Many of the books I review were FREE in exchange for an honest review. I do not get paid to review them. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as ADs. They are promoting books but I do NOT get any money or goods for posting Spotlights.

The Darkness by Crystal Connor

A science experiment interacts with the occult with bizarre consequences.

Adam is the child turned young man upon which this story revolves.   Adam’s welfare and abilities challenge both science and witchcraft represented by his conflicted mothers.  

Amoral behavior is characteristic of practically all the participants in this adventure.  Any altruistic actions seems to morph into self serving indulgence.  I found no likeable characters in the book.  Intriguing, mystifying, overblown, satanic and selfish behavior is in abundance but likeable not so much.   The book has an interesting and challenging premise with a satisfyingly intricate plot.

I was not overly thrilled with the cover and I think a more captivating cover would increase interest in the book.   Twilight Zone fans will love this book. 

I recommend it.
