One thing I look for in books is original, unpredictable storylines because I like a book that pulls me in from the first page and doesn't let me go. I often put books down after a few pages because I'm not hooked or because I feel I'm reading the same old story. Downfall hooked me. You won't be able to predict what's happening (I tried and failed!) and you'll be captivated by the story unfolding in front of you. The writing is beautiful, the author definitely has a talent for crafting words to draw the reader into the mysterious world she creates. Her characters have personalities and flaws, and I loved watching Frankie's character grow. In fact, SD Wasley has a talent for fleshing out all of her characters - the minor characters are also well-rounded. The group with their mysterious powers and connections were all individuals. There's no cliffhanger here but I can't wait to find out what's in store for this amazing set of characters in the next book. 5 star recommended read!
Cons: Too much sitting and talking and thinking in uncomfortable situations. I thought the MC was stupid for going back to that awful place with those sketchy people over and over again just to see a super hot guy who might be a drug dealer. (YA readers: DON'T DO THAT. Hotness is temporary; sketchiness is forever.) Especially while refusing to tell her concerned family anything. Lots of "I love _____ so much, and that's why I did this totally unrelated thing without communicating." And it really threw me when they started using British slang in the middle of the book. I didn't see that in the beginning, and suddenly it was so thick that I was googling words. All the character voices in my head and cultural backgrounds had to shift, and I spent the rest of the time googling places to figure out where we were. No satisfaction to that end.
How six words can change your life and view of world? Read Downfall and find out.
Downfall is the first book by S.D. Wasley I have read. How much I loved this book? From the first line I was hooked. Once you start reading you can't stop.
Characters are very well written. Plot has lots of twists and turns, and every time I thought I knew what was going to happen... i was wrong.
Love the mystery and how author leads your imagination in opposite directions of their true nature (uh is hard not to spoil).
Cant wait for book 2 of The Incorruptibles!
I really wanted to like this book. It started out with some action which compelled this reader forward, but I soon had to stop because it became obvious that one of the character's goal was to get the main character to "loosen up" to the point of under age drunkenness and losing her virginity. Being frustrated with this character being a major character and a likeable one at that, I couldn't finish. I just don't agree that "loosening" up must entail a loss of morals. I don't agree with sex before marriage period, but this instance just hit me hard, possibly because of the source, the circumstances the advice came in and how early the subject came up in the book.
She meets her best friend from school, Jude and is introduced to Cain, two other friends and Gaunt House. Strange things are happening with all of them.
I was hooked from the beginning ! It is a love story, a mystery and more! I really enjoyed the book and would highly recommend it! The second book is coming out later this month and I will be reading it! Great job S. D. Wasley!
I was given this book for a honest opinion.

Who wouldn't be drawn in with such notions to start you off into the story of Frankie ...
Woven with beautiful words and sentences, twists in the plot that draw you in, its a difficult book to put aside even for a short lunch break ...
The story unfolds in waves that seemingly welcome you unknowingly into a romantic sojourn into young breathtaking love experienced with a vulnerability that aches amidst a backdrop of a paranormal landscape that continues to haunt me ... It feels real ... I'm just there in it ...
SD Wasley is a mistress of this genre indeed ... I cannot wait for the arrival of Book Two ...
One of the benefits of this is that I was lucky enough to read this excellent story in detail before it was available to everyone.
The story in DOWNFALL is thought provoking and interesting with characters that are easy to identify with and like but complex enough to wonder what is really going on with them all. They all seem to have their little mysteries and I can’t wait to find out more about them. Who are they and maybe even a bigger question WHY are they?
The story is both a mystery thriller and a paranormal romance that is at once quite grounded in the real world but with enough hints to push things into the ethereal.
I recommend this book to those that like their romance with some meat and their paranormal with a twist of mystery.
