Book Description:

"He was my darkness and I was his light. We couldn't exist without each other."

For me, life was simple. I went to school and studied. I spent time with my friends and stayed out of trouble. I didn't drink or swear and I only dated gentlemen. I was the typical good girl with a bright future. My world seemed perfect.

But that was about to change.

Ryder Delaney was the one imperfection in my life. He was the bad boy, the black sheep, the one your mother always warned you about. He had only one hard-and-fast rule - Don't fall in love.

But some rules were meant to be broken.

We were best friends, inseparable since childhood despite our differences. I knew the real man hiding behind the tattoos and bad attitude. He knew all my secrets and dreams. But he didn't know there was one thing I wanted and couldn't have...him.

But sometimes Fate has a way of intervening. Soon our world collapsed. War erupted. Darkness prevailed. Alone and on the run, our only goal was to survive and to ignore the feelings we had for each other. But love is powerful...

and so is the darkness.



This story was different and has a post-apocalyptic feel for sure. I was scared, nervous, and devastated while this story played out. What made me so nervous is that the tragedy in the book could actually happen. Terrorism is not an everyday worry for us in the US like overseas but Promise Me Darkness is a good example of a terrifying possibility. An attack on our soil in this magnitude would surely change our lives and will destroy society as we know it.
Amongst all the chaos is a crazy passionate love story. Ryder and Maddie are soul mates. There is not another word for them as far a relationships go but my goodness do they fight it tooth and nail. Best friends since grade school they are inseparable. As the world crumbles around them they are left with each other and some friends in order to survive and make it home, hours away for safety.

Their situation is what kept me glued to the pages but Ryder and Maddie’s love story kept me begging for more. I enjoyed the writing and like the pace of the story. This was definitely one of my top reads of the year.
