Book Review: Primacy of Darkness

Title: Primacy of Darkness (Brooklyn Shadows #3)

Author: Brock Deskins

Narrator: Brock Deskins



Jack the Ripper, sadistic madman of old London, once thought long dead, has returned to New York in an effort to quench his thirst for blood and mayhem. When the city’s vampire enclave finds itself insufficient to deal with a madman of Jack’s caliber, Vincent, the enclave head, enlists Leo Malone to put the maniac down before he reveals the existence of vampires as Jack throws the city into the throes of chaos and terror. Leo soon finds that Jack is not the only monster with which he must contend. A ghost from his past has also seemingly crawled from its grave and seeks to put an end to him and the rest of his kind.

My Review

4/5 Stars

As someone who hasn’t read the first two books, I was a little confused in the beginning of the book, but the author’s smooth style ensured that didn’t last long. Pretty soon I was caught up in Leo’s world as he fights to battle a haunting past. Not only that. There’s a serial killer who’s haunting New York also demanding his attention.

Plenty of action and suspense. I loved that most of the characters were full and rounded. Leo especially. I also found the author’s take on vampires to be particularly interesting.

Narration was an experience. I always love to hear an author narrate their own story to see what kind of personality they offer the characters, and this author’s telling didn’t disappoint.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
