Publisher's Summary

It was passed down from generation to generation. The legend of The Dark'Un, the strange beast that roamed Pale Dove Mountain. The dark monster that no one had ever seen - at least not and lived to tell about it - except, so it was said, old Fletcher Brice who lived at the foot of the mountain. No one really believed in The Dark'Un. It was just a story to make a child's flesh crawl.

Until Old Man Brice died.

Now, the people of Tucker's Mill, Tennessee, would be forced to believe.

Great Story. Needs Different Narrator

This is a unique and interesting story. Unfortunately, the narrator has a jovial voice and an upward lilt to the end of almost every sentence which is more suitable for YA. This book is dark and violent and requires someone like Dick Hill, Richard Ferrone, or R.C. Bray to read it. The narration is not dreadful, it just doesn't match the story at all.

The Creature Feature Turned On Its Head!

Story – 4.5 Stars (rounded up)
Narration - 4.5 Stars

In “The Dark’Un”, Ronald Kelly takes the typical creature feature and turns it upside down!

Doing this without spoilers is going to be hard, but here goes;
Everything is exactly as you would expect, at first, luring you into a sense of creature feature familiarity. The townspeople are quite normal, the evil industrialist is the epitome of evil, and his mercenaries are too stereotypical. But as the action starts, one begins to believe that all may not be as it seems. And then, everything not in the center turns upside down!

In my opinion, this isn’t horror any more than Sharknado was, but it’s still awesome and a heck of a lot of fun. In fact, one part made me laugh harder than I have since January. My wife thought I was gonna choke!

Kelly also lets his imagination run wild by adding a thing or two that reminded me of imagery right out of “Yellow Submarine” the animated movie! All this plus a bit of environmentalism!

Recommended – if you don’t require anything extreme in your horror.
