The Darkest Light Reviews
It might not have the best grammar or anything, but I had a lot of fun writing it and I feel like that in and of itself is worth a 5 star rating from me lolwww.ashleyearley.comwww.ashleyearleybooks.blogspot.comwww.ashleyearleybooks.tumblr.comhttp://infinitybookreview.blogspot.com/Follow me on Twitter: @ashleyc_earleyAnd Instagram: ashley_earley
*Copy provided in exchange for honest review*3.7 stars!I deeply enjoyed this debut novel! It was not what I expected, in a good way. Mythical creatures came to life and I was so shocked! The main character was battling depression at the beginning and it made it easy for me to relate to her off the bat. The imagination put into the world-building was precious! On the other hand, little bits were repetitive with some grammar errors. I wasn't too sure that what Wesley and Alyssa had was "love" but there was definitely a bond there. I was bummed not to have seen much of Archer but oh well, I was glad he was in the story at all. It didn't really look like Alyssa had any feelings for Archer, she only thought about Wesley and that's fine with me but I just wouldn't call it a love triangle. Also, nobody learns to shoot an arrow and wield a sword so expertly in a day so that made it a little unbelievable that she was battling at all. There were some unanswered questions too but nothing monumental.Technicalities and love triangles aside, for a debut, I enjoyed it immensely! I wasn't let down! This was a light and fun read. I would definitely read more of Ashley! Keep up the great work!
Dear Author Ashley Earley,If you ever noticed this review, notif me ‘cause I would want to know! I love this story so much that I still suffer.. well, maybe not suffer… let’s use the word ‘miss’, I still miss Alyssa and Gran. The way they actually wake up everyday just to go the otherworld. Love it! I promised you a review and soo!! This is it. Hope you appreciate it.~Bea FloresBefore anything else, I just wanna tell or atleast share a fact to y’all reading. How did I ever get the chance to read this book? I’m not the kind who will actually buy ebooks ‘cause I definitely prefer physical copy. But since Author Ashley Earley gave some of the bookworms a chance to read it for free… and so I grabbed the chance. I didn’t regret it anyway. It was worth the night. Yes! I always read this book during the night or might as well… during 3:00am. I don’t know why but I just kind of feel like reading it through the dawn. Maybe because it happens a lot at the same time. Okay! SO, real book review is here.I really enjoyed reading this book. Not only because I’m interested in such genre but because the plot was really good and the characters made me feel like I’m with them. That’s what I’m looking for when reading books. Not literally friendship but a relation or just like in the book… connection.At first, I didn’t like the idea of Alyssa having her own dragon and their connection. But as I continue to read the book, I somehow enjoyed the presence of Cascade. She’s awesome and I love that she’s blue. I always loved the color blue.I was definitely into the scene where Alyssa’s trying to battle with depression and at the same time… going thru the feeling where she don’t know what or who to believe. I mean, she used to live in the human world then suddenly she’ll discover that she’s different. Who would have thought the the characters that she watches within movies exist in their world? If I were her, I wouldn’t go back to the human world. I would cherish every moment.Moving on, I didn’t like the affection between Wesley and Alyssa. I ship Archer and Alyssa! But anyways! I love the story as it is.Over all, I didn’t have any negative reactions to the story. And about Archer, I just really adore characters that are cold and doesn’t express feelings verbally but thru actions. I always fall inlove with actions. The fact that Author Ashley Earley keeps the readers in the dark makes me feel more exciting about how the story would end.I give this book a 5 stars out of 5! The book is an easy and fast read but very amusing. Just wanna tell that this book deserves a sequel.
Actual rating: 3.5 stars. Filled with action, adventure, and romance, The Darkest Light captivates from the start. As soon as you meet the protagonist, Alyssa, you fall into her life, and her world. She is fighting depression and still constantly thinking of her father, who died in a car crash, and you can’t help but feel bad for her unfortunate situation. Her mother, in an attempt to help Alyssa regain her equilibrium, brings her to Alyssa’s grandmother’s house.Which is how Alyssa finds out about Föld. Föld was a beautifully written world, full of elves, dragons, and other magical beings. If I could relate this to another book that I have read, I would say it resembled fablehaven in a lot of ways (which was a favorite of mine when I was younger). In Föld, Alyssa finds out all about her destiny. Being part elf, she is welcomed into Föld, but in order to be fully accepted she has to go through a choosing, where she can either be chosen by the elves that fight and strive for darkness, or the elves that fight for the light.I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Darkest Light. The romance was innocent and adorable, and the action was intense and heart-pounding. I did, however, find the genre to be a little confusing and misleading.While reading this book, I found that it more closely resembled a middle grade book. There were no swear words. The romance was almost as innocent as it could get (few kisses here and there, but none too intense or descriptive) and it was an easier read. Only until the last one hundred or so pages, where it started to become a little more Young Adult when some swear words started popping up(d-word, s-word, nothing too bad.) So I would say it’s an easier, relaxing YA book, or a Middle Grade for more mature readers who are okay with a few swear words.The last thing that I would say about The Darkest Light is that it is a good book when you are looking to escape your current reality, but don’t want to invest yourself with something extreme of a book. BIG THANK YOU TO ASHLEY EARLEY FOR A REVIEW COPY!
Thanks so much to the author for sending me a copy of this book to review. All opinions are my own.Ok, so this book!At first, I had troubles getting into it. I was a little nit-picky and annoying, if you read my updates, you'll know. But it started to pick up and I began to enjoy it more.I think the concept behind this story was very interesting, and the fact that it's a standalone was really amazing. You don't typically find a fantasy standalone.I liked Alyssa's character for the most part, I felt like the depression aspect was a little shallow, and not really shown, but then again, this is not a contemporary about mental illness.Wesley was just ahh! I'm a sucker for the name Wes and he was just so sweet and southernly. I liked Archer, but I didn't see the romance there. I was expecting a love triangle but I don't think we saw enough of Archer to warrant a romantic relationship.As far as the writing itself goes, it was good. A little average, but good. There were a few editing issues, and tense issues but I was usually able to get over them. Overall, I enjoyed this book.
This book sounds great! I hope to win, read it and enjoy the story ... If I win, the review will be updated once I finish the book :)
I loved this book. Anyone who loves fantasy and magical beings should read this
This book intrigued me and kept my attention...look forward to reading the next one.
