Recommendation: 'Dark inside' by Jeyn Roberts

Dark inside by Jeyn Roberts
It's the end of the world (again). This time it's massive earthquakes happening all across the planet at the same time. Normal people turning evil and massacring entire schools. Local people being gunned down in the streets, bodies hung from lampposts. The opening couple of chapters are all too violent. Dead bodies everywhere. But of course there has to be survivors. In Dark Inside a group of teenagers come together to escape from this new evil and maybe team up with other survivors nearby, but that's if they can keep away from the killers. I really started to like this novel, but then near the end of the book I wanted to know what was this force that was making normal people evil. Was it some ancient prophecy coming back? A curse come to life to avenge for man’s mistreatment of earth. I don't know. I read the entire novel and what the evil is, is never revealed. There is a sequel coming out soon, so it looks like I'll have to read that to find out what this evil force is. Not a bad post-apocalyptic novel. It would make a cracking good movie too.
