Descending Into Darkness is engaging from the start. I immediately related to Jess as she scurried to be on time for work, knowing that she would be just slightly late. Her spunkiness in the face of danger was admirable, as was her acceptance of the new world she seemed to embrace almost without question. Alyss was a badass and an awesome little sister. In one night, their world irrevocably changes.

Descending Into Darkness is a compelling paranormal romance. There is an introduction of a race of

I’ve had the opportunity to read this book and feel it is one of the more simplified yet intriguing romantic novels. I’m not one for romantic novels but I thought I would give this a try after my cousin recommended it to me. The author does extremely well conveying emotion yet keeping a storyline without making it feel cheesy or unauthentic. The mix between a contemporary feel versus the underworld keeps the reader at bay as to what’s gonna happen next. I highly recommend reading if it is your ...more

I liked the interesting and mysteriously different storyline, which draw me to the book and triggered my interest. I was looking forward to starting it. However I found the writing style quite difficult to follow at the beginning and the storyline quite complex until I got used to it, having to re read parts of it. The narrative is written from a third person perspective, which unless it's done really well is something that I often struggle with reading. I almost gave up at one point, however ...more

This was great from the get go. Jessa thought she was just an ordinary girl. That is until Fallon tracked her down and took her to his world. There he explained that she was the heir to the Seelie throne. Her world was ripped upside down and now she was in a fight for her life and the lives of others. To top it all of, she and Fallon are mates.... I can't wait to read the next book.
