What a refreshing read!
"A Brush of Darkness" is now on my top list.
When I received this in the mail, I was stoked. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Although I wasn't sure what the expect from it, I knew it sounded interesting. Soon in, I realized I would be hooked, and now I'm left begging for more!
It took me a few chapters to get relaxed and clued in to the history with the world Pang has written. Once I got use to it, everything started to unravel I couldn't get enough.
Abby Sinclair is a unique character. She was a bit mysterious for the first few chapters, with a a lack of background besides knowing she was roped into a relationship as a touchstone, and treated badly by a male, but once I felt I got even a bit use to her as a character, I loved her. She is a touchstone for Moria(who is fey...and who happens ot be more than just a regular faery.) I got a kick out of the enchanted iPod and that she listens to Tom Jones on it. She'd be someone I'd love to hang out with for sure.
As for secondary characters, The unicorn was a hoot! He reminded me of Jenks from the Hallows a bunch. He really perked up the read as well.
Brystion is a hunk. He's mysterious, handsome, and has a sense of humor. He's a male herione along the lines of Barrons, V`Lane or Curran. I'm left wanting more, more, more! We had much Brystion time, which I loved, but I find I'm really wanting more of Moria's brother time! I can't wait to see what happens with him and Abby.
As for the storyline, I honeslty loved it. You'll feel love, hate, terror and betryal. You'll get action, suspense, horror and romance. The Dream skeme is fresh and interesting. I love that there's many supernatural beings. Too many to even name..
This Urban Fantasy is one for the collection. A great read, recommeded to all Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance readers!
