Since the beginning of mankind, civilizations have fallen: the Romans, the Greeks, the Aztecs… and now us. Huge earthquakes rock the world. Cities are destroyed. But something even more awful is happening: An ancient evil has been unleashed, and it’s turning everyday people into hunters, killers, and crazies.
This is the world Mason, Aries, Clementine, and Michael are living in—or rather, trying to survive. Each is fleeing unspeakable horror, from murderous chaos to brutal natural disasters, and each is traveling the same road in a world gone mad.
Amid the throes of the apocalypse and clinging to love and meaning wherever it can be found, these four teens are on a journey into the heart of darkness—and to find each other and a place of safety.
DARK INSIDE will suck you in from page one and not let you go even after you finish it.
The alternating POVs between 4 very different teens affected by this utterly terrifying post-apocalyptic world from the moment it collapses is as terrifying as it is dark and twisted. Roberts holds nothing back in her melodic writing as she takes you through what it would really be like to one of only a handful of survivors.
There is no candy coatings between these covers, so simple answers, no easy ways out. And no one is safe from the carnage, believe me when I tell you, this book is not for the faint of heart.
The Leviathan like attack on man kind, where their minds are overtaken by a darkness that can not be seen,understood will scare you and put you on your edge of the seat. I literally needed to have this book pried out of my hands at midnight so I could get some sleep last night.
I can’t enough about this book, it was such a fresh new take on something we in YA have been reading a lot of lately: Dystopian. I only have one question – why do I have to wait until September for book 2 RAGE WITHIN!?
Stay tuned, we will be having Jeyn on the blog soon for a great interview!!! And, just click that book cover up top to add it to your TBR pile, you don’t want to miss this novel!
