I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this book but high ratings from others suggested the writing and story would be good. While the first chapters were a little slow for me, it picked up steam and it was a pleasant surprise to me how much I did enjoy the Audible version. Ember is an 18 yo young woman trying to finish HS but unusual things happen around her. She is sent to an 'alternative' school to finish the last couple of months of school and there she meets Eli. Everything that seems to happen to her revolves around him in one way or another. Added to that is her realistic dreams where she meets Toren but she's convinced that isn't real. It isn't until the end of the story that Ember learns the truth about who and what everyone around her are and what she is. So much story material can't be contained in one book. A cliffhanger ending but I will definitely be reading the next book. Don't be skeptical, this is a very enjoyable book.

This is my first Book by this author and after I was done, I devoured the rest of the series! I started this series because of a friends always raving about this author and went into it completely blind and spent most of this book wondering what the heck Ember was! This book is action-packed, a little YA, Quirky and is full of sexual tension! I really enjoyed the world building, the paranormal originality and the writing! The character are great too, they are all so completely different from each other. I was so excited to finally find out what was going on I knew I had to jump right into book two!
The narrator for this series is great too!

Would you consider the audio edition of Darkness of Light to be better than the print version?
Didn't read in print.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Didn't have a favourite but as i continue i am sure I will.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
This narrator Has read another book I have listen to and tbh her voice doe's start to annoy me because at the end of a sentence she tends to hold on to the last word.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
At points in the story I did find myself getting pretty angry!
Any additional comments?
I would have liked to listen to book 2 but its not available so I ordered the kindle addition but i can't see myself reading it with all the other audible books on offer. Would defiantly recommend this book to someone who likes to be removed from reality....

I've tried to listen to this but am finding it impossible due to the narration. If you are ok listening to a whiny girl trying to be sexy and thoughtful, this will be no problem. She has terrible voice drag, all her words seem dragged out at moments they are actually needed to be speeded up, and the tone is the same whether worried, upset or excited.
The actual story does intrigue me, though there's a lot of 'what is going on?' - I'm half way through and I'm still no nearer to finding out.
But I would still like to find out, which must be a good thing story-wise so I'm off to find a hard copy instead
