Almost every morning for the last few months she’s woken up with cuts and bruises on her body, and no idea how she got them. There are no nightmares.

This story is another star turn from the pen (mind, fingertips, take your pick) of Pippa Jay, and gets an unreserved five stars from me. Jay's story-telling skill continues to shine bright, drawing readers into the worlds she creates with ease and simplicity.

This book has the reader asking questions from almost the first paragraph, probably because Kadie, the main character, is also asking questions. As the blurb says, she wakes up with a bruise on her arm and no knowledge of how it got there. S

Heart-pounding Action and Romance

When Dark Falls draws you in immediately with its wonderfully written deco punk atmosphere and the lure of a mystery to solve as the main character, Kadie, struggles to figure out what happens to her at night. Those familiar with superhero stories won't wonder long--it's clear early on what's happening. That won't keep you from enjoying the story, though, as Pippa Jay weaves two narratives together with a tense backstory and a vibrant love interest. Her main char

Kadie is a young woman trapped in the city of Nephopolis, where "morning comes in flame and darkness." Although she has tantalizing clues, she has no memory of her life before. Now, she slaves for meager rations under the tyranny of the man known as Dark, whose cloudburners toil daily to blot out the sun. Only the occasional distant kindness of her manager, Jev, leavens her endless labor, and Kadie is drawn to him. But it's too dangerous to act on her feelings, as the slightest infraction could ...more
