Entwined Within the Darkness (Within the Darkness, #1)Entwined Within the Darkness by Charley Black
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

Entwined Within The Darkness is a paranormal romance and the first book in a series.

Patience is a talented witch who knows very little about her past. She shares a flat with her best friend Michael, a half-demon, and she works in a wonderful magical bookshop.

On a night out, Patience and Michael go to a Vampire club. Passion and death threats result; Michael bonds with his vampire lover but locks the duo in a dangerous coma. Meanwhile, Patience and Lucius, an infamous witch-hunter, must join forces to save Michael and his mate.

What I liked:
I liked Patience’s witch skills and particularly the bookshop where she worked. I enjoyed the worlds created and the general plot. There were several secondary characters who were also well written and likeable. The first third of the story was very enjoyable.

What I didn’t like so much:
After the first third the story felt a little rushed, a lot more characters were introduced, but they weren’t as rounded as the initial ones. As the story progressed, I felt that Patience lost some of her original finesse as a talented witch while the sexual tug-of-war between her and Lucius became predictable. The ending was odd; I felt that the plot twist did not quite gel with the rest of the storyline.

There is a good story here, and the first part of the book really was entertaining. For me, the latter parts needed more work to maintain the uniqueness of the main characters and to keep the plot fresh.

    • Hard question – as a reader no, because I wasn’t gripped by book one. As a beta reader, I would, so that if similar issues occurred I could get my point across to the author before publishing, so that they have a choice about making changes should they agree with my thoughts.
