I had the privilege of reading this piece of literature multiple times across its development lifecycle.

The Dark, simply put, was written for the characters that live there. The author does a wonderful job with her writing and creates a cast that you will adore (and possibly hate!). It's a lot longer than many of the recent fiction titles that have been released recently. However, the story reads easily from start to finish and at no point feels like it's dragging on.

This is a fast-paced read set in an intriguing alternate future that is grounded in reality and is sure to please both fans of fantasy and realism. There is plenty of cloak-and-dagger action and mystery to keep readers wondering what's next, and the fun and witty characters are easy to fall in love with. Enjoy this great story!

This was a fun read in the Dystopian fiction category. Given the ages of the characters and the situations they encounter, I think the book could be categorized as either for Young adults or adults. The characters were enjoyable and non-predictable.
I look forward to reading more in this series!!
I received this book free in a Goodreads giveaway.

Great book with a new and original take on the dystopian style novel. An enthralling mix of action and romance. Combines all the aspects of books that I love into one book seamlessly. Would suggest the book to anyone!

A bit rough at the start but gets better

The beginning of the book is a bit slow, and can be a bit jumpy but it's not long before it settles in and gets going. It ends up being a very fun read.

I'm a writer, drawer, crafter, techie, gamer, runner, and I love the wilderness. My favorite place to write is in a comfy chair, looking at nature.
