DARK FUTURE by KC Klein is just that, dark. The title doesn't deceive, the story takes the reader through Kris Davenport's eyes to a very dark future where danger exists 24/7 and not always from the aliens trying to destroy every last human being. This riveting tale about a future resembling TERMINATOR SALVATION without the giant machines is dark, bloody and action-packed. Kris is a normal gal trying to make her way in a normal life as a medical intern when suddenly, she is confronted with her f...more

This is a very dark book - one of the darkest I have read in a very long time. It made me cringe. It made me heartsick. It made me ask myself, how much can two characters take? And what would you be willing to do for love and for survival?

The bulk of the story is set in a futuristic world that was a lot like the future in the Terminator movies, except there were aliens picking off the humans instead of robots. Medical intern Kris Davenport has been transported decades into the future after being...more
A Voracious Reader (a.k.a. Carol)
Kris Davenport, a surgical intern, is woken up in the middle of the night and is scared shitless by a future version of herself. An older, weary, harder, tougher, kick ass version, but definitely her. Her future self tells her she has come back to send Kris forward, again, to get The Prophecy right. She can’t fail because Armageddon has happened and the dark future rests on her shoulders. She needs to fulfill The Prophecy and turn the dark future to the light. And to do that she needs to run up...more

Kris Davenport is having an interesting night. First she’s awakened by a woman that claims to be her from the future, then her double takes her to the mountains, explaining on the way that she’s got to get things right this time with ConRad, then tells her to get out of the car and take a run, that there’s not much time before Armegeddon. A bit jarring, yes? Well, Kris better get used to jarring, because Dark Future is one...more

Kris is awakened by noises in her house at 4:30am. She's sure an intruder broke in and decides to try to find out who it is. Creeping through the house, she's astounded when she finds the intruder is herself. From the Future. The future her is even better than the original! Then she learns why the future her is there and how it affects her. What follows is a love story and a fight to end all fights. Kris is pushed beyond her limits and more. She sees things and experiences things she never thou...more

Get this book immediately and read it. You'll be glad you did. Frankly, I was scared of it b/c I'd heard it was very dark (and ok, it is) and I'm so not a fan of dark, but once I started reading this, I could not put it down. Gripping from start to finish and the ending is so great! Trust me. You want to read this book. Seriously. Read it.
I gobbled this book up, and look forward to reading more about this apocolyptic world. The hero was HOT!!
Dark Future's book blurb had me super excited for the story of aliens and Kris' Terminator-style time jump to save the human race.
"Awakened in the middle of the night by a future version of herself, Kris Davenport is given a mission; go forward in time to save the world and his life. Of course, her future self doesn't tell her who he is, just sends her into the abyss and straight into an alien invasion."
Sadly, as I read, I spanned the rainbow of feelings. What began as excitement, quickly swi...more

Dark, gritty, and utterly entrancing, this book absolutely blew my socks off.

Let me backtrack for just a moment. To be perfectly honest, things got off to a bi...more
This book had a really intriguing set up.

The 'travel to the future to save someone' made me think of Terminator and the future world Klein created was dark and grim. So far so good.

I wish I could say this was a great read. I really do, because it has so much potential. Sadly enough that potential isn't used and the plot of this story made no sense at all to me.

The romance was a miss as well. There's absolutely no believable build-up. I really couldn't find a reason why Kris and ConRad suddenly l...more
I feel like I really could have enjoyed this book if it weren't a romance novel. Which, you know, is a funny and probably telling thing to say about a romance novel, but there it is. Dark Future has an interesting concept, some nice snark, and an amusingly awkward heroine who flails rather realistically in her new setting. Unfortunately it's also got her relationship with ConRad Smith, and that just sort of ruins everything.

I actually kind of liked our heroine, Kris Davenport - quite a bit for a...more
This was a very dark and intense romance, without all the fluff. There was definitely the Terminator vibe in here, but instead of the past, Sarah Connor was brought to the future to save mankind. Kris, was brought to the future unwillingly to save ConRad, which is suppose to be her mission. And of course she doesn't have first had knowledge of what is happening. First quarter of the book showed Kris discovering what lies in the future with aliens invading the Earth, and ConRad is a Commander of...more
Let me make something very clear from the outset--I have conflicted feelings in regards to this book. For a good deal of the book it was playing out beautifully. Kris gets sent to the future by a future version of herself (a crazy, deranged, gun-wielding future version no less)to save HIM, gets stuck in a world where women are a scarcity, giant alien bugs roam around eating them and the religious zealots are in control.

If ConRad seemed to be more bi-polar then sane, I forgave that since the enti...more

Really enjoyed this book. KC Klein has a quirky, fast-paced, intensely action-oriented style. But maybe the best part is the never-seem-like-they-will-get-together romance. So satisfying. Lots of aliens and death and life-at-stake. Action-movie fans will like this book.
Madeline Martin
OMG - this was an incredible book. It was action packed from the start. Kris was a relatable heroine (and has some great I-know-that-exact-feeling!! moments) and ConRad was uber alpha hero in full survival mode (AKA rugged sexy). I got so sucked into this book, my entire life went on hold so I could finish reading it (and for a Type A like me, that's saying a lot).
If you want a book so good you can't put it down (or even think of eating/sleeping) GET THIS BOOK!!
Full review to be posted soon. I really liked the premise of this book, but it really needed a lot of polishing up. Also the world-building was a huge let down and in a lot of ways pretty confusing at times and it felt that too much was going on but not a lot time and focus was exploring this.
Vijaya Schartz
Definitely dark and tortured, but a romance after all. If you like it dark and rough, and hopeless until the very end, you'll love this book.
Jodi Vaughn
Fantastic book! Couldn't put it down once I started. Will be sure to read anything KC Klein writes!!
