I'm waiting anxiously for this final book... but the cover really disappointed me.

I struggle to describe how bad this is, but in all honesty, it reads like really amateurish fanfiction for a couple of reasons.

I've read the first book about a year ago and it was bad; but I'm one of those people who have to finish a series.
First I spent about 15 minutes reading summaries and reviews, even my own, of the first two books because I couldn't even remember most of what had happened: they're that memorable.

Update: My editor is working on Darkness Fades right now so it should be ready in a week and a half give or take a few days. Sorry, it's behind schedule. (From her blog)

I was so excited to read the third and final book of this series. However, I was a little disappointed with the way it was written. It seemed rushed and there were some inconsistencies and numerous spelling errors as well. I just wish the author put as much detail into this book as she did in her previous books.

At first I loved this series and expected the final book to really deliver on the details; however, there were a major loose end that was never completed/explained.

The Highers language, this seemed to be a big deal in the previous book, especially when a non-higher was found to know or understand their language, yet no explanation was even given has to where this language even came from. The whole language thing hinted at the Highers being an alien race or from some unknown/unheard of region, bu

This book felt like it was a rush write to me. I really enjoyed the first two books in the series, then this one I read in 3 hours. I don't think everything was finished either. I think I left the series with more questions than answers.

What a great ending to this series!

I love this series; the different types vampires, apocalyptic world, love triangle, suspense. I waited so long for this book and it didn't disappoint. Jessica has a way to build suspense and keep it last. Battle and fighting scenes can be visualized perfectly, where in other books I'm wondering, "Wait, how did that man go from ripping whats-his-faces head off on the bottom of the stairs to suddenly being on the top of the stairs, falling over? When did he climb

Pretty consistent writing (and editorial misses) in the final book of the series. The too-ing and fro-ing of the various 'viruses and antidotes' remains fairly vague, as does the transition from all out assault to victory in the final pages, nevertheless I was invested enough in the characters to let that go. A satisfactory close to the trilogy, and an entertaining weekend read, though a high level of violence makes it a questionable YA despite the age of the protagonists.

Nice idea for a story but I couldn't get past the major errors in grammar. If children are reading this it will reinforce their current issues with there/their/they're and than/then (seriously how can two completely different words be confused?)which the author seems incapable of using in the correct places.
These errors amongst others really detract from the story.

I can honestly say that only emotion that I muster after finishing this book is let down. There was simply nothing that felt worthwhile and it seemed like all of the character development went out the window.

I truly enjoyed the story. But this final episode me left me a little wanting more plot and less romance. is that to much to ask? The first installment created an expectation of more story than I found in this episode .

This book was just not a page turner for me like the other two were. The story was somewhat lacking and I found myself skipping pages. Overall, I feel pretty disappointed in the execution of this final chapter in the series.

Well, its finished.
Read it one day.
And quite satisfying as well.

It was fast and bloody and dirty.
But not as much as I wanted it to be.

I liked how not everything got resolved at the end, I mean the end here, is like another starting block for the characters, to eventually go out and continue their duty.

Due to the shortness of the book, I think some things happened to fast, and again to easily. Particularly the rescue mission at the beginning. And characters changed personalities and motiv

I dreaded the end to this series because I had a feeling that no matter what happened I was going to be disappointed. Unfortunately I was right. The book was both too short and too long. The important things-if there hope of finding the cure, if both the brothers be saved, was Kayla still being led astray, who was truly good and who was evil- felt rushed, love story was almost non existent and yet the book.dragged.on.and.on. The characters transformed from the complicated, confused and damaged p ...more
I've been looking forward to finishing this series for awhile. It's nothing phenomenal, but it was fun and I like Kayla.

While I enjoyed reading this, I didn't love it. The ending wasn't very satisfying to me. I felt like it was kind of cop-out and everything wrapped up to nicely. Sorenson is a creative writer, but she stays on the surface in this book. I would have loved to see her go deeper with the characters and their relationships.

Kayla finds herself trapped with the Highers and then Aiden

I am reviewing the teen fiction novel Darkness Fades by Jessica Sorensen which is a very good story which I bought from kindle. This book is a bit of a horror novel and might be unsuitable for younger readers. The lead character is a kind of half human, half vampire entity called a day taker and has been captured. Her friend who has become a day walker with the aid of a blood transfusion and now has incredible strength rescues her but she is reluctant to leave Sylas who was attacked by something ...more

Yes!!!! All my favorite characters are back!!! Kayla, Sylas, Tristan, Aiden, and Maci!! I am such a fan girl for Sylas! Those of you who have read the series…you know why ; ) I finished this book in one day! I couldn’t put it down because I soooo wanted Kayla to have her happy ending and for all of this madness to end. This book continues off when Kayla and Sylas were captured in the end of the second book.

I don’t want to give anything away, but there is alot of fighting, and blood shed. There

I have just finished all three books in the Darkness Falls series and what I think is most important to pass on it is that you have to read all three, it is a trilogy so just reading the first is pointless as all you will be is confused.

The covers all look great.

No. 1. Darkness Falls
A very different sort of vampire story and by the end of book one you will not have the faintest idea of what is going on.

No. 2. Darkness Breaks
By the time you get to book two the story opens up and hints are given a

I just finished reading the final book in Jessica Sorensen's Darkness Falls trilogy. The perfect ending to an amazing story. This trilogy sucked me in from the very beginning. I couldn't stop reading. The characters are so well developed and the way she lets you see little snippets of Kayla's past was so well done. The way you can connect with Kayla even though she's not human anymore is amazing. Loved the little twists she throws in with some of the main characters. They make you want to keep r ...more

Overall, I enjoyed reading this series. It had its ups and downs, but it was an interesting world to read about. The ending, however, was drawn out and far too predictable.

I love how(view spoiler). The end was perfect. It had the perfect climax and ending. I was frantically flipping pages and re-reading them. The way Sorensen wrote this trilogy where Kayla has flashbacks is a good way to tell readers what exactly happened to Kayla when she was experimented on. I think she should actually do a novella about it because that's what I'm most curious about. I'm so glad Slais won Kayla's heart. I l ...more

kayla and sylas have been caught in the end of the last book. this one starts there with us knowing sylas is changing into an abomination while kayla is being tortured. aiden comes to her rescue though. but aiden isn't aiden anymore. and kayla has a hard time deciding whether he is good or bad. while kayla is intent on finding sylas, she must save the world as well.

This book was spectacularly intense and I loved every second of it. Unfortunately the spelling errors ran absolutely rampant and left me wondering if the author even read through the work before publishing it. At one point the error goes as far as to call one character by the wrong name which left me gasping in shock that this character had shown up only to realize he hadn't. It was very annoying, but errors aside the book was amazing.

Again I thought this was another original concept, straying from the traditional sense of Vampires, which i really liked!! However the way this book was written was disappointing... i was really looking forward to this book and they way this book was written really ruined it for me!! I thought the language style was a bit immature and it lacked feeling as well as visual imagery!!

Great ending to a really good series. I was sad to see a main character die, but that is how it goes in the dystopian type like world. I so think that it was for a worthy cause though, and I will not rant and rave because it was a tragedy. Lots of excellence happened from it and for that it was worthy. Great how it ended short and sweet, and not forced like ones that are recently published!
