Synopsis: In the depths of half-human, half-unknown, twenty-year-old, Summer Keese’s mind, the walls are beginning to crack....
I must be going mad. When my twin sister dies, my whole life begins to unravel in ways I never could have dreamed. A crazy lady ranting in my head, blood-drinking ghouls, a psychotic cult demanding I channel some powerful objects, dangerous men who want to control me.... Total insanity, right? Except, it’s all real.
Then I meet him. Black. Tall, handsome, godlike. The man harbors sinister secrets and lives by his own set of rules—rules I can't begin to comprehend. One minute, he seems to want to save me. The next, I swear he's going to bury me six-foot under. Why can't he just tell me what's really going on?
While searching for my sister's killer in a seedy part of Glasgow, I discover nothing about my life is what it seems. Family secrets, betrayal. Emotions running hot, I make some seriously bad choices. And with the heart of Scotland becoming a paranormal battlefield, I have to wonder.... When did staying alive get so damn hard?
Review: In CHANCE OF DARKNESS, Summer Keese’s whole world is turned on its head when her twin sister is murdered. I thought the world building and premise were great and I was really intrigued by Black. However, I felt lost most of the time because CHANCE THE DARKNESS was told from Summer’s point of view and she seemed to be confused throughout the book. Perhaps a change of POV would have made a difference for me. It was odd to me how Summer didn’t really try to dig too much deeper and when she ignored the information she was given, it was frustrating. CHANCE OF DARKNESS does pick up some toward the end, but I still couldn't connect with Summer. Overall, CHANCE THE DARKNESS has a wonderfully interesting and unique premise.
