Patrick Carr Launches a New Suspense-filled Fantasy Epic

When one man is brutally murdered and the priest he works for mortally wounded on the streets of Bunard, Willet Dura is called to investigate. Yet the clues to the crime lead to contradictions and questions without answers. As Willet begins to question the dying priest, the man pulls Willet close and screams in a foreign tongue. Then he dies without another word.

Willet returns to the city, no closer to answers than before, but his senses are skewed. People he touches appear to have a subtle shift, a twist seen at the edge of his vision, and it's as though he can see their deepest thoughts. In a world divided between haves and have-nots, gifted and common, Willet soon learns he's been passed the rarest gift of all: a gift that's not supposed to exist.

Now Willet must pursue the murderer still on the loose in Bunard even as he's pulled into a much more dangerous and epic conflict that threatens not only his city, but his entire world--a conflict that will force him to come to terms with his own tortured past if he wants to survive.

Intriguing concept
4 stars By becinchina, Jan 24 2018
Having read the prequel, the beginning felt familiar, but gradually the unfolding story drew me in. I appreciated the character of Bolt best, and hope there might be more insight into Gael given in later books.

Amazing adventure
5 stars By Emily , Feb 18 2017
The Shock of Night is the first book in the Darkwater Saga. When a dying man grabs Willet Dura by the head and shouts something at him in a different language, everything changes for him. I was sitting at the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading this book. Its mystery, adventure and romance are intriguing. I couldn't put it down. Great for teenagers and adults. Don't miss this amazing adventure.
