REVIEW: Darkness is a story that is quite disturbing. It is one of the most horrifically marvellous story I have ever read. Eveland started off this story at a neutral pace. But once I started reading it, I found it very hard to slow down my own pace. The storyline is very interesting and unique. This is a different story, written beautifully. All concepts in the book were explored thoroughly, which never left me confused. I read each page with understanding. The characters were well revised and created. I loved all of them, even the villain. Each personality is portrayed as a strong character. The theme of Darkness, I found for the first time ever, to be explored and written about perfectly. The use of terms and the writing shows how the author knew what she was doing. Everything about this novel was EPIC. The plot, the characters, the writing, the title, all the way to the cover, everything was perfect. I found myself skimming through the novel, once I finished, in order to pick out problems, but I just couldn't. Eveland made me live through Catherine's story. Every page, every sentence, every word was real. This is a fantastic read! I loved it!
