The Shock of Night: (The Darkwater Saga #1)
By Patrick W. Carr
When one man is brutally murdered and the priest he works for mortally wounded on the streets of Bunard, Willet Dura is called to investigate. Yet the clues to the crime lead to contradictions and questions without answers. As Willet begins to question the dying priest, the man pulls Willet close and screams in a foreign tongue. Then he dies without another word.
Willet returns to the city, no closer to answers than before, but his senses are skewed. People he touches appear to have a subtle shift, a twist seen at the edge of his vision, and it’s as though he can see their deepest thoughts. In a world divided between haves and have-nots, gifted and common, Willet soon learns he’s been passed the rarest gift of all: a gift that’s not supposed to exist.
Now Willet must pursue the murderer still on the loose in Bunard even as he’s pulled into a much more dangerous and epic conflict that threatens not only his city, but his entire world–a conflict that will force him to come to terms with his own tortured past if he wants to survive.
This is a Christian fiction-thriller fantasy and is freaking awesome. I was not expecting this book to be as good as it was. It’s so easy to get lost in this story. The world is built so perfectly great. In every page you turn you’ll find yourself trying to figure out what happen and why. That’s how interested this book keeps you. Definitely a most read for fantasy fans. The book is really great everyone needs to re it. This is the first book to The Darkwater Saga. Can’t wait for the next one.
Also this author has another series called The Staff and the Sword. I haven’t read it but I heard its really good so I’ll be checking that out as soon as I can.
This book was given to me by Bethany House Publishing a division of Baker Publishing Group in exchange of an honest review.
