Product Description

Review

"A fascinating blend between Matheson's "I Am Legend" and Collins's "The Hunger Games", "Dark Inside" will engross readers from the first written words, leaving them captivated by strong, compelling characters as well as the savage, destructive world they have to survive. Told from split narrations, a sense of unity is established that furthers the plot considerably and brings urgency and life to the book. Well-written and brilliant, "Dark Inside" will not disappoint."--"VOYA"

Dark times lie ahead for these few survivours of one of the world's most devastating turn of events probably ever witnessed. After a series of earthquakes, bomb explosions and destruction North America (the setting for the several story strands though it is global) has been left in limbo with no communication means and the few survivours at a loss as what happens now. Then things get really scary. People start to change. Seemingly normal people that survived the initial events are becoming dark and attacking and murdering people in the most terrible ways. It's almost like the darkest corners of their human existence that would normally be hidden away is unleashed and allowed to take hold. The best way I described it to others is to imagine that you are in a situation where a little voice says to do something awful and then your logical brain says no and makes sense; well that logical part is gone completely and the little voice is a shouting one with time to play.

This book was disturbing. I cannot stress how fear-provoking and chilling elements of this book was and I was somewhat comforted to find out that some of my fellow blogger buddies were finding the same thing while reading it! It's so realistic and almost believable in some elements that you can imagine it happening and the writing is so detailed and gripping that you are sucked into this horror story no matter how much you want to run away. Like our central characters, you have no escape and find yourself on tender hooks as each character chapter ends and clinging on until it picks up again. Honestly I kept wondering if this was really a YA books because I was scared reading this and could read it when it got too dark out of fear.

A totally thrilling page-turner, Dark Inside is an intense, exciting slice of apocalyptic awesomeness from debut author Jeyn Roberts. Undoubtedly one of the best books I've read this year, Dark Inside is a white-knuckle roller-coaster of a ride that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. A survival story with chaos, anarchy murder and mayhem at its core, Dark Inside is not for the faint of heart, but since horror is my first love, I couldn't get enough of this book!

Dark Inside opens as a series of earthquakes occur across the world, rocking the earth to its core and unleashing an ancient evil inside the minds of humans everywhere. Those who can resist the dark inside must now fight to survive in a world gone mad where danger lurks around every corner in the form of the `Baggers' who exist only to hunt the survivors down and tear them from limb to limb. We see this scary new world through the eyes of four teens, Mason, Aries, Clementine and Michael all of who witness terrible atrocities, such as Clementine who sees a town hall meeting turn into a bloody massacre and Michael who witnesses and act of extreme road rage and is lucky to escape with his life. Mason escapes the bombing of his school only because he is visiting his dying mother in hospital, while Aries, caught in the earthquake, is helped to safety by a mysterious stranger only to find that the world has changed forever, and now she will never be safe again. Throughout time civilizations have fallen and now it's our turn as mankind turns evil and begins to destroy the world as we know it.

What makes this book so entirely gripping and so, so scary is that it is very believable.

Dark Inside was a fantastic yet disturbing read. Although I shouldn't judge books by their cover, it looked a bit boy orientated which I found a little peturbing after finding Gone disappointing. The story was interesting and easy to follow. Right from the beginning, I was thrown into a world that had been completely shaken up by an earthquake and the consequent turning of a group of humans into zombies. This is my first zombie novel and it surprised me how much I liked it. The zombies weren't described as being overly gruesome but were infact quite hard to distinguish from humans, which made them even more frightening and dangerous. There seemed to always be some tension between the main characters and whoever they met, for this reason, which really built up the suspense. The story is told in four points of view, by Mason, Michael, Clementine and Aries, all of whom I found to be very interesting and well developed. It was interesting to see how their different situations in different places affected them. The 'Nothing' point of view was effective, but I did think it could've been developed some more. I found the whole situation to be really captivating and the writing was good. The descriptions really did make me feel unnerved at points, the atmosphere was terrifying and on-edge. There was action throughout but it wasn't too much, the book did feel well balanced. I wasn't wholly satisfied with the ending and though it was nice to see the protagonists unite, I think it could've been even more exciting and expanded upon. This was much better than expected and I'd love to see more from Roberts.
