Darkness Falls: Hunted is the first novel by Trista Jaszczak, and the first in the Darkness Falls series. This is a book that I believe will really appeal to lovers of the young adult genre. Although the main characters are now in their twenties, there is still an innocence to their relationship.
I got caught up in the story right away; it was well written and the characters were well developed. I liked the story between the two main characters, Randi and Xander. There was a slightly different take on the origins of their relationship that made them more interesting.
The only issue I had with the book was the slower pace about half way through and at times, the story seemed a little repetitive. However, it was well worth sticking with the story. The last part of the book had all of the twists and turns you could handle!
Although the end wrapped up nicely, there will be more books to follow. It makes me wonder what is in store for Randi and Xander.
Five years ago, the love of Randi Marshall’s life disappeared without so much as a phone call or even a letter. Ever since, she’s forced herself to forget the past and move on though moving on means suffering with nightmares night after night, dreams with a torturous vampire who hunts her in her thoughts. Things can’t seem to get much worse until Xavier Brighton walks into her life. As Randi falls head over heels for him, she doesn’t realize her world will be turned upside down again. Could a dark family secret rip them apart? Or could Xavier’s own secret be something Randi can’t forgive?
