Book Review: Darkness: The Brookehaven Vamipres, #2

Today's review is on Darkness: The Brookehaven Vampires, #2 by Joann I. Martin Sowles

After waiting so long for this second installment in the Brookehaven series, I am left with mixed feelings. One thing for certain is that compared to Laney; in my opinion, Darkness is basically a flop.

Laney was so needy and whiny throughout the entire book, and because it has taken so long for this book to come out, I couldn't remember if she was as bad in the first one. Though there were moments between her and Oliver that were exciting, most of the time it was pretty boring.

Though the book description makes it seem bigger than it actually is, Laney did suffer from a traumatic event. Without knowing exactly who the perp. responsible is, Oscar is suspected to be involved.

After being bitten by a werewolf, Carter struggles to recover. No one in the group knows what will happen when the Full Moon rises, and when it does everyone is surprised with the outcome.

There were ample opportunities in Darkness where the author could have "run with it", but unfortunately she didn't. This, along with the massive amount of editing mistakes, Darkness shouldn't even earn 2 stars, but I'm feeling generous today.

I sincerely hope for two things in regards to the next book in the series:
             1. That it doesn't take as long as Darkness to come out.
             2. That it get some serious editing done.

2 of 5 stars
