I got this as a gift for my dad because he used to have a copy and loved it but has since lost it. I was very disappointed though when I received this book and the last 20 or so pages were falling out. The binding looked like they had bound the book and then realized that they forgot the last pages so just tucked them in at the last minute (the way the binding of a textbook looks if you keep extra papers inside the front cover for a long time). I didn't have time to get a replacement so I ended up giving it to him anyway and he managed to use his dad skills and glue the pages in himself.

I ordered this for my son. He's ten. I don't recommend this book for children or adults. The writing style is dry and uninspired. I tried to sell my copy on eBay. No luck thus far.

Charlie Black is 14 years old, into comic books and wants to be a filmmaker - a regular geeky kid. He has two friends, meathead Budd, and Nell, the college kid working at the local comic book store. Things become weird and very bloody in this small Louisiana town when kids start getting attacked by a pack of large black dogs with glowing red eyes. The dogs seem focussed and well-organised - is the pack being controlled by someone in town?
The appearance of the dogs coincides with the arrival of a new teacher at Charlie's school, the beautiful Miss Barbara Nielsen. Charlie is drawn to Miss Nielsen, is it lust or something else? As the school bullies get picked off one-by-one in gruesome, tightly-written detail, Nell becomes suspicious about the captivating Miss Nielson. Is Nell jealous of Charlie's interest in another woman, or is there a basis for the weird vibe she claims to get from the gorgeous teacher? Through the effective use of multiple points of view, the reader is allowed illuminating glimpses into the characters' heads, but still the suspense slowly builds, as does the pile of dismembered bodies.
Violence and sexual energy drive When Darkness Falls. The dog attacks are described with full flesh-tearing force while the all-consuming sex drives of the school kids are lasciviously explored. The themes of horror mysticism - premonition dreams, hellhounds, Satanic cults - never overwhelm the coming of age story at its heart, and the authentic depiction of what it is to be a teenager. This novel has an honest approach to adolescence, and the violence and sexual urges that come with it. As the tension mounts, the sexual tension heightens - the two elements matching each other and barrelling toward the climax.
There is a terrific level of detail in the characters' daily life and Sidney Williams is clearly drawing heavily (and effectively) from an 80s childhood. This focus on the minutiae of teenage life ups the fear factor: John Teesman (threw volleyballs at Charlie's head) unlacing his shoe to ease his sprained ankle, looks up to see dogs approaching ... Lewis Laborde (whipped Charlie with a belt) waiting to hook up with his girlfriend in the pavilion of the town park, sees the slavering dogs, tries to climb the pavilion ... The strong action scenes evoke dread, fear and a gruesome satisfaction. When Charlie's mother is attacked, the stakes get even higher.
Particularly in the first half of the book, building the tension is taken too far, becoming repetition and over-emphasis, dulling the pace somewhat. As Nell says, `Sometimes I restate the obvious for effect.' A little more editing and tightening would have made for a slightly better story and eliminated some typos. But the energy and well-developed concept make up for lapses into cliché or pedestrian writing.
When Darkness Falls surges forward, powered by male adolescent sexuality, gory violence, a superb horror concept and engaging characters. It wasn't too hard to guess the twist, but I the accelerating pace was rolling along and I didn't care. And I did not expect the ending. The last few paragraphs left me wondering, which I think is a good thing. When Darkness Falls is a fun read with some depth, using the horror genre to highlight timeless adolescent issues.
Recommended for 14 and up - especially boys.

This book reads like an advertisement for the author's first book and her tours. Repeatedly, the author says that she covered this story in her first book, but she's just going to mention it here. And she repeatedly mentions what happened during her tours. There is not adequate coverage of the really famous San Antonio hauntings - in fact, I know more about some of these hauntings than the author tells, and I only lived in San Antonio for 9 months. I'm sorry I wasted my money buying this book!
I not only have read this book but have also had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Williams and hearing her speak at a luncheon, if you have never had the pleasure, let me assure you she can keep you enthralled and on the edge of your seat with her stories and mannerisms. She is a wonderful story teller and I highly recommend that you read her book. I just wish her tour schedule of downtown San Antonio was more publicized so that i could get tickets.
