A Darker Moon's setting is in London where the main character is Abe Finchley. He is a beaten down man, orphaned with no family that he knows of. Abe was left on the steps of a Synagogue with nothing but a picture of his mother. As a child, Abe had nightmares and walked in his sleep. He just can't let go of his past. A Darker Moon is rising in the sky.
Abe has dreamed about a special woman all his life. The problem is, there is a fine line between dreams and nightmares. When Abe finally finds Eve, he finds the love and the warmth of his heart. Sad to say, he not only finds love, but a family with a dark, violent past. It has spanned for generations.
He falls deeply in love with Eve. They have a connection with each other, but Abe can't seem to put together what or why that connection is. How far has Eve led him astray? As they try to solve this mystery, another twist takes place. He finds out someone wants to kill him, but who and why? The moon is becoming A Darker Moon. Abe is slowly finding out he has a past even worse than could be imagined.
Abe will have to make an extremely hard choice, a choice that could save or destroy the world. Will the world be forever under A Darker Moon? You can't make up your mind if you feel sorry for Abe for all he's gone through or do you find it hard to connect with him because he's putting himself in some of the situations he's been in and is going through. Right under A Darker Moon.
A Darker Moon is a dark, mythical fantasy of those places around the corner that even with a light, you're afraid to go around. The plot is more thought provoking than scary. It's hard to follow where the story is going. Just about the time you think you have it figured out, the plot twists and turns.
The cover on the book is just great. An owl perching on a rail with two, big eyes that look like moons.
