Publisher's Summary

A Cold War bunker now used as a day-trip destination for tourists...

A twin who died in mysterious circumstances...

A family lured to a special place at a particular time...

And then the darkness falls.

Separated from his family as the entire planet becomes surrounded by a deathly blackness, Dan Tracy must figure out what's going on below ground.

The bunker is at the center of a conspiracy to destroy the Earth - but there's something special about Dan and his twin that could stop the terrorists dead in their tracks.

It's a race against time, as the process of destruction has already begun. Who will be left to hear Earth's final screams?

The Secret Bunker: Darkness Falls is the first in a trilogy of books by author Paul Teague.

    Story
    "I just couldn't get into this book."

    I tried, I really did. Especially when I am provided a book free for review I feel as though I owe it to the author to listen to it in entirety.

    But, I just couldn't finish. The story jumps around and I found my mind wandering while I was listening (instead of being lost in the book I was thinking of stuff like - darn I better add dish detergent to my shopping list). That's not what I am looking for in a book. I want to forget about my grocery list!

    So I personally do not recommend. Maybe it was me. This is the first book I have ever listened to by this author. Even some of the most incredible authors put out a dud once in awhile. Maybe with this author I started out with one. So - while I wont recommend this book I will also not write the author off yet.

    The story has a lot of potential, but just very hard to get into.

    "Solid book"

    The Secret Bunker is an interesting book that was very good and enjoyable when I had time to really sit and listen. This is not a book about what could happen where you just sit and listen while doing something else. The book is sort of choppy and bounces around, but I actually did enjoy the story and narration. This is a great start to a series and I look forward to the next one.

    Story
    "When darkness falls there will be questions"

    When the darkness falls many questions will be answered. But more will be asked.

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    A family wins a trip to a secret bunker in the middle of nowhere in Scotland. While there on a seemingly routine trip, things begin to happen and the bunker is locked down. Dan Tracy is locked in when the bunker is put in lock down and is eventually found. But everything inside the bunker has changed and for some reason, he has full access to the entire secret building that he didn't even know existed.

    The narration for Darkness Falls was done by Dan McGowan who does a really good job. The novel was choppy and written into really small sections and McGowan's style and poise were the only things that kept me coming back for more.

    I almost stopped reading/listening in the first 20 minutes or so. The book. is. so. choppy. Especially on audiobook. I'm 100% okay with short chapters especially when I'm trying to read a book. But this had normal length chapters with really choppy random changes of direction.

    The book jumps around a lot, which leads to some really hard reading/listening on my part. And the book just sort of ends. If you've been a follower of my blog for any time you know that I don't mind trilogies but I hate when a book just ends. Especially when I feel like the arc of the story hasn't even begun to be completed. Darkness Falls is another in the "trilogy mindset" that falls a little short to me.

    Now, I did actually like the premise of the story, and I definitely want to continue it. I just feel like there are some things that need to be closed up for me to feel like I've read a full book instead of a piece of episodic fiction.

    Overall, Darkness falls is able to overcome some of its shortfalls and is a pretty enjoyable read. Just be warned that listening to this on audiobook is rough but not because of the narrator, just the way it was written.

    "Different but not bad."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, I always like a story that strays from the norm


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I'd never change an authors vision of where a book should lead.


    Have you listened to any of Dan McGowan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I did like this performance.


    Do you think Darkness Falls needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, just to hear what happens next to the world

    Story
    "the insane ramblings of a mad man? "

    I received this audiobook for free and my views are my own

    I spent the whole book trying to figure out who everyone was and what their story was and what was happening. this wasn't muxh of a story for me.

    the story constantly repeated itself. the sub titles were slightly annoying but almost necessary because of the constant character and different povs.

    the narrator in the beginning sounded like every sentence had a question mark at the end. he did gradually become slightly better but he ultimately ended up sounding like a used car salesman or a infomercial co-host.

    the story was slow.... S.......................L..................O.......................W

    it was too confusing and not enough action and the characters were way to calm for the end of the world.
    I will not be continuing with this series as I don't personally care if they all die or live .

    Story
    "Scattered, disjointed and poorly narrated"
    What disappointed you about Darkness Falls?

    Honestly I couldn't even finish this book (which is quite rare). The story constantly jumps around: The protagonist is 14...no he's not he's 16....here's what happened when he was a kid...now he is a kid...but he's 16...he's in a bunker...are they now talking about someone different?

    The story was just very hard to follow and seemed disjointed and incoherent. At several points I lost track of what was going on and finally gave up. I don;t understand the positive reviews, but to each their own I suppose.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Clarification and better organization.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It sounded like the narrator was reading a book to a child as others mentioned.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I didn't even want to continue.

    The conspiracy side of the story


    Any additional comments?

    To be honest it did take me a little bit to get into the book but after a little while I started to enjoy it more. The story is told by jumping backwards and forwards rather than being linear. I am looking forward to book 2.
