I am glad to be able to read and review this amazing book!!! I loved getting the back story of George and where he came from. And how he got so messed up I felt bad for Frank at first, while he was growing up and having to deal with what he had to. But as he got older and wanted a 'normal' life, well he gets sucked right back in to all the darkness.
And I can totally see how he got so messed up. This is a great stand alone or companion to the Desolace series, but a must read either way!!! This is a great stand alone or companion to the Desolace series, but a must read either way!!!!! Destined for Darkness is the first book I have read by Lucian Barnes.
This thrill ride sucks you in immediately and won't let go.

Well, imagine that your destiny starts with something your father did, something so unimaginable, and so dark; and then this darkness follows you.
