Overview

First, the flash. A glare of light, just before dawn, followed by utter darkness. A vast blanketing nothingness that covers the whole Earth.

Then, the disappearances begin. Friends and strangers alike, swallowed by the darkness.… A lucky few are returned, but they are altered, changed.

For the people of Jesman’s Bend, it feels like the end of the world. But this is only the very start.

“To be read and shared and loved.” —Joe Hill

“As intensely menacing and gruesome as any George Romero film.… A virtuoso tour de force.” —Ramsey Campbell

“A riveting read.” —The Guardian

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An old-fashioned story written with a contemporary sensibility... Terrific!" - Charles de Lint (The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction)

"To be read and shared and loved." - Joe Hill

"Crowther's twisted rapture is a fast-paced, character-driven, funny, gruesome apocalypse. Forever Twilight will cast a shadow on your soul." - Stephen Baxter

"[The novel] very intelligently and deftly invokes a host of cinematic spookshows from Invasion of the Body Snatchers onwards." - Asimov's

"As intensely menacing and gruesome as any George Romero film, Darkness, Darkness also recalls the classic novels of American small-town terror and offers mystery as well. A virtuoso 'tour de force'." - Ramsey Campbell

"A riveting read." - The Guardian (on Forever Twilight: Darkness, Darkness)

"Peter Crowther is a hidden gem... It’s science fiction meets horror with a slightly old-fashioned Rod Serling feel." - David Marshall, San Francisco Book Review

I just finished book 1, and I must say I enjoyed it. Sometimes the writing is a bit difficult to follow and some scenes dragged. I liked that it's an original story line. I will buy the next book to see what happens.

Read the description. Stop taking this book seriously. Enjoy the break from pretending to get paid to write your opinionated review. All is well.

Can I have my money back? Forced myself to read 50 pages and still have no idea what is happening (not that the book helped at all). Not good and there are more of these out there? Wow.

If you're looking for zombie horror, this is not the book for you. If you're looking for alien scifi, then you wilk probably enjoy it. Well written book, just not what I was loiking for so I didn't enjoy it.
