Lindas Book Obsession Reviews “The Dark Hour” by K.J. Young, May 4, 2021. On Tour with Suzy Approved Book Tours
OMG! Wow! K.J. Young, the author of “The Dark Hour” has written a hauntingly, chilling thriller that is so extremely intense, suspenseful and frightening. I would recommend not reading this novel before you go to sleep!! This novel is so edgy, twisted, and horrifying, it is really a thriller and horror reader’s dream come true. I would highly recommend this book for the vivid descriptions and storytelling. The genres for this story are thriller, suspense, horror, mystery and fiction. The timeline is set in the author’s present and goes to the past and possible future when it pertains to the characters and events. The author describes her dramatic characters as complex, complicated, manipulative, greedy, aggressive, determined, quirky, and scary.
Marc Norman is thrilled that he is hired as a home health aid, especially with the money that he will be making. He is very manipulative and charming and is determined to become wealthy working for an older wealthy man and his sister. There is a doctor always on call, and a society of friends at their beck and call. Mark comes from a dysfunctional family that doesn’t believe he can amount to anything. Marc is warned by another aid, and a stranger to be very careful what you wish for.
Although Roy and Alma Algrave are older, they were once had a spectacular magician show with unique performances. Are they really as frail, and needy as they seem?
The former aid is no longer at the older residence, but kept telling Marc that she was having unusual, unbelievable dreams that felt that they were very real. When Marc starts noticing things and having dreams, he really tries to rationalize. Is this from his imagination, or is this real? The reader will have the same eerie feeling.
Oh, K.J. Young!, you can really write a very dark, creepy, story, that I highly recommend for readers that enjoy an amazing chilling thriller.
