    A Deliciously Dark and Sinfully Wicked Thrill Ride

    MALEVOLENT (Darkness, # 1) by Cassia Brightmore March 2, 2015 Publisher: self-published 100 pages, approximately Romance: Dark Thriller, Suspense ** Provided by Author in Exchange for an Honest Review. ** -- SYNOPSIS -- Darkness has a seductive power, a delicious energy that sinks its claws in deep. Once the devil has a hold of you, true malevolence is born. Sheriff Brady James has sworn to protect the small town of Durham Heights, his current priority to ruthlessly hunt a sadistic killer on the loose. With lives at stake, his focus is split between two beautiful women - one dark, one light. The clock is ticking, the threat palpable; crawling closer at every turn. Once death has you in its sights, there is no escape. Pain. Suffering. Lives shattered and broken. In the fight of good against evil, who will survive? This is the first book in the Darkness series, a wishing evil upon others novel that can be read as a standalone. Due to mature content and violent situations, this book is recommended for readers 18 years and up. -------------------------- -- MY THOUGHTS -- Don't let her sweet face fool you... there is a deliciously dark and wickedly twisted mind hiding beneath that adorably innocent facade. Novella length, approximately 100 pages. Chapter One sets the tone for the violently graphic side to this story. If you are squeamish or your senses are easily offended: Do NOT read this. You have been warned. Sexual, physical, mental and emotional abuse do occur, as only one part, in the plot. It's hard to rate the lead characters, as I feel the dark leads play just as an important role as Brady does. Whether it be the bad guys or the good, or even the females and secondary characters, they are are all written very well, each with a distinct and unique personality. The plot is intriguing, it sucks and pulls you in. The ease of flow creates a page-turning thriller that you can't wait to see what happens next in. For being a novella length story, I am extremely surprised by how packed the content is in this story and the characters are richly developed. As a debut novella, this is a fantastic start. I think Ms. Brightmore has a successful future ahead of her with this series if she continues to write at this level and only improves with age and experience. The only less than stellar comment I can make is that I'd figured the general identity of one of the malevolent duo out in the first chapter. The second one I'd bounced between three people, but the correct one of those three was only actually a fleeting thought. Looking back on it, the clues are all there... for the most part. It'll keep you guessing and wanting more! Although the mystery is solved, the case is only partially closed. Predictability is low, if you're not searching every shadow for clues. The conclusion is solid in that the current story is wrapped up well-enough, but there's one element left wide open for the next book to pick up. I'd not call it a full-on cliffhanger, but more an "until next time". ------------------------ Heat Level: 5 WARNING: Sexual encounters range from sweet and chaise to violently graphic and psychotically sadistic. ------------------------ Score: 4.3 Stars: 4 -----------------------

    5 Stars From Sammy's Book Obsession

    MY THOUGHTS~ I was provided with a Review Copy/ARC for review. Wow...this book was fu--messed up! Not in a bad way, but that's the most apt way to describe it that I can think of at the moment. It was most definitely a dark read, but had other elements as well. There is a love story or two in there. I seriously enjoyed it once I got into it. I'm impressed that this is the author's debut novel! The writing was very well done! The story and some of the characters were twisted. I loved the characters though. I'm thinking that this author either has a crazy wicked imagination or she's just plain crazy! Lol You just have to read it to understand why I say that. She's extremely talented, no doubt! This read is probably not for everyone. If the "dark side" intrigues you at all, read this. If not, well....try it anyway! If there is more to come, I will definitely be reading it!
