Synopsis from Goodreads:
He had a loving family, a beautiful child and a successful career.
Then came the darkness.
When the darkness came, there was nowhere to hide. People ran, but they could not escape. The darkness came and the darkness took them away.
Except for one.
Alex thought that he was all that was left.
He was wrong.
This novel was extremely frightening in its possibilities. You can see how it could happen and you can imagine what it could cause. It was very trippy and disconcerting, but in such a way that you wanted to find out what was going on and what was going to happen.
The beginning of this novel jumps all over the place. It is hard to follow because there are lots of disjointed pieces of information being thrown at you, but it does give a bit of background information and begin to build the story. Morgan’s descriptions were very well put together, providing you with a sense of what each character was seeing and experiencing at all times. Although this novel was very well written I found that I was a bit too confused to really get into the story.
The author gave no clear picture as to who the characters really were. You get to know them in some ways, but ultimately they remain a mystery. That said, the main characters don’t really know themselves either. It is part of the mystique of the novel.
Overall, this novel was full of possibilities but I found myself a little too confused to become fully immersed in the story. I did enjoy it, but it took a bit of effort. Once the story got rolling, I was right there with it.
