's review

it was amazing

Darkness Watching is initially framed by its interesting (unique?) presentation of demons - intriguing, and given shape as the story progresses by the refusal to polarise 'good and evil' (rather presenting factions and individuals as they are; flawed, to various extents), which I found particularly engaging as so many fantasy stories are spoiled by the 'us vs them', 'pick one of two sides' dynamic. The characters are likeable enough - presenting the naivety and malleability of fresher-age students. That's what people of that age group are - finding themselves in the world (or worldS!). Ashlyn is a little disengaged in some situations, but then those are situations we have already been told she wouldn't choose to put herself in without the broader context of 'university life' and friends, so it's ultimately forgivable.
Oh, and the twist is great.
