Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards continues her penchant for "fantastic storytelling" (RT Book Reviews) with this next heart-pumping romantic suspense novel, the tale of a brilliant ornithologist trapped on the remote Attu Island in Alaska, fighting for her life - and that of a handsome stranger - before they're swallowed up in darkness forever.

    "Entertaining"

    The story was pretty good - though I don't know if people that cold and that much on guard could have sex. My main problem was with the narrator mispronouncing ornithologist.

    Story
    "Do authors get to pick the narrator?"
    Would you listen to Darkness again? Why?

    If I had read this book, the voice in my head would not have made the female character sound like such a breathless timid drama queen. The story was good. I liked the fact it was set in Attu where my grandfather was stationed in WWII. The characters were good if one only listened to the words and not the voice inflection of the narrator.

    "Okay story, narrator issues"

    Could not get past narrators glaringly obvious mispronunciation of words! One Example, OrNIthologist, not OrINthologist!

    Story
    "Not the best from this author."
    What could Karen Robards have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Too much "personal interaction" and not enough story.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a Robards fan and buy all her books. This one is not a keeper for me.

    "Page turning suspense"

    Captures you with the first page and doesn't let go. Fast paced suspense. Strong, tough characters. Passionate love story. Government espionage. Well written and entertaining.

    Story
    "More sex than substance"

    Was disappointed that this book was more about the sex between two strangers who met less than 24 hrs prior than about the mystery of who brought down a plane. It was unrealistic to some degree that someone who fell out of the sky with a bullet in them was so healthy for all their adventures. And all with just a Tylenol. It wasn't up to Karen Robards standards. Not enough mystery.

    The narrator was good considering how many sex chapters she had to read.

    "Thought it would never end!"

    I was bored and had to make myself finish it. Characters were boring, plot was boring. The narrator was the only good thing.

    Story
    "Atmospheric"

    You really do feel the cold and lethargy in this book as the narration is very slow and tired-sounding. The initial plane crash is quite harrowing and if you are phobic, might be a bit too disturbing.

    Overall an OK listen as a doctor and a mysterious man who may or may not be the enemy, evade others on a remote island.
