Description

Abe Finchley is a damaged man, an orphan with no roots, and no family ties. When he finally meets the woman he has been looking for all his life, he finds not just love and passion, but a dark and violent family history that spans generations into humanity's deepest past. Eve is the woman of his dreams; but dream is just another word for nightmare, and Abe knows all about those. Amidst a confused web of lies and secrets, Abe is trying to discover who he is and make sense of what he may become. More than just his future and his new-found love is at stake. When he discovers that he has a brother, a man bound by divine destiny to kill him, Abe is going to have to make a difficult choice. A choice that might redeem the world. A choice that just might destroy it. A Darker Moon is a dark, psychological fantasy. A mythical tale of light and shadow and the unlit places where it is best not to shine even the dimmest light.show more

Our customer reviews

This is a beautifully written work of literature, slow at the start, but becoming more mysterious as it progresses. If you like a complex story, keep reading, as it is not until around the middle that the story begins to take shape. It can be read as a descent from relative normality to scrambled mind to sheer madness, (would anti-halucinogenic drugs help poor Abel?) Or it can be read as strange and compelling mythology come to life. This novel will not be for those who devour simple romances or thrillers, it is for the deep thinkers. And as I said, beautifully written.show more
