About the Book
Jayce’s twenty-year-old daughter Emory is missing, lost in a dark, dangerous realm called Shadow that exists alongside our own reality. An enigmatic woman named Nicola guides Jayce through this bizarre world, and together they search for Emory, facing deadly dog-eaters, crazed killers, homicidal sex toys, and – worst of all – a monstrous being known as the Harvest Man. But no matter what Shadow throws at him, Jayce won’t stop. He’ll do whatever it takes to find his daughter, even if it means becoming a worse monster than the things that are trying to stop him.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the NetGalley <https://www.netgalley.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
Just when Jayce thinks things can’t get any worse, they do. He’s divorced, no social life and now his daughter Emory is missing. How could this have happened.
Jayce enlists the help of a sexy mysterious stranger,”Nicola.” But is there more to Nicola than meets the eyes. Who is this “Harvest Man,” one of the guards whispered about.
I have to say, if you have a sensitive stomach, then “Mouth of the Dark,” is not for you. This book is truly what sensitive people’s nightmares are made of. Mouth of the Sark is filled with non-stop action, some romance and true horror. I am kind of sad how the ending turned out, but all-in-all it was a great book. I would recommend this book to mature audiences 16 & up.
