Thought provoking & wise: Fears Of Darkness is a warmly romantic adventure story. The depiction of building a life in nature is amazingly detailed. There is tremendous wisdom in the way the breakdown and fledgling rebuild of society is handled – in the exploration of human will and spirit. This is a story you settle back and lose yourself in. You walk with this small group of survivors and get to feel, smell, touch and taste everything they experience. There are several little romances and some shocking acts of violence pulling you one way and another. The entire story, and particularly the resolution, poses some interesting questions about us – our society.
