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...more

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...more
This one grabbed me from the get go. Straight away you see that these pesky kids are dabbling in things they really ought not to. You get that feeling that you want to reach into the pages and shake them for being so daft! I like it when a book makes me feel like that!

Particular things I liked about this book. It's British. very British, in fact it is set in my local area on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. As such some of the speech of the characters is very... shall we say... localised? I'm intere...more

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. Those elements are there, but it transcends that on so many levels, both physical and spiritual, and Ley does an amazing job of weaving together these two existences in such a way that is very believable.

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

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...more

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.
Bought this on a wim as it was on sale, ended up being the best book I've read in a long time. Totally creepy, believeable characters, great story. Can't wait for the next one.

Absolutely brilliant. Very visual story, I can well imagine this as a supernatural TV series. Read it, read it, read it!
Great story! I loved all the twists and turns at the end.
