"Review published in the October 28th 2014 edition of the Gold Coast Bulletin"

WHOA. Can I just say that I’ve never had a book that has made me laugh, cry and frown all in one sitting.

Benton’s debut novel, A Wicked Kind of Dark, follows the witty Robert Duncan who is left with a large part of his memory missing after an incident from his childhood. Robert finds himself obsessed with a beautiful red-haired girl whose familiarity continues to baffle him. But with the help of some new friends, he soon fights against the dark forces to save the girl before it’s too late.

Honestly, I’m so happy to see a fantasy piece that combines a little bit of reality within it. My emotions were constantly switching from tears because of the back story, to laughter at some of the hilarious dialogue. Although this piece is suitable for all ages, Benton has captured the very essence of what it’s like to be a teenager trying to figure things out for themselves.

This young adult fiction piece has done an amazing job at proving just how important it is to see the world through the eyes of our inner innocence.
