Lorelei Gale breaks into Jack Frenchís
hotel room to escape the monsters that may be tracking her.
The monsters killed her mother, so she and some friends
banned together to try and stop them. Lorie was the bait.
She was supposed to lure them so the others could trap them
but things did not work out as planned. Her friends are dead
and Lorie is hiding in a strangerís hotel room. Jack takes
full advantage of Lorieís predicament. He was waiting for a
private dancer but he is Lorieís only shot against the
monsters and he needs to feed. Jack and his twin brother
Tommy are Huntsmen. They feed off of sexual energy. While
Jack and Loriís relationship intensifies, Tommy is left to
find his own feeder. Jack, Tommy, and Lorie ban together to
hunt and destroy the Hydes - the monsters who prey in the
dark. When one of them becomes the thing they hunt, they may
be forced to kill the familiar face of a monster.
Lights Out! is very interesting but a bit hard
to follow. It starts off in the middle and things are
explained as they happen. It is an eerie story with cool
imagery. The monsters that go bump in the night in
Lights Out! will tear you apart if they get you.
The dynamics of Jack, Tommy, and Lorieís relationship create
a lot of angst. Itís an unusual love story because of how
Jack and Lorie meet and what is going on around them. I was
saddened by how things worked out with Tommy. Lights
Out! is very creative and intriguing. Although there
is a happy ending, there is also sorrow, loss, and rape. It
left me with some mixed emotions.
