Darkness is Awakening

A man wakes in a coffin with no memory of the past. The only clue to his identity is a note: “Avoid the sunlight and don’t touch anybody.” Just hours later, he’s questioning more than just his name as he stands over the charred corpse, dead with just a touch. Hunted by the FBI, and haunted by the evil of his forgotten past, he must learn to control the darkness within himself before he destroys the child who may be his only hope to remember. Little does he know the secrets locked in his head hold the key to an conspiracy stretching back thousands of years across two worlds. The fate of past, present, and future collide as the hours of AVAILABLE DARKNESS tick away while humanity is threatened by a force stronger than the world has ever seen.

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME, by Mark Haddon

Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow.

This improbable story of Christopher’s quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual, and widely heralded novels in recent years.
