“You’re not afraid of the dark, are you?”
Riddick, Pitch Black
Since the dawn of time, humanity has been afraid of the dark and the potential horrors that dwell within it. Due to this, I decided to add an extra element to my third fantasy book regarding the monster army. Because of their diverse caste system, unmatched ferocity, and unparalleled coordination, the humans would have a very difficult time fighting back against such a foe. It would be even more difficult if the monster army could fight day in and day out. Therefore, to give the humans a fighting chance against this inhuman enemy, the monster army can only attack at night and they will find shelter wherever they can when the sun comes up. They may be vulnerable when the sun is up, but they will be virtually unstoppable at night. The monsters’ ability to only attack at night will also add a sense of horror and suspense to the story.
