I could write a huge chunk about this book but let some readers tell you in their own words. Here are some reviews

The writing in Darkroom felt almost poetic to me right from the beginning and the first few chapters left me feeling very heady. I very much enjoy books that are able to get into my head in such ways, so I was eager to continue reading. Through Poppet's words and descriptions, I felt as if I sat in the darkness alongside Shauna. I was completely pulled under by this story. There was a mysterious air surrounding Vengeance and it gave me feelings of fear and apprehension as the story progressed.
The shifts between characters messed with my head a bit, and I was constantly wondering if Vengeance and Victor are one in the same. The words were constantly making me unsure. At the end of Chapter 20, it became obvious that there were bigger things happening behind the scenes and the watcher was actually being watched. I didn't know what to trust in this book and felt as if I were always looking over my shoulder.
It was incredible how Victor was able to manipulate her any which way he chose. As Shauna talked to Victor while struggling to piece together information, I was so afraid for her.
Chapter 35 had my head spinning with all the possibilities as some interesting information came to light. Shauna's thoughts and emotions were often all over the place. At times she would have a fleeting glimpse of a thought that Victor was not all that he appeared, but then it would be gone just as quickly as it came. Her mental state throughout made me feel off-kilter as well. I loved how Poppet had created a story that had my mind all twisted up over and over again. The ending was crazy enough, but the chapter with the alternate ending really had me freaking out. I need more and I need it now.

Here is a sample from the beginning of DARKROOM

and holy hell did this deliver. This is no light read, my friends. Victor/Vengeance has set out to convert Shauna from the dirty whore he perceived her to be into his perfect dirty angel. There's torture, both psychological and physical, sexual abuse, and LOTS of manipulation.
Again, this is no light read.
I have to give kudos to the author for the amount of research that must've gone into this book. Scripture is quoted often and "God's word" played a heavy role throughout. I was often surprised at Poppet's ability to find an appropriate verse to quote, especially during the more intense scenes, but she did and it made it all the more powerful.
There were times I was a little confused as to who was speaking... The POV switches to Victor's father, the Alpha, and is denoted by an asterisk. I tell you this as it would've been helpful for me to know beforehand but other than that, and some minor editing problems (hear/here), I really enjoyed Poppet's intellectual writing style.
I can honestly say I've never read a book like this before. Is it dark erotica? Yes, but in a most uncomfortable way. This is not a capture fantasy. Victor/Vengeance is not your average anti-hero; he is pure evil and I cannot wait to read book 2.

5.0 out of 5 starsDark, dark, dark - and be warned, it leaves a part of itself behind!

I've been meaning to write up a review of this one for a little while, but to be honest I've been toying with my emotions on it. This book is incredibly dark, not dark like usual dark erotica that disturbs you a bit but you crack on with it all the same, ACTUALLY dark. Really dark. So dark it creeps inside your soul and leaves you tainted. I felt dirty and creeped out by this book, but it has soul. It's hard to convey in actual words (hence the delay in the review).

I can honestly say this is the only book I've ever read where I've genuinely hoped the heroine would commit suicide. Not just a bit either, I was there with my Kindle rooting for her. 'Please do it, end it, please!!! You have to get out of this!! Death is the best way!' but it got me like that. I'd think about it when I wasn't reading, and reading it was a compulsively twitchy, unpleasant but addictive kind of affair.

This book is executed with great style. It's very well written, it's got atmosphere pouring from it and it's dark as dark gets. If that's your bag you should read it, and you will love it. I loved it, but I'm not sure I would want to read it again. Not yet anyway, I'm still scrubbing it off my skin from the last time. Still, despite the horror and the mixed emotional response to this very original piece, it's got so much soul pouring from its spurting black heart that it's a 5* from me.

If you like dark then definitely give this one a read, just don't blame me if you're sleeping with the light on afterwards.
