Editorial Reviews

Review

"I read this book in one sitting and absolutely refused to put it down despite the fact that my iPad was on 1% and I still had a chapter to go. Luckily for me, I made it and I couldn't be more agitated. I am not agitated at how the book ended, I am agitated THAT the book ended. Seriously Kira, one of the biggest cliffhangers ever!" - Natalie McNamara, Amazon Reviewer


"I have only recently discovered Kira and her work, but in a short space of time have read a lot of her books, and was very excited about being able to read an arc of this title, Into the Darkness. I can honestly say I absolutely loved this book, I didn't put it down at all and read it all in one sitting, I don't want to give any spoilers but was hooked from the start really." - Tina P., Amazon Reviewer

Oh boy, where should I start.....

This is an easy read and I was devouring it, however there was just too many issues in this for me. Starting with the pacing, it moves way too fast to even know how much time has gone by between scenes or chapters. The way it was written, one minute the virus breaks out and then the next paragraph one of the main characters escapes in a car and is already worrying that it might have spread to his family. Um, how? It just happened in this one building you were in and you escaped, how the heck could it reach your family already? Especially since it first broke out in Area 51 and you were there to see it.

The actions of characters and the scenes in the story just don't match, causing it to not flow right for me. Like when the outbreak finally reached the outside world and then the next chapter all of a sudden they're all badass and know how to survive in this zombie infested world. The transition just didn't feel right. Nothing in this book felt right.....

What definitely didn't feel right was the silly love triangle or the romance in general. It felt like Phoenix just met Cullen and didn't trust him and then the next paragraph they're having relationship drama.....Like, what?

You just met and now all of a sudden you have crazy feelings for each other. Phoenix was so hot and cold, one minute she's into him and the next she can't trust him and I'm like "But you just met each other two chapters ago! How the heck are you having relationship drama?".....it got to me as you can see....

Seriously, throughout I was trying to figure out how much time went by between chapters or even paragraphs. Transitioning between scenes was like whiplash, it never felt right and it annoyed me.

One star for effort. Poor dialogue skills by the writer. I felt like there was a constant narrative telling me how everyone was feeling. If you have good dialogue skill all the tiresome narration is obsolete. I general story was lacking as well. The end of humanity and the water and electricity are still working? The degenerates can find them from state to state? The how and why specifics are wishy washy. I almost couldn't finish it.

We meet Phoenix Blue as she’s headed out on a date. It was a blind date, there is an early curfew due to an outbreak of epic proportions, but she’s a rebel. Her date wasn’t her usual fanfare, but she didn’t care. The next day she went home and all kinds had broken loose. She meets up with Ike, who was at the facility that was showing the virus, when it broke out and spread like wildfire. They pick up Harlan and Jerrica and Cullen along the way.

There’s so much more than I’m going to go into here. Needless to say that our little group has something special that many want to get their hands on and they will stop at nothing to get their hands on it.

I liked the story well enough. My problem with it is the pacing. It’s pretty choppy for me and sometimes a character that’s with them isn’t mentioned for several chapters. This makes me wonder if they’re still with them or if they’d died or whatever, and suddenly their there again. Otherwise, the story is good and has lots of promise.

This is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Adams. I’ve heard about several of her others being tear-jerkers and I’m not a fan of springing leaks. I am glad to say that this one doesn’t invite tears, however, so if you’re like me, this is a boon for you too!

* An ARC of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review *

This review has been cross-posted on Amazon and GoodReads.

I was excited about reading this book. Yes, it is yet another zombie apocalypse book, but authors have been taking different tangents on how zombies act so there is a variety of different kinds of stories. What intrigued me the most was that Ms. Adams wanted to give a good backstory for the creation of the zombies, something few authors try.

The story wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. The backstory was definitely a major plus for the book. But I didn't care for the characterization of Phoenix. She was supposed to be some badass chick with a chip the size of Texas on her shoulder. But where her characterization failed was in the details. Why does she have the chip? I found it hard to like Phoenix because the details were lacking and she just seemed to be in a perpetually bad mood for no apparent reason.

Overall, my disappointment stemmed from the unrealistic nature of many of the scenes and interactions. For example, when Ike gets to his family he does some stuff that I just find beyond belief. He was supposed to be extremely concerned about his family and their safety. Yet when he finds them safe and sound, he does nothing to ensure their safety. And I was flabbergasted when he went back to sleep next to his wife after he knows she is infected but without securing his daughter. This was only the first of many scenes where I was left feeling a sense of “That would never happen!”

This book, for me, is sadly a 2.5 star book. I did like the book and I am looking forward to the next book. I am hoping that scenes are more realistic in forthcoming books though.
