Book Review: Predators of Darkness: Aftermath by Leonard D. Hilley II

Description From Amazon:

Fear What Lurks In The Shadows

The desolate streets of downtown Pittsburgh in 2073 are a reminder of the missile attack that forever changed the lives of the surviving scientists and students hidden in the fallout shelter of Helmsby's Genetic Research Center. Believing themselves to be the only survivors, they station themselves inside the center until food supplies near depletion. Thinking the fallout has lessened, they emerge three years later to discover strange creatures patrolling the streets in search of human flesh and blood. The creatures possess the ability to shift their genomes and alter their appearances by realigning their genetic sequences. Daniel Hutchinson, their leader, teams with Lucas Ridale and together they set out to scavenge the area for food and supplies with the hope to find other survivors. But Daniel's most recent journey uncovers mysteries more frightening than the shifters. He discovers the tip of Pittsburgh has been fenced off from the rest of the area. Low-flying helicopters observe the streets, making him ponder the question: Were the shifters released as simply part of a military experiment with humans being their prey?


Overall Feedback: From the start I was enthralled by this book. This is a definitive twist on what at first seems like a recycled plot. I promise you that you will not be disappointed about picking up this gem. Read on.

Point of View: Although we are introduced to many characters the main event lies with Daniel. A strong, caring individual who seems to really want to escape the current events.

Voice: This book is full of darkness, thrills and eroticsm. If any of these are not your cup of tea then this author will not ever fit your reading need. He has some darkness to him and it comes through his writing.

Character Development: Although I agree and some of the things that happen are corny, I also believe that corny things really do happen in real life. It is my opinion that the author was able to capture real life in each character. Bravo!

Plot: The pace is at a breakneck speed but you can easily keep up and you already know that there are more books to the series. Yay!

Dialogue: This is where the author really grasps real life and allows his characters to shine. The dialogue was very real to me and brought me closer to the character's heads that I was invading.

Pacing: When most of your novel happens in a night you must do your very best at making the pace keep up with the timeline. This author did it in superb style.

Setting: No issues in this area.

Continuity: I want more so off to the next in the series...
