* * * I give Darkness Brutal by Rachel A. Marks 3 stars.
I should mention that this is the second time I have experienced this book – though the first time, I read it, and this time, I listened to the audiobook. I wanted to read the other books in the series but couldn’t quite remember some important details from this one, so I decided to give it another go. I’ve never reviewed an audiobook before, and it is a different experience since I listened to this while multitasking. But, I found the narrator compelling and enjoyed the book every bit as much as I remembered from two years ago.
What I Liked:
What I Didn’t Like:
Would I Recommend and to Whom:
As mentioned above, the characters talk like teenagers who’ve seen a lot, so there’s swearing and sex is a big theme. I would recommend it to people who enjoy a bit of grit in their YA and who are also fans of supernatural fiction. (Constantine and the like.)
