Since mankind began, civilizations have always fallen: the Romans, the Greeks, the Aztecs...Now it's our turn. Huge earthquakes rock the world. Cities are destroyed. But something even more awful is happening. An ancient evil has been unleashed, turning everday people into hunters, killers, crazies.

Mason's mother is dying after a terrible car accident. As he endures a last vigil at her hospital bed, his school is bombed and razed to the ground, and everyone he knows is killed. Aries survives an earthquake aftershock on a bus, and thinks the worst is over when a mysterious stranger pulls her out of the wreckage, but she's about to discover a world changed forever. Clementine, the only survivor of an emergency town hall meeting that descends into murderous chaos, is on the run from savage strangers who used to be her friends and neighbors. And Michael witnesses a brutal road rage incident that is made much worse by the arrival of the police--who gun down the guilty party and then turn on the bystanding crowd.

Where do you go for justice when even the lawmakers have turned bad? These four teens are on the same road in a world gone mad. Struggling to survive, clinging on to love and meaning wherever it can be found, this is a journey into the heart of darkness - but also a journey to find each other and a place of safety.

This book was a quick read for me, it was pretty good...will definitely be reading the next one to find out what happens..

dark inside was really well written, but it did get slightly confusing with the different characters, but that made it interesting, i would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants a suspenseful horror or if they want something with zombies in it. even thou (spoiler alert?) there not actually zombies unless you consider evil cannibalistic people who seem to have lost their minds zombies. i would give this a...8/10 and im planning on reading the next book (rage within i think?) and im hoping to find/read more about the nothing. ( i loved reading the nothing parts, they sent chills up and done my spine. (sorry if the last bit didn't make sense, if you haven't read it, but you should read it and then you'll understand

I LOVED this book! It's so suspenseful that I couldn't stop thinking about it until a while after I had finished reading it. It's scary, humorous, dramatic and believable. SPOILER ALERT! Not all the characters are flawless heroes,making it feel truly real. Read it, read it, read it!

Book gets you hooked. Very suspenseful, and good describing.
What I'm, wondering is why don't they have rage within yet? The second book to this, and obviously there is going to be a third book, due to the ending of the second. I bought rage within in book stores in January, so you think epl would at least have it on order. Both are great books.
