I fell into Kayla's world easily and after the first few chapters it was easy to grasp the backstory and understand just what Kayla's world was about. This book shows an apocalyptic future filled with vampires that were created as a result of something humans did but the most intriguing thing is that no one seems to remember life before the virus spread, except Kayla. Just one memory, but it's enough to keep her asking questions.
I was completely blown away by this book because it has kept me confused and intrigued, I still can't figure out how everything fits together or even who Kayla really is and that's how I know I loved it. Being able to see the end of a story a mile away is something that constantly irritates me because I want to feel shocked and surprised by a character and their decisions.
Jessica has achieved this flawlessly because Kayla herself doesn't even know who she really is or what she wants. The gaps in her memories creates gaps in the story that make it impossible for me to fill, I can't guess what's going to happen because I don't have all the information and that makes this a gripping read.
My favourite element of this book is that it's not a love story; it's a story about a girl struggling to figure out who she really is and what role she plays in the world, much like the rest of us.Read more ›
Don't read this if: you really should read this, but you need to have a bit of patience as the story takes a little while to get everything set up.
This was my first Sorensen book (I've gone on to read her Fallen Star series too), and I was pleasantly surprised. So often the free or cheap kindle books are terrible, with no decent story lines. Darkness Falls was one of the rare gems.
Based around the rather unlikeable Kayla, Darkness Falls is set in a world where vampires are destructive, viscous creatures and the human race is the prey that hides in built up fortresses. But its not just the vampires that have changed the world, human society has changed too, there are different levels and you begin to suspect, each power level has its own secrets.
Kayla is an interesting individual, as I said she is rather unlikeable, she lies constantly, to everyone and doesn't seem to learn that it does her no favours, she doesn't trust anyone and is incredibly selfish. But The story revolves around her, so like her or not, you are tied to her. I like the fact that the main character is so awful, you still care about what happens to her, but you can also see her grow and change then rebel against that change. She's in a sense, human - she's not prefect and many of us can identify with that.
The book follows her journey outside the city, her friends, allies and helps her uncover the truth behind her past.
An excellent read, different, engaging and gripping - and best of all the vampires definately do not sparkle

Ok read but a bit predictable. Don't think I'll be reading the rest of the series. Not to my taste.Published 11 months ago by Janet
