A Voice In The Dark:Get Your Gun 1+2

A great jumping-on point for new readers. With Zoey and
several of her roommates possible suspects in the murder of Mandy Jenkins,
Uncle Zeke is taken off the case to avoid a conflict of interest. Meanwhile,
Zoey meets her ‘fan’ for the first time without masks.
Zoey and Rio get to know each other better and find in each other someone who truly understands them. Detective Dunst starts to narrow down the suspect list, but is he working for justice or money?
We all inherently have secrets as humans, it’s really a
given.  For some of us though, the
secrets we hold just under the surface are a bit more serious.  There are even those secrets which even cross
over into the darker side of things. 
This is just the kind of thing we explore with the new series for A
Voice in the Dark: Get Your Gun.
To friends and family, Zoey is just a typical college
student doing typical college student things. 
Beneath that innocent face is a young woman trying to ignore her urges
and avoid becoming a serial killer.  As
careful as she may have been in her few murderous events, someone noticed
her.  Someone she finds out has been
stalking her for some time now.  After
Zoey meets face to face with him, she learns that she is far from the only
student there who has had the same urges. 
As the two get to know each other, it seems like they’re headed for
more, but will it be able to endure with their tendencies?
The artwork used within this book is pretty well drawn
and colored, with both jobs being added to Larime Taylor’s list of contributions.  It had a more toned down feel to it, which in
a way actually works along with the dark feel of the story.  There were no glaring problems or areas that
bothered me, so in that sense job well done.
I’ve never read any of the original series that this is connected to, but as stated this is a
perfect way to get into it.  Without any
prior knowledge, you’ll easily be able to break into this tense story.  After being grabbed with similar stories such
as Dexter and the like, this definitely caught my interest.  With issue two being given out for free as
shown below, there’s really no reason not to!
You all know Larime Taylor at this point.  The first 7 issues of Voice in The Dark shipped monthly without skipping a beat.  The first issue of the second arc A Voice in the Dark: Get Your Gun went to press and Larime was hit with the tragic news that his wife had cancer.  Needless to say, this affected his ability to get the work done timely in assisting her with treatment, etc.  

The second issue is in stores this week, and we all know that people are somewhat unforgiving of late books, but since this is an extreme circumstance from a guy who’s proven his ability to deliver, we wanted to actually call attention to it and do something about it.  So, after discussing with Larime (openly cc’d above, feel free to interview him), we’ve decided to give the first issue of the 2nd arc away free.  It will go up on our site and everywhere and there’s no embargo, feel free to post it now.

Here it is:
