Review: Darkness of Man by C.C. Genovese

by Claire Rees

cover darkness of man

Introduction - Who's at the Door?
She was in her closet like a coward. Sweat glued her hair to her forehead and mascara ran from her eyes, robbing her of the beauty she usually possessed.

The Review

Imagine if another world existed, a place where your deepest, darkest desires come to life, where its normal to be a murderer or rapist. Where people get attacked in the streets and nobody cares. What is you were sucked into his world unknowingly? That's exactly what happens to Gabe.

One minute he is leading a boring existence, boring job, girlfriend is losing Interest, and the next he is being pulled into the mirror world and his image has taken his place.

Along with other images and people who have also been dragged through the mirror Gabe fights his way through this new world full of darkness and the worst kind of creatures and people you can imagine, in order to try to get back to the normal world to save his girlfriend Allie from his image Cutter who wants to kill her and frame Gabe for it.

I enjoyed this book a lot. The writing was descriptive and so cleverly done that I actually felt like I was traveling through this dangerous world with the characters.  The nice characters were great and I felt sad when one of them got lost or died and happy if they won. The bad characters were really bad and it was easy to hate them.

I would recommend this book to all who love a good, scary adventure through dangerous and uncertain terrain, with a variety of creatures all wanting a piece of flesh.

  1. Intense opening lines! This one does sound good...thanks for sharing! And thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. The intro is not bad, but the horror and fantasy combo is not for me generally. Hope you like this one.

  3. What a tense opening scene! It sounds like the book continues in the same vein. You've got me curious about this one.

  4. Sounds fascinating, but this book may be too scary for me. I'd have to be in the right mood to read it.
    My Tuesday post features Shem Creek.

  5. That is one tense opening - thanks for sharing and visiting my blog :-)

  6. Very intense opening... maybe a little too scary for me though.

  7. Sounds dark and intense...I'd have to be in the right move to continue reading.

  8. Very tense beginning sounds like a good read for those who like horror!

  9. I don't know about this book -- I don't think its for me.

  10. It's not too scary. It explores the darker side of human nature along with some creatures of the dark. But it is very good
