College freshman Parker Osborne realized maintaining his grade point average was the least of his worries when the majority of Earth’s inhabitants have been infected from a biological terrorist attack. As it happens, Parker also realizes that his perceived academic arch enemy Adam Hawkins is not an enemy, but Parker’s savior.  

Kick at the Darkness is an amusing thriller combined with a touch of romance. The setting is a motorcycle road trip from California to Cape Cod. There are a number of creeper attack scenes in addition to a few fights with virus free human predators. Envision traveling across the country in a world thrown into total chaos with very little food, no phone service and no electric power. Finding a safe place to sleep and shower was a luxury for Parker and Adam.

The characters are creditable. Parker comes from a privileged family; he is book smart but lacks the logical thinking needed in emergency situations. Parker has an irritating personality of debating almost every decision Adam makes regarding their safety. Nevertheless, Parker is strongly attracted to Adam.

Adam is a werewolf in hiding with the natural survival instincts of an alpha wolf. Because he was already secretly attracted to Parker, their chance meeting in the mist of chaos allowed Adam to do everything he could to protect Parker, as well as take him to Parker’s family home in Cape Cod.

Kick at the Darkness is an impressive as well as an enjoyable saga. Most of the storyline is heart pounding skirmishes; however there are a few scenes of incredibly sensual intimacy.
