Review: Darkness Falls

Darkness Falls (Reveler #1) by Erin Kellison

Agent Malcolm Rook hunts for people with the rarest of talents — the ability to master dreams. He finds the undeniably gifted Jordan Lane, but she’s wary of mysterious Rook and resists his pursuit as long as she can. When the dreamwaters they enter are too exhilarating to resist, their attraction explodes into passion. But delving too deep stirs a nightmare — one they must defeat together, or be forever lost to darkness.

My Thoughts:

This book was a really pleasant surprise. I picked it up by accident and I don't regret it one bit. It was just so much fun! Sure it was a little... raw? Is that the word? It was just that tad too unpolished, but it had an easy reading style and I flew threw it quickly.

The concept of it, singularly,  was brilliant. We had this entire new dream world to explore with demons, monsters, little boy ghosts and so much more. I loved the creativity. I've never read anything like it before which is always welcomed - a million times better than having to suffer through another clichéd-riddled paranormal romance!

The characters and romance were also very well written. It does have a small case of insta-lust though which is always a big no-no. The couple however were really sweet together. If the author had taken a little more time to develop their relationship it would have been spot on.

Altogether this was an easy story to breeze through with great characters, great romance and a great plotline. There isn't much more you can ask for. If you're into adult paranormal romances I would easily recommend you give this a go.
