Publisher's Summary

While suffering unbearable agony at the hands of the New World Order, Rebecca's mind slips in and out of the past. During the torture inflicted upon her, she recollects why it is happening to her and what is at stake for the USA. The new fascist government has enslaved everyone who is not wealthy, sentencing them to a life of squalor, sweatshops, and war.

She remembers the prophecy taught to her by her parents that her daughter Jewell has the power within her to use the magic of the between times to gather together the power of the people and overturn the New World Order. It is for this she was born.

Rebecca is finally able to call upon the power during the between times and thus find the strength to face the ordeal that is to come.

    "A Prophecy and Magic.."
    Any additional comments?


    The story line is about a girl growing up in difficult times.

    I don't want to write too much because the book is a quick read that includes:
    Love, Hate, and More..

    The Possibilities of a "Future Culture" are very thought provoking and an Overall,
    Interesting Read.


    Don Colasurd Jr did well with narration.

    Story
    "A sobering view of the world.. perhaps"
    Would you try another book from Marta Moran Bishop and/or Don Colasurd Jr.?

    I would as it is a book that makes one think of the past ( places like Bosnia, Serbia) and currently the middle east in other war torn areas. Its a book to make you think


    Would you recommend Darkness Descends to your friends? Why or why not?

    It depends on the person. Its not a book that leaves you feeling happy or uplifted. It is sobering , dark and sad. I would think of it like the series The Walking Dead. Its unhappy place with strong characters trying to survive ; its a tale of survival. Its very much a character driven book which makes it work. Its emotionally draining


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It was a bit uneven. IMO it would have been better served with a female narrator as the main character was female. However he did do a fine job of conveying the anguish and struggles the main character had to endure


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    This is a story this would be well suited for a very strong female lead. If casted correctly it would be very good


    Any additional comments?

    I was given this book to review and I have tried to express my opinions honestly

    Story
    "Darkness Descends and boredom begins."
    Would you try another book from Marta Moran Bishop and/or Don Colasurd Jr.?

    No I would not. The Narrator has a nice rich voice but it was not used well at all. just plodded along nothing to make a real change between characters. The description of the book was really interesting but the content itself was really disappointing.


    What could Marta Moran Bishop have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The author could have not used the tired Social Justice Warrior slant in her writing to make it the typical drivel of all white males want women to be their slaves, to have their rights taken away, to lose their ability to have educations, and on and on. The story jumped back to historical events and the authors take on how the evil white male power cabal has been planning the seeds of destruction via the characters telling their ideas of how things may of happened in the past. It made for uneven story telling over all.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator just plodded through the story. No drama to the story or emotion to any of the characters or events that were taking place during the story. Just the same pace and tone through out the story. It was a shame as the narrator has a nice rich voice that was a please to hear if it was just used in a fashion suited to reading audiobooks with depth and emotion.


    What character would you cut from Darkness Descends?

    Jaime the friend seemed to be a useless character that was a minor plot point
