Author: C.C. Bolick
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Science Fiction, Young Adult
Rena Mason found fear and learned to control her powers. Now she plans to fight her way back inside the agency. Before she can save Travis, she learns he's disappeared. Travis isn't the only one missing; her dad and brother have been taken by Louis. Travis Payne spent years searching for his dad. Now his first priority is keeping Rena safe. When Travis wakes up on the other side of the galaxy, he knows he can't protect her. The only way for him to return is by helping a traitor he fears - if he can afford the price. Aliens aren't the only danger the agency faces. As Rena prepares to take down everyone who betrayed her, the only thing left to fear is the darkness her mama knows well...
Rena refuses to let the agency control her anymore. She escapes the confines of the agency and is on the run. She expects agents in black cars at every turn but no one is after her. Thinking clearly, she vows to save Travis and comes up with a plan to rescue him. But word gets back to her Louis has taken captive her dad and brother. Throwing caution to the wind, she makes a pact with an enemy, one she’ll soon regret. Can she save them in time? Events are in motion for the destruction of both Earth and Golvern. Can Rena team up with her ghostly mama to stop it or will she let her fear of the darkness overtake her emotions?
Fear Darkness is the third book in The Fear Chronicles and let me tell you, it’s the best in the series. Picking up where Fear Power left off, the action, suspense and drama continue with a fast-paced plot full of characters. We discover a lot of what’s really going on at the agency and also on the planet Golvern. Lies and treachery run rampant told through the POV’s of both Rena and Travis. Emotional narration connected me with several of the characters and I found myself even caring for the antagonists. The plot moves at a fast pace with plenty of action to make my heart leap in my throat. The ending shocked me to the core, and I wonder how this series will end. I can’t say much more as I don’t want to reveal spoilers but take my word for it, you want to read this book.
Yes, it can be read as a standalone as the author fills in the gaps but I recommend reading Fear Justice and Fear Power first.
If you’re a fan of alien science fiction with heart-wrenching characters and action, you have to read Fear Darkness. Highly recommend!
