A Beautiful Dark

Title: A Beautiful Dark (A Beautiful Dark, #1)
Author: Jocelyn Davies
Edition: eBook


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.

My Thoughts:
When a girl named Skye meets two complete strangers on her seventeenth birthday, her world is turned upside down. As things progressed, she begins doubting her past, and has to make a choice between Devin and Asher, light and dark. So many secrets, so much to loose.

This book was amazing. I loved every single character! The plot/ storyline was written in a way that blew my mind. Now me and my issues with love triangles did not take effect in this book. I actually enjoyed it. Let's start with the characters. Skye, I think Skye was a great heroine! She was enjoyable and her confusion between the two boys did not annoy me. I can't wait to see how her character and powers develop.

The boys...I guess I'll start with Devin. Devin was the quiet, follow every rule kind of boy, but there was something about him that I didn't trust. I enjoyed the parts in the book with him in there. And what's the deal with the Raven girl. I really don't like her and she came out of nowhere. Conniving, evil girl. But Devin, you disappointed me. I had high hopes that you would prove me wrong with the things I felt about you. Not happy with that end performance you gave!!

Asher. Loved him from the get go! Ash you guys know, I love the bad boys! I always root for them. He was fun, wild but caring. You could tell he liked Skye from the beginning. I really liked the relationship they developed with each other! Team Asher over here =).

I want to know what happens next! Can't wait for the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book to anyone who hasn't already read it. Amazing!


  1. I'm glad you loved this but it wasn't my thing. I didn't really like it. The love triangle was too ridiculous and took up the whole book. I was hoping for a little more back story and action.

  2. I am so excited to read this one!

  3. I loved this book so much!!! The concepts were well established and the ending broke my heart! Love the bad boys too - and Asher's name was so close to Ash (*cough* Unseelie Court!!!) that I fell in love with him right away!!! Great review!

  4. I adored this book! Hot guys and great story! Great Review Janina!

  5. Like Jennifer, I also did not like this book.
    I felt there was a love square instead of a triangle which just made everything so complicated.
    Not my cup of tea.
    Beautiful cover though. Does made me think about that quote: Don't judge a book by it's cover.

  6. I haven't heard of this book before. How can that be? It sounds amazing from the review you gave. Skye sounds like a great character and so do the guys!
    Thanks for sharing. Adding this to my wishlist! :D

  7. I loved this book too! The plot was great, the characters and even the romance! I can't wait for the next book and wait to see who she ends up with! Glad you enjoyed it! :D
