This is very interesting story. The author obviously felt like she had a lot to say because it was near 300 pages. I will say that I had trouble getting through it all. The plot idea was very interesting. Sydney is in a very bad place in her life having recently lost her dad and her mom being admitted into a psych ward after a suicide attempt. Sydney is taking everything one day at a time until her best friend Christine convinces her that she needs to get out for some adventure. It turns out that they used to a lot of adventuring before the accident, so Christine is just trying to help Sydney get back to being her normal self. This vacation is the start of Sydney discovering that she is very special. She is a Nephilim. Her powers have been being hidden and denied to her from some pills she's been taking, but the Fallen angels are now after her for those powers. She must learn to use everything that makes her who she is, avoid the other supernatural creatures that are out to get her, and find the truth behind who she really is. I really liked the plot. I just honestly felt like these 300 pages were more like an outline of a story than the actual story. More often than not it felt like Sydney was telling me a summary of what happened without any major details being explained. I was confused often enough with the dialog that I know the summary of the situation was not really giving me the whole picture. Aside from that, I don't think this story was edited at all. There were incorrect words used periodically. You can easily figure out what the author intended to say, but the incorrect words tells me that if she did have an editor, that person probably shouldn't be used again. The other grammatical thing that absolutely drove me insane was the incorrect use of quotation marks. Many times the dialog started with quotation marks and would have ending quotation marks somewhere in the middle of the dialog. When you read it, you will think that the dialog has ended but the character keeps talking. Normally I would interpret that to indicate that the dialog was continued as a thought, but it became obvious that that was not the case the more I read. Honestly, I was disappointed because I really liked the idea behind it. I am giving this three out of five roses (my new rating system), but really I am being generous.

LaTeya pens "Swept Into Darkness" in an original and unique plot filled with Greek mythology and angels of the dark and light. I totally different view on the paranormal genre that will keep you turning the pages. Highly recommended for all readers. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.
This was such an awesome read!! I got sucked into this book immediately and fell in love the characters!! I haven't read a book that had angels and greek gods thrown into it and it was a perfect match! The fact that this was a book about good and bad angels really made me constantly wonder, well is this person really good or bad and dying to get to the next page to see what happens! The ending left me going, OH CRAP! I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
If you are looking for something different in the world of paranormal, then you have found it. Swept into the Darkness is great read that takes Angels of dark and light and mixes them with Greek Mythology and you've got one awesome story! Our main character is Sydney London. She's a beautiful young woman who has suffered enough to last her lifetimes. Just when she thinks things are starting to look up, accidents and tragedies strike once again and she is on a mission that will take her beyond her wildest dreams. She discovers that she is a Nephilim, half Angel and human. She finds out who and what her mother actually is. The dark angels want Sydney to join them on their counsel but her Guardian and childhood friend Angelo will do anything to protect her from them. First and foremost, I really enjoyed reading this story. LaTaeya has written a great beginning to a promising series. Her creativity to blend angels and gods, Realm jumping and other paranormalness made this story full of emotion and excitement. The fact that Greek Mythology was incorporated was an added bonus for me. I am a HUGE fan of the Gods of Olympus. I really do recommend this book to those looking for something out of the ordinary for paranormalcy. Kudos to you LaTaeya on writing such an amazing story!!!
