I read this whole series in a few days and it was great to revisit The Vampire Academy world again although this series takes place in a different setI read this whole series in a few days and it was great to revisit The Vampire Academy world again although this series takes place in a different setting. Sydney has gone through a complete transformation and I enjoyed following along beside her in her journey. She is constantly trying to juggle her responsibilities as an alchemist and deal with other catastrophes. I don’t know how she does it but she is one smart cookie!
Her relationship with Adrian gave me butterflies. It’s so good to see him being happy again since Rose broke his heart. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect from these two since they are so different but let’s just say they are so cute together. I’m loving Sydney even more as I continue on with this series.
This series has brought magic and witches to the forefront. So, I’m really enjoying the complexities of the magic that’s detailed in this series. Who is Marcus Finch? Well, now I know. I’m looking forward to finding out what happens next....more

DARKNESS BECOMES HER packed a punch as Gods and monsters battled it out for power over New 2 (New Orleans). From the very start of this book, I was immediately drawn into Ari’s world. She’s different and she wants answers about her mom. Unfortunately for Ari, those answers come with a price. Things kicked into high gear when Ari goes searching for answers in New 2 where talk of paranormal creatures resides. This was a train ride that I did not want to exit!
I love the protagonist’s voice. Ari is one tough gal and she knows how to dish out punishment if needed. In New 2, Ari finds kindred souls and for once feels like she belongs. I enjoyed the adventures that she had to go on to find answers about her family and herself. As brutal as some of the answers where, it all came together perfectly to create a heart-pounding page-turner. I also love the setting. Keaton’s detail to the setting of New 2 drew me into her world as if I was right there with Ari experiencing its beauty. The sequences of DARKNESS BECOMES HER take place over a few days and I enjoyed reading about the history and characters that formed the Novem. The Misfits as they are called that Ari becomes acquainted with are enjoyable and I loved their camaraderie. Sebastian, tall, dark and moody made my heart go pitter patter during a few scenes and I found myself wanting more scenes with Ari and Sebastian. DARKNESS BECOMES HER has an interesting cast of characters that’s for sure!
After reading the synopsis of this book, I would have never thought that I would be getting the treats that were written inside this page turner. It’s different and was totally unexpected. The only thing I can say now is: More Please! Yes, I’m curious to how things will play out in the next installment. If they are anything like this book, then I know I’ll be in for a surprise. I can’t wait to read more! ...more
