DARKER Viral Kindle Zariah Smith never thought much of herself With her loathsomely dark skin, unruly kinky hair, and naivete about herself and the world around her, she has become the subject of ire for many of her different skinned peers, a punching bag for their own sorrows Thinking she might escape the shame her mother thrust upon her for being so tar baby black, she goes to college, aZariah Smith never thought much of herself With her loathsomely dark skin, unruly kinky hair, and naivete about herself and the world around her, she has become the subject of ire for many of her different skinned peers, a punching bag for their own sorrows Thinking she might escape the shame her mother thrust upon her for being so tar baby black, she goes to college, a place where youths find themselves and futures are discovered But when the disdain for her color continues, she finds comfort within a most unexpected place the darkness Blessed or cursed with an unenviable power, it is within the darkness that she finds strength, and others face their darkest fears.An exploration of modern day race relations, college hazing and coming of age when everyone around you is so unabashedly different, Michael Stephenson welcomes horror fans on a sometimes gruesome path to terror A homage to Stephen King s first professionally published book Carrie, DARKER invites the reader to follow Zariah on her odyssey to assimilate in a world that seems only to fear what is different, fear what is misunderstood, fear the darkness.. Michael Stephenson has been writing for over a decade A lover of horror, his fiction stretches over a plethora of genres including romance, erotica, thrillers, action adventure, horror, urban, legal, and political Sticking mainly to fiction, he does enjoy reading a great amount of non fiction as well An avid lover of films, he also is a screenwriter He believes that a good story engulfs the reader or viewer in the world of the characters A well told story can be powerful in effecting a person s mood or life For this reason, he seeks to tell a myriad of captivating stories about the things that interest him.. The best Books DARKER I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was written fairly well and it brought attention to issues such as modern-day race relations, bullying, and riots. As Michael Stephenson mentions, Darker is definitely very similar to Stephen King’s book Carrie; even down to the emphasis on the girls monthly as a point of the high school teasing. Zariah is picked on at school and has a crazy mother, just like in Carrie. There are so many other similarities and I won't mention them all, but overall, the story lines are the same. I can appreciate the desire to explore the issues the story hits on, but I wish it would have been done in a way that the story would have been more original.Reviewed for Jo&IsaLoveBooks Blog
