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.
A Darker Moon isn't a long book, but it's obvious a lot of care and thought were put into its conception. Since it is a short book, I won't go into a synopsis - you can read that above the book cover. However, I will tell you that I thought the premise was intriguing and although I didn't love the main character, Abe, I did empathize with him and he did grow on me as the story progressed.
So you have Abe, his love interest, Eve and then the brother. So yeah, it's a new twist on the Adam and Cain story, but it's a fresh and interesting take and at times, it was very thought-provoking. Watts has a knack of writing just the right words that I was entranced, pages flying by, Iwas so immersed in the story. So, if you're looking for a new author to try, or you like mythological fantasy, pick up A Darker Moon! It's well worth every cent!
