Dark Matter by Christie Rich
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is an older young adult paranormal romance novel.
Rayla Tate’s dreams for the future shattered when she discovered she was an Elemental capable of manipulating matter. Thrust, once again, into the magical fae realm of Faeresia, she has an important choice to make. But now that she has Heath to contend with, deciding between Zach and Luke is the least of her concerns. Tall, dark and lethal to her will, her attraction to Heath eclipses all she has experienced with any other lord, but he is using compulsion to wear her down. If only she could trust her feelings?
In a desperate attempt to escape Heath, she accepts the help of a little troll and finally gets what she wants; however, her relief is short lived. Things go terribly wrong when a dark force closes in on her, threatening to steal her burgeoning power before she even has a chance to test her abilities. Now, with Rayla as their captive, the Order will stop at nothing to create a male Elemental, and willing or not, Rayla is the key.
Caught up in the age-old battle for dominance between human and fae, only one question matters to her now—will she be able to save those she loves most without losing herself in the process? Or will she be forever haunted by the choices she alone can make?
Overall, I liked this story more than the first. We were immersed in Christie Rich’s Fae world throughout most of the story. There we learned just the extent to Christie’s imagination in a good way.
I wasn’t endeared more to Rayla in this story. But that is okay, I didn’t have to like her much to enjoy this story. She was wrought again with indecision and I wanted to slap her at times and hug her other ones. Okay, let me give her some slack, surrounded by hot guys, I think I would be just as confused if they all wanted me as well. We meet a new suitor in this story. For me the jury is still out on him.
The storyline was one, I don’t think I could imagine and that’s a good thing. We went places I hadn’t expected to go. And when I though all my questions were answered, something else would happen. All that did was help make this story a page turner.
Would I recommend yes. For those who love stories about the fae and don’t mind love triangle, give this story a shot. You may find a new series to love.
My book boyfriend, Finn. Since he wasn't on the menu, I guess you will have to read why I chose him.
