Fasten your seatbelts, hangon for dear life, and prepare yourself for yet another action packed adventurous romp courtesy of the resilient and insightful Cary Osborne who has blessed the lover of Sci-Fi futuristic fare with an emotionally endearing sequel to Deathweave. After author Osborne captivated her readership with a climactic roller coaster ride of fast paced turn of events to finish off the drama, intrigue and mystery of Deathweave, it was hard to imagine a successor tome that could further maintain or improve upon the plot and character centered around her heroine Arden Grenfell and the rest of the mainstay principles on the planet Glory. Once again Osborne delivers in grand fashion without missing a beat. Picture Nancy Drew, all grown up, with a very modern day woman's perspective and attitude, complete with a special forces military training background acquired at a reclusive countryside monastery during her impressionable years; throw in an extra dash of strength, wisdom, courage and resolve while maintaining a touch of her youthful innocence and tender caring heart, then zoom forward a few centuries in time. That's Arden Grenfell. Arden's mission is to preserve the peace on Glory, a world desperately trying to come to grips with its own erupting latent anarchy and civil war on the heels of finally achieving intergalactic peace after years of external planetary warfare. Arden's main squeeze and romantic interest, Captain Raphael (Rafe) Semmes, is a likeable rogue salvager who plays the perfect complimentary role as a mischievous sleuthing midlife Joe, a la Hardy Boys fame. Often remote and inaccessible, both emotionally and due to chosen occupation, Rafe proves the typical modern man, sometimes incapable of commitment but willing to lay down his life at a moment's notice in support of Arden through heartfelt profession of his own terms of endearment to her. In a classical time tested story of good versus evil, and heroes matched against villains, writer Osborne displays, in her patent tantalizing manner, the uncanny knack for weaving into each and every personality she creates, the values, standards, hopes and dreams of several present day generations, themselves easily identifying with this world of the future and its fate inspired Glorians. If you're looking for a fun filled feel good fantasy to curl up with on a rainy day, or, searching for a surefire cure for those nagging blues, then Darkloom is the perfect prescription to fill the bill. Enjoy!
