The Dark Chorus

ASHLEY MEGGITT Before I begin this review of the horror novel, The Dark Chorus by Ashley Meggitt, I would like to give some trigger warnings for this book.

This complicates the husband-wife relationship because Raphael wants a human colony, but Tom believes that Martians are the next stage of human evolution.  There’s a lot happening in this book from rogue cyborgs to shady military and if you’re someone like me who [ . . . ]
