Edge of Darkness (Submit to Darkness Book 1) – AJ Spencer

This story was a great read for me, and I had in finished within 24 hours. It is fast-paced, with characters that are well-developed and detailed descriptions that easily have you watching this story in your mind as you are reading it. You can see the characters, and you have empathy for them. Well, some of them. Derik Ryder; not so much.

Edge of Darkness Cover

Natasha Stolt is new on the case of the Serial Killer known to the public as Grimm, due to his fascination with staging his victims in a Fairy Tale type of scene, making a point that Natasha recognizes right away.

Her partner, Giovanni Tagliente, seems to have something to hide. I have a feeling book 2 is going to be a bit more sinister than this, and the lines are going to be drawn in the sand between what is good, and what is evil, and exactly where Natasha stands on that line between darkness and good.

I will certainly be finishing the next two books of this story; it is spectacularly written with a storyline and plot that will have many looking deep inside themselves to see if they are 100 percent sure of exactly where they stand on that line between darkness and good as well.

(This book comes with a warning disclaimer due to the graphic nature and violence of the story. It is justly earned so if reading graphic novels that include violence against women in every possible sense of the word is upsetting to you, this book is not for you).

The Books and Authors I Have Gathered Up So Far!

Okay, so nobody panic. I have it all under control. I will be posting below the authors and their books that I have gathered up today, so they know I will be reviewing their work. I do not have a Kindle, but luckily I can use their free app to read the stories. On my Nook HD πŸ™‚Β I am currently reading “Freecurrent; The Legacy” by Deanna J. Compton. This is the first of three books in this series, but I will be reading other stories in between. She is an author from my hometown in Michigan, and I met her this summer at a local festival.

I am also still 2 weeks out from finishing my last class of the year for my MBA. So, that does put a small crimp in my reading time. But have no fear; I love to read. I can read a book in a day. I do not read more than one book at a time. I have tried this before, and it just makes both stories less enjoyable. I do not speed read, skip paragraphs, chapters, or go to the back to see how it ends. I thoroughly read each book, enjoying every moment of everything that is going on. For me, reading is my escape; to quietness, different places, different worlds; where I get to meet people that become important to me (we will not even begin discussing my love for Harry Potter!)

I have also sent some of you emails letting you know I have your books, but for some reason yahoo is not giving me the “message sent” box, so I am thinking it is not going through. The emails I forwarded to my work email this morning did not show up either.

If your name and book are below, I have your story. I will be reviewing them pretty close to the order you asked for me to review; if I have a shorter book that I know I can get finished in a sitting, I may put that one in front of another. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I do not post a review without you seeing it first. If I do not like your book; I will let you know. It is certainly not my intention or plan to destroy anyone’s writing career. But I also cannot consciously give a 5 star review for a book that bored me. You do understand, right?

It is my goal to assist you in fulfilling your dreams of becoming a writer, while fulfilling the thing I love doing more than anything; reading books and the proper use of the English language.

If you feel you have not heard from me in an unordinary long time, do not hesitate to email me. I have a full time job, part time college, 4 daughters, one who homeschools, and a nekkid kitty that demands attention at the drop of a hat.

And just because he is so stinking cute, and has been eyeing me for the past 2 hours from his bed on the top of the fridge while I am shopping on Amazon, here is Bare Bottom Benjamin Blu, or Benny for short. He likes it when I read because Β he knows he has a warm lap for several hours πŸ™‚
