    One thought on “Comes the Dark”

    1. This was a good little book. Not great but an easy read. The story line is interesting and a little different to the typical murder / mystery. Ending came as a bit of a rush but it balanced out some long parts in the middle.Read it if you like a murder mystery that is not too juicy, and you want an easy read.

    2. Wow. You know how you sometimes just can't put a book down? Yeah. Totally how I felt with this book. I read it cover to cover in a day. Only stopped for bathroom runs. No joke. My eyes were sandpaper by the time I finished.This story pulled me in right from the get go. I liked that it is a unique tale. I have not come across anything similar to it before. If you have an interest in mythology, the characters here will intrigue you. I am a huge Criminal Minds fan and this book was very on par with [...]

    3. Strange Twist and TurnsI really enjoyed this book - I started reading it at the beginning of the weekend and could not put it down. it has been a long while since a book has held my attention like this one did. I don't want to reveal any of the plot which could spoil it for the next reader. The only negative was there was a little TOO MUCH narrative on mythology that I skimed over which I found a little boring. But other than that, the storyline was good and the action was great.

    4. Overall I really liked the book,but it took me for ever to read.For me personally it was very slow until the end.I felt like the events were to straight forward, or in other words I did nit feel like it was well orchestrated. I gave it a 2 star rating because of the Mythological references. I happen to be taking Mythology,which I really enjoy, and the fact that I new what the characters were talking about made me feel good.

    5. InterestingI have read many books by this author but I must say I was taken by surprise. although a thriller ,, was very different from his other works. I am still deciding if I liked it or not. had some slow moving areas and some way out there moments. Glad I read it in the day time.

    6. Another great read authored by Michael Prescott. This story has so many twists and turns, it takes the reader's breath away. On a dozen occasions, I knew what was going to happen next, something way different happened instead, and I found myself in the character's place, defeated or elated, whichever. You won't be disappointed in this book!

    7. the description given does NOT match the book i reade book i read is indeed titled comes the dark, michael prescott was the author with a cover that matches the one shown. its a twisted murder mystery with a dark side of mental illnessnot the best not the worst

    8. I loved the book never once in my oppion did this book get baoring all the way to the last part had me nonstop reading. The discription was like a movie being payed out in my mind I am a big fan of Michael Prescott and will keep reading his books.

    9. this was a great book - a real page turner. But the summary up there next to the book cover doesn't go with the story (although that sounds like a good book too)

    10. Very interesting story. Characters will developed.Plot was different and and activities were different. And the ending was a great surprise. I enjoyed the book very much.
