The Shock of Night

A Book Review

The Shock of Night sm

Welcome to a world a bit different than our own, where certain people have been given amazing gifts. These gifts, coupled with their unique talents and personalities allow them to help the world around them.

But what happens when an ungifted man receives a gift that was never suppose to exist?

He has to fight for his life.

And what a fight it becomes.

If you are a fan of fantasy, Patrick Carr is a must read author. He’ll dump you right in the middle of the action without pausing to explain everything first. The reader is left to gather clues for themselves, proving you are as intelligent as the author believes.

I was on the edge of my seat throughout the book and I can’t wait to read the next tale in The Darkwater Saga. There is still so much about the world Carr created that I don’t know, and I’d want to learn more.

I highly recommend this book to serious readers of Medieval fantasy.

The Shock of NightThe Darkwater Claims All Who Enter It.
All But One.

When one man is brutally murdered and the priest he works for mortally wounded, Willet Dura, reeve to the king of Bunard, is called to investigate. As he 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 his task, but the clues to the crime lead to contradictions and questions without answers, and his senses are skewed. People he touches appear to have a subtle shift, as though he can divine 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 dangerous conflict that threatens not only his city, but his entire world–a conflict  that will force him to come to terms with his inability to remember how he escaped the Darkwater Forest–and what happened to him inside it.
