Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

A Beautiful Dark is the first book in a captivating trilogy by debut author Jocelyn Davies.


Review:
The cover is beautiful and the synopsis is perfect to pique anyone's interest but it pretty much ends there. This book disappointed me. I felt like the story was unoriginal, as if I had read this same book about 20 times before. Personally I would't have added such a love square and would have probably added a hope in one of her parents (or maybe both) of still being alive. Also something about maybe Aunt Jo being from one team or another.

The ending was horrendous but I do have to admit that it does make me want to read 'A Fractured Light'.

I Buddy Read this book with Hannah and here is out discussion post if you would like to read what we were talking about as we read along. Hannah & Martha's Buddy Read
