Description

What would you do if the sun set... Forever?

Lexi finds herself a prisoner in her own home after the sun sets and refuses to rise again. At first, it was an inconvenience; now it's downright dangerous. In the four weeks since the darkness descended, humanity has all but given up. Violent crime has become part of everyday life and everyone is a potential killer. No-one can be trusted.

But, that's not all Lexi has to worry about. The darkness has brought something with it.

Something deadly...

CHAPTER ONE

––––––––

The sound of the doorbell echoed around the house. It was so loud - so invasive - that Lexi thought it could have been heard for miles. Her body cringed.

Just take the parcel. Sign the thing. Shut the door.
