Darke Conteur


I want to tell you a story. It could be about zombies, earth-bound spirits, or metal monsters fueled by a mysterious, new power source. It could whisk you out beyond the stars; to space stations and other worlds, or deep into a virtual landscape that allows us to abandon our bodies but not our minds.

I want to take you to all these places and more, but most of all, I want to entertain you.

​Welcome to my worlds. The adventure is about to begin.

Smashwords book reviews by Darke Conteur

  • The Time Travel Journals: Shipbuilder on March 17, 2012

    What if you were accidentally thrown back in time a hundred years, would you willing try to change events? Or would you try to blend in with society as best as you could? This is the dilemma faced by Sam Altair and Casey Wilson when they are thrown back to turn of the century Ireland. It's the turn of the century and Ireland is a country of turmoil. The hatred between Catholics and Protestants is rampant and one of the worse maritime disasters—the sinking of the Titanic, is just a few years away. With knowledge of future events, Sam and Casey try to accustomed themselves to their new lifestyle, but when Casey falls in love with the designer of the ill-fated ship, they are both torn between saving his life and possible altering the timeline, or let history repeat itself. Review: I'm not a fan of alternate timeline stories but this was more than just a 'what if' story, it's heart-wrenching story of a life that was cut short in one timeline, and given a second chance in another.
