Darkness Falls

Darkness Falls
Nature’s Fury #1
by AE Faulkner
Genre: YA Dystopian
As nature tires of human destruction, two sisters must face a changing
environment that stands between them and survival.

When Quinn and Riley set out on a family vacation with their parents, the
trip ends before it begins. Mother Nature interferes with their
plans, setting off a sequence of events that thrusts the teens into a
hostile landscape.
Stranded, with limited supplies, struggling to figure out who they can trust
along the way, they must determine how to survive nature’s evolving fury.
AE Faulkner is a young adult dystopian author. Her debut novel, Darkness
Falls, is the first book in the Nature’s Fury series, which explores
the Earth’s response to humans poisoning her streams, abusing her
animals and destroying her beauty.

She has a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Millersville University
and a master’s degree in advertising, public relations &
journalism from Temple University.
Although she escaped in books as a child, college textbooks sucked the fun out
of reading. Years later, The Hunger Games trilogy became the spark
that rekindled her love of books. After devouring that series, she
quickly became captivated by dystopian novels.
After several years of reading them, she decided to take a stab at writing
one that combined her love for nature with her fear of human
My Review
5 Stars

Quinn and Riley are with their parents and on the way to vacation in Delaware but end up in an accident that kills their parents. On their own they decide to continue on to their destination. But then Mother Nature goes violent and storms come out of nowhere killing many. They girl hole up but have to adventure out when their supplies run low. They run into a couple of guys and stay at their place. But when Quinn wakes up she finds Riley gone. It seems some people have plans for Riley and it’s up to Quinn to save her.

When I read the summary for this book I couldn’t wait to get reading it, you all know I love a good dystopian story. But the book was so much more. Yes, Mother Nature has finally had enough. But it is more about Quinn doing whatever it took to get Riley back, even if it was not a good idea.

I quickly got into this story and couldn’t put it down. It’s not what I expected but it was so much more. And to learn that this is the first book from AE Faulkner, I was shocked. Darkness Falls is a great read that I strongly recommend checking out. Now I can’t wait to get my hands on book two.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
