Darkseed is a fascinating read that managed to successfully hold my attention. It was the character descriptions and their personal developments that in particular managed to truly capture my interest. The range of personalities evident are very well crafted and in many ways highly believable. It was difficult not to get completely absorbed in the young people's lives as they were navigating through the tension and mystery that awaited them in this novel.

I really appreciated the strong British v

Review:

A few years ago, I read a lot more books about ghosts and the occult than I tend to now. No particular reason, I just felt that I’d exhausted the genre somewhat. However, then I received the request to review Darkseed: Awakening I couldn’t resist it. And actually, it was a refreshing change from the genres I normally read, and also I ended up completely absorbed in what was happening.

This book was actually creepy – I actually stopped reading it late at night on more than one occasion for

What an absolutely GREAT book!!

Victoria Ley’s Darkseed: Awakening is a masterful book! You may think this book is just about séances and Ouija boards, but you would be wrong.

The story grabs you right from the very first sentence. The action is palpable and at times leaves you breathless at what

Sometimes when I'm searching for a horror novel to read, I come across some Young Adult novels that look better than the ones meant for adults. Some good YA horror novels include the Cirque Du Freak series by Darren Shan, The Grisly High series by Brian Rowe and the Trifectus series by Logan Bryne. Recently I found another one that is the beginning of a series that looks to be up horror fan's alley called Darkseed: Awakenings by Victoria Ley.

Fifteen year old Sarah and her mother have just moved

A fun and frightening ghost story. Adults and young adults will find this book near impossible to put down. The writing (spelling, expressions, etc) is wonderfully british. This novel is perfect on a rainy evening. Just remember to have lots of strong tea within reach. You'll be too caught up in the story to sleep.
