Book Description

205 Cheyne Avenue holds some dark secrets…

After an accident claims the lives of two boys, fifteen year old Sarah Walton moves in to 205 with her mother. It isn’t long before she realises there is another, unseen resident, and convinces best friend Christina to help her make contact. When they do, the girls learn more than they bargained for, and soon find themselves desperately unravelling a series of clues in order to stop a malevolent being, seemingly bent on manipulating the souls of those he’s killed in order to gain omnipotence. Their only ally is Craig, a spirit they’ve befriended via a Ouija board, but as the story unfolds, the girls discover things aren’t quite as straightforward as they’d assumed.

4.0 out of 5 stars The long awaited novel 24 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is brilliant. After finally getting to read it, it doesn't disappoint. Coming from where the book is set made it come more alive as I was able to picture the places as I was reading about the girls mission. The author keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. Also, for me I learnt a lot about the supernatural and ouija that I never knew before so informative as well. I am now waiting in anticipation for the next book to arrive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darkseed - Victoria Ley 26 Mar. 2013
By HCR
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and it suits both adults and young adult readers. The descriptive language is excellent so that you can actually visualise the places, events and empathise with the characters. The narrative never lets the pace drop which makes the story exciting and keeps the reader's interest. I wanted to keep reading and find out what was going to happen next. There are clever twists in the plot so there is always an element of surprise. The book is also very well researched in terms of the themes it contains. An excellent book, I thoroughly recommend it and look forward to the next instalment.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an absolutely GREAT book!! 29 Jan. 2013
By BamaFan
Format:Kindle Edition
Victoria Ley's Darkseed: Awakening is a masterful book! You may think this book is just about séances and Ouija boards, but you would be wrong. Those elements are there, but it transcends that on so many levels, both physical and spiritual, and Ley does an amazing job of weaving together these two existences in such a way that is very believable.

The story grabs you right from the very first sentence. The action is palpable and at times leaves you breathless at what might come next. The main characters, Sarah and Christina are well developed as well as the friendship they share. I cheered them on as they began their search for answers into the deaths of two boys that had died in Sarah's house several years ago. I was also worried for them, thinking at any moment one of them was going to end up dead. Ley writes in such a way that you really come to care about her characters, as well as hoping the villain gets it in the end. Does this happen? Well...you will have to read it and decide for yourself.
I will say this; Victoria Ley is the queen of misdirection. At one point I thought I had it all figured out, and with the turning of a page all my theories crumbled. I love it when an author is able to do this!

I would recommend this book to anyone. It is well written, exciting, suspense filled and clever. You will love every page!

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic 21 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely adore this book! I usually forget some stories pretty quickly,but this was still in my head a few days after. And as a songwriter,its given me so much inspiration to write. My upcoming album is written about the supernatural,so i related to this book very quickly. It really was my kinda book. Victoria's done amazingly well,and she should be so,so proud of the work she's put into it. I'd love a film to be made of it,i wanna write the music.
I wouldn't think twice buying any future books written by Victoria. And she has a future :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Darkseed Awakening. 26 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a MUST READ, I dont usually read books of this genre but it was recommended by a friend and having just purchased a Kindle i thought, oh i will give it a go, OMG i could not put it down.
Right from the first page i was gripped and read it three days. The story line is brilliant and because it is so descriptive you can actually imagine yourself there.
I would recommend this book to everyone and cannot wait for DS2
