Sasha has always seen fleeting shapes in the shadows which often take on a human shape, a feeling that there are eye's on her, watching her but no one is there, she has seen people walking down the street that no one else can see. These are just some of the things she keeps in her 'secret box', that she had learnt to trust no-one with.
As a small child Sasha was the only survivor of a freak 5 car smash that apart from her no one survived including her parents and brother Sasha was found some distance from the wreckage with minor injuries. With no other family she grows up in foster care.
Jared is her first boyfriend, first kiss, first love, but when she tries to open up to him to trust him about the shadows and her secret box he tries to arrange counselling for her. So she keeps the shadows and her secrets to herself.
On the way home from a restaurant the couple are involved in a car accident in a less than savoury party of town. As they start walking to get help or they are attacked but not by your every day muggers, ......
This is a completely new take on vampire/fantasy genre which is a breath of fresh
There are some parts of the book I find a bit odd, like the ease in which Sasha accepts situations I understand part of that is to do with the vampire/fantasy but after their initial attack, despite the memory manipulation she accepts the personality change in Jared without a question (and it is a huge change) and its rushed its more a novella at 187 pages, so it felt like a lot of information was packed into the small book perhaps the storyline could have been stretched into the next book (there were plenty of excellent cliff hanger moments, or slowed the
entire book down and made it longer. Into the Darkness is a little 'naughty' some of the erotica is clumsy, some distasteful but there are some genuine moments.
Still this is only my opinion you have to read this yourself.
Despite my niggles Internal Darkness isn't a bad read. It is the first book in a series it has set the scene, we know a little about each character and the situation they are in.
It's clear Sasha is special but how and why, is it a gift she got from her parents who died before they could tell her, is it something to do with the reason she was found away from the fatal accident or is it just fluke?
I look forward to finding out how the relationship develops between Sasha and the 'Boss' 'Stefan, he clearly has feelings for her but can he bring himself to tell Sasha what happened, will she forgive him?
How the Boss's self appointed mate Darla is going to take to Sasha (not well I'm guessing)
I also looking forward to getting to know Charles better, though 38 in 'their' years he's little more than a horny teenager in human years, but so far he's turning out to be a loyal, horny and of all things a great knitter(if you can find room for a red and orange scarf in your wardrobe) oh and did I mention horny? But he's also incredibly funny. He's a great foil to Sasha's steely wit.
