The Darkness by Brittney Leigh is the Eighth volume of the Bulwark Anthology. I have read in a total of three paperbacks within the Bulwark Anthology series and enjoyed them all. What I particularly liked about The Darkness is that it's set as Dear Diary, with each chapter being a different date of Dear Diary from September 15th up to October 31st. The story is about four friends, at Bulwark high school who are, Sophie, Scott, Chloe and Chris. Do you believe in spells? Look out! I think a spell ...more

‘Local tribe protesting Bulwark High School being built on sacred Indian ground’

Brittney Leigh steps into the literary circle with a book that suggests she has true promise as an author. THE DARKNESS is the eighth volume in the Bulwark Anthology, an impressive collection of authors responding to the paranormal thriller BULWARK by the well-known and respected author Carole Roman.

While Brittney’s story is focused on the small town of Bulwark and its inhabitants and dark mysteries, the technique s

The Darkness is an enjoyable story with traces of mystery, horror, fairytale, time travel and coming of age. I enjoyed the “dear diary” type of writing, it suited the character and reinforced the high school setting of the book. The author captured the drama of high school and melded it well with the supernatural aspects of the story. Her characters had realistic teen reactions and it was easy to like them. This is a stand-alone novella but it still melds well with other stories in the anthology ...more

I like the structure of this book. It is presented as a collection of diary entries. It reflects the life of a teenage girl named Sophia. I liked reading about her feelings for boys because it sounded realistic, but I also love the fact that she loves to write. This character resonates with me because I also enjoy writing. The Darkness centers around the disappearance of a teenage boy and the mysterious things that happen in the fictional town of Bulwark in Georgia. Every character and every ele ...more

Oh, I really like the structure of this one. 'Dear Diary', indeed :P The format is liberating, as allows the narrator to avoid trying to be anything but who she really is, all her feelings unfiltered and out on the open.

I really enjoyed the way the four friends interact, and how Sophie's rose-tinted vision of Chris changes as we advance into the story.

And the constant thread of missing children is also present here, and the teenagers are decided to find what's really going on.

A very enthralling

A refreshing read. The style reminds me of a Goosebumps book with more teenage situations in it.

Not to bad..yet not that hooking feeling you get when you just cant put the book down. Written in a diary form is kinda ehh to me. Not really a story per sey when it tells just what was or happened in that day. Smelly lockers, voices coming from lockers at school. Finding out and doing research of the town of Bulwark to see why so much is going on and not talked about. School kids in search of answers and their missing friend. Think could have been a bit more to the story then just ending at meo ...more
