A Gripping Read!

** spoiler alert ** Poppet took me on a journey into the mind of a man who truly believes that the things he does are rational and necessary. It is so easy to hate Vengeance, but I found myself liking his alter ego, and that aggravated me :/. As for the female mc, I liked her, sympathized with her, felt her fear, her pain, and wanted to scream at her about who Vengeance was! As for Victor, it didn't take long to hate him again. Towards the end he showed some redeeming qualities, but I don't think that anything could redeem him completely. Sometimes a person can just go to far. The original ending left me stunned beyond belief. As for the alternate ending, I was blown away. It gave me what I was hoping for all along, but I believe it was the most painful thing of all for Shauna to deal with.

This was a scary and uncomfortable read, though very enjoyable. What made Darkroom scary, was the fact that it or something like this can happen, and does happen. We meet people everyday, and as we all know, they are not always who they seem to be. Sometimes, when we are lucky, we find out quickly. Other times,we are not so lucky, and it takes years, or even decades.

I can't wait to read more of Poppets work. Darkroom will be in my mind for a long time to come. Well done!

The female character is this story was the weakest most pathetic girl i have ever read about. She was so stupid she disgusted me. She was a continous victim and kept herself as such. Naive guillable no common sense. Youve been kidnapped amd tortured a few time but you go to bed leaving your sliding glass door open and unlocked? U blindly trust a man who always tells you what to do after being attacked several more times including once in front of you-he doesnt bother to even try and protect you and u decide to marry him? Wheres your self defense training? Ur guns? Ur attack dogs? Ur mace? Something and anything to protect yourself? Spineless. This book was 700 pages of suspense , frustration, disgust and unbelieveableness well written for a price of one dollar. And i want my dollar back lol. And do i even mention the tattoo scene and the fact that shes walking around wearing jewelry her tomentor/rapist made her wear because her new boyfriends likes them and gets pissed if she removes them? How sick in the head was this girl! smh i wanted her to die because then atleast she would have some peace and the constant manipulation would stop. I coulda bought another book with my dollar. Too bad.

    Fifty shaded of what the hell is going on. I decided to read this after reading (and liking) Djinn, but this is a hot mess that feels like a high school sophomore attempting to write something "mature". I gave up after about the 10th reference to "my dirty angel". Ugh.

    Mixed feelings about it.

    I've liked other work by this author, but this one not so much. I think the story was pretty intense. The girl irrated me. Silly, yes! But for me it was a distraction.
