|Promise me Darkness
Ryder is Maddie's best friend. She has known him for a long time. She also loves him. He is a player. Sleeps with a different girl. Doesn't want a relationship, despite loving Maddie too.
When he decides to enlist in the army, he goes back with Maddie. He meets Maddie's boyfriend who is an arrogant, possessive and dangerous guy. Ryder knows this when he first meets him.
But their relationship problems will be secondary when the United States is attacked by terrorists. The EMP bomb has destroyed all electricity. Maddie, Ryder and friends must go back home. But, everyone is in survival mode and getting home could be almost impossible.
Ryder is great sometimes, but his lack of commitment towards Maddie drove me crazy.
Man up and tell Maddie how you truly feel.
The terrorist attack was scary and made me think that hopefully this will never happen.
