When Phoenix Blue, the President of the United States, and all of his staff go missing, Ace Cullen is determined to piece together their whereabouts and save the love of his life before it's too late. Ike Glass knows he must stay behind and be a leader amongst the group inside the White House walls. Neveah is counting on him, and he won't let her down. 

Things haven't been easy since they met, but these three friends are going to learn the real meaning of family as they continue to fight for their lives, and rebuild the world around them. This time they're going in with their eyes open, because even with flickers of hope, the darkness remains.


I have to say that Kira Adams never disappoints. While I am not an absolute fan of post-apocalyptic novels, I love Kira's writing, and have followed her since her first book, and absolutely love her characters, and her writing style. The Darkness Remains was well written, a highly anticipated novel, and picked up where Emerging From the Darkness finished. There was so much that happened throughout this novel that it is hard to decide where to start, and where to end. It all happened quickly, and with a lot of depth, and thought put into each scene. There was absolutely a sense of thrill, and end of the world feeling - I mean, it's ZOMBIES!

Now, we've seen Ike before. And I love that Kira takes each of her characters - and I mean this for all of her series - and gives them their own story line with their own issues, their own depth, their own personality. They aren't just sub-characters, and don't just appear here and there throughout her novels. So, we see Phoenix, and Cullen again within the first few pages of this novel, and it's no shock that the trio is found not sure where they are, what they're doing, or how to get out of the sticky situation they are in. This is where Ike plays a large part throughout the novel because of his importance to Phoenix and the rest of the White House members.

Ike was a great character to have his own novel. I feel like as readers we all liked Ike to begin with for his sureness in what he does, and how he does it. He brings a sort of peace to the chaos that is the United States in this tiring, and trying period. Overall this was a great novel. I'm attempting to change my type of reviews instead of giving "book report" reviews, and sincerely hope that this helps any reader that is debating on reading Kira Adams' Darkness Falls Series. Definitely be sure to start with Into the Darkness as each novel does pick up where the other left off.

A glowing 4 Bars to Kira Adams on The Darkness Remains! 





Ike

Trudging my way back, I safely make it back inside our compound. Slipping inside through one of the sliding glass doors on the lower level, I make my way back up to our living quarters. The stench of the dried blood from the lost souls is enough to knock anyone off their feet. I don’t even know what time it is, but I’m heading straight for my shower, wanting to cleanse myself thoroughly. 

As soon as my bedroom door closes, I toss the dangerous weapon to the ground, the needles and blood reaching the carpet at the same time. I pull off my shirt, kick off my socks and shoes, and begin unbuttoning my pants. I make a beeline for my closed bathroom door, and throw it open, already anticipating the feeling of the hot water along my shoulder blades. I’ve been wound up too tight lately. 

I don’t anticipate the hot steam that attacks my face or the sound of running water coming from my shower. My mind begins racing as I dash around the room, headed for my bedside drawer where I keep my loaded gun. I grip it tightly as I approach the hot air pouring out of the bathroom. I swallow, my heartbeat speeding up. Taking small steps, I try not to make my presence known. All my defenses are up, and I want to know who is toying with me. 

All books in the Darkness Falls series will be .99 cents or less from the 13th-16th of December! Don’t miss out on the awesome discounts!
