    Description

    Everyone's afraid of the dark. Now, there's a reason to be.

    Lux and his younger brother, Lunam, enjoy the full freedom of the simple life and all the childhood adventures offered by growing up in a small village in a picturesque glen. Life is tranquil, peaceful, and just about perfect - except for one formidable fact....

    Every day is followed by night. And, with the night, comes the DARKNESS.

    Slowly shrouding the valley and relentlessly seeping into every nook and cranny on its nightly rampage, the darkness returns to feast on its victims. No man, woman, child, animal - or even insect - is safe. The darkness consumes all; the darkness' hunger is never satisfied.

    When the sun falls from the sky, the villagers, young and old, must take to arms, guarding their homes, loved ones, and livestock with every ray of light they can muster. Even young Lux and Lunam are well soldiered in their responsibilities to safeguard themselves and their parents during the nightly vigil, the nightly fight to live to see another day.

    It's always been this way - the truths and ritual passed down from generation to generation since ancient times. No one dares question why. Nothing can change the frightening fact of the lives of the villagers or emancipate them from their singular foe - nothing except a child's imagination and a curiosity as immutable as the darkness' own appetite.

    There's just one truth guiding every man, woman, and child to strive to see another day: "Darkness Comes but Once a Night".

    Fantasy, wonder, triumph!

    I am a fantasy fan, and apparently, Justine gets me. When I read "One Apart", I thought it was a bit long and not all of it appealed to my senses. This short story, however, hit all the right buttons and made me wish for more. The two boys, Lunem and Lux, are brothers who share a link not only in name (both refer to light), but their family bond is strong, and their parents give them love and praise enough to share. This was a delightful story, and I would love to see it animated, perhaps by the artists who did The Little Prince...

    The Darkness

    The book is about young boys as they experience life in their small beautiful village. Lux and his younger brother, Lunam are great characters. The reader enjoys following them as they go on with their humble uncomplicated life and the people they interact with. When night falls and darkness comes, things change. A lot happens in the village, both good and eccentric. Justine Avery’s story is short, sweet and entertaining. Her depiction of the village life is charming and delightful. The characters are exciting to follow as they are diverse and have unique roles.

    Fresh Horror Story

    A new horror tale where two brothers attempt to protect their village from darkness. Very original, rounded characters and a scary premise.

    Really good short horror novel

    The novel is short and really well written. I really enjoyed the characters that are in this book.
