New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards continues her penchant for "fantastic storytelling" (RT Book Reviews) with this heart-pumping and nail-biting tale of a brilliant ornithologist trapped on the remote Attu Island in Alaska, fighting for her life—and that of a handsome stranger—before they're swallowed up in darkness forever.Ornithologist Dr. Gina Solomon, PhD, can't believe her good fortune when she's picked as one of a small group of Stanford University scientists lucky enough to be allowed to conduct research on Attu Island, Alaska. But a dream come true soon turns into a nightmare when she witnesses the horrifying break-up of a small plane. As the pieces rain down around her into the frigid waters of the Bering Sea, Gina heads toward the crash site looking for survivors and discovers James "Cal" Callahan. But when the two realize the plane crash wasn't an accident—and that the individuals responsible are still on the island—will they escape before they're swallowed up in darkness forever? Set against the harsh wilderness of Alaska, Darkness is yet another of Robards's "scintillating romantic thrillers" (Publishers Weekly) featuring the well-paced suspense and twists that has made Robards an icon in the romance genre.

Reading this book I wanted to say, Well, it's enough, we understood, understood, how beautiful and sexually attractive the protagonist is. In the course of the whole narrative is described the increasing sexual tension between the main characters. And with the same descriptions of the magnificent muscular body of the protagonist. This is really funny. It seems that the author has an obsession for this kind of men.
If it were not for an excellent description of the storm and the climatic conditions of the place where the action takes place, then this book it’s not worth reading. Well, also there is some knowledge of surviving skills.

I'm a fan of Karen Robards but I was disappointed with this book. It had a potentially good story line but all the detail was spent on describing the weather instead of the plot. It also beat the reader over the head with how physically attracted Gina was to Cal. Between that and the weather, I felt like I was reading the same thing over and over throughout the story.

This was an OK read. If you want something light and easy to read, this would be it. The story is very predictable. There was a lot of time spent on describing the weather conditions and I found myself skimming over some of it. Attu in Alaska was apparently controlled by the Japanese in World War II until the Americans took it. So there was a little history thrown in.
