Firstly I wish to thank Amber Choudhary of Midas Public Relations for inviting me on the Blog Tour for Silence in the Shadows (Black Winter 4) by Darcy Coates
ABOUT THE BOOK
The stark world continues to change. Each passing day twists it further, pushing the surviving humans closer to the brink of extinction. But, for the first time, there is hope.
Clare and Dorran have set their sights on returning home to Winterbourne Hall. It’s a daunting journey, but vital. Humanity needs more refuges—safe areas where food can be grown without attracting the attention of the hollow ones—and the old gothic manor is their best bet.
But their home is no longer a sanctuary. It’s become a trap: carefully crafted for them, lying in wait for their return. By the time they realize just how dangerous Winterbourne has become, it’s already too late.
The fight for survival is far from over.
This is book four and the final part of this awesome series. Clare and Dorran have said their goodbyes to newly made friends and are setting off back towards Winterbourne Hall. They decide that they could do with a few essential supplies to see them through their first few weeks until the crops are restored back to health.
The journey should be easier this time around but they will encounter more than their fair share of dangers on the road home from hollows and survivors alike. Every encounter is new and every monster unique, bigger, smarter and faster than I have read about before. What the author does is bring them to life with awesome details of their looks and the way they move. There hasn’t been two the same yet.
New and old characters are easily remembered because they all come with their unique stories of survival. Even the ones that haven’t been infected have had to evolve in order to survive. Every one of them has developed some sort of skill that has value within a group. Sometimes that is all they have to trade.
The conclusion of the story is heart-pounding stuff. I kept thinking, well that’s the end and it kept going it really is a mint series. A great round-up with no loose ends left undone. Brilliant. This is a series that I will read again and again over the years. It would make a perfect tv series.
