The Secret Bunker set a quick pace towards a culmination of events with a meeting of all the main characters and left me gripped along the way. It's not often I pre order the next book but I did in this case, there's no way I'm missing what happens next.
I'm fascinated by the fact that Paul manages to provide an authentic teenage voice for his prime character all the way through. Looking forward to seeing what comes in the second of the trilogy which I've already pre-ordered, need I say more?
Really enjoyed this adventure seen through the eyes of the teenage lead character - his voice was so true and compelling. I'm looking forward to reading the others and would rather like to go and visit the real bunker!
Thoroughly enjoyed this as it keeps you intrigued all the way through. Must get on to part 2 now.
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!
... the action is intense and lots of twists and turns abound until the last page is turned. At the conclusion, the reader is left wondering about many events that are still in progress. Wow...... The characters are well defined, plot is fantastic and the ending lea--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What I liked:
The writing style gave each character a slightly different voice, so figuring out who was "talking" at the beginning of each scene became easier as the pages passed.
What I didn't like:
There were only a few narrating characters who had a name. There was very little dialogue in the portions I read, so the story was mostly "told" from inside the memories and musings of the character du jour. I never felt like I could relate or struggle with the characters, mainly because I had such a little sense of who they were (Dan and Kate seemed to be the only narrators with names).
The asynchronous timeline also inhibited my ability to feel like I was a part of the story. Each scene moved to another POV and moment in time, making it difficult to keep track of who and when I was within the greater story structure.
If you like solving mysteries based on vague clues, you might enjoy Darkness Falls. I for one did not enjoy it, and my frustration overrode my desire to learn the secrets yet to be discovered.
I gave Darkness Falls a generous two stars. I wish Mr. Teague the best of luck in the future.
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.

I do like Science Fiction and Satire, with Tom Sharpe and Monty Pythons sense of Humour. Michael Crichton, Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Douglas Adams and any Star Trek like films etc being the types of genre that interest me.
This book started a little slow and odd to me, but after 4-5 Chapters I was in and wanting more, not knowing who were the "good guys and the bad guys" really intrigued me and I immediately read all the trilogy, which took me only 2 days on Holiday.
I would recommend this book to anyone, and I could imagine this being made into a film, and a very good one at that!
The only downside to me, was the ending came very quickly, and wanting more.
The darkness sounds claustrophobic and made me take deep breaths, very atmospheric. And so starts a damned good story... On to the next book
I hate giving to much away ....
Basically this is not a normal family - it is quite an extraordinary one in a creepy cold war bunker. They won the equivilent of a Wonka Gold token holiday to a disused Cold War bunker in Scotland now used as a tourist attraction. The place is as bizarre as the Chocolate factory. But alas all are predestined to be there in that place at that time. But of course all is not as it seems and as the story unfolds the terrible truth is revealed all through the eyes of a wonderful 16 year old who has a disarming charm. Some of the characters have all the charm of rusty gas pipe but that is intentional. Download and surprise yourself.
This first part begins to weave a group of losely linked tales together. Cleverly only part telling each tale leaving you guessing what fills the gaps and eager to read the next book to find out.
I only read free books due to very tight finances and am for the 1st time ever, actually going buy for cash the next in the trilogy.
It was good to read a British story, despite some of the spelling and words being American (z rather than s and elevator instead of lift, for example).
However, it was enjoyable and original.
But again I do think it was well written and I did like the characters and Dan's voice was well written
I was very pleasantly surprised however, The Secret Bunker set a quick pace towards a culmination of events with a meeting of all the main characters and left me gripped along the way. It's not often I pre order the next book but I did in this case, there's no way I'm missing what happens next.
As soon as I got home I just had to buy it and I am so glad I did. I got so caught up in the story I got up at 7 the next morning to finish it.
There are loads of twists and turns, this makes for great reading, couldn't put it down, great book. Can't wait for the next one.
