What would you do? Where would you go? The authorities have told Jacob to stay at home, avoid people, help will come. When help finally arrives, things go terribly wrong; Jacob is separated from his wife, Laura, and their sick daughter. He must fight to survive and fight to reunite with his family.
There are a lot of great things that W.J. Lundy did with The Darkness. He has written what would be considered a post-apocalyptic/zombie book, but these are not zombies, they are something far more sinister and dangerous. What are they, you ask? You’ll have to read it to find out.
Jacob is not your traditional apocalyptic hero. He has no training, no stash of supplies; he, like ninety nine percent of the population is completely unprepared. He is a hero that everyone can relate to. If Jacob can survive, maybe I can too.
The Darkness is a fast paced, exciting book. Going outside of the box makes the story all that more interesting. I can see a possibility of having more adventures with Jacob in the future.
