If the lights go out forever, can love survive?

When a group of women from different walks of life are brought together by fate during the end of the world as they know it, each must find a way to survive against the odds as well as learn to rely on each other.

Laura Kennedy finds herself without a home when part of the city of Astoria, Oregon burns after a solar storm causes a worldwide blackout. Left with few options, she resigns herself to living with her brother’s family and trying to get by while food and resources quickly diminish. As she begins to despair about the fate of the world, a handsome young stranger rides into her life and suddenly she finds herself attracted to a woman in a way she never expected … Sam.

Sam Quinn is a veterinarian student when the power goes out everywhere. Believing everything happens for a reason, she decides to ride Northwest on her horse to explore the rapidly changing landscape in hopes of finding a place where she belongs. Instead, she encounters nothing but fear and unrest, or at least until she has an accident, and wakes up to meet a woman who wants nothing to do with her, but who Sam can’t stop thinking about … Laura.

Taylor Barnes is an Army veteran who is happy to simply work on a farm outside of town, which she shares with her close friends. However, when the city of Astoria struggles to maintain order after the world goes dark, she suddenly she finds herself thrust into a leadership role she never wanted. The only reason she agrees is so she can keep the world safe for the woman she loves … Jackie.

Jackie Scott, once a powerful CEO, had the world at her fingertips but is now adrift in a new reality without any of the modern conveniences she once relied on. Living on her sister’s farm near the small town of Astoria, the only stability she can rely on is the one person who she is slowly learning to trust and, if she is willing to listen to her heart, maybe even love … Taylor.

The end of the world is only the beginning.

If you like a story with romance and adventure, mixed with conflict and heroism, then you will love KC Luck’s page-turning new book. Explore the world of “Darkness Remains” today!

Note: This is a full-length novel, which can be read as a stand-alone book, however, it is closely tied to the previous story “Darkness Falls.” These books have an end-of-the-world theme but are significantly more focused on strong female characters in loving lesbian relationships.

I had the good fortune to ask KC a couple of questions about her new release!

Why did you want to write this book, specifically?
Darkness Remains is a continuation of the story about the end of the world as we know it. I felt the characters’ stories, as well as that of the town they all live in, were not yet finished.

What do you like best about it?
I love the characters. They have such distinct personalities, including the two new characters I added. Even though the plot of the book (worldwide catastrophe) is a huge part of the story, the novel is really moved along by the relationships.

Can you tell the readers something about Darkness Remains that they might not know just from reading the book?
There is a horse in this novel, which is described and named the same as the one I rode as a youngster. It belonged to the neighbor, but I coveted him and always vowed to someday have one of my own. Yet to happen, but perhaps this homage is enough.

In ten words or less, tell us why we should buy this book?
Even in humanity’s darkest hours, love can join us together.
