A Touch of Darkness, Key 1, Tina Moss and Yelena Casale

A Touch of Darkness (The Key Series)

A Touch of Darkness, Key 1, Tina Moss and Yelena Casale
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I love paranormal romance, but have had problems with Angelic ones. Some, such as Nalini Singh I love, can’t praise enough, but others I’ve found just don’t cut it for me. Sadly this is one of those…Not everyone likes everything, the sample sounded fun, but I found while reading that the romance angle just wasn’t really feeling right to me, and I was waiting for the story to develop more. It felt like a YA almost with the fallen angels/prophecy connection – that seems to crop up a lot in YA 🙂 and though I enjoy some in that genre, with Cassie being older I was hoping for more, and that this was going to have a stronger story line. It felt almost superficial to me, that I was expecting developments that just weren’t there. Somehow it seemed anti climactic when the big reveal and battles were reached.
As always this is just My view and doesn’t mean you wont enjoy this book. Its well written, its just that the story failed to pull me in, and I didn’t connect with the characters. I have to feel I’m there in the story with them, have to care about what happens to them but I just didn’t. I read thoroughly to 60% then skim read to see what happened so maybe I missed something essential, but I felt I’d given enough time to decide that this story wasn’t one I’d love. Doesn’t mean I’ll not be happy to try something else by the authors – I’ve found before that though I love some of an authors stories that doesn’t mean I’ll love all of them. Of course the fact we have readers with so many different needs means books will always fit some people and not others, regardless of how good the actual writing style is. That was perfect here, its just the way the story played out that didn’t work well for me. It’s priced at £1.86 for 258 pages.
Stars: Two and a half, a good book but just not my style of story.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.

    You can’t get on with every book, no matter how much we wish it 🙂
