"An old-fashioned story written with a contemporary sensibility... Terrific!" - Charles de Lint (The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction)
"To be read and shared and loved." - Joe Hill
"Crowther's twisted rapture is a fast-paced, character-driven, funny, gruesome apocalypse. Forever Twilight will cast a shadow on your soul." - Stephen Baxter
"[The novel] very intelligently and deftly invokes a host of cinematic spookshows from Invasion of the Body Snatchers onwards." - Asimov's
"As intensely menacing and gruesome as any George Romero film, Darkness, Darkness also recalls the classic novels of American small-town terror and offers mystery as well. A virtuoso 'tour de force'." - Ramsey Campbell
"A riveting read." - The Guardian (on Forever Twilight: Darkness, Darkness)
The book starts out interesting even though for a second, I found it alittle confusing. There's a flash of light thats almost blinding and just about everyone disappears. Three people on a packed flight leaving Denver are gone. Landing the plane was exciting through the first part of the novel. Once that was over, I found the story to drag a little, til we get close to the end of the book. There are some exciting moments and some of the "monsters" show up. Alot of the action at the end was for me, just a prelude to whats to come.
It's a 3 out of 5 hearts. We'll see what the rest of the books in the series will hold in store for us.
