Publisher's Summary

Christy Barnett is sleeping when her aging German shepherd Molly growls into the darkness outside her bedroom. She wakes to a dim glow provided by her Kindle's screen, thankful that she had fallen asleep while reading again. The power has gone out, the world outside her window is eerily dark and silent. And Molly is weary of something that waits in the hallway, hiding in the shadows.
A dark cloud has fallen over the city of Aberdeen, MD. The population disappears in an instant. For the handful of survivors, those lucky enough to have a light source not connected to the power grid, it's more than terrifying. They're left alone, walking through a nightmare, and that is a fate that could be worse than death itself. The darkness is alive and it is the reason we fear the night.

reminded me of the movie the mist

Any additional comments?

imagine you're sitting on the couch in your living room, texting your friend, as the power goes out. your first reaction is to moan and groan about the loss of signal. but when you lift your head to see why no else one is saying anything, you notice everybody around you is gone. you don't realize that the only reason you're still here is because the light emanating from your cell phone protected you from being snatched away by the darkness when you look around and call out to see where everybody went, you catch something out of the corner of your eye. you see them standing on the edge of the darkness. when you ask them what's going on, all they say is, "turn out the light."

this is a spooky story about what lurks in the dark. there's a small, likeable cast of characters that you come to know pretty intimately through their fear of what's happening. there are some creepy moments that'll raise the hair on the back of your neck.

overall, an entertaining short story! well, 6 hours is short for me. LOL

i agree with amanda-- this is a great story for the halloween season!
