Book Description

The follow-up to #1 NYT bestseller Kelley Armstrong’s acclaimed City of the Lost, Rockton town detective Casey Duncan makes a terrible—and dangerous—discovery in the woods outside of town.

When experienced homicide detective Casey Duncan first moved to the secret town of Rockton, she expected a safe haven for people like her, people running from their past misdeeds and past lives. She knew living in Rockton meant living off-the-grid completely: no cell phones, no Internet, no mail, very little electricity, and no way of getting in or out without the town council’s approval. What she didn’t expect is that Rockton comes with its own set of secrets and dangers.

Now, in A Darkness Absolute, Casey and her fellow Rockton sheriff’s deputy Will chase a cabin-fevered resident into the woods, where they are stranded in a blizzard. Taking shelter in a cave, they discover a former resident who’s been held captive for over a year. When the bodies of two other women turn up, Casey and her colleagues must find out if it’s an outsider behind the killings or if the answer is more complicated than that...before another victim goes missing.

Casey Duncan returns in another heart-racing thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong.

About the Author

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers' dismay. All efforts to make her produce "normal" stories failed.

Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She's the author of the NYT-bestselling "Women of the Otherworld" paranormal suspense series and "Darkest Powers" young adult urban fantasy trilogy, as well as the Nadia Stafford crime series. Armstrong lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets.

My Review

 A Darkness Absolute is the second book in the Casey Duncan by Kelley Armstrong. I love this series. I read City of the Lost then immediately followed with A Darkness Absolute which takes place about four months later.

Casey is still in the isolated and secret village of Rockton in Canada's Yukon Territory. She is the town's detective and is in love with the town's sheriff. Despite being small in size, Rockton is filled with danger and misdeeds. Everyone there is only there for two to five years and many take on a much different persona than what they were in their previous lives. And the secretive and bizarre council that governs Rockton is quite menacing to me. 

I would definitely suggest reading City of the Lost first then follow with A Darkness Absolute which is a great follow up. Please keep them coming Kelley Armstrong! Great book and great series.

Highly recommend!
