I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this suspense-filled novel rich in themes of light and dark, family, love, loyalty, and self-respect. This story has a rich blend of a thriller woven with fantasy and ancient Native American culture.

Eli is a complex character with a dark past who has to deal with making the right choices for himself and others, while weighing consequences that threaten the man he wants to be.

This fascinating story was well paced and beautifully written with characters that came alive on the page. I was easily able to see the scenes as the action unfolded. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and hope to read more of Darcia’s Helle’s work. A highly recommended novel by a skilled storyteller.

I found Eli’s Coming: Chasing the Night, by Darcia Helle, to be a captivating introduction to the world of Dark Fantasy. Ms. Helle cleverly provides the reader with two sets of characters – the regular folk who fight their way through life without possessing otherworldly powers, and a second group who, at first glance, seem normal, but actually possess a variety of intriguing abilities. The interaction between the normal folk and the not so normal folk kicks things off, but we soon learn that some of the supernatural people have betrayed their mandate to use their powers for good, and are bent on destruction. The interaction between these three groups creates overwhelming tension that quickly draws the reader into the peculiar and strangely satisfying world the author creates. This is a 5-Star read and I strongly recommend it!

Reviewed on behalf of Rosie Amber's review team

I chose to read this book from the review team list because I had read another of Darcia Helle's books, underworld crime thriller Killing Instinct, and loved it. Eli's Coming, however, comes under the genre headings of supernatural/dark fantasy; I'd mistakenly thought it was a psychological thriller with a supernatural slant, but the fantasy side of it is the main element of the story. My error!

Amanda becomes involved with the mysterious Eli who has secrets and demons, which are revealed to the reader gradually; I liked the way Ms Helle did this, highly effective, allowing just enough information to seep out at a time to maintain interest. It worked! I thought the characterisation of the tormented, isolated Eli was most convincing. There is a more real life element to the beginning of the story, too, with Amanda's frustration about her domestic situation, and her relationship with her parents. Her mother has Alzheimer's; this was represented with care and realism.

A hint: at 99%, ie, after the end of the book, there is an information section about the Native American people who were the inspiration for this story. I'd advise you skip to the end and read this as soon as they are mentioned, as it will make the story mean more.

Ms Helle is a competent writer and I would imagine that this book will fulfil all the requirements of dark fantasy addicts. Alas, I am not one, so I did not enjoy the book as much as I had hoped, but this is not a reflection on the standard of the writing. I enjoyed the first 20% very much, when it was more about Amanda and her father and friend, but the two elements did not mesh well together, for me. Having enjoyed Killing Instinct so much I would definitely read another of her books, but will stick to her crime novels from now on.

Eli's Coming by Darcia Helle

Eli’s has a secret ability he feels it's a curse. A life of violence and heartache leaves him with nothing. Then he meets Amanda. He falls for her, and she for him. But he has to face some tough choices. Soon she will learn the truth about Eli and she is in danger. Will Eli make the right choices? Can he lead a "normal" life?

A well written supernatural thriller. I really like Eli, he may be flawed but that is what made him "real". Amanda is just as likable, she accepts Eli for who he is. The plot is original, the characters are well developed. The pace moves smooth and there is an even mix of thrills, laughter, suspense, danger and love.

I am a huge fan of Darcia Helle, and she did not disappoint with Eli's coming. I feel that those who love a great thrilling, fantasy will enjoy Eli's coming. ( I also like the cover it adds mystery and suspense to a fantastic story).

"Eli's Coming" by Darcia Helle is an exciting, fast paced thriller, with elements of romance, the supernatural and fantasy.

Eli Hayes has a dark, mysterious past, which he hopes he has left behind, especially so now that he has met Amanda, with whom he has fallen in love. Eli's secrets begin to surface when his father escapes from a secure hospital and as the story unfolds, we fall deeper and deeper into Eli's secret life.

I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent, well written thriller. I particularly liked the way that the author portrayed her characters. They were well rounded and there was nothing two dimensional about them. Even the minor characters came to life for me.

Darcia Helle is such a talented author. Her plots are gripping and her characters, interesting and real. I am already looking forward to the next book in the series
