Publisher's Summary

Four years after being drugged and tricked into marriage with 14-year old Willow Givanchy, the unwanted daughter of his deadliest enemy and a reputed witch, Gerard Lytton returns home from America to find his wife and family changed. His mother is dead and his child bride has become a beautiful and capable woman, who has taken her place as mistress of the estate. His father is ill and close to death.Brought up in Ireland by a male tutor, Willow excels in the manly arts of fencing and shooting. She has become well-loved within the Lytton family circle, and has lost none of her fiery independence, even while she longs to take her place by her husband's side and become a "proper" wife to him.
But although nobly born, Willow cannot deny her mother's dark reputation, or her father's dishonour... and neither can Gerard forget it. Willow's past becomes a problem to them both even while they fall in love. When Willow's mother appears, it coincides with that of a raven. A series of mysterious events unfold and they cause an obstacle that threatens to tear Gerard and Willow apart for ever.

Interesting but depressing

I enjoyed the writing but cannot imagine why anyone would write a story so depressing. the narration was good if the objective was to make a black story blacker. I found this hard to listen to but was caught up with the characters and so stayed with it to the end.

The story was very interesting, with plenty going on to keep you from getting bored.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Daughter of Darkness?

I liked that the female lead character wasn't one of the usual simpering girly-girl types that are typical of this kind of book. I liked that she could ride and shoot and fence as well as many of the men.


What about Tadhg Hynes’s performance did you like?

I really loved the narrator's accent. I could listen to him read all day! I didn't have any problems keeping up or telling who said what. I was surprised to read this in the other reviews when I finished listening.
