"Darker Things" by Rob Cornell
Craig Lockman is the main character's alias. He's been retired from "The Agency," a secret, paranormal-battling government agency, and has been hiding for 15 years. Until one day, a young teenaged girl shows up on his doorstep. Not only does this girl know his real name, but she claims to be Lockman's daughter. Before Lockman can find out how she found him, a black-ops team of assassins attacks them. However, these aren’t ordinary killers — they’re heavily armed vampires sent by his most hated enemy. Lockman is forced to run with his daughter in tow. Now, he must protect her from an onslaught of horrors while searching for who betrayed him and why.
This story is chalked full of vampires, ghosts, werewolves, ogres, demons and some very sleazy humans. It's one breathless moment after another as Lockman attempts to save the world from a paranormal apocalypse which could cost him his soul.
I liked this story, but it wasn't what I thought it would be. That's on me because I didn't read up on what this story was all about. The categories for this book are Dark Fantasy, Horror, Science Fiction, & Superheroes.
The story kept my attention and read very fast. It is not a super deep, or super intellectual story, but it is a good ol' fashioned action-packed thriller. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Dark Legion, soon.
