Title: A Beautiful Dark (A Beautiful Dark #1)
Author: Jocelyn Davies
Publication date: September 27, 2011
Genre(s): Young Adult (Paranormal - Angels)
Throw in a mysterious boy, multiply it by two, divide them by one girl, you find yourself in a love triangle (math geeks, don’t even comment on how mathematically impossible that is). A Beautiful Dark was full of secrets, anticipation, and confusion between whom you want Skye to end up with; Asher or Devin.
The first things I notice in a book (after the cover) are the names. I hate when authors make up weird confusing similar names for characters, or plain, forgettable ones. However, Skye, Asher, and Devin are such amazing and unique names that I actually didn’t have to open the book and remember their names to write this review! Also the synopsis was very intriguing, and with a love triangle? This seems to be a popular theme nowadays, and trust me, I'm not complaining!
The climax happened towards the end but I felt there wasn't much time for explanations; everything wrapped up too fast for me to comprehend what was going on. This was my only complaint when I read this book. I wished the author gave the ending conflict/fight more pages, so I was left very confused and shocked when I found out that I have reached the last page of the book.
Overall even though I was a bit disappointed with the ending (due to my ultra high expectations), I tremendously enjoyed A Beautiful Dark. I will definitely be looking out for the second book to come out, and all you fallen angels lovers should too!
An awesome beat, keep on drummin'
