    Out of the Darkness, 2010 Epic Award winner

    Out of the Darkness is another amazing novel by the incomparable Tymber Dalton. However, this book took me completely by surprise. While it is the prequel to the Coffeeshop Coven series, it can also be read as a standalone horror novel. This is not your typical Tymber Dalton book, if any of her novels can be called typical. It is totally unique, and actually took me very much by surprise when I read it. I can't say I'm a true fan of horror fiction but this book is far and away above average when it comes to that genre. I absolutely loved every aspect of the story. Add to that the fact that this story won the 2010 Epic Award, and you have a winning novel on your hands. Author Steve Corey has had a lot of ups and downs in life. Yes, he's a famous author, very famous. But his problems with alcoholism and a host of other troubles have made his life more than just difficult. He seems to be losing his grip on a lot of things, including reality at times. His long-suffering wife, Samantha (Sami) has dealt with things as long as she can. It seemed that he'd dealt with the alcoholism of his past but his rage-fueled rants over nothing, his attitudes towards her, so many other stresses, have used up every reserve she has. When she meets up with Steve's agent, Matt, who unwittingly informs her that Steve has rented a house for the summer located outside Brooksville, Florida. Sami's stunned. It's the final straw. For Steve to do this and not say anything to anyone other than Matt is beyond outrageous. Why should she put up with his nonsense anymore? Why doesn't she just leave and file for divorce? But, things aren't always that easy. Sami decides to give Steve another chance. They do move to Florida for the summer. But there are things of which neither are aware. The property and house they've rented has a history that most dismiss as legend. But it's a gruesome and horrible history, and as the Coreys both soon realize, the facts behind that history are all too true. As Matt comes to Florida to help deal with Steve's new book, he becomes caught up in the whirlwind of events that soon overtakes all three. Event piles upon event. New and unexplained circumstances arise nearly every day. It truly appears that there is evil present, evil in its truest form. Steve deals in his own way, which is to say seemingly not at all. Sami and Matt are skeptical. Is all this a prank? Do the locals want them out of the way? Their real estate contact certainly seems to be pressuring the Coreys to outright buy the house but why? They don't know anyone in the area. Could this be a deranged fan trying to get Steve's attention? There has to be some explanation. Sami doesn't believe in anything other than reality. There has to be a logical reason for all the strange things that keep happening. Coincidences do happen. That's all it is, right? What other explanation can there be for the bizarre occurrences? Tymber Dalton has once again crafted an amazingly believable story that blew me away. Brooksville, Florida is a real town, and many of the landmarks that are part of the plot truly exist. Of course, the story is purely fictitious but it's still completely believable. The people are relatable in every way, and I was particularly drawn to a certain subset of characters that made the story all the more enjoyable for me. The fact that this is a true horror story is a departure for Ms. Dalton. But it once again shows how she's able to cross genres with apparent ease. I read this book in one sitting, well into the night, and it scared the heck out of me at times! That's why I give Out of the Darkness my highest recommendation. For me to love a horror story this much is truly something extraordinary. Thank you, Tymber, for writing such an exceptional, award-winning book that again shows just how impressive an author you are, your mastery of your art, and your exceptional writing talent! This is truly a remarkable book! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
