After reading The Dark Unseen last week I knew I had to grab the first book in this series right away, and I was not disappointed. Jaxson creates a world within our world that cryptic, hidden, and possesses special powers.
There are some particularly graphic moments and the supernatural elements will send a chill up your spine. Don’t fret though, you won’t need a night light for too long after reading this story.
Ari is a reluctant heroine. We meet her as she’s coping with a significant loss having survived a town explosion that killed several other people. For all intents and purposes she should not have survived, but by some miracle she comes out mostly unscathed. Then a mysterious new friend visits in the hospital and things start getting weird.
Ari is thrown into an unknown world and has no choice but to trust those helping her. There are twists and reveals throughout the story that keep the pace moving quickly as you dive into this new complex world with Ari. Despite physical and mental exhaustion our heroine fights the evil lurking at every turn.
I recommend this book if you’re in the mood for a thrilling YA story that creeps you out and makes you question which side is good or evil, and how much fate determines the future of our world.
