Delivering another superb novel Leibowitz has done his many fans proud with a truly exceptional read.
"A Powerful and fascinating foray into the future of science and its unforeseen consequences"
As he enters the room looking like death personified,
lifeless and haunting, she knows blackness awaits.
Aaron Kavanagh is not to be trifled with. He’s powerful, commanding, fierce and currently homicidal. The only thing that matters in Kavanagh’s world is Shannon Kelly. She’s the beat of his heart (yes he has one) and the peace to the fury that constantly simmers within him. Without her, his life is empty and barren. Someone took what is his and he’ll stop at nothing to get her back.
Dylan Kellerman is lost. The love of his life has been ripped from him, leaving a tattered tortured shell of a man. On the brink of murderous insanity he must battle to find Shannon, even if she hates him. Dylan has betrayed her and he knows she won’t forgive his indiscretions. None of that matters now. All that matters is finding her. As long as she’s safe Dylan can continue to live a sad wasted existence without her by his side. Shannon brought Dylan back to life, without her in the world he’ll cease to exist, but Shannon is gone. Stolen from her home and loved ones, she must now fight, but it's not a fight she can win on her own.
The eagerly awaited sequel to Blackness Takes Over, Norma Jeanne Karlsson doesn’t miss a beat as her darkly beguiling series gathers momentum in Blackness Awaits. Hurtling forward from a cliff hanger ending in Book 1, all the main characters are back, but the devices of narration have changed with Kellerman and Kavanagh adding their voices to bring a satisfyingly more edgy perspective. With the plot becoming decidedly more intricate, intrigue remains paramount as Shannon faces a deadly new threat and the uniqueness of the relationships in this enticing series shouldn’t be underestimated. Emotions run high as love, loyalty and friendship are tested to the extreme, making for a roller coaster of a ride where the pace rarely slackens. With such powerful personalities at play they might well have become clichéd or even mawkish a second time around, but by delving deeper into their motivations and insecurities Karlsson avoids repetition and keeps it fresh.
There’s no doubt that fans of the series will enjoy Blackness Awaits and the forthcoming Shrouded In Blackness will be eagerly received. Another excellent release by Norma Jeanne Karlsson it is recommended without reservation.
