Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book? 
I’m struggling to answer this question. You know how sometimes you watch a show you’re not really that excited about because it’s the only thing on? This book was kind of like that for me. I read the ARC, so I’m hoping editors will catch the usage errors (peddle vs pedal, for example) and, you know, the fact that Mia wears glasses in the book but apparently doesn’t need them on the cover. Plot-wise I’d say this book is basically Twilight with a few tweaks–a little bit creepier, certainly, but a little bit watered-down as well. I’m placing it firmly in the “decent, but not worth reading again” pile.


Would I recommend it? Nah.



About the book – from Goodreads: 
For Mia Hieskety, surviving high school meant focusing on exams and avoiding stupid parties. After breaking up with the only boyfriend she ever had, dating was off the agenda. That is, until Thanatos came along.

Inexplicably drawn to Thanatos, she’s determined to find out who he is and why he insists on wearing gloves to school. Something is off about him. And it’s as if she can feel him when he’s near.

Without warning, she’s thrust into a sinister world and discovers a truth that she never expected. When a supernatural connection puts Mia’s life at risk, she doesn’t know who to trust—especially Thanatos. But what if she’s in love with him?

Bold, irresistible, and beautifully written, Scythe of Darknessexplores a star-crossed destiny in a whole new way. Don’t miss this hot YA urban fantasy!
