Book Description

From the cradle to the grave...

The Black Oligarch is dead. Some call his replacement a boy, others call him a threat. Cole lost everything the night he became Oligarch: his family, his home... even Jonah. Now he's alone, left only with painful memories and the power to destroy the Five Lands.

When Dylan is sent to help Cole, he finds they have more in common than expected. They hope to build a new life together, but dark forces have other plans for them. The dead are rising, bringing secrets from the past that threaten to change their lives forever. Can Dylan guide a young man through the darkness and protect those he loves without making the ultimate sacrifice?

From Darkness to Darkness, book two of the Loka Legends series, features new illustrations by Andreas Bell, the author's husband.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good and entertaining fantasy adventure 12 Oct. 2012
Format:Paperback
The first book of The Loka Legends series, The Cat in the Cradle, was Dylan's coming of age story. It was a touching and compelling story about a young homosexual guy, who had to accept his sexuality and feelings. He also had to find a way to save himself and his friends from a killer, who killed Oligarchs.

Here's a bit of information about the plot of From Darkness to Darkness:

From Darkness to Darkness begins in an interesting way. At the beginning of the book Cole loses his friend and family. He almost dies, but he is given the black loka and he's able to heal himself. Because he has the black loka, he becomes the Black Oligarch. Dylan and Tyjinn have spent a lot of time together since the events of the first book. Dylan is sent to help Cole and he has stay away from Cole for a while. He returns to the Lakelands with Cole and has to deal with several things. When Cole disappears, Dylan and his friends have a lot to do...

Before I write more about From Darkness to Darkness, I'll mention that it's a much darker book than The Cat in the Cradle. Because of its dark themes From Darkness to Darkness is a book for adults, but it's also partly a young adult book (I think this book will be of interest to young adults because the young characters and their problems will appeal to young adults).

Jay Bell writes wonderfully about the characters, their insecurities and their thoughts. The characters face several difficult situations and they have to grow and accept changes. The inner struggles of the characters are interesting and add lots of depth to the book.

I liked it very much that the author was able to continue the story in a fresh and exciting way by writing about Cole's problems and how they affect others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jay Bell keeps getting better! 26 Sept. 2012
By Trock
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
SPOILERS I love Jay Bell, and I doubt that I would ever give his books less than 5 stars-but I wish I could give 'From Darkness to Darkness' more! I loved the first book in this series, but this was even better. As soon as I relaxed and realised that new character Cole was not going to come between Dylan and Tyjinn I was absolutely hooked on both the plot and the deepening relationship between the 2 boys. Jay built upon the existing characters superbly and introduced some fascinating new ones. I loved the addition of the colony of talking cats and Kio's back story-and new romance. This was not just a story of good v evil, shades of grey were evident throughout and the themes of how far one not only should, but would go to protect and re-unite with the ones you love showed insight and depth. Even at the conclusion, after everything which happened, Tyjinn could answer 'maybe' when asked by Dylan if he would ever use dark magic to bring him back from the dead.
This sequel was everything and more than I could have asked for-Tyjinn hints at a 3rd book at the end and I can only hope-there seems a lot of potential for it.

I absolutely love reading Jay Bells stories! I read Cat In The Cradle and was very excited when this book came out, but it exceeded all of my expectations! It's a week after I finished the book and I still find my mind drifting back to the story. Wonderful book, wonderful and amazing author. Thank you Jay Bell for your amazing worlds!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Jay 24 Sept. 2012
By Peter Mernagh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was with great relish that I started reading this book, I really enjoyed it, quite like being among old friends. The illustration is also superb. This is obviously a talented household,surprised by the end but in a very good way, I did not want to part with the guys so soon after meeting them.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Should Have Been A 7 Star 2 May 2013
By Paul A. Yao - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Cat In The Cradle is a definite 5 star for me which makes this one at least a 7 star. It's beautifully written. Jay has created an amazingly colourful fantasy world with some deliciously adorable characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better... 20 Dec. 2012
By Blaltimore Phil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Actually, I'm a fan of Jay Bell. However , it seems either he does a really impressionable work( Something Like Summer, The Cat in the Cradle) or a mediocre job. Hell's Pawn(another fantansy by Bell) was a bit too far out. The illustrations in this recent work were remarkable. However, it didn't maintain a sustainable interest and leave a lasting impression. It wasn't bad but reading Jay's other books I know he can do much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read all of his books 21 Sept. 2012
By J. Gerardot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read every single one of Jay's books. He has a way of sucking me in, reminding me of my youth and keeping me coming back for more. This book is part two of the Loka Legends. It too is full of excitement that will make you not want to put it down! The love between the characters and the way he sets a scene are so wonderful. Read his books! They're making one of his other books into a movie! Something Like Summer...look for it!
