Thanks to Janeal Falor for giving me this book to review.
Kaylyn has spent all of her life training to kill Malryx, the evil people in the world. However, when she finishes her mission, she has no idea what to do next as she has no other purpose and no other skills. A stranger from another village claims that the sky is growing darker and the animals are acting strangely. Kaylyn is more than happy to help and sets out on a quest to find out what is happening with her childhood friends Marsa and Jorrin along with the remaining Zophas. However, Kaylyn’s quest is harder than anything she could have imagined and will test her friendships, soul and how she views the world.
Ever Darkening is a really good fantasy novel which was fast paced and is really addictive as I could not put it down. It has lots of action, romance, suspense and it is quite dark with horror elements.
All the characters, apart from one, acted older than they are as they behaved as if they were in their early 20’s, not mid to late teens. I really liked Kaylyn as she is mature, a good person and always puts others before herself, although she is a bit blind about other’s people’s feelings. Marsa is a friendly and likeable girl, but I did not feel she fitted in as a Zophas, as her personality didn’t fit with that as a warrior. Jorrin is a serious guy but I really liked his character as he is protective.
I hope Janeal writes another book in this series as I really enjoyed it. I would recommend to fans of the Grisha series, Winter Queen by Amber Argyle or fans of Falor’s other series, Mine.
