I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

A Beautiful Dark

A Beautiful Dark - Jocelyn Davies I wasn't sure what to think of this one after I finished. I enjoyed it for the most part. While I didn't love it, I was still intrigued and the last few pages had me crying out for more. The ending is abrupt and everything is left hanging, while I am not a fan of cliffhangers, I also found I was desperate to find out what happened after the ending.

The storyline was an interesting one. It was a variation of the heaven and hell war. While the two groups are shrouded in mystery, we see glimpses of the two through the two guardians that are sent to Skye. I like the variation of the angels. They aren't exactly as we would expect and I was definitely left with the question of just who was the real bad guys were.

While the story is a bit slow paced at the beginning, it definitely picks up speed towards the end. The story was good enough that I will check out the next one and see what happens. This was a decent young adult novel and I hope to see things get better from here.
