This book was so different than anything I have read in a long time and I really loved it. The plot and storyline are out there....way out there but in a good kind of way. It's a fresh take on a genre that hasn't felt truly 'inventive' for me in a long time. Don't get me wrong, I am a Paranormal Romance girl, I love all things Vampires, Werewolves, etc...but this was something truly different. The paranormal aspects are based around folklore and the mystical. The book itself had hints of Beauty and the Beast, The Divici Code, A little X-men, Silence of the Lambs feel. It's a mash up of Paranormal Romance, Suspense, Mystery, and Dark Romance...It's a weird amalgamation but man does it work. One thing I will say is that even though there were moments when I was 'Wait, what?' I knew from the get go that the author wasn't going to leave me hanging. She comes at this from a different angle than I think most would but her explanations and line are straight forward....although it might take you a few pages to see the full picture when ever she takes a turn. This book isn't going to hit you head on, it's going to come at you from all sides and like me leave you sitting there staring at it long after you are done. Race the Darkness is a book hangover book, so be prepared!
Why not a 5 star from me then, well....I wanted more. I wanted more of the background story to come through in many different aspects. The relationship between Matt and well, everyone, the relationship between Xander and Kent (I know there was the Camille element but that doesn't truly explain why they have ALWAYS hated one another), the history of the institute...heck Alex and Gale need there own book. Which leads me to another issue, how old exactly is Isleen? If Alex (Xander's dad) was married to Gale (Isleen's grandmother) and Shayla (Isleen's mother) was a young teenager when Xander was a child....wait, how old was Gale? I don't know that whole age thing/relationship muddle confused me. I am hopeful that we will see more Kent (perhaps his own book), I know we will see more Lathan as his book, Hunt the Dawn, is next but it was weird having him pop up with no real understanding of anything about him. He's there, and then he's gone and no one knows a damn thing about him expect....he's got issues (similar to Xander?) and he's a consultant for the FBI, other than that he's a ghost.
This is a fantastic debut from Abbie Roads and has me aching for the next book. I can't imagine this being her debut how amazing future books from her are going to be.
I honestly don't know who to recommend this book to because it has so many elements from different genres that I think it will appeal to a lot of people. It is dark and a bit harsh at times so you definitely need to know that going in. The romance is InstaLove, but there is an explanation for that. Also it revolves around a religious zealot and his (basically) cult so know that going in as well. If you are looking for something that is going to engross your every sense and thought...this is your book!
Isleen Walker, a woman who has been violated by any means necessary while held captive never thought she would be saved, let alone by the man who stars in her dreams of escapism. Fortunately for her, Xander is tangible, corporeal, and more than just a mere hope of illusion. However, evil lurks in unexpected places, waiting to envelope her new found happiness, and seal her fate; death. It will take her unexpected will, her unwavering faith, her tempestuous attitude, her infinite capacity for love, and her unique power to stop the darkness. Furthermore, it will take her and Xander as well as their connection, to serve justice and stop the evil that seeks to claim them both. Will they be able to hold tight to one another and put faith in why they’ve been brought together? You’ll have to read to find out!
If you read it, it will be so worth it! This novel is dark, gritty, disturbing, creepy, sexy, sweet, humorous, and utterly wonderful! There were quite a few twists and turns, which always provides moments of angst while our brains attempt to catch up with the directional change. I had, “What the ****,” moments. I had moments where I smiled. I had moments where I swooned. I had moments where I gasped in shock. I even had moments where I cringed, completely wigged out of my head. Let me tell you, this story has a little bit of everything for everyone. The chemistry was believable because the backstory was beautifully woven in, and I loved every minute of it. I enjoyed all of the secondary characters, especially Kent and Row. Hell, I even loved to hate the snotty, superficial Camille.
I feel as though I’ve been given an opportunity to not only praise a very new author, but the chance to start a journey from the beginning with what I am sure will be an amazing series. This book is not only unlike any other I’ve read, but well-written and enjoyable. I believe that anyone who gives it a chance will find a new favorite author. Abbie is definitely one to watch for! Happy reading!
