In the small town of Ptolemy, darkness is a living thing. A powerful thing. Its home is in the shadows of a bizarre, hidden club named Penumbra, where it is worshipped by followers who need the pleasure it gives them. They are addicted to it. They live for it. And they kill for it.
When Aaron was first introduced to Penumbra, he thought it was just a secret club where members could indulge their kinkier fantasies. Bit by bit, as he learned the club's true purpose, he began to change in subtle, horrible ways. Now it's time for Aaron to prepare his first human sacrifice to the waiting darkness. It's too late for him to back out now, but murder is the least of Penumbra's sins. The true terror is still to come when . . . Darkness Wakes.

Tim Waggoner is the author of Darkness Wakes, Pandora Drive, and Like Death.From Publishers Weekly:
A fast-paced, over-the-top, blood-and-guts thriller, Waggoner's latest turns the world of deviant sex clubs into a graphic horror-show. When 45-year-old family man Aaron Rittinger stumbles onto a secret sex club, hidden away in his small Ohio town, he's intrigued; when a sexy neighbor invites him to join, his curiosity gets the best of him. Soon, however, he discovers that the club isn't just for kinky sex—it's for worshipping a demon called the Overshadow, who gives his followers incomparable pleasure in exchange for human sacrifice. As Aaron uncovers the secrets of the club, he becomes torn between current and former members, dragging himself and his family deeper into danger. Waggoner establishes a creepy vibe early and carries the suspense throughout, but his favorite scare technique—the gross-out—is not for the weak-stomached, and his characters, almost all of whom are creepy, ultra-horny and a bit crazy, don't elicit much sympathy. It's a satisfying if unmemorable ride for those who like their horror bloody, their heroes tarnished and their action just this side of unbelievable. (Dec.)
