One day, I just went through Amazon's Kindle app and found a bunch of monster stories. I didn't care about previous reviews, I just wanted to read something different. Romance, paranormal romance, and people hiding in holes underground was tiresome. Hungry Darkness, by Gabino Iglesias is one of the books I purchased for a decent ebook price.
first, I loved the cover. Anything that provides a crystal clear, HD picture always wins favor. It looks good- the cover speaks to you, even making you think you know what the story's about already... but no. Not with this one. That's the best part!
The story took place in Brazil and began with Nick, a guy hungry for notoriety and fame via National Geographic. Instead of following the rules, set by the Department of Archeology and Environment of Belize- not to mention the Belize Dive Services, he paid two divers to illegally excavate a portion of Giant Cave, allowing Nick and his crew to capture scenes never seen before and his name to go in books worldwide! Unfortunately, he also opened up a can of trouble so big- it left bodies in its wake all around the waters of Caye Caulker.
Hungry Darkness provided a great story! It's not very long, about 136 pages, and nearly complete with excellent action. The only part that bummed me out was the abrupt ending. I don't know, maybe it was supposed to be a short story, I'm not sure, but the way it just shut down..., I was looking for something else. Maybe a spouse to the creature that was eating everyone up- anything! Instead, it just ended with a thought... and surprising change of heart.
If you're looking for a story that gives you an excellent start and climax- check this out. If you're looking for a short story, that's more like a brief novella, this is your book. But if you're looking for an ending with closure without disappointment- this isn't the one. It sorta leaves you hanging. On to the next read!📚
