Book Review: Dark Dweller


Captain Kara Psomas was pronounced dead when her research vessel slammed into Jupiter.

More than a century later, the crew of the Paralus, a helium mining freighter, find a pristine escape pod with a healthy young girl nestled inside. A girl who claims to be Kara-and she brings a message of doom.

She says she has been waiting in the dark for that exact moment. To be found by that particular crew. Because an ancient cosmic being has tasked her with a sacred responsibility.

She claims she must alter the Fulcrum, a lever in time-no matter the cost to the people aboard-or condemn the rest of civilization to a very painful and drawn-out demise.

She sounds convincing. She appears brave. She might well be insane.

My Review
I was looking forward to reading this book as I have read another scifi thriller by this author. It was Condition Black for which Mr. Worthington co-work with Stu Jones. I really liked that book thus the reason I wanted to read this book. Sadly, this book just did not work out as well for me.

I do like the space opera style that I got from this book. I could picture the world and the characters playing out like a movie or tv series in my head. So, what I struggled with is the slow-moving pace in the beginning. It really did seem like it took a long time before anything really exciting happened. Also, I never fully embraced the characters as much as I hope to do so. Overall, this is still a nice read.
