Book Description

They say “third time’s the charm,” and for sixteen-year-old Brooke Day, they had better be right. She’s been here before, twice in fact, and so has the darkness awaiting her return.

When Brooke is forced to leave Boston for the village of Deadwich, she thinks her life is over. New friends become estranged—downright evil. But worse, recurring nightmares become reality.

Enter Marcus Knight; he’s popular, hot, and the only person Brooke can trust. Not to mention, they’ve shared the same nightmares.

With the discovery of an ancient Celtic amulet, Brooke and Marcus unravel the secrets ofher past, revealing the path to her future.

As the equinox approaches, darkness and light merge for the first time in a century. Soul-mates reunite. Magic awakens.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"I loved this story. Not only did it have witches (which is by far my fav) but this was a sweet love story as well. One about reincarnation. In fact it just might be my favorite reincarnation story I have read yet." - My Guilty Obsession.

"I haven't been addicted to a book this much since I read the Twilight books back before they had all the hype. So Twilight series aside this book was AMAZING!" - Crossroad Reviews.

"For anyone who thought Twilight was the best book they read, haven't read The Gathering Darkness. Perfect for teens, with some love and suspense. Definitely worth reading!" - Rosie Reeves

"I wanted to preview this book as a possible addition to my classroom library. I'm always looking for current novels to hook my high school readers. This is one I will be recommending to my students." - S O'Donnell

"The Gathering Darkness is an enthralling surprise, and has a storyline that's packed with mystery, suspense, magic, and a beautiful romance. I recommend The Gathering Darkness as a fantastic read!" - I Heart YA Books

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough! September 27, 2012

Page turner! Very hopeful that this turns into a series!
It was so easy to slip into the character while reading- and who doesn't enjoy a romantic entanglement?

4.0 out of 5 stars nice read about witches October 27, 2012
Format:Paperback
Brooke doesn't want to be in Deadwich, but that doesn't mean she can leave. Her parents have shipped her off, but that just might be fate playing more of a role than anything. In deadwich she has to confront the nightmares she always had had there and soon finds she is not the only one with nightmares. The introverted twin Marcus Knight, might just be the answer to her dreams in more way than one- if she can live long enough to find out.

I liked that it was a complete book- there were no cliff hangers, nothing that was left untold that distracted from the story. Loose ends were finished and you left the last page feeling like a complete story had been told. Very nice job and refreshing when everyone now is building on cliffhangers.

What I disliked was some of the obviousness- while the author did great at keeping hints hidden making for a nice suprise when you learn the details, other instances it was not. The main characters had the same last name as their past lives yet no one else was as obvious.

Recommendation: Yes, it was a good read about witches with a bit of suspense and mystery, but nothing too scary to turn me away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book! I really enjoyed it. October 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This review can be found on my website: [...]

Synopsis: 16 year old Brooke Day has been packed her off by her parents to live with her aunt, uncle and cousin in the coastal Massachusetts town of Deadwich. Brooke likes her relatives but doesn't like living there because whenever she goes to bed, she has horrible nightmares where she's surrounded in darkness.

At her new high school, Brooke quickly garners the attention of popular twins Evan and Marcus Knight, but while Evan is charismatic and more friendly, she is immediately drawn to Marcus. In the midst of her nightmares, she hears his voice calling out and soothing her fears, but in the daytime, it is Evan who showers her with attention.

She, her cousin Sammy and the twins all work at the Ravenwyck Inn, a creepy house owned by an even creepier old woman, Maggie, who scares Brooke. Brooke can sense the evil coming off of Maggie, but no one else seems to.

Brooke's nightmares continue until she gets lost on an island during a party and falls into an abandoned well. When Marcus rescues her, she finds an amulet which makes her nightmares ease up. But while her dreams are now safe, her daytime life gets harder as suddenly her cousin and new friends turn evil under Maggie's influence and Marcus is the only one she can trust.

Brooke's and Marcus's past lives are catching up with them and they have to try and stay alive while the witches they've wronged and fought against before try to get revenge.

My Thoughts: First, I want to say that after reading 4 of Curiosity Quills Press's books, I find that I really enjoy them. Looking forward to see what else they publish! Now on to The Gathering Darkness...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Magical Read November 20, 2012
By PamM
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley for an honest review. Brooke is sent Deadwich from Boston cause she can't seem to stay out of trouble. Sent to live with her uncle and aunt she is feeling like her life us over. She soon begins to make some new friends including her cousin. She also has an immediate connection with a boy name Marcus. One problem with Marcus is his brother seems to think Brooke and he are a couple. Soon all her new friends begin to turn against her except Marcus. As they grow closer danger seems to be getting closer as well. Someone doesn't want them together or Brooke to live. As they begin to unravel the mystery they discover many things about their past and the witch hunting them.

Brooke is a good character. She has done wrong and been in trouble but after being down for a short while she tries to move on with her life. Even when her new friends turn on her she still moves on. Marcus is a great male character. He seem broody and dark but in truth this guy is a sweetheart. I love him and the things he does to show Brooke he cares.

The book did start a little slow at first but once it took off i was hooked. I did not want to put it down. It has witches and even some fairies in it that make it a tad different and great. The romance is so sweet and true you can't help to fall in love as the characters do. I love the plot and how smoothly it flows. Very easy to read and I really didn't want it to end. it has plenty of action so if that is something you love you will get that as well. As the characters past lives start to unravel it really makes you know more and feel more for each of the characters even the bad ones. If you are looking for a magical, true love story with lots of goodness to enchant you pick this book up.
