Where Darkness Walks

Where Darkness Walks - Donna Hawk Where Darkness Walks

(4th review for May)


Rating: 5 stars

The author gave me a free copy for an honest review. Firstly I must say the world building was amazing. I could see and feel everything in Mortgatha a world saturated in darkness. A world that once flourished under the rule of King Rade now sunk deeply in evil. Every village or town had its own unique feel, down to the desert landscape or the lush of the dangerous forest. The dark army was frightening. But the mystery behind it all had me turning pages so quickly devouring little traces to piece it all together.
From the start of the story which is based here on earth I just loved Clarie and could sympathize with her so much. She has many admires in different ways, but I appreciated the story between her and bulldog. He was a bully, that smelled and was unattractive but Clarie was gentle with his feelings throughout the story, never one to crush someone regardless of the kind of person they were.

The story is woven beautifully, from the simplicity of a teenager’s life, to the gripping darkness in Mortgatha, and what a world Mortgatha is; I could feel their hunger or the cold of the darkness. This story was so well written and detailed that it sucked me in.

I would highly recommend this to all age groups. Just an amazing read. I can’t wait for book two as the mystery still unfolds and what lies ahead for Clarie and Patrick.
