About The Gathering Darkness
They say “third time’s the charm,” and for sixteen-year-old Brooke Day, they had better be right. She’s been here before, twice in fact, and so has the darkness awaiting her return.
When Brooke is forced to leave Boston for the village of Deadwich, she thinks her life is over. New friends become estranged—downright evil. But worse, recurring nightmares become reality.
Enter Marcus Knight; he’s popular, hot, and the only person Brooke can trust.
Not to mention, they’ve shared the same nightmares.
With the discovery of an ancient Celtic amulet, Brooke and Marcus unravel the secrets ofher past, revealing the path to her future.
As the equinox approaches, darkness and light merge for the first time in a century. Soul-mates reunite. Magic awakens.
Reviews for The Gathering Darkness
Overall, I found the cute social awkwardness of young love and teen life to be a little more than I was expecting. Somehow I did not want to think that Brooke is just 16. Or maybe I was lucky/clueless at 16 to not really be fazed by all of the stuff. For me, in this case, less on this is better for good writing.
Early on in the story, the Celtic amulet plays a large role, giving way in the second half to witch lore and dark practices, so intriguing to readers with an interest in witchcraft.

This was an awesome book. A real page turner. I wanted the story to conclude but not the book to end. I loved the main characters. I hope to read more by this author in the future.
Brooke and Marcus, or Clair and Christian...by any name, in any lifetime, through centuries, these two struggle to overcome the curse of past lives, and the spells of evil witches to finally have a complete life together. Very well written. I spect it will be a hit in my high school library.
I read this book on a cloudy, cold day while snuggled in bed. It was the perfect atmosphere for this read. Just a fun, slightly creepy story to get lost in. The romance is very young adult and I liked it. Made me feel 16 again.
