Below are two book reviews from A Darkness Descending. I hope will entice you to pick up the book.

  I was so happy to get the back story of this enigmatic character. Marcus was the intriguing main character in Debra’s first novel, “Dark Night of the Soul”, a well written first novel in the horror genre. I really loved Marcus, so when I heard about this origin story I had to read it, and it was worth it. It really brings Marcus to life. While the first novel is great as a standalone, I recommend that you read this one first. What a ride.

I loved it!  Marcus is a sympathetic hero with a code of ethics forged by his early years with a loving family.  I love the play between him and Gregor and his ability to torture the torturer.  I love the human kindness he meets along the way.

5 out of 5 stars

I loved this book even though I’d never before been interested in vampires.  The basic storyline is compelling and each character has been fully fleshed out by the author.  Wonderful, descriptive language!!

5 out of 5

Dark Night of the Soul was intriguing and kept me wondering what was going to happen until the very end!  It was a great outing for this new author and I can’t wait for more.

The best “vampire” story I’ve read.  This is a great story.  Marcus is an enigmatic and conflicted man; a man of strong moral character in an impossibly strange situation.  Filled with well-rounded and (mostly) likable characters that you will really care about.  I read it in one sitting.  Though this is a fine standalone book, I recommend that you also read the prequel, “A Darkness Descending.
