    I received this book from the publisher through Net Galley for an honest review.


    I’m not quite sure what to think of this book. It is very short, the story only 89 pages on my nook, yet it took me three days to get through. I can usually knock that many pages off in a couple hours, less if I’m really into the story. So what does this say about how I felt about this story. Hmm. I’m thinking life might have gotten in the way. Some busy days at work, riding my bike, shopping after two weeks without getting groceries, a tree falling down in our pasture…yep, life got in the way. I also think that the story was difficult for me to get into at times or I had trouble figuring out what was going on. Perhaps I wasn’t just paying close enough attention due to the interruptions.




    The story reminded me of a lot of different ones, however, the ones it reminded me of are all movies. Darkness falls is billed for paranormal romance fans in the synopsis, but to me the story is more sci-fi then paranormal. Sure they have some sort of powers, but much of what is being dealt with is scientific or technological in origins. I think the story could be enjoyed by both fans, but I would not really call it paranormal. The romance label is spot on, though, and well done. Steamy enough, but not over done. They don’t spend most of the 89 pages in the sack, time is taken to develop the relationship. Malcolm and Jordan have good chemistry and their personalities play off each other nicely. The supporting characters didn’t get much development, but it is a short story, so I can overlook not learning too much about them. We did learn a bit about Jordan’s sister, but she was pretty important to the plot.




    So I mentioned that the book reminded me of some movies, so what are they? Right off I this gave me a bit of The Matrix vibe and eventually elements of Inception filtered in. Not that the book has anywhere near a similar story line as either movie, alright Inception is also about shared dreaming, but the story just reminded me of those movies. I can’t think of a book that I can compare this to, so I can’t recommend it based on if you liked this book try this one too. But fans of either of those movies might want to give it a go.




    So what did I feel is missing from the story? We never really find out why the “bad” guy wanted Jordan, and I was really curious about that. There is another book after this one, so perhaps that was held over for a plot thread in that story. The start was kind of rough for me. I would have liked a little bit more information about how all the shared dreaming works and maybe some more time in the dream realm. I think also the story didn’t grab me until about the middle, that could be why I had such an easy time putting it down to do other things. If I’m really into a story to hell with everything else, I’m gonna read dammit. This one just wasn’t that way for me.




    Bottom line, it was an interesting concept, pretty good execution, and great ending. The characters were likable and well written, with flaws, strengths, wise cracks, and growth. The story is short, but feels like a longer book, the author packed a lot of action in to just 89 pages. I think I’m going to give it 3 stars, and will probably look into book two to see what happens next. I hope you give it a try, and if you do let me know what you think.

    Review courtesy of Romance Junkies Jordan Lane works for a mark

    Review courtesy of Romance Junkies

    Jordan Lane works for a market strategy team. She is cautious and reliable, the polar opposite of her younger and wilder sister Maisie. When Maisie voices an interest to try Reve, Jordan refuses to let her go alone. The experience opens Jordan to a new life path wrought with danger and people who want to exploit her unique ability.
    Rook is a Chimera agent. He needs a change of pace, so Rook transfers from tracking psychotics across the dreamscape to recruitment, in order to escape his nightmare’s manifestation. He uses the Reve to scout and mark possible candidates. Jordan surprises and intrigues him. 




    Jordan starts out bland and blasé but as the story progresses, her character and personality deepens. I found her dedication to her younger sister admirable and touching. It really states the type of person she is. I like her caution towards Rook, how the two did not connect right away but when they do connect, it is in degrees.
    Rook mystifies me. He is tortured but from actions committed in his teens. His interactions with Jordan made me laugh. She proves to be the perfect fit for him, the ideal person to help him accept his skeletons and learn to live. 
    I got a little lost, and a small bit bored at the beginning. However, once I assimilated to the world, its lingo, and learned about its uniqueness, the momentum of the story picked up and I began to enjoy the story and its characters. What I love most about the story is the uniqueness of a side character’s name but then I am bias because it is my husband and my oldest son’s name.
    DARKNESS FALLS stands out from other paranormal stories with its distinctive content. The world building is fresh and remarkable and I like how it varies from the other stories available.

    Malcolm Rook was recruited by the Chimera as a teenager. Now Mal

    Malcolm Rook was recruited by the Chimera as a teenager. Now Malcolm is hunting the Reve for new recruits with the rarest of talents.

    Jordan Lane is headed to the Envoi for a so called girls night out with her sister, one that she has spent everything she has to attend. Jordan has read so much about this place and it not so sure this is such a good idea.

    As they delve into their dreamworlds Jordan and Malcolm's paths cross and it is not long before Jordan realises this is more than a girls night out. With her sister mixed up in something dangerous, Jordan is determined to find out what is really going on. Malcolm knows it won't be long before Jordan become the target but will she trust him and can he trust himself.

    I found myself enthralled within Darkness Fall's storyline from the very beginning and fell in love with the strength and emotions of the characters and their stories. Praise to Erin Kellison for an amazing start to a new series and I look forward to the next instalment.

    Good story

    I had problems at first. It was kind of confusing. I felt like I was missing something. It did pick up and I really enjoyed it. Much more than I thought I would when I first started. I loved that there was no annoying "running" and the main female character was pretty down to earth and didn't jump to conclusions. I'm looking forward to reading the second one.

    This paranormal romance is a mesmerizing journey into the fascinating world of dreams, fantasies, desires and different realities. Agent Malcolm Rook is recruiting dream masters for Chimera and Jordan Lane is undeniably gifted but wary, but soon the dreamwaters proves too exhilarating and their passions ignite, but delving too deep stirs up a nightmare they must defeat or be lost forever in darkness.
    This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with suspense, fantasy, drama and romance.  The author brings the world to life with well written scenes and details that create a complex and fascinating world that captures the imagination. The characters are strong, compelling, easily understood and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning and endless possibilities arouse curiosity and fantasies drawing the reader deeper into the world and ensuring they want to know more.
    The attraction between Jordan and Rook radiates not only from every page but deep within the dream world as well, but Rook has some emotional issues from his past that makes him think he’s unsuitable, but he doesn’t count on how strong and gifted Jordan is. The reader gets caught up in the intriguing world as Rook introduces not only Jordan, but the readers as well to the enthralling and addicting world of shared dreaming.
    First let me say, read this series in order. I read the third one first and while I enjoyed and was intrigued I was a bit lost, but this one has cleared that up, while I am on this subject adding a glossary of terms might be helpful.  The world is complex and intriguing which keeps the readers completely engrossed in the story from beginning to end while entertaining them with drama and passion, although I feel that the story could have benefited from being a little bit longer.

    ~ 3.5 Darkness Stars ~  Darkness Falls is book one in the Revel

    ~ 3.5 Darkness Stars ~ 

    Darkness Falls is book one in the Reveler series by Erin Kellison. I’m not sure how I feel about this. I’m not a big fan of things that do with the mind, dreaming, and/or time travel. I always feel there is to much to take in and to many options. 

    Darkness Falls is about dreaming, living a life within your dreams. It’s a shot read, but not an easy one. I had a hard time following the world at times, eventually I got use to it and some things flowed even though I did not have a complete grasp of what went on. Things will probably become more clearer as the series progresses. The characters are interesting. Malcolm is a character you want to root for and Jordan has a impious sense of humor. Their is some heavy flirting, a sex scene or two and an element of danger. The ending leaves you with some unanswered questions and a feeling that you need to read on to complete the story. 

    Darkness Falls is part of the Dark and Deadly box set, but also can be picked up solo. I went back and forth on Darkness Falls between liking it and not, but by the end I felt it was a good read. I would like to see what happens in book two, but it’s not a story I felt I could read again over and over.

    Bummer....

    3.5 Stars
    Damn, right when I was really beginning to understand and enjoy this book..BAM: Cliffhanger! I'm really starting to hate these damn authors today! What is the point! Just write one complete novel instead of serials, you'll have much happier readers and followers that way because as much as I want to know what happens with Rook, Jordan, Maze and Coll I refuse to pay for cliffhangers, I'm just so tired of these games...sighs.

    Overall this was quite a confusing read at first. I had no idea what the hell was going on but as I kept reading, it started to make more sense and it became quite enjoyable. Jordan was funny in a sarcastic kind of way, which I liked immensely. She follows her instincts very wisely, doesn't make stupid decisions which endeared her to me even more as a female lead. Good story line, different from other books I've recently read...again too bad for the blatant cliffhanger...that just sucked monkey balls!

    Sexy, Dark, Edgy & Complicated! DARKNESS FALLS by Erin K

    Sexy, Dark, Edgy & Complicated!




    DARKNESS FALLS by Erin Kellison is the first book in Erin's new Reveler series. I would highly recommend that this series be read in order as there is a rather involved continuing story and interconnected characters who figure prominently in each book.




    There's quite a bit of darkly intricate information crammed into these 115 pages and I have to admit to being initially somewhat puzzled by it all. Still... this story served as a good set-up for the series and I really liked the hero and heroine.

    Source: I received an e-copy via the tour in exchange for an honest review

    When I was checking out DARKNESS FALLS and found that so much of it takes place in the dream state of Rêve, I thought well doesn’t this sound kind of Matrix-y. I’ve always thought it would be so cool to interact with other people in dreams. Can’t you just imagine the type of dream world a big group of book lovers could create with all that shared imagination power?

    Right away you jump feet first into the action and world of Rêve and are introduced to Malcom Rook…who seems rather shady at first….and even more so when he meets Jordan and her sister Maisie on the way to Rêve. But the question of who’s the good guy and who’s the bad guy get a little twisted as more characters are introduced and events unfold. The one constant was that I was rooting for the girls…Jordan to come into her own in Rêve and to help Maisie…and for Maisie to get grow up and get herself out of trouble. Okay…and as Rook’s motives finally begin to clear I start to root for him too.

    I really enjoyed that Rook had that questionability going for him. He wasn’t a one-sided character by any means and it really makes you want to learn more about them. I LOVED Jordan though! She’s a great big sister, strong, and willing to embrace learning about her Rêve abilities. It doesn’t hurt that she gives Rook a hard time too! There’s a hilarious scene about his apartment that you have to read!

    With only 120 pages DARKNESS FALLS is a quick read, and it seem to fly by even quicker thanks to the fast paced action. The main thing I wanted was more! More of the world, more of the characters, frankly just more book! I would have loved to see another 120 pages of Rook and Jordan’s story. Thank goodness that book 2, LAY ME DOWN is already out. Even though book 2 switches focus to a new main couple (Maisie and Chimera Agent Steve Coll), I have a feeling it’s going to answer some lingering questions and leaving me wanting…you guessed it…more!

    Sexy, dark, and edgy. Just my cup of tea. I really enjoyed this

    Sexy, dark, and edgy. Just my cup of tea. I really enjoyed this story. It took me by surprise, but I was hooked right from the beginning. I was immediately swept up in the world Ms. Kellison has created and absolutely loved the concept. The premise is fresh and original and kept me totally involved from beginning to end. The idea of dream sharing sounds so cool. That's what happens in Darkness Falls. Jordan only wants to protect her sister, Maze, so she agrees to go to the Reve with her and enter into the dreamscape. I won't go into any more than that you'll have to read to find out what it's like. 




    The descriptions were great, and just so you know, like the real world, the dream world needs policing. That's where our mysteriously sexy Malcom Rook comes in as he hunts for the perfect talents for recruiting to work for the Chimera when he encounters the beautifully gifted Jordan Lane. 




    As a side note, I must admit I found myself crushing on Rook from the very beginning. I recommend this book to lovers of paranormal and stories about dreams. You won't be disappointed. Darkness Falls gets 5 stars from me.

    Darkness Falls is the first in the brand new Reveler series from

    Darkness Falls is the first in the brand new Reveler series from Erin Kellison and it was a thoroughly enjoyable read. I tend to enjoy paranormal tales with a slightly darker take and I believe this series might be right up my alley!

    Imagine a world when you can be thrust into a dreamscape, a dreamscape where you not only have the ability to interact with other people, but also the ability to change what is going on around you. Like in all aspects of life, some people have a stronger affinity for it than others, and not all of these people fall on the side of good in the age old battle of good vs evil.

    Darkness Falls gives us a tentative look into this new world I am excited to see where the series goes, and the different characters we will meet along the way. It's a unique take on the paranormal and I do not know what to expect next but I can't wait to find out!

    A great start for a new series! Darkness Falls is a wild mental

    A great start for a new series!

    Darkness Falls is a wild mental ride and I loved every minute of it.  This book has The Matrix feel in which you question reality and the spine-tingling scenes reminiscent of Flatliners (a 1990 film – yes, it’s old but I thought it was scary and freaky!). Add sexy agent Malcolm Rook and you have an action packed steamy paranormal romance!

    This story is perfect as a novella. The length of the book gave me enough time to grow to love Rook and Jordan.  Jordan is smart, strong and funny.  Rook is at first dark and cocky but once he lets his walls down he becomes the sexy hero. And the story moves so fast there is no drag time. I could not put this book down!

    Erin Kellison is a great story teller. Her books are paranormal but with an unusual twist that makes them stand out above the rest. Ms. Kellison creates worlds with so much detail I can visualize it as if I was watching a movie. The story may be dark but she creates characters that are strong and filled with love and hope. It is good vs evil with steamy romance on the side!

    This is a great start for the series and I can’t wait to read more.  I highly recommend this to all paranormal fans!

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: 3
    REVIEW:  
    This was a quick read   Darkness Falls was a very interesting read and world for me.  I have not really decided if I am in love with this world yet or not.  This first novella in the Reveler series was a little hard for me to follow and understand.  But seeing as this was the first book the world building is important .  Therefore I do plan to read the next novella and see if this series is really for me.
