Blog Tour: Darker Days Review and GIVEAWAY

Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...

When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.

Seven deadly ones, in fact.

They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...

There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.

My Thoughts:

I loved Jus Accardo's debut novel Touch and even though I wasn't a HUGE fan of the sequel I know that she's a great author that is why I've been interested in this novel ever since the blurb came out.

Darker Days is a great book and has restored my faith in the author. I'm definitely going to read more books by her now! I would like to warn you though, that there are quite a few similarities between some of characters in Touch and Darker Days. One thing I noticed was how just like Kale , Lukas was naive and didn't know how the modern world worked but I was enjoying the novel so much that I was willing to look these over .

I loved Jessie.She's snarky,sarcastic and has awesome one liners.I love the fact that she's not concerned with dating and doesn't keep talking about hot guys all the time. The girl is not superficial and I love that about her. I would suggest you read this novel just for her.

Another thing I would like to mention is the fact that parents do play a pretty large role in the novel which was nice.Damien (Jessie's father) is one character I would love to see more of in the sequel. For some reason I really like him.

There were quite a few twists and turns especially towards the end of the novel.I couldn't predict almost any of them .

This book reminded me a little bit of the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent but it isn't as serious as that series so if you're looking for something like it you could check out this book.

Overall,I for one am dying to read the sequel.

My Rating:

I'm bending more towards the 4 stars though

  2. I haven't read anything by Jus Accardo yet, but I have heard only great things about her work. It's nice that this book helped restore your faith in her stories :). I know how much you like the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent, since it must have been extra nice to read a book that's similar in tone. I hope that the sequel lives up to your expectations!

  3. I haven't heard much about this one at all, but I'm glad to see you enjoyed it for the most part. I think I'll wait to see how the rest of the series shapes up before deciding completely whether or not it's for me. Great review!(:

  4. Awesome review, I will be reading this in October and it will be my first Accardo book. You have me anxious to give it a try.

    ps. Somehow you commented on my blog using Discus, which I no longer have, since I moved to self-host WP a month ago..LOL So I was unable to respond back to your comment. Can you tell me how you commented? Was it from Discus dashboard?

    1. No .. No it just came as comment with disqus on the post itself . I didn't do anything differently . I just visited your website and commented normally

  11. This sounds like a fun read with a likable main character. It's nice to have parents play an important role, especially in YA since it's so unheard of lately. Great review! :)

  12. Great review! I loved Touch too, but I guess the innocent guy and snarky heroine didn't stick with me that much so I don't feel the urge to read the sequels. But Darker Days sounds so interesting! Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. Great review. I am glad you liked it. I enjoyed the Touch series to.

  14. Sounds like a really good book. I always love books that have characters like Jessie.
