Charles W. Jones's Darkness is Coming is a suspense mystery that captures the reader's attention immediately. Jess has just purchased a house on Scarlet Lane. But the excitement of having a new residence quickly melts into fear. She and her family are disturbed by strange noises and even ghosts! Worst of all, Jess learns that a young girl died in the house and it was not from natural causes. Then Mason enters, just released from prison. It turns out that the house Jess has purchased is Mason's childhood home. However, he is unaware of all the unusual happenings and fears the house contains. Mason has been sent there specifically by his employer to accomplish a task. When Jess and Mason team up with a surprising figure, a plan is developed and set in motion to rid the house of the beast tormenting its residents.
From the first paragraph of Darkness is Coming, Charles W. Jones had my attention. I have not bitten my nails in years, but this complex and well written plot was a nail biter throughout. The characters, Jess and Mason, are individually strong alone and amazing together. Just when I thought I was settling into a steady pace with the story's events, Mr. Jones would throw in a curve ball and I would be spinning again with excitement and fear. It was easy to perceive what each character was feeling and experiencing. But, the absolute best part of the book was the plan to rid the house and town of the beast the house held. You will not want to miss the ending to this plot! If you are a mystery connoisseur, then this is your book!

Darkness is coming is one of those books that you have really pay attention to.
And know a bit of American history.
And then pay attention some more.
t is set in multiple time periods, but one basic geographical location (THANK GOD). This was rather annoying in the first few chapters because you had NO IDEA why you were jumping around in time and who the heck these characters were..... but eventually I saw the link between the characters and it made sense. Somewhat.
Anyhoo, once you get into it, it's a fairly straightforward tale of witches, demons, love, and murder. There are some interesting characters, though some seemed a bit more fleshed out than others. I did initially have trouble keeping the names of characters straight and their personalities within the same time frame. But, I'm also usually reading about 3 books plus an audiobook at one time, so sue me.
I think this is a pretty good YA read and if you are an American history teacher who is teaching about the Salem witch trials I think you could easily assign this as a reading and for group discussions. Not to say that it is dry and boring, but rather that it does a good job of relating the history to characters that could be real people. There is a bit of human experience learning in there as well, particularly as you jump between time periods but still find the same types of people.
Overall, it was a good read, if a bit slow to start.
