Thirteen contemporary stories set in the paranormal or world of extraordinary events.

Each is created with much love and hope that life's surprises are always enlightening and encouraging...not just defeating. Never fear the darkness, for there is much to see in the shadows of our minds, the darkness of our days.

    In this powerful and evocative collection of dark short stories by Angel Cox, readers follow a large cast of well thought-out characters and story lines. Of the thirteen tales, I think "Toward the Light" is my favorite, with "A Rainy Day" and "The Beginning of Prejudice" coming in as a close second and third. This collection is a strong one, using child narrators, women, men; the destitute and the forlorn, with each touching on a different human condition and asking the reader to think and align the message to their own life. Two of my favorite lines from the collection are: "Man can never go backward, but his past can light the way for his journey." (Toward the Light) and: "They had set forth to rid their town of evil and managed to rid it of pleasure as well." There were a few stories in the collection that had rough, abrupt cliffhanger endings; endings that I feel are particularly hard to pull off, and there was another story I... More > wasn't altogether fond of, but overall this collection is a wonderful debut from a writer who has a lot of talent with characterization and setting. Each story was separate and distinct, and as a whole, "A Day in the Dark" was a wholly pleasurable read.< Less

    Angel Cox is a wonderful storyteller and this collection is written with heart. The characters are well written and could easily be your neighbours, friends or family. The stories range from the truly heartbreaking, ‘Death of an Angel’ and ‘Life in a Fish Bowl’ to the thought provoking, ‘Blood in their Eyes’ and ‘Stolen Identity’. There are classic themes such as those in ‘The New Highway’ and more original thoughts as in, ‘Traffic’. This collection of dark fiction is provocative and entertaining, giving both despair and hope. I think 'A Day in the Dark' is a taste of great things to come from this author. I can’t wait to read more of her work.

    I am impressed with the quality, imagination and messages represented in this wonderful collection of provocative stories. I hope to see MORE of Angel's works in the future and highly recommend A Day in the Dark to readers of all interests. It is MORE than a paranormal experience, she brings LIFE to life with unique and special characters who feel real.
