Darkness of Light (Darkness Series Book 1) by Stacey Marie Brown

Darkness of Light (Book 1): DOWNLOAD IT FO FREE ON AMAZON NOW!

Description: Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo. 

Ember Brycin has been called them all. She’s always known she’s different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her. 

When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for troubled teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who’s hot as hell and darkly mysterious. Their connection is full of passion, danger, and secrets. Secrets that will not only change her life, but what and who she is—leading her down a path she never imagined possible. 

Between Light and Dark, Ember finds a world where truth and knowledge are power and no one can be trusted. But her survival depends on finding out the truth about herself. In her pursuit, she is forced between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren’t always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she’ll definitely wish she could.

Stars: 3

Honestly, I am so glad I didn't spend any money on this book. Buttttt, with saying that, I HAVE TO BUY THE SECOND BOOK... Let me explain. I could have done without the first 3/4th's of this book. In the first 3/4th's of the book, the ONLY vital information you need to know is that Ember is not normal, she can make things blow up when she gets mad. She does this to her school so they send her away to juvie. She meets a hottie in juvie and they have the "typical" relationship of 
1. They hate each other but are drawn to one another.
2. He shows her a teensy bit of kindness then shuts her down.
3. She's mad at him.
4. He shows her a teensy bit of kindness then shuts her down.
5. She's mad at him.
6.He shows her a teensy bit of kindness then shuts her down.
7. She's mad at him.

That was honestly the first 3/4th's of the book. It was just unnecessary. I wished the author would have made the first quarter of the book that and thennnnn get to the part where she gets attacked by Eli's brother. THAT is where it started getting good. After Ember was attacked and taken away was when it reallllly started getting good... good enough for me to want to check out the second book. I don't think I'll read the next book (Fire in the Darkness) right away, but I will definitely check it out. It has great reviews on goodreads. I just hope that it doesn't take most of the book to actually get into the story like this book did.
