreme horror novel, both the romantic and the horrific scenes in Embracing the Darkness are graphically depicted. Author Jeremy Mac has a talent for sensual description - just enough of it - along with his very strong narrative skills. Hardcore Horror fans will find this novel delectable and just what the doctor ordered for a dark and stormy night. Squeamish, sensitive readers might want to steer toward gentler fare.
Embracing the Darkness was an enjoyable romp as well as being thought-provoking and presenting scenes and ideas that will stick with you long after closing the covers. There are suggestions that there might be a sequel in the works. If so, it will be at the top of my reading list. Highly recommended!

I thought I was going to be able to guess the ending, but instead I was surprised with a nice twisty ending. There could possibly be a Part 2, definitely looking forward to it!
