If You Love A Scary Story, Then Darkly Wood II Is For You!
In book two, the story once again revolves around Darkly Wood, a ghastly place, where people have disappeared. Daisy May, a Darkly Wood survivor, shivered at the thought, of having to return to that place, but felt she had no choice. Her granddaughter, Holly, was missing and there was no doubt in her mind as to where she was. Darkly Wood was an alarming and terrifying place where blood-thirsty creatures thrived, and nothing was as it seemed. The last thing Daisy May wanted to do, was to enter Darkly Wood again, but if Holly had any chance of survival, she’d have to be found quickly; and Daisy May was the only person who knew exactly where Holly would be. Daisy May and Rose, Holly’s mother, entered the dark, forrest, and as they knew they would, faced horrifying evil. But, the absolute worse was a hideous, cold, calculating demon of a man, Mr. Wormhold. Would they survive Darkly Wood? Maybe, but then again, maybe not.
Although horror is not my usual genre of choice, I have read Max Power’s work before and wanted to check this book out. I was completely captivated. Darkly Wood II is a bone chilling, engrossing story that had me flipping the pages and cringing in my seat. If you don’t mind reading a dark, frightening, blood-curdling story, with a bit of romance and a giant dose of creepiness to it, then Darkly Wood II is your book. Max Power is a talented author, a great storyteller, and a master at spinning tales. You won’t be disappointed.
