The Dark Light by Sara Walsh

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Synopsis: Mysterious lights have flickered above Crownsville for as long as Mia can remember. And as far as she's concerned, that's about the only interesting thing to happen in her small town.

That is, until Sol arrives. Mia's not one to fall for just any guy, but she can't get Sol--or the brilliant tattoo on his back--out of her mind.

Then Mia's brother goes missing, and Mia's convinced that Sol knows more than he's sharing. But getting closer to Sol means reevaluating everything Mia once believed to be true. Because Sol's not who Mia thought he was--and neither is she.


Review: The Dark Light by Sara Walsh is a fantastic paranormal fantasy with a touch of romance and mystery intertwined into the story. When I first began reading this book I wasn’t sure where exactly it was going to take me. From the premise I guessed that the story had something to do with aliens, but as I began reading it I quickly realized it was something way cooler and stranger even. In the beginning we are introduced to Mia a small town waitress who spends her time going to school, working and taking care of her little brother Jay. The two live with their not-so-reliable uncle Pete in the town of Crownsville where mysterious lights are often scene. Not too long before Jay’s disappearance we’re introduced to Sol the hot, incredibly ripped, older looking new kid at Mia’s school. From the beginning Mia realizes there’s something definitely different about Sol, in particular the massive bird tattoo on his back that coincidentally matches the tattoo that Jay (her brother) has on his ankle. Not to long after Jay goes missing (after following a few bright lights into a field) does Mia believe that Sol has something to do with the disappearances of not only her brother but several other kids from surrounding counties. Here is where the adventure really begins. I loved the synopsis for this book because it doesn’t give much away but just enough to intrigue you. I won’t give away any spoilers but this book was amazing! What a wild ride it was! Walsh blew me away with her story building, the intensity of the attraction between Mia and Sol and the impeccable writing. Although this story is definitely targeted at YA, I can easily see an adult enjoying it. Walsh’s story and writing reminded me often of one of my favorite writers, Karen Marie Moning. From shadows, to visage demons, to shape-shifters, to equinox portals this story is filled with paranormal elements that will keep readers excited and intrigued. Don’t let the synopsis trick you this story is more than just about inexplicable lights and a hot guy in town, it’s genius! Walsh deals with several different elements from mystery to romance to the paranormal. Lets just say the journey through Brakaland will blow you away. ;)
