Paris, 2037. Alexandre Lamarque of the French external security service is hunting for eco-terrorists. Experience has taught him there is no one he can trust – not his secretive lover Mariam, not even his old mentor, Professor Fayard, the man at the centre of the web. He is ready to give up. But he can’t.

In search of the truth, Alex must follow the trail through an ominous spiral of events, from a string of brutal child murders to a chaotic coup in North Africa. He rapidly finds himself in a heart-thumping race against chaos and destruction. He could be the world’s only hope of preventing THE COMING DARKNESS . . .

Book Review

The Coming Darkness is a shocking dystopian novel which is set in Paris in 2037.

Alexandre Lamarque works for the external security service.

At this time the world is under a political unrest with global warming and viruses sweeping the world. Whilst investigating, Alex finds horrific murders and a coup in Africa. He is shocked to find further destruction and chaos.

The Coming Darkness is a fast- paced story and at times a complex thriller. I had to slow down at certain chapters to understand the scientific terminology.

I enjoyed the dystopian elements to this book and thought about our own future in this ever-changing world.

I enjoyed Alex’s character and his relationship with Mariam. He is desperate to do the right thing but realises others have a higher power that can alter the world’s population immensely.

An intriguing read which I may read again as feel I would garner extra details and meanings of this book.
