    1. In Left to Darkness, Craig Saunders gives us his twisted vision of the pre, present and post-apocalyptic dream, or nightmare in this case. Where the world changes in the aftermath of a meteor strike and a whole bunch of characters from very different walks of life, fight to survive.Set around London, the gridlocked M25, nice to know some things never change, even at the end of days, when the shit most definitely hits the fan and everything else in the vicinity, you still can’t get off that blo [...]

    2. Craig Saunders takes us into the heart of an apocalyptic story unlike any other. The first thing I'd like to note is that this is the first in a series (I've since learned), so the sudden ending that didn't tie up anything now makes more sense to me.Our three main characters (possibly the last SANE people left after meteorites hit London) are Dawn Graves, a very pregnant woman; Paul Deacon, a cop who lost his eyesight due to the cannibalism that ensues after the meteorites hit; and Frank Liebowi [...]

    3. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.A meteor strikes earth leaving only a portion of survivors, a bloodthirsty cult now rules the cities and only a handful of people appear to be unaffected by the bloodlust. Three people find their paths converge as they fight to survive in the new world order. Paul, a policeman; Dawn, pregnant and near her due date and Frank, a ruthless thug who is the key to their survival.I’m not sure what to make of [...]

    4. There was some seriously ker-ker-crazy-ass shit going on in this one including crybaby psychopathic cannibals wearing crowns of glass and barbed wire, Cenobite Terminators named Sid, naked chain smoking vodka drinking saviors and the one that will rise above the ashes of the burning city – The Dead King.I am a big fan of Craig Saunders. Dude can write. A solid storyteller with excellent characterization skills. He creates a post-apocalyptic landscape in “Left to Darkness” with hints of a m [...]

    5. Review copyLeft To Darkness is the third piece I've read by Craig Saunders over the last year. There was one word I used in my prior reviews of both Bloodeye and Masters of Blood and Bone. That word is "strange," and it certainly applies again to his newest book from Darkfuse publishers.Over the last year, I've grown more and more fond of Craig's writing style. Interesting, fully realized characters, make this latest work a very enjoyable read. At first I was a bit disappointed with all of the l [...]

    6. From one of my favorite authors, comes an apocalyptic tale that will make you re-think your end of the world plans. Left to Darkness isn't recycled, doesn't have zombies (exactly), and is one hell of a ride. "In the Kingdom of the Blind, the One-Armed man is King."Frank Liebowicz is a thug who has lost one of his arms. Paul Deacon is a cop who has lost his eyesight. Dawn Graves is a pregnant woman, whose cheating spouse got himself killed in a bathroom stall and the baby is coming. When a series [...]

    7. [This review is based on an advanced copy received from the publisher via NetGalley.]I first became aware of Craig Saunders with the release of another DarkFuse title, Masters of Blood and Bone, in the early part of 2015. For me, that title was an elegantly written, and perfectly crafted, fusion of dark horror, fantasy, and noir. In short, it’s a tough title to beat and sets a rather lofty benchmark for Saunders to reach on subsequent novels. And so, I came into Left to Darkness with a certain [...]

    8. "It’s a dark story but at the same time full of the sort of dark humour that (it looks like to me) Craig Saunders has in all of his books. As well as the bloody and the gory, this book will make you smile and laugh. It will make you boo and cheer. It will make you gag. It will make you hold your breath and it will scare you."See here for the full review:Left To Darkness

    9. Left to Darkness was the fifth book by Craig I have read. This is a apocalyptic tale that was well written, a good cast of characters and had a nice flow. And I just found out that it is the first book in a series called The Oblivion. The story is set in England and what happens after the meteor strike. Some of the main characters are Frank Liebowicz an enforcer, a over weight Detective named Paul Deacon, a pregnant Dawn Graves and a cult leader named James Finley. I don't want to say to much ab [...]

    10. Book Review originally published here: iheartreading/mini-revIf you thought a meteor striking earth was the worst thing that could happen to us, think again. Right after, with only a handful of survivors, a Satanic cult rises. The book was absolutely amazing, showing the depths of deprativity of riots and mass killings that happen after the apocalypse, and the darkest side of humanity. The writing was excellent, and the characters were unique and engaging.

    11. I received a free digital copy of this book from the publishers/author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.When meteors strike the earth, London is left to burn to the ground and a satanic cult begin to reign. But amidst the chaos, a blind policeman, a hitman with one arm and a pregnant women might be the winning result everyone needs.I don’t have a lot to say about this book because event hough I really enjoyed, I’m not 100% sure what exactly happened. The book was very fast-pace [...]

    12. LEFT TO DARKNESS. The title made me think of 'Right at the first star, then straight on till morning'. And that opposite analogy may be apropos. This story was as dark as Peter Pan was light. My next thought on actually starting the book, was "Damn. Is Bruce Willis going to pop in and save the day?"I'm not big on end of the world stories. Stephen King did the ultimate with The Stand; I can't tell you how many times I've read that book. Death by meteor, towering inferno, zombie.n't do much for me [...]

    13. This was a fast paced graphic and gory end of the world tale complete with blood, guts, and cannibalism. The main characters are not your typical hero types but that just served to make the story even better. I was a little surprised by what seemed to be a very abrupt ending, until I realized this book is the first in a series.I received a free copy for review

    14. After the earth is hit by a large meteor, civilisation as we know it is destroyed. Anarchy reins, looting, violence, murder are soon rife, and law and order are no more than words of how the world used to be. Lots of people have also disappeared, the M25 around London is now nothing more than an empty car park. All the people from the cars have disappeared. Where did they go and why are some people still left behind?The story is told through three main characters: Dawn Graves, heavily pregnant a [...]

    15. I heard the first chapter of this book read by the author at FantasyCon (sept 2015) and went straight back to my hotel room to download it. I then waited three weeks until my holiday to relish it.No disappointments at all.Frank the Thug has a dramatic entrance to the story. Paul is the Good Cop who plods along; how these two meet is unexpected and what follows is a fantastic piece of storytelling. Finley, who happens to be Franks Boss, is up to no good as all corporate villain bosses should be. [...]

    16. I have read a few books by Craig Saunders (everything DarkFuse has published), and I really like his writing style - very casual and conversational. This is the start of a story (so be forewarned right up front - there is no resolution here, so if that bothers you, I'd wait on this one until more books are published) about the end of the world via meteor strike. At first I felt like there were too many unrelated story threads rotating too rapidly, but as the story went on, they came together wel [...]

    17. I haven't delved in to much of Craig Saunders massive back catalog, but it is fair to say after his last few offerings from DarkFuse I am a big fan. Left To Darkness continues in that vein. Looking at the plot on the surface it seems like well trodden territory: global apocalypse, and a mysterious evil being walking around tempting the survivors? The Stand and Swan Song, just off the top of my head. It is telling that these similarities didn't even occur to me until I was thinking about what to [...]

    18. There’s a lot going on in Craig Saunders new novel Left To Darkness, a story of the days leading up to and following the apocalypse. Sometimes, in fact, there’s too much going on, with a large cast of characters that forces the narrative to jump around to make sure all of the plot points are covered. The prose is swift and keeps the reader intrigued even though the less interesting characters and the weaker plot points.The book is divided into two parts as far as the general plot goes: the p [...]

    19. “Left to Darkness” eBook was published in 2015 and was written by Craig Saunders (craigrsaunders). Mr. Saunders has more than 30 publications. This is the first in his “The Oblivion” series. I obtained a galley of this novel for review through netgalley. I would categorize this novel as ‘R’ as there are several instances of Violence, Mature Language and Mature Situations. This Science Fiction/Fantasy novel is set in contemporary London, England. A meteor strikes the Earth creating wo [...]

    20. It's the end of the world as we know itThis is the first book in what will be a great series. After a meteor shower hits the Earth, a group of survivors from different walks of life try to piece their lives back together. A policeman, a pregnant woman and a hit man are the main characters, although the regular appearance of a naked man ( who might be the devil ) also provides an interesting plot twist. Craig's prose is smooth and easy to digest. He doesn't bog you down with being over descriptiv [...]

    21. Restricted till August 11Whenever and wherever the end of world occurs, it's not going to be pretty. It's not going to be civil. It is bound to be ugly. Craig Saunders treats us to one possibility: bloody, gory, burning, steaming, deadly; also illusionary, orher-directed, and downright devilish. Author Saunders has a sort of X-Ray vision for the underbelly of humanity. Maybe this is the way the world will end--if not exactly, similarly.

    22. Delightfully disturbingGreat story, and seriously twisted, I love it! There's a lot of seriously disturbing content so if you have a problem with gory, sick, and twisted please don't buy this book and then complain about what you've been warned of going into it. Some excellent comedy too!

    23. A brutally good readFor a full review, please go to examiner/review/left-t and follow me on Twitter @josenher

    24. I'd review it now, but I think I need a vodka, cigarette, and a shower first (and i don't smoke or drink) Crikey Dingoes! Rtc

    25. Strangest book in longtimeViolent, bloody, and I couldn't stop reading. You just keep wondering , WHAT NEXT?? Where does he get these ideas from?
