Dark and Gothic. Under Another Sun is multi-faceted and strips the layers back of the human condition. It examines our ability to decipher the logic behind trauma. Our ability to cope with grief. It is a highly intelligent and fascinating novel on multiple levels. D.M. Siciliano has given us another deeply unsettling horror novel but a winner in its own right from Inside. Horror that is so realistic and palpitatingly dark. Our future is national disasters, it gives us a lightbulb moment and reli ...more

I loved her book Inside .... this book to me dragged for me. This is a post apocalyptic book.

Ray is about to find out, whether he’s ready or not. His ‘deceased’ twin sister, Ravynn, is warning him of impending disaster, but Ray can’t seem to convince himself, or his wife, that he’s not crazy.
But Ray isn’t the only one communicating with his sister. Ravynn’s surviving daughter, Amelia, seems to know things that defy reason, in a time when reason is slowly slipping away.
When Ray’s brother-in-law

For those who enjoy apocalyptic sci-fi horror, this one is terrific with many original concepts and unexpected twists and turns. Expect this to be picked up by film makers in the future, it would make one terrifying movie!

Genre: Genres are something which are the sure shot thing about a book. UNDER THE SUN WAS meant to be an apocalyptic horror novel. The apocalyptic part was carried out perfectly. Classifying the book in to a horror genre puts me in a dilemma. I mean , the author accomplished to terrify me at every point of the story. I wouldn't deny that . But I wasn't sure how much of the horror aspect was in it. That said, I would say that it's not for the faint hearted.

IMPRESSION: This book ruined me for all

“Look at this world. What it’s become. It’s such a human thing to take everything for granted.”

What a ride! This novel reminded me of the Nicholas Cage movie, Knowing, mixed with the otherworldly vibe of parallel universes. I have always loved apocalyptic type movies that leave you with that sinister void at the ending credits and the ‘what ifs’ lingering in the back of your mind. That creeping dread of wondering I you’d survive a cataclysmic tsunami or earthquake. Under Another Sun truly captur

The story line of this book is so interesting. I really liked how it played out. Ray is a teacher who lost his sister and adopted her daughter when she died. He’s trying desperately to hold on to reality, but reality is crumbling.

His wife Elena is one of my favorite characters. She is just so resilient, and she tries so hard and does so much. The daughter, Amelia is a great character too. I love how this book showed the magic of being a child and how children are so much better at adapting and b

"Under Another Sun" was a page turner from start to finish. As with "Inside", the plot was captivating, keeping me glued to the pages. Well developed characters, who evoke all sorts of emotion, real and wonderfully eerie atmosphere, just the way I like it! Five stars and if you want to start spooky month with a bang, "Under Another Sun" is the perfect novel to do it! ...more

This haunting, terrifying story of slowly growing destruction across the world grabs you by the collar and doesn't let go. The energy mounts slowly and never stops, reaching an intense crescendo at the end.

Ray, Elena, and Matt are great, complex characters, and their reactions to the events going on around them felt very grounded and real. The story was definitely darker than what I usually gravitate towards, but I'm glad I pushed through to the nail-biting conclusion!

Under Another Sun is an intriguing blend of horror, sci-fi, and a bit of fantasy. It also happens to be an eco-horror novel, which is one of my favorite sub-genres.

Ravynn and Ray are non-identical twins. Ever since Ravynn died a year ago, Ray’s life hasn’t been the same. He’s been dreaming about Ravynn, and it’s getting worse. His wife can’t stand it anymore, and to make matters worse, they are raising Ravynn’s child because her father is a drunk. At the same time, a series of escalating situat

Shelves: fiction
The end of the world is a horrifying idea. What will it look like? What will it feel like? How would we react? These are the questions that haunt us in the back of our minds because we have no idea. Based on current global trends, environmental and climate disaster seems most likely. And it is this end of the world scenario that author Siciliano dives into- a scenario where we are helpless to do anything about it because it's too late. We can only watch helplessly as the world crumbles around us ...more

This is a really scary book, especially that we are in 2020! After reading Under another sun, all I do is watching the sky and the birds for any sign that the end of the world is near. The same thing happened when I watched Left behind. I think apocalyptic books/movies are not for me! Because just the idea of the end of the world scares me.

About the book... It was amazing! Of course it was. D. M. Siciliano is a good horror author. Her first book, Inside is a ghost story and it captivated me from

Honestly, although the buildup for me was a little slow, I loved this book! Not my usual read, I love the other work I've read by Ms. Siciliano and decided I'd be happy to give it a shot. There were definitely notes of horror, and though not quite dystopian, this book is about the end of the world.

At first I thought it would be about saving the world, then I thought it would be about saving as many people as they could, THEN I thought other things hahaha. The point is, this story will keep you

This dark gloom and doom world ending book was just what I needed right about now.

The world is falling and Ray needs to save his family. The only problem is his wife and coworkers think he’s nuts since the signs he’s getting are from his deceased twin! 😯

This book was like some of King’s writing and the movie The Knowing all rolled into one! A great apocalyptic read that actually made me cry during the last chapter. So much more here than a typical end of the world storyline. I loved these chara

I must admit, at first I was I bit disappointed in this one. But then I realized I was going off of my preconceived notion of what an apocalypse should be like. But the author puts a great new angle on the typical apocalyptic novel, and once I let go of my bias towards what it should be, I started to really enjoy this story. And in the end, it was another solid novel by this new author of the horror genre.

Opinions: Under Another Sun was a gift from the heavens! After reading and adoring Siciliano's Inside, I had high expectations for everything about this book: I hoped that the characters were just as relatable, the themes resonated just as loudly with readers, and the ending was just as climactic. Without a doubt, all of my hopes were met, meaning you can expect all of these elements and more from Under Another Sun! Siciliano crea
