Review of Darkness by Ciye Cho

Read For: Requested Review
Synopsis: " dire prophecy has emerged, and the mer believe that humans and merfolk are in grave danger. Terror is closing in, but only one person holds the key to stopping it: Florence Waverley. However, her mission to save two worlds will lead her far, far out into the Darkness--a shadow-realm full of monsters, magic, and wicked tides that could tear apart bodies.

With the help of her friends, Florry must uncover a secret about humans and mer. A long-lost secret that could change her life. And above all else, she must fight hard to light the darkness. Everything depends on her mission: her friends, her world, and the one she loves.

The past, present, and future are about to collide--but can she stay afloat? One way or another, nothing will be the same when she enters the Darkness..."

My Review: It took me a bit to get back into the setting and characters but if you read the books a little closer together than I have it should all flow together nicely. As with his other books I love how Cho really keeps you in the setting and makes it clear that Florence is a human living under water. I found it very interesting the twists and turns that this third book takes the story line on, I was surprised with some of the developments. I am not sure but this has the feel of being the last book of the series but it there are a couple of loose ends that can lead into another book.
My Rating: Even though it took be a bit to get back into the book and characters, once I did it was fantastic. Also there is a glossary at the back of the book that is a huge help too.  I give it a rating of Four Paws.
Darkness was sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I hadn't heard of this series. Interesting. I hate when I take too long from one book to another and forget stuff.

    1. I have been reviewing this series since the first book for the author and he has done a fantastic job with them. I think you would really enjoy them.
