You will find Dark to be in the fantasy world. Which will also have a mystery, as well as much needed answers.

Dun, Padg, and Tali set out to get answers. They travel through vents and pipes. Them being chosen by the fellow Bridge Folk. Their adventure will have them traveling many miles. In search of answers. I should mention, the boys are actually blind and therefore traveling in the Dark. They do however use their other senses to get them by. Their adventure will be interesting, but no spoilers from me. You will just need to read it.

This may not be my genre. But I truly enjoyed reading Paul L. Arvidson book. This is a real page turner, one you won’t be able to put down. His character’s are perfect for this fantasy story. While parts of the story threw me. I still enjoyed the mysteries told by Paul L. Arvidson. I will be curious to see where he goes from here.

Dark (The Dark Trilogy Book 1)Dark by Paul L. Arvidson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dark is the first book in The Dark Trilogy series.

This story is a fantastic sci-fi fantasy adventure. I love the way the characters are written and how unique the setting is. One of the interesting things in this story is the way that the characters experience everything without using the sense of sight. I enjoyed how the author used the sense of proprioception as one of the main avenues for the characters exploring their world. It isn’t something a lot of books use.

Dark catches your interest from the beginning and holds it with unanswered questions that only have hints dropped throughout. It is fun to speculate what is going to happen based on the clues.

Definitely looking forward to reading the next book!!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dark by Paul L. Arvidson is the first book in the Dark Trilogy. This is such a unique story that had me captivated from the moment I read the description.
I didn’t know what to expect from this story really when I went in to it. I was completely unfamiliar with this author but excited to see what the book had in store. While I did have a few minor issues with it I have to say I really enjoyed the story overall. The premise of it was so original and like nothing I have ever read before.
I also really felt drawn to Dun. There was something about the way he was written that I enjoyed. I wanted him to discover everything he could and to try and make sense of his dreams. His companions were also likeable and worked well with his character.
This is a strong start to a new series and I cannot wait to see what the next instalment brings.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by this author, I enjoyed it from beginning to end. It is a science fiction, fantasy story that is well written and engaging. It has adventure along with sitting on the edge of your seat action. Dun and his two friends set out on a journey through a labyrinth. The farther they go the deeper the danger seems to be and going home is not an option. Are people who they say they are? Will the unknown turn out to be Dun’s survival or his end? I highly recommend this book.

Dark (The Dark Trilogy Book 1)by Paul L Arvidson

Dark is an interesting and creative novel. There are amazing characters and scenery. This book is very different from the books I have read before. The setting had me thrown for a bit because instead of ever6being described in a visual sense, the author utilized the other senses to describe it. The world is in complete darkness for these individuals. To me, that was fascinating. Dunn, Padg, Tali, and Myrch were all interesting and different characters. I enjoyed following them a long their journey and loved that each had their own unique talents. Each played a key role to the groups survival and task. Being that this is book 1 of this series, I look forward to the other books. I highly recommend this unique book.

5 out of 5 stars

The story Dark (The Dark Series # 1) by Paul L. Arvidson is an amazing fantasy book that I loved reading. It hooks you in from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the final page. It is a story that has action, adventure, mystery, and danger. I loved reading about the character of Dun. He wants to find the answers to the terrifying dreams that he has been having. He finds himself on a journey with an old friend, a new friend, and the mysterious Myrch. Myrch is a character that not a lot is known about. His actions cause questions to be raised about him. What does the future hold for Dun? Will he find the answers that he seeks? Read this book to find out. The author has done an amazing job in world building. The characters that Dun and the others meet are interesting and intriguing to read about. Both the story and the characters come alive and I felt like I was right there with them every step of the way. There is intense dialogue. Don’t miss out on a story that had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. It is a book I would highly recommend reading.
