Review: A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies

On the night of Skye’s seventeenth birthday, she meets two enigmatic strangers. Complete opposites—like fire and ice—Asher is dark and wild, while Devin is fair and aloof. Their sudden appearance sends Skye’s life into a tailspin. She has no idea what they want, or why they seem to follow her every move—only that their presence coincides with a flurry of strange events. Soon she begins to doubt not just the identity of the two boys, but also the truth about her own past.

In the dead of a bitingly cold Colorado winter, Skye finds herself coming to terms with the impossible secret that threatens to shatter her world. Torn between Asher, who she can’t help falling for, and Devin, who she can’t stay away from, the consequences of Skye’s choice will reach further than the three of them could ever imagine.
A Beautiful Dark is the first book in a captivating trilogy by debut author Jocelyn Davies.

 For being a debut novel it is really good. It held my attention the whole way through. It does not fall flat at any point. A very inventive storyline. I love the way the author tells a story. It is loaded with unforeseen twists and turns. There is a mystery quality as well. The plot develops right before your eyes but still has hidden issues. It is a great combination of many factors. The personalities of the characters make them come alive. Before you know it you are rooting for one side or the other. Not all discussions are easy ones to make. I truly hope there will be a sequel. I am impatiently waiting to get my hands on one. I Loved It !!
