Darkest Before Dawn by Cypher Lx

Ellisa Greyfield has not had an easy life; her parents were killed when she was young and her older sister Rachel forgoes her dreams to raise her sister. Dressing Goth and hanging out at Goth clubs, Ellisa tries to protect her heart by keeping everyone at arm’s length. When she finally thinks that her life is in order, a life-changing event causes Ellisa to become a Homicide cop. She believes that she is happy with a wonderful partner who cares for her. A new tenant in her building catches her interest, and she begins to have feelings for the mystery man. Her life drastically changes once more, throwing her into a world where she questions everything she has ever known, everything she ever believed.

I really liked this book, but the transition from her second life-altering change didn’t seem smooth as the first and left me with questions. Without divulging spoilers, I can only say that this book was a great read for me, but I had to make sure I had the time to devote to it. It is not a book that you can just put down; if you do, you may forget or lose key elements. I have read thousands of books, and this take on the paranormal is one I have never read before. The author’s writing style is very unique, and how she changes mid-book was confusing but amazing at the same time because what you think will happen and what does will make you sit back and say WOW.
