REVIEW: CURSED BY DARKNESS BY ANNA SANDERS



CURSED BY DARKNESS
BEFALLEN TIDES #1
ANNA SANDERS
GENRE: URBAN FANTASY

SYNOPSIS


Winx is a daevor: a demon who can coerce people into killing themselves. After using her powers to avenge her sister’s death, she’s sentenced to have her wings severed and serve as a soldier. But Winx refuses to play by the rules. She goes into hiding at a BDSM club in Los Angeles where nobody would think to look for a deadly daevor.

Keaton’s friends and family are under attack by savages–people who arise from death as soulless monsters. Winx is the only one with the power to defeat them, and Keaton is determined to harness her dark powers… no matter what it takes.

Cursed by Darkness is the first in an urban fantasy trilogy by Anna Sanders, available Fall 2012!




MY TAKE

3 STARS

Cursed by Darkness is the first book in the Befallen Tides series by Anna Sanders. I was left with mixed feelings about this book.

The Good:
I really like the cover art for this book. It's what drew me into reading the synopsis. The story itself is decent and promising. Winx's character is fleshed out pretty well and I liked her.

The Bad:
This would have been a better story, maybe even a 4 star book had it been better edited. There are several errors in grammar, punctuation, etc... I noticed there were even random periods in the middle of sentences. I think Keaton's character seemed a bit two dimensional and there just wasn't any character building with him. One thing that bugged me was the weird names for common supernatural beings. Daevors are demons, Bandits are some form of werewolf, and Lixyn are basically angels, Savages are zombies...why not just call them what they are?

Overall, I liked the story, but with more editing it would have been much better. Cursed by Darkness seems like a promising series. I wish I could give it a higher rating, but the editing was very lacking.

I got this e-book through the LibraryThing Member Giveaway program in exchange for an honest review.
