Read from March 11 to 12, 2016 It's been almost 5 years since cracked open a book in this series so have to admit that getting back into the rhythm with the characters and their proper assigned roles was a bit overwhelming until about 20% in and then it clicked. We all feel a need to identify who is the good guy and who is the bad when reading books, however that line is blurred in Death's Valley: Book Four of the Darkness Series over and over. The truth is that these characters intersecting storylines allow them more leeway than what we normally expect and there is actually only a small margin of error that keeps the good guys from becoming the bad guy. There were moments of intense action amongst moments of suspense and reconnecting with familiar characters as well as a couple that were not so familiar made this a very enjoyable read. What I wished more of were scenes with my favorite talking cat, Morton did however have some cameo appearances that were pivotal parts to the story so at least he did show up in the narrative. Once again the sci-fi aspects were interesting, the pace was steady, the main characters still had the ability to keep me wanting more with each new reveal and even the necessary violence was seamlessly integrated to make a point when needed. Book 4 also dealt with some issues that had been left hanging for me for the past 5 years, also had a few surprises that I was not totally prepared for. Thank you to author Leonard D Hilley II for allowing me up to get caught up prior to reading book 5, it was very nice to catch up with the series and looking forward to the next adventure very much.
