I very much enjoyed reading Weaver of Darkness. It started right away which had me almost confused but I fell into it easily and the face pace kept me thoroughly hooked. The plot never seemed to drag or get boring. There was enough mystery to keep you interested but not so much you didn't know what was going on. There was the typical love triangle, but I can get around that because of the rare strong emphasis on teamwork and friendship.

I loved the characters, the plot twists. I love how there was so much foreshadowing but I just didn't get it until it was too late.

Quite a good read! ( )

Finally able to put it down… only because I finished it!!! Once I read the short story ‘Black Days and White Knight’ from Melissa I knew I had to know more and was very excited about this book! Now I can’t wait to see if there will be even more to the story!?!? I hope so! The characters were great! Sometimes it could get a little tiring listening to ‘Liss’ complain and the constant “you’re amazing” from her friends… but then who wouldn’t want to know they’re loved especially when going through some pretty horrific things… and they all are!! I loved her friend Rob! The men in her life are pretty incredible… but they should be right! LOVED the wolf! The description of how things looked or smelled or felt as they happened was incredible! I could picture it all too well! The feeling of the nightmares was written so well… wanting to do something and having no control over the awful things happening right in front of you… helpless. Wondering how in the world is she going to get them out of this! Makes you stay up late reading just to find out! Great story and I hope there will be more!! ( )

Cover

Definitely disturbing, but I like it. The spruceness of the title's lettering with the little flourishes set atop the slight creepiness of the cover art presents a nice contrast.

Plot

For me, the book started off reminding me of a cross between I Know What You Did Last Summer, Chucky and Scream. It did get better as I kept reading.

Minus the prologue, this book starts off common enough: boyfriend and girlfriend walking home from school with friends talking about what they're going to do that night. Then the freakiness hits the proverbial fan ...

Without giving away spoilers, I will say this novel contains twins who represent good and evil, a loyal servant/protector to the good twin, ghosts, shapeshifters, witches, demons, gods, delusions, love, human sacrifice ... this novel has it all.

Main Characters

Melissa - An only child stuck in a home with parents who are too busy for her.

Jerry - Melissa's boyfriend and son of the town's sheriff. He does everything he can to protect her.

Hunter - He has vowed to protect Melissa at all costs no matter the circumstance. He's wise, mysterious, strong, loyal and faithful.

Mark - New kid in school who befriends Melissa and seems to take a personal interest in her. Will he come between Melissa and Jerry?

Overall

This novel has a lot of familiar aspects (especially to an avid reader), but they're written in a style that is different and engaging. I would recommend this to any fantasy and mystery lovers. ( )

Weaver of Darkness starts off well, but when a murderous Raggedy Ann doll appeared at the end of the prologue I actually laughed out loud. All the tension that had been built up was lost and never regained.

The rest of it read more like a direct to video horror movie than a book. The plot was full of clichés, the dialogue was bad, and the characters lacked depth. ( )

Wow! There were some really eerie parts in this book. If you like your paranormal on the dark side this is a book you have to read. This was a little too dark for my taste but everyone's taste is different. The main characters were well written. I really felt sorry for Liss and all she went through. It was hard to decide who I liked more for Liss, Hunter or Jerry. I have a weakness for shapeshifters so I have to admit I was leaning towards Hunter. Especially with the history he and Liss shared. I thought it was a little unrealistic how accepting he was of her relationship with Jerry. They both love her and sacrificed so much for her, though so in the end I could find it in me to accept who she did end up with. All in all, it was fairly well written. The endearment "baby" was used way too many times. It started to get to be a bit nauseating after while. I just was disappointed by how dark it was. There was so much death, suffering, pain and betrayal. Not the type of book you want to read when you are feeling down. Thank you to the author for allowing me to read this book due to my winning it in the member giveaway. I appreciated the opportunity. ( )

That's what happens when you're the good guys; you let love get in the way.
