Outside the bunker a strange darkness has fallen over the land. Terrorists are to blame, but can anything be done while locked in a bunker, deep below the surface? Trapped with few options Dan Tracy begins to do what he can from their safe location.
I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down, I can't wait to see what happens next in book two! 5 Stars, I really enjoyed it!
A family wins a trip to a secret bunker in the middle of nowhere in Scotland. While there on a seemingly routine trip, things begin to happen and the bunker is locked down. Dan Tracy is locked in when the bunker is put in lock down and is eventually found. But everything inside the bunker has changed and for some reason, he has full access to the entire secret building that he didn't even know existed.
The narration for Darkness Falls was done by Dan McGowan who does a really good job. The novel was choppy and written into really small sections and McGowan's style and poise were the only things that kept me coming back for more.
I almost stopped reading/listening in the first 20 minutes or so. The book. is. so. choppy. Especially on audiobook. I'm 100% okay with short chapters especially when I'm trying to read a book. But this had normal length chapters with really choppy random changes of direction.
The book jumps around a lot, which leads to some really hard reading/listening on my part. And the book just sort of ends. If you've been a follower of my blog for any time you know that I don't mind trilogies but I hate when a book just ends. Especially when I feel like the arc of the story hasn't even begun to be completed. Darkness Falls is another in the "trilogy mindset" that falls a little short to me.
Now, I did actually like the premise of the story, and I definitely want to continue it. I just feel like there are some things that need to be closed up for me to feel like I've read a full book instead of a piece of episodic fiction.
Overall, Darkness falls is able to overcome some of its shortfalls and is a pretty enjoyable read. Just be warned that listening to this on audiobook is rough but not because of the narrator, just the way it was written.
Yes I am aware that it is past of a series but I am a firm believer that a novel has to be able to stand alone and in someway reach a resolution to part of the story or its only part of a book.
All that could be forgiven as I moved through it to about the 70% mark... then the book became preachy enviro-babble. Destroying much of the world and killing countless people to rebuild the environment and it was the "terrorists" who wanted access to fossil fuels. What a load of complete garbage.
