Trace’s job has always revolved around death. Trace is a Watcher, a position created assist to the undead to their final resting place without alerting humans of the vampire race. Whether his job is to witness the death of a fellow vampire or deal it, Trace has learned that being a Grim Reaper isn’t what he thought it would be. After years of killing, he’s ready for a new job, a new life, or to just disappear. When Bessina becomes his new target after she witnesses the death of fellow vampires Sam and Hope, Trace is ready to eliminate her—until a strange course of events turns the tables and has Trace protecting Bessina from his boss and running for his life.
Running is the dark is not a mere vampire story. More than that it is the story of Trace and Bessina: the different dimensions of their life. Their relation develops from a predator- prey relation to a protector-protected relation.
The story line is concise and converged. The characters are developed through the story. The conglomeration of the vampires and nation is a fresh treatment.
Author has kept the dialogues and emotions,in a subtle manner. Narrative style is impressive. I have not read many vampire stories. Hence, I would not be able to do a comparative analysis. Nevertheless, I feel that the book will entertain the vampire story lovers and fantasy lovers in general.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book as a complimentary copy in exchange for a honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
