[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Darkness Falls

Erin Kellison: stories have always been a central part of Erin's life. She attempted her first book in the 6th grade, a dark fantasy adventure, and still has those early hand-written chapters. She graduated summa cum laude with a degree in English Language and Literature, and went on for a masters in Cultural Anthropology, focusing on oral storytelling. When she had children, nothing scared her anymore, so her focus shifted to writing fiction. She lives in Arizona with her two beloved daughters and husband, and she will have a dog (breed undetermined) when her youngest turns five. 

You can keep up with Erin online at her Website, on Facebook, on Twitter, and on GoodReads.

Darkness Falls

Buy from Amazon / B&N / Kobo

Agent Malcolm Rook is hunting 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. Yet the dreamwaters they enter are too exhilarating to resist, and attraction soon ignites electric passions. Delving too deep stirs a nightmare, one they must defeat, or be forever lost to darkness.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:
*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

Oh my sweet Goddess, this book! I purposely hadn't read the blurb, and when I started reading and was thrown - head first - into this stellar new world, I could only gasp. I actually went outside to relay the concept to my other half (who could have cared less) because I simply had to tell someone. :)

Remember those Choose Your Own Adventure books where you could pick different outcomes? Have you ever had a serial dream; one where you dream a continuing story night after night? Imagine those together as a new popculture rage, wherein you pay to share a dream landscape with others and lucid dream your deepest fantasies within that landscape. Now, throw in some individuals who are naturally open to getting into and controlling these dreams and landscapes on both the good and evil side of the coin...

This book was instantly compelling, utterly intriguing, chock full of absolutely incredible characters, and had plenty of wit and sexiness to round out the dark goodness.

I'd love to tell you more about the incredible characters, but in so doing, I'd be forced to give spoilers and I just don't do that. Suffice it to say I would highly recommend this book!

5 skulls for Darkness Falls. I'm reveling in the sheer genius of this fresh new world, and the masterfully spun tale from the mind of one of the best dark fantasy romance storytellers around.
