I enjoyed Into the Darkness. The adventure was fun and the pages turned quickly. After the long quest into the jungle, the final chapters began placing more emphasis on dealing with weighty spiritual issues (Why do bad things happen?) while Into the Darkness’s last chapter and epilogue provided the story closure and HEA I desired. I recommend Into the Darkness to readers who enjoy Clean or inspirational romance action/adventure novels, either the proximity/danger or 2nd Chances tropes and HEAs. Into the Darkness is suitable for young readers. It can be read as a standalone title.
Kate Collier/FMC, 38 yrs, is a prim and proper yet tenacious and courageous single woman. She is a church secretary in a small town near Dallas. Kate enters the jungles of Brazil alone on a search to locate her missing twin brother, Zach. As a research biochemist, anthropology and linguistics expert, Zach is well travelled in the Amazon area. He was reported missing 6 weeks earlier while on a quest to discover a hidden, and possibly dangerous tribe rumored to have knowledge of plants with pharmaceutical benefits.
A.C. Slader/MMC is a resigned American ex-patriot with a PhD in archeology working and living the past 5 years deep inside the Amazon jungle. Tall and strongly built with a hard, imperfect face, Slader came well recommended to Kate as the most qualified person to hire and assist her in her dangerous search for her brother. Will Slader be able to help Kate find her brother alive? Or did he die weeks ago in the Brazilian jungle as many believe? Will the journey and unprecedented situations open up new possibilities for either Kate or Slader?
Reader Cautions - IMO, suitable for readers, 14 yrs. and older.
Violence - minimal. Similar or less than old Westerns.
Sexual situations - none. Mild kissing toward the end.
This is a fun, fast read. Great description of birds, beautiful creatures we don't see in the States.
In a well written adventure, there should be enough clues so that when the conflict is resolved you can say, that it all fit together and made sense. Not so here. The question of the story is who would want to kill Kate's brother Zach, and why? However, as the story nears its end, we zoom through the final explanation as if the author got tired of writing and just wanted to get it over with. We are surprised at the identity of the culprit, and had no suspicion of his motivation. Poorly done.
