A review by lordjim13
Darkness Reigns by Jill Williamson


This is an interesting, above average indie fantasy, but the major flaw is the lack of clear plot arcs for any of the intriguing characters introduced. By the end of the book, plenty has been set up for them, and an interesting world has been established, but the book ends before anything is resolved. If even one thing had been wrapped up I'd have given it 4 stars but with too much left hanging it just leaves you feeling a bit cheated (mind you, it was free). On the other hand, there's a complex, original world here with characters who seem decent human beings to follow as they struggle against both an unjust society and cataclysmic events.
