Title: Ever Darkening
Author: Janel Falor
Publication Date: January 28th, 2015
Synopsis: Perfection. Goodness. Elimination of evil. It’s what seventeen-year-old Kaylyn has trained her entire life to achieve. But no one is prepared for the consequences of her actually defeating all evil people on the planet. Finally successful in her mission, Kaylyn faces an unfamiliar world, full of good people doing good things, in which she no longer has purpose.
When the skies grow dark, and a stranger from another village pleads for her help, her instincts roar to life. It turns out their perfect world isn’t exactly what it seems. Kaylyn’s new quest, harder than any she’s been on before, will rip apart her friendships, her life, and her soul more than any evil man ever managed to.
Review: This book was a little slow to start for me. I kept putting it down and was having a hard time getting into what was going on. It took a third of the book for me to get really into the plot and not want to put the book down. I feel that Zophacken could have been explained a little better. It is mentioned a LOT but I didn’t really get a good feel for what it was exactly until the end of the book. Even a small glossary at the front of the book explaining terms like that would have helped a lot. From what I gathered it is a transferable light inside a person that enhances the senses and is based on goodness. It also seemed like it was ‘alive’ in a sense. It helps them find other light/good spots or feel darkness. For the most part this is a really enjoyable story, I would have liked it to have been longer, I wasn’t ready for it to end. I enjoyed all of the characters and with how things ended I do hope that Falor will write more with them and in this world.
I received an ARC of this book from the author on Netgalley. This in no way affected my review.
