    One thought on “In the Place Where There Is No Darkness”

    1. Does any of us really know what the future may hold for us? What if we could go back and have a second chance? Are your eyes wide open to life or are you merely just watching the world pass you by? When seventeen year-old Derrion is assigned a senior project, he chooses to go against the grain and do his project on not of what school and the government taught him, but of the real truth; the truth that he had spent the last four years documenting. You see, one night change it all for Derrion's fa [...]

    2. This book from the start looks absolutely gorgeous, doesn’t it? It doesn’t hurt that the main character is a guy named Derrion that has a great hold on his shoulders. He questions everything that he has been told, but who doesn’t about their world? This book really makes you think of what you would do if you did not know at all what the future held for you, which most of us don’t. Derrion is only seventeen years old, but he is wise passed his years. When he assigned a project, he decides [...]

    3. The title of the book comes from a George Orwell quote, so that should give you some idea of what to expect. Orwell has some pretty tough shoes to fill, so I went in with a bit of skepticism. I came out feeling that author K.M. Douglas did Orwell proud! That’s not to say this is an Orwellian novel. In some ways, it feels a bit like one, but Douglas didn’t emulate Orwell so much as create a new bit of Orwellian fiction for a different generation, if that makes sense.The first chapter of the b [...]

    4. This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest reviewIn the Place Where There is No Darkness is a powerful and thought-provoking read. It’s the kind of book that makes you think and that challenges your preconceptions. It’s about action, but not perhaps in the sense that a lot of dystopian novels are. The book is more about knowledge and its power, in a society not too distant from our own that has manipulated the internet into a tool of propaganda.I was amazed while reading [...]

    5. *I read this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions in this review are my own*First of all, if you are looking for a dystopian novel with non-stop action and some sort of love triangle, then this isn't the book for you. If you're looking for a book that challenges the way you think, than this book may be for you.The setting of the story is in the not to distant future but one can easily mistake it for today. Tight government control, abolishing certain amendments, absolutely no free [...]

    6. If you like 1984 and Conspiracy Theories, then this is your book. I do not. So I must be honest, i did not enjoy reading a good chunk of this book for several reasons, but the book makes up for it in other areas. The story begins with Derrion witnessing the death of his father. Which was written more like a prologue, not chapter 1. But I can see why the author choose to do that. Years later after the death of his father, america has become the spying eye, big brother, uncle sam on steroids. They [...]

    7. This review (and others) can be found on My Full Bookshelf ReviewsI received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.This book was good, but it wasn't my kind of Dystopian. So before you read my review, make sure you have this in mind.Reasons this didn't work for me as much as I wanted include:-The fact that it takes place five years in the future. (I read the blurb wrong, so it was kind of a surprise. Totally my fault.) Do I think that the US could get to this state in five [...]

    8. I read this book with no preconceptions, which was a good thing. I honestly didn't even read the synopsis closely enough to pick up on hints about where this book may go. I just love the title, and the cover is beautiful in it's simplicity. I'm a sucker for a good cover.Derrion is the main voice readers meet. I loved him. Not for any of my typical reasons for liking a male lead. I loved him because he questioned the world. He wasn't satisfied with the stories he was being fed, and he asked for t [...]

    9. I want everyone to stop what they're doing and read this book. Open your eyes to a not so distant future we could all face. From the days of our founding fathers this warning has resounded on a constant loop.No spoilers. If you love fantasy, sci-fi, are into conspiracies, support small government, support free thinking and free speech I can't stress this enough Read,In the Place Where There Is No Darkness.This story is told as if it were fiction, but the reality scares me. The Invisible War is [...]

    10. I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway. First, a disclaimer: Other people may like this book a lot more than I did. The writing style, themes, and ending were all things I really didn't click with. I finished the book largely because I had received it for free from the author and I make a point to review all books I get for free.I really didn't like this book. I don't think it's a bad book, but the writing style was not one I particularly enjoyed. The main character is very well fleshed ou [...]

    12. You can also find this revie on my blog: The Little Book Pixie*I received a free copy in Exchange for an honest review*Let me start by saying that if you’re looking for an excellent dystopian novel this might be the book for you. Things I liked.-It wasn’t so far into the future; it actually takes place five years from now.-Derrion knew from the start that the way his government worked is not right. I hate it when the main character has to fall in love to see that things are wrong but not in [...]

    13. Do you ever think of what the future will be like for our kids or grandchildren? The world we know today will not be the same when they are older.Can you imagine living in a world where everything was electronic? You don't even have a key to your own house. They use retina software to verify you are who you are. Drones fly in the air around you. Derrion has some trauma and horrible memories about his father and his death. Derrion teases to the fact that he knows what the world use to be like, ou [...]

    14. *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*Overall I liked this book. At times it reminded me of Jack London's The Iron Heel, and also Feed by M.T. Anderson. It was the underlying themes that were similar, not the stories or styles. If you enjoyed these books I would say to give this book a try, it will give you some good food for thought.I'm a bit torn by the end. One part of me is really happy about the ending, it leaves things with a lot of hope. Another part of me [...]

    15. I received this book free for an honest review. The good: The writing is enjoyable. The bad: There is almost no plot until about 75% through. Most of the book is the paranoid ramblings of the main character. Well-written ramblings, but unless you're a conspiracy theorist (and I'm definitely not), you probably won't enjoy it. I love dystopian, but this book is only set 5 years in the future. It is not believable that things would have changed that much in 5 years. Maybe if this was set 100 years [...]

    16. I was given this book to read for an honest review. I have to say it is like 1984with sugar. I struggled with 1984 and it took me a year of picking it up and putting it down again just to finish. This book only took me a day to buzz through and I may need to re-read bits as I honestly skimmed through quite a bit. Don't get me wrong there because the character development is amazing; I am just programmed towards high action dystopia novels. If you loved 1984, this will be a favorite.

    17. Truly amazing read that really makes you think. I had a hard time putting it down and the ending definitely wasn't what I expected. Highly recommend. I received a copy of this book for my honest review.

    18. I love this book, it was completely amazing! It makes you appreciate life a lot more!! best book to be happy and appreciate what surround us!!
