Children of Darkness: Genesis by Courtney Shockey is the second book in her Nightmare series and what a nightmare it was AND in a good way! It delivered what it promised! Children of Darkness: Genesis is a dark fantasy book that tells a story of the eternal fight between the good and the evil. The writer has taken an interesting approach to this fight and it is amazing how her story telling can pull you in and not let you go … you will go away and still keep thinking what the heck did I just read, did I get it correct, did she really mean … I mean it is the story of the Angel of Darkness and his ‘child’ … What shocked me at first was that the writer had created a world, not unlike ours, but ‘completely’ evil, and like in our world, you have who you love and you have who you hate and it was at times really hard to keep ‘hating’ Ben as he was evil … If you are ready to spend your evening with the Angel of Darkness aka the Boogie Man, spend the evening with Children of Darkness! It is something very different and at times, different is really what you were looking for …

Children of Darkness: Genesis (Nightmare Series Book 2) by Courtney Shockey 5 Stars I stepped out of my comfort zone and took a chance on this book. The synopsis that the author has in place was enough to make me want to give it a try. I have to be honest in saying this storyline is not something I'm comfortable with, I came away not really knowing how I feel about it. I kept trying to take everything that happened and applying it to real life, and in a lot of ways it worked. The struggle between lightness and darkness is a real life struggle. The love a parent feels for a child was very strong in this book. The choices that are made in life will always result in consequences, sometimes not always in your favor. I have to say though that the author's talent with weaving a story is amazing. There was so much in so very few pages and it never seemed cluttered or even rushed. Even though the story wasn't something I would normally read and has me on the fence, I have to give this book 5 stars because it was written that beautifully. This is my first read from this author, and because of her writing style and the smoothness of her words, I will absolutely check out all of her other books.

Children of Darkness:Genesis by Courtney Shockey was a unique and dark book. Not only did find this book to be spookey as heck but it was really creative. This was the first book by this author I have read. I think the author did a good job telling this story. I was pretty freaked out honestly. So obviously to freak me out a little in a book you know the author has mad story telling skills. It was a good solid effort and a great job! 4 star rating!

HOLY CRAP this was a fantastic read! I was on the fence since I am not one to read a purely paranormal read without some romance in it, but boy am I glad that I did. Children of Darkness is the second book in the Nightmare series by Courtney Shockey. I realized about half way through this book that it was the second in a series, so I had to immediately buy book 1 so I can read them both in order this time, which I think will lead to even more love for this book. Children of Darkness is the story of the creation of the son of the Dark Angel, Ben, and how his rise in power lead to the creation of dark children and how his evil becomes bigger than anyone imagined. What is so great about this Shockey is that she really grips you from the beginning of her stories and doesn’t let go until the last page. While this was my first book by this author, it will definitely not be my last. This is a must buy for anyone looking for a book to kick them out of their norm and those who are looking to try a completely different style of book than they are used to.

Children of Darkness: Genesis (Nightmare Series Book 2) by Courtney Shockey is the second book in her Nightmare series. This is a paranormal fantasy short story that will keep you engaged until the end. This is not my first story by this author, she keeps me coming back for more. One of the things that I love about her books is how she creates a paranormal mystery that leaves me sitting on the edge of my seat. Her creative details pulls me in from the very beginning and makes me want more. The characters in this book are both good and evil but they make the story flow into what it is. This is the story of Ben. Ben was created by Darkness and is learning what his powers are. The problem is Darkness has no idea what kind of beast he created. The Underground is the playground for Hell and even at that there are rules. What will happen when Ben discovers his true power? He then takes you on some twists and turns as he shows his powers and what they can do. War is started but will Darkness be able to step in before it is to late? There are other forces at work here to stop the rein of terror that Ben has unleashed. Who is safe and who is not? Will Darkness get to Ben in time? The character Darkness just doesn't realize what he created when creating Ben. He tries to help him grow, learn and control his powers. These characters really are powerful and you will need to read this story to find out just how powerful they really are. They will keep you reading until the end, I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this story as I know you will want to find out what happens when Darkness creates power.
