Overall Rating 3.5 out of 5 Stars
Jordan Lane has a certain talent, one that she isn’t even aware of completely. She can master dreams and that makes her quite interesting to Malcolm Rook. He’s trying to recruit people that can do just that. Plus, there is just something about her that seems to ignite his long-dormant passions. But Jordan is resistant- a life of responsibility and heartache keeps her own growing passions in check, but for how long? Dreams, nightmares, and lust combine and ignite in a firestorm neither Malcolm or Jordan expect.
Darkness Falls is the first installment in the Reveler Series by Erin Kellison, a paranormal romance series that explores the idea that there are people with the natural talent to manipulate dreams, and the world contained within them. However, she takes a somewhat unique twist on it, adding the element of a commercial enterprise- one where people of all walks of life- talented or not, can enjoy shared dreams and fantasies. It’s the latest craze, the latest addiction. It’s a very engaging concept and one that I haven’t seen treated in such a way for a long time.
The plot is tightly written, and the story moves along at a refreshingly quick pace. The details are sparse, but potent and the reader is pulled easily into the world. The main characters were fairly well fleshed out with both flaws and tarnished virtues included in the mix.
I will admit, that where the story ended was a bit of a disappointment; the author (or perhaps the publisher) ended the story must end at a more climatic point. I would have liked to see the story continue a bit further if only to bring the story to a satisfying conclusion if nothing else. I understand the marketing ploy being used, but I still find it quite annoying as a reader. However, since I liked how the story was written and found the characters to be engaging, my annoyance with such a tactic was somewhat diminished.
