Moments after several huge earthquakes shake every continent on Earth, something strange starts happening to people.

Michael can only watch in horror as an incidence of road rage so extreme it ends in two deaths unfolds before his eyes.

Clementine finds herself being hunted through the small town she has lived in all her life, by people she has known since childhood.

And Mason is attacked with a baseball bat by a random stranger. An inner rage has been released and some people cannot fight it. For those who can, life becomes an ongoing battle to survive - at any cost! Since mankind began, civilizations have fallen - now it's our turn!

Reviews

“A totally thrilling page-turner, Dark Inside is an intense, exciting slice of apocalyptic awesomeness from debut author Jeyn Roberts. Undoubtedly one of the best books I’ve read this year..” - Daisy Chain Book Reviews Blog


“Truly frightening, it's been a while since I've been scared to read ahead! I loved this, it has a real, timeless, eerie feel that great horror classics share and at the same time the style and ideas feel fresh and relevant to current pop culture.” Goodreads

“This book was incredible, I couldn't put it down. It is fast-paced and the character voices are very real and easy to empathise with. It is an interesting mash-up of dystopian and zombie literature, and is both creepy and touching.” Goodreads
