Magic, learning and young love build while they fight to put back the evil that crawled out and is reeking havoc on their lives.
As a hardcore romance reviewer I love diving into a great YA read and enjoying the refreshing words and innocence. This is one of those reads. I loved Harvey with his awkward ways and naive mind.
I would have loved some more at the end and the emotions experienced needed to be a little bit more but overall this is a great trip through witchcraft and magic.
Some time ago I reviewed K.A.Last's first book Fall for Me as my first ever review of an indie author, and I had a lot of fun reading that book and trying a new genre. That she has written and published other books in the interim really show in her new book about three teens who fall down a hole while on school camp and inadvertently release a dark force into the world with dire consequences. The Lovely Dark actually grabs the reader and pulls them into the story in a way Fall for Me did not.
The plot moves at a fast pace and has just enough scare to make you uncomfortable but not put the book down. The story entwines modern day witch-craft with modern teenage relationships and sucks you in from the first page. The main characters are are well imagined, in fact I am sure they went to my school when I was growing up. The story is told by Harvey, who is a genuinely nice guy who feels awkward in most situations. Not a hero at all! I think many boys will identify with him. His best friend Toni is quirky, the girl many of us were at school, and Lian gives a fresh look at the popular girl. Together they try to right the wrong they have caused in the way only teenagers can, and not always with the best outcome.
I surprisingly enjoyed my dip into the Lovely Dark and think many Young Adult readers will too. Not only will they see themselves and their friends in the book, which adds to the tension as the plot unfolds as they will be able to imagine it is them caught in the Lovely Dark. I also think a lot of grown up children would love this read too, because we all like to remember our high school days and who doesn't enjoy a little scare every now and then?
It flowed well and the characters were entertaining and enjoyable to read.
I highly recommend this if you’re looking for a ya spooky story.
