Out of the Dark Book Cover Out of the Dark
Claire C. Riley

We are temporary. Finite.
The choices we’ve made, the people we have loved. Who we used to be no longer matters.
Because now it is all about the ending. And the ending always comes too soon.
There’s fear in the dark. And behind every drop of light, the shadows creep and the darkness comes in the form of clawing, red-eyed monsters. They hunt us—stalk us…they are desperate to destroy us.
But I have a reason to fight the darkness and everything in it. A small glimpse of light that lives within my golden-haired daughter, Lilly. She is my strength. She is my everything.
Every life is an untold story, each scene unfolding until the final act. But our ending has yet to be written, and I will continue to protect us, until I can not.

I think I may have actually squealed when this book showed up on my kindle. I honestly had no idea what it was about, but it didn’t matter, it was from Claire. She is one of the best horror writers out there right now. This book, however, is also a love story.

A love so deep, so unconditional, so unselfish, that it made my heart hurt. It is the story of a mother’s love for her child. Her sole reason for living is because of her daughter. Their world is completely horrifying, and there really is no reason for her to continue on other than to protect her. She is her reason for even breathing. The sacrifices that she makes for her are amazing.

Make no mistake; this is also a very scary book, actually one of the most intense books I’ve read in a long time. I was really terrified in some moments and had a tough time letting go of the story when I had to put it down. This book will suck you in from the first page and never let up until the last word. It is an intense ride, any time I thought I could breathe for one moment I was sadly mistaken. I actually felt like I was having chest pains at some points.

“Waiting, always waiting for them to fins us, to catch us, to kill us. Waiting. It’s a cruel torture.”

Claire’s writing is unparalleled. Only she can deliver the most beautiful love story and one of the most terrifying at exactly the same time. I really can’t do this book any justice. It needs to be read immediately. In a brightly lit room.

5 stars and a bottle of whatever you have lying around ( you’ll need it!)! Enjoy!
