    I loved it just as I love every other book by Kay Hooper. Having said that, I think it's the first novel in the series that I have to give 4 and not 5 stars. There was a very long build-up and the climax of the story happened within a few pages; it seemed very rushed. The first three q...

    Really exciting until about three quarters of the way through and then it just peters out. The takedown was anticlimactic and the ending just lame and uninformative. Luckily (for me), I like these characters so I will definitely read the next installment. ...

    From the cover: Madness has taken ahold of Prosperity, North Carolina. Residents are killing one another, as if in a dream, and waking up with no memory of the monstrous acts they've committed--or why. As the death toll climbs, the local sheriff's department is further rocked by a murd...

    This one started out strong for me. I liked seeing the "call" that everyone got and how it seemed like it was going to be this epic battle of good vs evil. As all of Bishop's crew showed up in Prosper they could tell something was wrong, it was as they saw what was happening that they ...

    3,5 stars Love this series! The potential of this book was tremendous but it didn?t quite reach it. The ending was so abrupt and anti-climatic, I thought there were pages missing :( ...

    SO bad. Repetitive, poorly written and edited, lame. 80% of the book was set-up, way too much time spent with character "development," yet the characters were all still super one-dimensional. The big climax/solution was over in two pages. A major plot point (all the characters were pul...

    Very creepy addition to the series. A psychic blast was sent out and received by small group of psychics to come to Prosperity, North Carolina. Something evil is going on there and only this group can stop it. Noah Bishop and his wife felt the blast but were not part of the invitat...

    After seeing Hollis and Reese come together as a romance pair as well as FBI Special Crimes partnering, I was tickled to see them back and fabulous as ever against a resident evil. They are working with an unconventional team this time around and I enjoyed meeting all these new players...

    Oh my, Kay Hooper makes the most extraordinary things seem completely believable and almost ordinary. The SCU and Haven and all the players have lives and stories that keep drawing me. The evil in this story was a bit different but no less chilling. ...

    Kay Hooper's Hold Back The Dark is number 18 in the Bishop/SCU series and it was wonderful until it wasn't. I'm a fan of Kay Hooper and have read all of her books and the Bishop Novels are seriously my favorites. Kay Hooper lives in North Carolina as do I and many of her books are loca...

    Kinda disappointing for me. I usually enjoy Kay Hooper's SCU books much more than this one. As other reviewers have pointed out, not much happened for most of the book.... So why write a book? Other popular authors seem to be writing and releasing more and more "short stories" or "n...

    I will start off by saying this book is 4. stars for me, and it could easily have been five. This is a long running series that I love, because it is always good versus evil, by using a special unit in the FB I, under Noah Bishop. These men, and women have special abilities. They all h...

    I ended up very dissappointed in this book -- synopsis sounded interesting, beginning was engaging, it seemed that the "call" will bring together big battle between Good and Evil but turned out that all those characters with "special gifts" gather up... for basically nothing. All those...

    Several consecutive pages of Miranda and Bishop. Finally. Not enough to satisfy my personal desire, but it's better than the essential nothing in series entries since the horrific ending of Blood Ties. Hold Back the Dark continues the SCU's mission to protect humankind from unspeakable...

    The story was really engaging but it all fell apart in the ending. The story?s resolution was abrupt and rush. The book seemed to be building to a dramatic finish but it just fizzled in the end. ...

    I?ve been a fan of the series for awhile. Unfortunately this one felt forced, it read dry almost like a script. The characters were flat and the extended conversations a bit painful and then it just ends. There was a huge buildup to this major end of the world as we know it activity ...

    FINAL DECISION: I ended up tremendously disappointed in this book which began as an amazing story with a whole bunch of characters I was interested in, but ended up being resolved (mostly offscreen) in the space of only a couple of pages. In fact, the book felt like a half book with th...

    Do Not Read Alone At Night Kay Hooper has a way of drawing you so far into her story world that it is hard to tell real from fiction. And Hold Back the Dark does not disappoint, a true escape from reality. In true Hooper style, this book is full of edge of your seat suspense, as wel...

    Edit: This classless crone attempted to come for me on Twitter. Condescending, rude, immature. A whole ass, grown ass woman acting an ass. My respect dropped faster than the quality of her writing. Sub par, underwhelming, white as fuck. I grew up on these books, read them for actua...
