✦ Read as apart of Unapologetic Romance Readers Halloween 2016 Reading Challenge for a romance about vampires

Of Light and Darkness was terrible, and not to mention creepy. Everything (the characters, the world building, the plot) was weak and predictable.

The biggest turn off was the romance. While it is a love triangle, it was fairly obvious from the beginning that Aiden was going to end up out of luck. Not even half way through the book, Charlotte and Valek confess their love for each other. Their relationship transcends CRINGEWORTHY. He is the equivalent of her adoptive father (she refers to him as her adoptive father and other characters just say father throughout the book), and literally raised her. To say the least, it was uncomfortable reading about how Charlotte was in love with him and him reciprocating those feelings made it 20x worse.

I need to take a long shower after reading this. I feel gross.
