Today I am reviewing Darkness Watching by Emma L. Adams
She thinks she’s losing her mind, but the truth is far more frightening: she can see into the Darkworld, the home of spirits- and the darkness is staring back.
Desperate to escape the demons, Ash accepts a place at a university in the small town of Blackstone, in the middle of nowhere – little knowing that it isn’t coincidence that led her there but the pull of the Venantium, the sorcerers who maintain the barrier keeping demons from crossing from the Darkworld into our own world.
All-night parties, new friendships and a life without rules or limits are all part of the package of student life – but demons still stalk Ash, and their interest in her has attracted the attention of every sorcerer in the area. Ash is soon caught between her new life and a group of other students with a connection to the Darkworld, who could offer the answers she’s looking for. The demons want something from her, and someone is determined to kill her before she can find out what it is.
In a world where darkness lurks beneath the surface, not everyone is what they appear to be…
My Review: I really enjoyed this young adult paranormal book. Lots of good original ideas. The characters were well developed and there was enough action to keep a reader interested. I was a little disappointed because the end seemed a little rushed but since this is the first in the series I can overlook that. I am interested to follow more of the adventures of Ash as she explores her new world and powers. There was only very minor editing issues that did not detract from the story. I give this book 4 stars.
