Alandra Valentine, a young girl gifted with strange magical abilities, moves to the small rural village of Haven's gate to escape her past. Haven's gate is run by an ancient magical society known only as the Guardians of the Light. She is soon asked to join the ranks of the guardians by the mysterious elder of the guardians, and leader of the village, Silvius Alarah. Her idealistic world is soon shattered when during a ritualistic protection ceremony something goes terribly wrong. A mysterious gateway is opened . . . and a terrifying army of living nightmares emerge from it. The army is led by a mysterious warrior woman-half-human, half-demon-to whom Alandra feels a strange connection. Alandra is plagued by dreams of a past she does not remember, and by a book that could change the world forever if it should fall into the wrong hands. Her whole life is turned upside down and nothing, or anyone, is what it seems . . .

The Darkness Within, by author Melissa Wild. Be sure you have a few quiet hours before you start to read this book. From the first page on you are unable to put this book down. Intrigue, mystery, adventure, and action builds on every page you read. This author has found a way to grab you, the reader and hold your attention to the end. Escaping from nightmares, a broken home and the cruelty of teasing friends, Alandra Valentine seeks the atmosphere of a place to live and feel welcomed. Heavens Gate appears to be the answer. However she is soon to discover otherwise. Magical and evil forces intervene and she must face the demons of her past to be free of the present. Enjoyable and exciting reading with so much imagination. I highly recommend it.
