I had a bit of a struggle with Cold Dark Places. It started much like taking a semi up a mountain for a really slow climb.. The end plunged full speed ahead like the brakes failed. I enjoyed the characters but thought the story jumped back and forth between them more than necessary. The ending twisted and turned for shock value and made the story for me. Cady and Eryn prove worthy heroines and I wish the story just visited their viewpoints without the extra one tossed in. A surprisingly good story for a book I had to start three times before I finished it, definitely full of thrills and excitement. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.

This is a great start to a new series. The story is captivating even with its flaws. The book switches to different points of view with each characters. Some authors are able write the perfect amount of information and Knowledge and other skip what is needed as they switch to the next characters. Kylie Brant is stuck in the in between some characters have more dept and growth while others are lacking what is needed to readers to connect with the characters. Readers will feel and understand the author pour her heart into the different characters. The story is full of suspense and mystery readers will enjoy. Thank you Netgalley for the advance copy of Kylie Brant Cold Dark places.

Kylie Brant’s latest novel, Cold Dark Places, is a roller-coaster ride that keeps you guessing the entire way. Cady is a strong heroine who is battling demons of her own, even as she tries to fight those around us. Brant’s manner of suspense creeps into your subconscious and won’t let go the minute you start reading. The change in POV provides a well-rounded story, even as it keeps you on your toes. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

Eryn, a young girl, is accused of killing her mother due to a mental disorder. Coming back home after being institutionalized for the killing of her mother, Eryn is not welcomed in the town. At the same time a dangerous murderer, Aldeen, escaped from the mental facility nearby. Is there a link between these two events? Nice thriller, it gripped me from the start. Thank you Netgalley for this copy.

Thank you to Thomas and Mercer as well as Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. The idea intrigued me from the start: a story that follows a young girl, Eryn, who was accused and institutionalized for murdering her mother. She is being released 11 years later to try and assimilate back into the world again. She is met by many obstacles and prejudices, as well as her own fears. Then add another set of people to the mix it up even more. Cady, the US Marshall who is so similar to to Eryn in so many ways but she chose law-enforcement, a young Sheriff, trying to fill his father’s large boots in a small town where memories are handed down. Last and by no mans the least Samuel Aldeen, bad guy of note. I loved the structure of this novel each chapter is told from each of the characters perspectives, you go from Eryn in the past to Eryn present day, then you split between Cady, Sheriff Ryder and Aldeen. It is great because it is possible to have things happen simultaneously in everyone’s story and then have a clear crossover through sharing of information, updates and general commentary. The story is well-paced and believable - I never once felt like it was outlandish. Well researched with realistic characters. The story has some great surprises Brant keeps you on your toys with some sub-characters who add lovely and annoying sub-plots and twists and turns. The last few chapters were nail biting and Brant rounds things off nicely. She sets it up for some of the characters to continue their journeys in another installment or two. I think Brant could quite easily create a series with a well-loved character that could quite easily reach the same following as Patricia Cornwell and her Kay Scarpetta series. A great read I will look out for another book by this author and most definitely for another installment.

I love when authors give us sick and twisted killers but mixing mental illness with a side of sexual deviancies has to top the list.. Mental illness is shown in all forms throughout this book. From schizophrenia to Alzheimer's. This truly made for some fascinating reading. Cold Dark Places is the first book in a new series featuring US Deputy Marshall Cady Maddix. She didn't have a pleasant childhood which has left emotional scars and the current case she is working on not only has her relating one of the potential victims but its also stirring up unwanted memories. This was an edge of your seat suspense full of twists and turns, many of which you don't see coming.
