Yep, I found the first one that satisfying that I moved straight onto the second. It was a good sequel and remained just as entertaining as its predecessor, neither worsening or improving. So far, it seems that this is a very consistent series.

Beautiful Darkness follows in the aftermath of Lena’s birthday. She and Ethan are trying to come to terms with a loss and Lena is still freaking out about whether she’ll turn light or dark. She starts pulling away from Ethan, who doesn’t entirely understand the events that unfolded on her birthday. With Lena’s coldness he is left to figure things out on his own, which becomes that bit more difficult when Liv arrives in town. Continue reading

That is, of course, until Lena Duchannes comes to town. She and Ethan have a strange connection where they share the same dreams and start kelting with each other. All of a sudden, Gatlin has become unrecognisable. Continue reading

I know, I know. It’s been a while. Some of you might even see this pop up in your email and think ‘what the hell is Anyonething?’ I may not have been posting much, but I have been reading, so you can expect a few more reviews.

The first of which is Kelley Armstrong’s collaboration with Melissa Marr. You all know I love Armstrong’s books, she’s a very strong writer and usually comes equipped with very strong characters. You might also remember I love mythology, so immediately I thought this would be a brilliant combination….I even said so on Goodreads. Unfortunately it proved to be disappointing. Continue reading
