The Secret Bunker is a story of a Cold War era government bunker that has become a tourist attraction. One day a midst the normal tours the bunker goes into lock down. As the story continues we learn that some of them were meant to be there, others were not.

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!

3.5 out of 5 stars

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.

While the concept was interesting there was a lot of wandering around and not a lot of substance it felt more like a intro to a book than a book.

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.

This book was difficult at first as it jumped from character to character, and until you knew who you were dealing with it was somewhat confusing. The story, however, was compelling and book one was only the beginning. In order to find out what happened you needed to purchase book two and then book three. The story was compelling enough that I did read book two and I am currently reading book three.

I can't say that I hated this book. I also can't say that I liked it. The book bounced around too much, without going into enough detail in each part. In the end, I don't really remember too much about it. I thought the twin was a boy and it turned out to be a girl, but it wasn't too shocking, as the author was pretty vague about her description. I think the idea of the implants in the neck is pretty cool, though.

I wanted to like this book as the story has lots of potential. Unfortunately, the narration by the protagonist is choppy and not the thinking of a 15 y/o boy. The book jumped around way too much and the author attempted to force suspense into the story.

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.
