rated 3.5 out of 5 A sci fi book is never my first choice of reading material. I'm a girl who likes a lot of romance mixed in with her demons and creatures that go bump in the night and i find Sci Fi doesn't deliver that for my needs. Yet i was intensely intrigued by the synopsis of Predators of Darkness when the author wrote and asked me for a review. So i hiked up my big girl pants and ventured into waters i rarely went into. And was pleasantly surprised with Predators of Darkness by Leonard D Hilley The characters held my attention. Fully rounded and had such great depth to them, i particularly liked Daniel the lead character. Some are more complex than others, but he stood out for me with his take charge air about him. While not everything i found engaging, some of the plot left me with a "huh" face, and some points i just thought not quite believable for the context of the story. Not having read anything post apocalyptic before i thought the author weaved an interesting tale giving real depth to each character even the secondary ones. It was an interesting premise on shifters i hadn't seen before, not wanting to give too much away to spoil the plot it's a kind of "you have to read it to understand" but you know if i liked a sci fi book then it has to be good since i have ADD with anything that's not predominantly in the romance genre. Lots of gore and scary moments, some a little too gory for my liking, but for a die hard sci fi fan they will love it. Overall an enjoyable read, a book that makes you think "WTF, i hope this doesn't really happen!" hah.
