Overview

Villejeune, Florida. A secluded little town at the edge of a vast, eerie swamp. Far from prying eyes. Far from the laws of civilization. Here folks live by their own rules -- dark rites of altars and infants, candles and blood.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The prologue of veteran horror writer Saul's ( Second Child ) new novel is wonderfully scary: A pregnant teenage ``swamp rat'' of the Everglades, spying on a secret meeting of ``the Dark Man'' and ``his children,'' sees a friend offer up her newborn baby, whereupon the masked Dark Man plunges a knife into the infant. Right after that, the teenager's husband promises to deliver his own child ``the night he's born.'' The story proper begins when 16-year-old Kelly Anderson, all her life having suffered nightmares of a menacing old man and now sure she's pregnant by him, tries to kill herself. She recovers and moves from Atlanta with her adoptive parents to her grandfather's house just north of the Everglades. Kelly becomes friends with Michael, her age and also adopted, who admits to similar nightmares and a sense of dread. Michael's adoptive mother, meanwhile, feels a strange kinship to Kelly. The secrets of the Dark Man--his identity and his fountain-of-youth formula--are revealed halfway through the book, and thenceforth the story slides into descriptions of relatively tame to-and-fro-ing, mostly in the swamp, and the revolting revenge of ``the children'' on a group of nasty but well-preserved old men. Saul's ending is cozily sentimental. (June)

    WOW!

    This was not just a GREAT book! I can't even find the words to describe it. All I have to say is you will never guess who is the Dark Man. I could not believe who it turned out to be. You will find it very easy to get into the characters of Kelly and Micheal. They are great and have you feeling for them the whole way through!

    Excellent storytelling...

    Darkness was an eerie, intriguing, story of evil & greed. It has mystery, atmosphere, and a storyline that keeps you up reading. The characters are great, and very likeable. I definitely recommend this John Saul novel.

    Immediate John Saul Fan

    This was the first book I read by John Saul and I must say I am rather impressed and I will be sure to read more of his books. I fell in love with his books right away. I thought that this book was very interesting and it was one of the first books that kept me on the edge of my seat. In fact I read it in one sitting, thats how good it was. I highly recommend reading this book, its very surprising and entertaining.

    One of a Kind

    I have nearly every single John Saul book written. This one is right up at the top of my favorites. A definite original plot, with loads of eery suspense. A must read for John Saul fans.

    AWESOME

    I thought this book was awesome. It was scary and a page turner. I couldn't put it down. I can't say much about it because I don't want to give anything away. I just really liked it and I think I'll read more by John Saul. The back of the book is right, he 'has the instincts of a natural storyteller.'

    Great book to read if you like thillers.

    This was the first book I ever read by John Saul. I read this when I was in 8th grade and I absolutely loved it. Ever since then I have read every book I could and bought every book that I could find by him. He is a great author. The only question I have is, 'Why haven't they been made into movies yet?' Keep up the awesome writing John.
