Blog Tour: Fire in the Darkness by Stacey Marie Brown--Review & Giveaway!

Fire in the Darkness by Stacey Marie Brown
New Adult Paranormal Romance
Published August 31, 2013 by Twisted Fairy Publishing
It's been four weeks since Ember Brycin witnessed what her powers are capable of. The Electrical Current Storm has turned Seattle, Washington into a natural disaster zone. The death toll is in the thousands with countless others homeless and hungry.
And Ember is the one who caused it. Something she will have to live with every day.
Those people who were unable to escape either turned quickly into gangs or live in shelters. Ember, on the other hand, can’t do either. With a price on her head and a Dark Dweller on her ass, she is constantly on the move. Both Light and Dark are hunting her for their own purpose to use her as a weapon or a pawn in the war between the Unseelie King of the Dark and the Seelie Queen of the Light.
Em needs help but doesn’t know who to trust: Lars, the mystery man Torin told her to find? Torin, the Seelie Queen’s personal knight, who has sworn to keep Em safe? Or Eli, who wants to turn her over to the Unseelie King, but whom she has an undeniable, intense connection with?
No matter what she chooses she will probably lose—her life or everything and everyone she loves.


Review for book one, DARKNESS OF LIGHT

Darkness of Light was a surprisingly enjoyable read. Not that I necessarily doubted that it would be—I love the cover, and the blurb sounded interesting—but it wasn’t very long into the story where I had a suspicion about what Ember is (which I’ll omit for the sake of leaving out spoilers), and this is normally something I am no fan of. The more I suspected it, the more I started to feel like there was a dark cloud over the story, fed by my preconceived notions of the subject.

It’s difficult to review Darkness of Light without mentioning what she is, because it plays such a crucial role, but trust me, this isn’t my type of story, normally.

Somewhere along the way, those preconceived notions dissolved. Eventually I happened to look down at the progress bar on my kindle and realized I was 73% finished, and not only was I not hating it, I was really liking it. I wasn’t even remotely ready for it to be over.

Getting to know these characters and learning about the world that had been hidden from Ember was a fun ride.  I loved the dynamics of Eli’s family, and thought it added an edge that set it apart from many books in this genre. It’s an angle we don’t get to see, much. (I want to tell you what they are….so badly! Ha!) 

If you’re a fan of YA/NA paranormal with wild, erratic romances, I would definitely recommend Darkness of Light.
