Free download A Beautiful Dark

Caught in the middle of an ancient battle one that began untold millennia ago Torn between unpredictable Asher whom she loves and the infuriating Devin who she can’t stay away from her fate is murky as a starless night And as the secrets of her true identity are revealed Skye realizes that her destiny may reside in the Heavens or somewhere darker Disclaimer This review is based off the Uncorrected Proof available on Net Galley This is a debut novel so I will attempt to curb my ire because I know how difficult it is to compose a story especially if it is the first time you are doing so There will be no vitriol no vituperation Simply a statement of my reaction and perhaps a mini rant when it is unavoidableThis book is about angels Just so you know and are prepared But before we get to the plot let s talk about the writing It is extremely raw Ambiguous Cluttered Grammatically creative heh I may read the finished copy to see if the writing issue has been corrected because I really don t think it s fair to judge a book by its uncorrected proof However since it was available for review in that form I am forced to say that the writing would benefit from a lot work than it has gotten I usually am not picky about sentence structure etc but when the writing interferes with my understanding of the story I have to speak out I would give examples but again I don t want to uote from the proof Before I talk about the mythology and other aspects of the novel let me address the one issue that made me want to scream into a pillow so I wouldn t scare my family The whole love what would it be There were five no six people in this love hexagon Let me take a deep breath Okay Let s goIan The reuisite nice guy who loves the protagonist silently and not so silently but is ultimately treated like yesterday s lunch and gets lost somewhere in the narrative He s palatable actually And kinda nice Only thing is he doesn t sparkle or have wings and therefore does not have a hope against the sparklier beingsDevin He s much appealing of the two but only till you encounter the twist and then it goes all south Predictably he s beautiful and has a beautiful fated one with whom he is supposed to spend eternity Ash Wow I hated this guy I hated him to the point that bile rose in my throat every time I had to read a scene with him in it He s basically has no ualms using other girls to amuse himself while he waits for Skye to take notice of him become jealous His callousness towards girls does not win him any points Plus when he says to that Skye wearing a tank top in front of him suggests that she WANTS his attention well that just made me want to hurl And you know what it brought to mind The whole debate of how women are asking to be raped because of the clothes they wear or their lascivious actions Yeah no Just No Ellie She s a cardboard character Nothing elseSkye Yeah The main character whom I did not like at all In fact her waffling between all the guys made me want to smack her silly on than one occasion And then she says something to the effect of Ellie latching on to guys she had an interest in As though that was such a bad thing And it s not exactly as if Ash was protesting overmuch you know The only reason Skye makes that comment is because she doesn t want Ash not while she s deciding between the other members of her fast growing harem but she doesn t want anyone else to have him either Because it may be true love you knowThe book does not bring anything new and fresh to the genre It is simply the same old story of one heroine being fought over by two different factions wrapped up in a different package The mythology is barely explained and while in the end the thread of the narrative gains a spark it is too late to save the novel Being angelic is so much than having powers Why do they have powers Why is that uestion not answered It also angered me that the book reasserts the status uo where gender politics is concerned The real bad guy is the girl to whom Devin is fated to be with It is Vicky who is the negative character while the boys retain their prettiness and become tortured by the dueling nature of their mission and the feelings they have for Skye The novel takes the Mean Girl trope to a whole new level and leaves me unimpressedSo there you have it My review I really don t like writing negative reviews especially when it s a debut novel but I think for an artist to hone their craft they need to work at it And this book needs a lot work where character development and plot are concerned The writer also needs to become aware of the subtext and what she may be saying without explicitly saying it The Dauntless (Spy Girl Book 5) (English Edition) of an ancient battle Soulbinder
