Darkness Blooms by Christopher Bloodworth

eBook Novella
I read the ebook edition of Darkness Blooms by Christopher BloodworthDarkness Blooms by Christopher Bloodworth falls into the horror genre catefory and is approximately 74 pages in length.

I was able to download Darkness Blooms by Christopher Bloodworth for FREE to my Kindle from Amazon. Below is my unbiased review for Darkness Blooms.

I usually don't read many books that fall into the horror genre as I am not a huge fan of the horror genre in general. However, after seeing that Darkness Blooms by Christopher Bloodworth had a 4 out of 5 star rating on Amazon based on 70+ reviews, I decided to give it a try. After all it was a free download and the story sounded intriguing. 

Boy, was I sorely disappointed after I finished reading Darkness Blooms by Christopher Bloodworth. It was a complete time waster and I wish I hadn't spent time reading it. I almost quit reading it on several occasions, but only finished it because it was such a short read. Essentially, you have man-eating plants that are out to kill humans and these said plants seem to be very intelligent and work together to kill humans. The leading character, Sylvia, has a weird relationship with her family... And how she chooses to deal with these plants is the primary premise of this novella. Darkness Blooms by Christopher Bloodworth was just a very bizarre read in my opinion.

The following is a plot summary for Darkness Blooms by Christopher Bloodworth from Amazon:
Rooted in blood, darkness blooms...
When Sylvia receives a call from her grandmother telling her that her grandfather has disappeared, she returns home for the first time in years.
She finds something that she could not have expected. Something her grandfather was growing in his greenhouse. Something that's not from here.
I am giving Darkness Blooms by Christopher Bloodworth a rating of 1 star out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. I've read a couple horror short stories and overall, they were just fine to me. Judging by your reaction, I don't think I would like this much more than you. Killer plants with iffy characters? Not my cup of tea. But hey, there have to be some books you don't like!

    1. I've read a few good horror short reads too, like Peeler by Gord Rollo. But, Darkness Blooms by Christopher Bloodworth jujst didn't do a thing for me.
