The Dark Inside by Rupert Wallis

cover41931-mediumHow did I get the book? Netgalley, thank you Simon and Schuster & I bought a copy.

Genre: Fantasy

Synopsis: When thirteen-year-old James discovers a homeless man in an abandoned house, the course of his life changes dramatically. Hoping to find a ‘cure’ for a dark curse inflicted on the homeless man, the pair embark on a journey together not knowing that what they discover will impact them both in ways they never imagined…A gripping and haunting story about loss and hope, perfect for fans of Patrick Ness and David Almond.

Mini review: I struggled a bit with writing up my thoughts on this story.

The Dark Inside has an enticing premise and there are many things I enjoyed about it. The friendship that develops between James and Webster, the way Rupert Wallis merges myth/magic with reality but I didn’t connect with the story as much as I wanted which is a shame.
