I really enjoy futuristic thrillers--and with it's setting in the not-so-distant future, In the Place Where There is No Darkness by K.M. Douglas caught my interest. What did I think of the latest book to cross my reading list?
Summary of In the Place Where There is No Darkness. The year is 2019. The Watchers maintain a state of constant surveillance: guns are outlawed, media is censored, and unmanned drones patrol the skies.
Don't judge the book by the length. In the Place Where There is No Darkness may be short--but, it is packed with details and action from the first pages. K.M. Douglas wastes no space in time telling the story--and is able to create a very well written book in a short time. Readers will not feel cheated by the length.
Would I recommend In the Place Where There is No Darkness? This is K.M. Douglas' first book--and it was a wonderful one. Not only would I recommend this book--but, I am excited to read more from the author in the future. I love a good thriller that's based in just enough reality to make it frighteningly possible.
