I love it when the first few pages of a book draw you in and make you want to keep on reading…with this book, it was the first sentence. "One year to the day after dying, Lucas decided to go home." Of course I had to find out more.

The main character in this book is Lucas. When we first meet Lucas, he is reminiscing on his past, haunted by the death of his family a year before. Very soon into the story he gets a picture message on his phone, which turns his life upside-down. Lucas finds himself
I don't want to say anything that will give away too much of the story since I hate reviews full of spoilers. The main character, Lucas Fowler is a reluctant super-hero which is a staple of the Sci-Fi genre, but in No Darker Fate is handled with a fresh approach. The world of the Scions is dark and hidden in plain sight in Atlanta. I've lived in Atlanta for the past 11 years but never looked at the city in the way it's depicted in this book (unique perspective on the underground scene). At times ...more

My boyfriend got me to read this book...we don't usually share tastes, but I ended up really enjoying it. It kind of reminds me of the X-Files which was one of my all-time fave shows.

The characters are likable to some degree. No maniacal bald-headed evil people in it--just people with agendas that they view as the best course of action. I like it when you can feel some empathy with all the characters even if they're supposed to be the bad ones.

The powers that these people have is really cool. It
This book was quite a change from most of the paranormal/urban fantasy I've read lately. It doesn't have vampires, wizards, werewolves, or any of the typical supernatural types in it.

I didn't think this book would be up my alley. Boy, was I wrong.

This book has a completely new group called Scions who can do some pretty cool stuff, like read minds, kick ass with supernatural strength, and open portals into other dimensions.

The story totally sucked me in from the first chapter. Lucas is forced to

If you're a fan of either sci-fi action movies or comic books then you'll enjoy this book. The author brings to life a dark underworld that exists just out of our sight in which super powered beings live and operate amongst us. The problem being that super powers does not equal super ethics. Despite their power, these beings are just as petty and cruel as normal humans, and due to this our entire world is at risk.....and we don't even know it.

A good setup novel for an ongoing series. Answers a l

Corwin's complex vision stretches over a wide landscape in a growing, then running, and sometimes raging, battle of super powered factions. He evolves his story deftly, forming strong and sympathetic characters as well as evil genius antagonists with frightening abilities that can dig into a person's very neurons. Set some time aside and get ready to keep up with plot twists, strange realities, and superpowered superhumans among the large cast of unique characters.

Like the X-Files on steroids. Really cool premise, paranormal without vampires.

Lots of action and paranormal mystery and intrigue. Works out to be a great read.
