Mama's Thoughts on Emerging From Darkness:

Gutted, wrecked, devastated, ever so slightly hopeful, these would all be accurate in describing how I felt during and after reading the sequel to Into the Darkness. In Emerging From Darkness, Phoenix and the gang are not given a break, there's no time to catch your breath in the zombie apocalypse after all. Again Kira Adams keeps the pace nothing short of frantic, even though we get to see more development of the characters and their relationships. In a

OMG, really? Really? You are going to leave it at THAT?

If you haven’t read the first in this series you will want to do that before picking up this sequel which carries on ably from the last. I will tell you now, the writing is just as sharp, the danger and violence even more intense, as the group of survivors continues on their quest.

Phoenix and her sister, Rian are together again but that doesn’t mean they are safe, not by a long shot. Soldiers Ike Glass and Ace Cullen are protective as alway

I have received an ARC copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts are 100% mine and I was not compensated in any way.

I have to say that I feel really lucky that I was able to do firstly beta reading and then I received an ARC of this amazing book! I love, adore and I am simply obsessed with this series!
The book picks up straight after first book has finished. Phoenix and Rian have been kidnapped by degenerates. Ike, Cullen and Foster are kneeling in front of

Hell yes! If the world turned to shit ('scuse the French) I would want to survive the same way Phoenix does with Cullen (AKA Heartthrob of the Year). Kira, you have delivered an excellent sequel after an incredible start to the series. I really love the direction this series is heading in!

Emerging from Darkness starts where Into the Darkness left off. From page one there is action and drama. Until the very last moment I was kept in complete suspense through all the intense fight scenes. The love

*I received an ARC from the author for an honest review**

I absolutely loved Into The Darkness and I have to say I loved this book just as much! The book picks up right where I was left hanging from Into The Darkness where Phoenix and Rian were taken away by the degenerates while Cullen and Foster were held at gunpoint. This book was a whirlwind rollercoaster! This was such an intense, action-filled, emotional book! I was thrown for a loop worrying what would happen to each character. I was absol

What can i say? This part two of the zombie apocalypse is even more amazing than the first! Kira Adams keeps you wondering if Phoenix and Cullen will ever find a small piece of happiness and a time when their not running for their lifes. Ike is such a commanding take charge guy, and the world is lucky that he is. This book is a great intense read. The roller coaster these characters call life is chaotic and they are very determined to succeed with their mission, finding a cure, and rebuilding a ...more

**I received an ebook ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review**

I was ridiculously excited to get my hands on this book. I devoured Into the Darkness in a few short days, fell in love with Phoenix, Cullen, and Ike, and was left craving more.

Emerging from Darkness picks up right where the first book left off. Phoenix and Rian are in trouble, Ike and Cullen want nothing more than to help them, but unfortunately things are at a standstill all around thanks to the biters and degenerates.

Thank you, Kira, for the ARC copy of this outstanding sequel to Into The Darkness! This is one hell of a crazy ride, and I absolutely loved it. This series was not what I expected it to be, and I promise you it very well deserves the 5 stars that I have now given both books. Well done, Kira, on a great genre of books!

We met Phoenix, Cullen, and Ike in Into the Darkness. There’s a virus that is turning everyone into a zombie and the prisons have been let loose and that group calls themselves Degenerates. This doesn’t make for a very friendly world. Add in the fact that Phoenix seems to have something everyone wants, and you’re in for a world of deceit and treachery. The only people she has to rely on are Cullen, Ike, and Rian.

I still really like all these characters and am afraid of what’s happening next. I w

WARNING: There are graphic murder descriptions.

I loved and hated Emerging from Darkness because it was fantastic, but so heartbreaking. Emerging from Darkness was definitely more intense and more emotional than Into the Darkness had been. This isn't the kind of book

The experiences that Cullen, Phoenix, and Ike continually go through changed the characters they were from the first book. They had so many struggles, and when they finally seem to get a break, something else happens that tests their

***I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review***

I have been waiting for this sequel since finishing Into the Darkness. Into the Darkness began the series when a government project goes bad and the much of the general population is infected and becomes zombies. The main characters, Phoenix, Ike and Cullen, are the type of characters that suck you into their reality. They are so well written!
Emerging from Darkness continues our saga as the three live through struggles t

At the start of book 2, Phoenix and Rian are both gone, with the Degenerates. Ike, Cullen, and Foster were left behind. Foster has been murdered and Ike and Cullen turned the tables. What happened to the Doc that Cullen found back at the Safe House? I love seeing how strong Rian has become with the fighting bit. She's great! It shows how close her bond with Phoenix is, and just what she thinks of Jerrica. Watching 'how' Jerrica, Rian and the Doc get away is nothing short of awesome. Watching Cul ...more

This is the second part to Into The Darkness so going into this book I knew what to expect OR I thought I did !
Zombies ? Yes
Bad Guys ? Yes
Difficulties? Yes
Hardship ? Yes
Love ? Yes
But what I didn't expect was the amount of emotion I'd be going through just by reading a few words on a page .
Kira has a way of making you the reader feel like an extra in the story, you feel happiness when they are happy, pain when they feel pain , anger when they feel angry , butterflies in your tummy when that

Emerging from Darkness by Kira Adams: As the story continues in Book 2, Cullen and Phoenix finally find each other to just be ripped apart again by the Degenerates and the repulsive Earl and Jerrica. Not wanting to give ANYTHING away… I’ll propose a few questions. Will Phoenix and Rian get away from their captors alive? Will Cullen and Ike survive the Degenerates at gun point? Will Phoenix and Cullen ever get toget

Kira truly outdone herself with EFD!!! There are so many raw emotions going through as I'm typing this that I don't even know where to start getting really happy and excited for a character then boom something bad happens. I think Kira really wanted her books to make you feel like this could really happen and wanted you to feel the shock and heartache of a characters death. I mourned when they mourned... I laughed when they laugh.. I cheered on certain characters to kill people... Th ...more

Emerging from Darkness (Darkness Falls 2) Kira Adams 5 Zombie Killing Hashtags

Wow how I loved this book - just as much and if not more than book 1. Each chapter was really fast paced and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.

This book picks up where book 1 left off, it's full of action, drama, killing, bloodshed and the fight for survival. I was heartbroken when certain character's didn't survive. I connected so well with the character's and was truly transported into their post-apocalyp

This is by far my  favorite book by Kira Adams to date! It's the second book in her zombie apocalypse series and let me just tell you if you haven't read it you need to! Phoneix, Ike, and Cullen are back and taking things to a whole new and awesome level. It's like The Walking Dead; you never know what's going to happen or who's going to die next. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat through out the entire story. Will Phoneix  and her sister meet back up with the guys? What's going t ...more

The second part of the Darkness falls series is here, and you have to purchase it!

Having read the first book and loving the story, but also wanting to know more and what happens next, this had to be picked up.
This story will make you want to scream, it will make you angry, it will also bring you tears, but all in the best way possible, you will get answers that you have been waiting for.

Will the gang get back together, who will survive and who won't, will the degenerates get the ass kicking they

After reading Emerging From Darkness, the story continues to surprise and keep me in suspense the whole time. It story begins at the end of the first book, Into the Darkness, with them fighting for their lives. Throughout the book, emotions is running high, it is between love, betrayal, lost, and sense of hope. They are in the world full of zombies, trying to find a way to cure, and survivor at the same time. I really enjoy the second book, so much that I literally finish this book within a coup ...more

I received an ARC for an honest review.

This book has you on the edge of you seat the entire time. There are ups and downs to this book. You get to read more in Phoenix, Cullen and Ike point of views, so you know where and what they are doing, throughout this book. You may have tears at some area (I know I did) of the book. Kira Adams amazes me, this is my third or fourth book I read from her. I will continue to read her writing.

Emerging From Darkness, is book two in this series, so go read book

As I'm sure everyone knows by now, I'm a huge fan of Kira Adams so I was very excited to read this book and Oh. My. God. It certainly doesn't disappoint! Phoenix, Cullen and the rest of the characters become even more consumed by the zombie apocalypse in this story and the way they grow and progress is really believable and actually relatable. The plot is fast-paced, dark, exciting and full of the twists and turns I've come to expect from this author. Of course, there is also a lot of steamy rom ...more

Oh.My.God!! I cannot say how much I am enjoying this series and am on tenterhooks waiting for the next one!!
A couple of the main group are lost in this instalment, but my goodness I feel like I'm right beside Phoenix and fighting too!!
We have closure from the last cliffhanger and are left with another... Kira you're killing us!!! Haha, get it??! Am hoping that the last one doesn't take to long to read, I HAVE to know how it ends!!

Emerging from Darkness picks up right where Into the Darkness leaves off. This book follows Phoenix, Rian, Ike and Cullen as they head towards DC. This book also includes some back story for the characters. I was really happy when the Degenerates got what was coming to them - but I have a feeling that wasn't the last we will see of them. This book did have some twists that I didn't see coming. All in all, a great book, and I can't wait for the next one! ...more

Good read! Love the multiple character perspective! It's hard to rate this book only because I took so long to read it due to a crazy past last 6 months and so I feel that it's hard to really rate it as a whole because my experience of reading was interrupted. As a Walking Dead fan I love the zombie genre! Just when things get normal-ish, the cliffhanger!!!! Ahhhh! ...more
