Darkness Follows by Mike Dellosso - REVIEWED

My Thoughts:

“Now he felt shadowed in darkness, lost in a cave, hearing Molly and Eva calling to him, beckoning him home, but unable to find a way out.” (p. 162)

The decent into darkness, whether spiritual, physical or emotional, usually happens in small degrees. Sometimes there is a tragic or traumatic beginning to this deepening darkness, and sometimes it is the culmination of a lifetime of every day tragedies. Darkness Follows incorporates all of these elements in the lives of the Travis family, and the reader is a spectator in an ever dizzying array of event that builds toward a dramatic and breathtaking ending. Mike Dellosso has really created a true thriller in his latest release, and readers will thoroughly enjoy the ride from beginning to end.

Dellosso incorporates an unlikely ray of hope in one of his characters, and the spiritual element is also included in a surprising and effective way. The Travis family is under an unusually stressful situation when introduced to the readers. However, as the story unfolds, the darkness that pursues them is something that has unknowingly shadowed them for years and has created an entryway for something more sinister than they realize. Add to this an evil character whose unwavering pursuit of his “target”, and the unfeeling heart that guides him on his quest, and the element of suspense is multiplied many times! Darkness Follows is a great ride, folks! Don’t miss it!!
