Review: Welcome to the Darkness by L.M. Justus

 Welcome to the Darkness

Author: L.M. Justus
Series: Darkness Trilogy, #1
Publication date: August 5th 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal
A typical teenager, seventeen-year-old Reed Hennessy doesn’t realize how lucky he is to lead a normal life until he loses everything, including his humanity. The attacker who slaughters his family and destroys their home turns out to be a vampire, a creature Reed had considered a myth.

Now a vampire himself, but with the unique ability to walk in sunlight, Reed struggles in the dark underworld he didn’t even know existed. His only two allies in his fight to stay alive are his reluctant mentor, Nathaniel, a vampire with over two hundred years’ worth of emotional baggage, and Sarah, a rookie cop with a secret ability of her own.

Together, Reed and his companions face a harrowing, cross-country journey before stumbling into a plot which could mean the end of everything for humans and vampires alike.

Well as an unoffical expert on vampire themed everything especially books. There was nothing out of ordinary. I am not saying that it was bad, just that it wasn't good either. It was so so-so that I cannot describe it completely. The characthers were not shallow but they were not deep also. The problems they encountered were way too easy to solve so it seemed like nothing happened. I believe that for a book to be exciting the writer has to outsmart us. The story has to be clever and it has to keep us wondering. It has to keep us on our toes. It has to be full of suprises. It has to be just like love. Well this wasn't. It was a light read nothing unexcaptable. If you have time you may read it.
