Book Tour + ARC Review: Out of the Dark by Claire C. Riley
‘Out of the Dark #1’
We are temporary. Finite.
The choices we’ve made, the people we have loved. Who we used to be no longer matters.
Because now it is all about the ending. And the ending always comes too soon.
There’s fear in the dark. And behind every drop of light, the shadows creep and the darkness comes in the form of clawing, red-eyed monsters. They hunt us—stalk us…they are desperate to destroy us.
But I have a reason to fight the darkness and everything in it. A small glimpse of light that lives within my golden-haired daughter, Lilly. She is my strength. She is my everything.
Every life is an untold story, each scene unfolding until the final act. But our ending has yet to be written, and I will continue to protect us, until I can not.

**Received ARC in exchange for an honest review**
"When the world went to hell, the planet rocked, reeling from the realization that such evil could live among us in plain sight."
Out of the Dark is about a woman and a child that are trying to survive in a world filled with monsters. There is no food, no water and no protection. They only have each other and try to live to see another day. They survived because they had each other. They were each other's light! Out of the Dark is not your typical/traditional zombie/post-apocalyptic story, it is so much more and Claire has come up with a very original story. The monsters in this book are very refreshing to read about.
"Every breath feels like it is poison, the stench of the monsters hanging thick in the air, so much so that I can taste them in my mouth, on my tongue, bitter and vile and evil."
I finished this book at 4:30AM, because I just couldn't put it down. This book wrecked me and turned me into a zombie because only one thing was on my mind and that was finishing this book. I was hooked and I couldn't do anything else. This book is everything! I was on one crazy emotional rollercoaster that I couldn't get enough of. It was like I was teleported into the book and I was one of the main characters. All the emotions the characters were feeling were REAL to me. I was on the edge of my chair from beginning to end. It was like I was dangling over a cliff and could fall any time.
"Waiting, always waiting for them to fins us, to catch us, to kill us. Waiting. It's a cruel torture."
This book was heartbreaking, full of action, emotional and scary. This book was PERFECT. I needed so many tissues because I was crying my eyes out. Claire is a writing genius and knows perfectly how to touch the reader. I loved every word in this book and it has become one of my favorites this year. The ending was fitting and I am dying to know what will happen next. I NEED book #2 ASAP.
