Book Review: In the Place Where There is No Darkness by K.M. Douglas

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.

Derrion Parsing is a high school senior and the son of an ex-Army Ranger. Unlike his classmates, he has access to information from the time before the Invisible War, when the government shut down the Internet, reformatting into a propaganda tool. When Derrion attempts to use this information as part of a school project, he awakens to his worst nightmare.

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.
