Publisher's Summary

Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo. Ember Brycin has been called them all. She's always known she's different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her. When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for trouble teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who's hot as hell and darkly mysterious. Their connection is full of passion, danger, and secrets.
Secrets that will not only change her life, but what and who she is, leading her down a path she never imagined possible. Between Light and Dark, Ember finds a world where truth and knowledge are power and no one can be trusted. But her survival depends on finding out the truth about herself. In her pursuit, she is forced between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren't always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she'll definitely wish she could.

A welcomed surprise & enjoyment

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.

should be titled, "Darkness and Frustration"

Over half of the dialogue dedicated to how warm and lusty he made her feel. This was even after he treated her like crap. There were many eye rolls . There were so many things stated but unexplaineded. I still don't understand the purpose of the 2nd male darting in and out of her dreams leaving the same cryptic message. The author finally started getting to the point around chp 23. I thought, "finally". But the ending was disappointing.
The narrator did well with the exception of the husky, sensual voice which remained throughout. I won't be getting the second book. Sorry.

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....

Good story, shame about the narrator

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
