There aren’t too many books out there that I wait most (im)patiently for. A Dark So Deep was one of them. The sequel to The Madness Project, Bralick’s opening gambit in a fusion of fantasy and steampunk, this follow-up brings readers right back to the brink of war in Brinmark, the capital city of Cavnal. Prince Tarik aka the mage called Shade stands in the middle of an ever deepening political intrigue and resulting chasm between the government and its peoples. Is he meant to start or stop a war ...more
I'd like to thank J. Leigh Bralick for writing this incredible book that mercilessly ripped my heart right out of my chest, squeezed endless tears out of it, then shoved it back in. But seriously, this was one of the most brilliantly agonizing books that I've ever read, and so wonderfully unique to all those other books about teenagers saving the world. Bonus points for the accuracy of the title, for it was a dark book indeed. In the beginning, we're hurtled right back into the story, and as the ...more

Amazing, riveting, magnetic!

Talk about mind games. The author picks right up where she left with seamless finesse. I was rooting for Hayli to hang on, I was demanding that Shade hang on as well. I took this book with me to the caucuses, and I couldn't even be bothered to pay attention when they were trying to win the last dude over to one side to avoid a coin toss - you'd think I'd pay attention to that. Oh no, I was more concerned with Tarik and his drive to always put himself in danger. I also snapped at my husband to be ...more

When you read one of the Madness Method books, you're right there, on the ground (or in the air ;)) with the characters; the realism is stunning. Bralick's conceptual magic is astounding, complex, and full of surprises, and makes this one of the most creative fantasy series out there. The tension between magic and science in this second book of the series is especially compelling, as are the character developments, as always.

An exciting adventure

I can't wait to see what happens next in the lives of Haily and T arik

I didn't think I. would like the first book, but as I kept reading I got engrossed in the story and had trouble putting it down. I can't wait to read book three.

*I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not have an effect on my review.
**This review also appears on my blog.
***May contain spoilers if you haven't read The Madness Project

The madness turns dark as Tarik struggles to find his place in a world where things aren't as they seem, and Hayli struggles to hold on to the secrets and truths the Science Ministry tries to erase.

There is seriously so much to this book. I almost don't know where to I'm gonn

There are two because it' far this set. The as story and writing are absolutely genius but both books now have ended leaving the reader hanging on a cliff. I will not be forced to buy subsequent books because I'm left in the dark about what is happening. Authors need more respect for their readers and to themselves to believe in their talent, to know people are going to keep buying their books because they are such good writers. When I really enjoy a book, when it is a book with a be

J. Leigh Bralick is a fantasy author by day and an RN by night...or vice versa, depending on the day. She originally got her bachelor's in medieval history and MA in political philosophy, but decided on a career change when she realized she didn't want to teach, and no one was going to pay her exorbitant sums of money to use her learning to invent fantasy worlds. (She still holds out hope on that ...more

“All I’m trying to say is, be kind to yourself. This one life is all we’ve got, and we all make mistakes along the way. Do things we oughtn’t, fail to do those we should. See those moments for what they were. Learn from them what you can. And then stand up a little taller and keep marching forward. In the end it’s how we keep going that matters. The world won’t remember our falls unless we never pick ourselves up.” 2 likes
