Publisher's Summary

For Caleb Hicks, survival means hiding in plain sight.

Trained from a young age to be a super-soldier, he has worked hard to keep his abilities hidden. But after a disastrous mistake forces him into military service, hiding his skills becomes increasingly difficult. To maintain his cover, he isolates himself, rarely speaking and discussing his past with no one.

Until now.

After finding love in the wake of catastrophe, he will finally reveal the secrets of his childhood, his training, and the tragic events of his life following the Outbreak. Packed with intense action, thrills, and suspense, The Darkest Place is a harrowing tale of love, loss, and survival against all odds.

And ultimately, of the enduring power of hope.

Surviving the Dead series (in order):

  • No Easy Hope
  • This Shattered Land
  • Warrior Within
  • The Passenger
  • Fire In Winter
  • The Darkest Place

Great series

Liked the background story of Caleb Hicks. Guy Williams does a very good narration, so don't replace him!

Still the best in genre for a series on audiobook.

Would you listen to The Darkest Place again? Why?

I don't listen to books more than once but if there was a series i was forced to isten to, I hope it's one of Cook's StheD books.

Good Zombie Series

I'm an avid zombie fiction reader. Actually almost anything to do with any kind of an apocalypse. This is one of the better ones I've read.

Outstanding post apocalyptic story!!

Absolutely great book. Probably my favorite out of 150+ books I own. Different from the other books of this story but a great parallel.

Weakest yet unfortunately

I found it difficult to connect with the protagonist and that is critical to the success of the novel.
