Review: Fall of Darkness (The Darkness Chronicles #1) by Elle Bright


Fall of Darkness (The Darkness Chronicles #1)

by Elle Bright



One woman, the fate of the world in her unknowing hands. One man, sworn to destroy her. A love so strong it defies nature. In a world of obsession, deception and betrayal, the line between good and evil fades, but one truth remains absolute. Darkness must fall.

For centuries, werewolf, Dominic Ridolfi, has battled the demons of the night, upholding the sacred pact to protect man from vampires. Yet when sent to destroy the long lost Cacciatori heiress, the vampire prophesied to free her kind from the curse of darkness, he finds himself reluctant to complete his task. The innocent beauty awakens his humanity and Dominic finds himself not in the role of assassin, but savior.

Swept away in a whirlwind romance, Kate loses herself in Dominic’s mysterious world of opulence and seduction. But Dominic has a secret. He knows the truth about Kate’s past, and her future, truths with the power to destroy them both. Only in her dreams does Kate sense the growing darkness within. Dominic saved her once, but can she save herself from the darkness within?



3 out of 5 stars

I liked this story a lot, it was a good read and there were parts I really loved. I enjoyed Kate and Dominic's interactions and their growing relationship. I liked their chemistry a lot. I also liked the conflict and inner turmoil that was involved.

When Kate's world is turned upside down, everything seems pretty abrupt and matter of fact. I like how she dealt with it for the most part even though she was very conflicted a lot of the time. During the second half of the book, I felt bad for Dominic and Kate and all they were going through. There was just so much longing and it was rather heartbreaking. I liked the growing friendship between Kate and Alex as well but I never liked Alex like I liked Dominic. He was intriguing but I never fully trusted him, it was like he had an ulterior motive I didn’t know about. 

There was a section in the middle where I thought things were a bit drawn out and I was ready for some action, by the time the ending came around, I wasn’t disappointed. There were some emotional times at the end with drama mixed in and I was happy with the conclusion. I can see with how it ended where a second book would come into play (and yes, there will be a book two – Dark Redemption).

This was a love story with paranormal characters involved. I liked the storyline, characters, the bit of heat, and drama. Definitely a good read.
