Goodreads Synopsis

Since mankind began, civilizations have always fallen: the Romans, the Greeks, the Aztecs…Now it’s our turn. Huge earthquakes rock the world. Cities are destroyed. But something even more awful is happening. An ancient evil has been unleashed, turning everday people into hunters, killers, crazies.

Mason's mother is dying after a terrible car accident. As he endures a last vigil at her hospital bed, his school is bombed and razed to the ground, and everyone he knows is killed. Aries survives an earthquake aftershock on a bus, and thinks the worst is over when a mysterious stranger pulls her out of the wreckage, but she’s about to discover a world changed forever. 
Clementine, the only survivor of an emergency town hall meeting that descends into murderous chaos, is on the run from savage strangers who used to be her friends and neighbors. And Michael witnesses a brutal road rage incident that is made much worse by the arrival of the police--who gun down the guilty party and then turn on the bystanding crowd.
Where do you go for justice when even the lawmakers have turned bad? These four teens are on the same road in a world gone mad. Struggling to survive, clinging on to love and meaning wherever it can be found, this is a journey into the heart of darkness – but also a journey to find each other and a place of safety

My Thoughts:
I was not expecting Dark Inside to be well as dark as it was. Such an amazing novel  that has left me wondering what would humanity be like if something like this were to actually happen.
A novel that has left me with questions about humanity and questions to whether we would really loose ourselves or if we would be able to keep it together if our world as we new it literally came to an end.

I was extremely thrilled with Dark Inside. I thought this novel was absolutely amazing. The character’s where great. I loved how Jeyn wrote the story from all the different point of views of the characters. I loved how she was not afraid to hold back with her words.

To me it seems like Jeyn had a clear picture in her mind of what the world would be like if all of  the human race lost their humanity and civilization came crumbling down around us and I felt like I was in her world with her. Her descriptions were amazing and the world she created had me in fear.

I am absolutely thrilled with Dark Inside and I think that Jeyn did such a wonderful job with this novel. A book that I am thrilled that i was able to read and I am so glad I did.  Dark Inside is a novel that I know I will go back to and re read.
