The sexy fast-paced tone of the novel Into the Darkness mirrors the heavy metal music that provided the backdrop to the writing of the book.
The following list is provided by author Fox Lee. Many of these songs (and perhaps a craft beer and/or several mixed drinks) were the actual music that provided the pace and vibe for the book.
If you want to experience the book in full vitality, try reading it while listening to this music turned up until the windows rattle.

Here are several reader reviews from the pre-release period last week (6 five-star ratings):
“Into the Darkness will have you moaning and groaning, shambling for the next book in the series.”
“I loved the surprisingly strong women characters in this book – sexy and tough! This is definitely going to be a book series to follow. The story would make a great movie or TV show somewhere in the future.”
“For me, though, the best part of the book was the underlying themes – the ageless battle of good vs evil and the complex romantic relationship between the main characters Quinn and Hope. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.”
“I LOVED it. Into the Darkness is so much more than a zombie thriller. It has an intriguing, clever and fast moving story line with rich and well crafted characters. There is no shortage of action, and this coupled with that tinge of romance makes it a very enthralling read. Highly recommended. 5 golden stars well deserved. Roll on the next novel please.”
