Review of “Rend the Dark” by Mark Gelineau and Joe King



The great Ruins are gone. The titans. The behemoths. All banished to the Dark and nearly forgotten. But the cunning ones, the patient ones remain. They hide not in the cracks of the earth or in the shadows of the world. But inside us. Wearing our skin. Waiting. Watching.

Once haunted by visions of the world beyond, Ferran now wields that power to hunt the very monsters that he once feared. He is not alone. Others bear the same terrible burden. But Hunter or hunted, it makes no difference. Eventually, everything returns to the Dark.


This is the second addition to the An Echo of the Ascended seriesRend the Dark revolved around a different character than the first book, but they are all interwoven together so I would recommend reading them in order.

The entire series consists of novellas slightly under 100 pages. However, don’t be fooled by the size of the book as there are many fantastic parts to the books that make them worthwhile! Once again, my review will be rather vague as I do not want to spoil anything for you all.

  • There is a lot of character development.
  • It is action packed!
  • This book definitely creeped me out on several occasions and that’s a hard task for me since I watch so many scary movies and read so many scary books that I’ve grown mostly desensitized to it all.
  • I found Rend the Dark to be hard to put down as I was immediately intrigued by Ferran’s character from the very beginning!

Final verdict: 5 stars!!
