Review; The Gathering Darkness by Lisa Collicutt

They say "third time's the charm", and for sixteen-year-old Brooke Day, they had better be right. She’s been here before, twice in fact, and an evil demon-witch wants her dead a third time.

When Brooke is forced to leave Boston for the small town of Deadwich, she thinks her life is over. Before long, her new friends start acting strange—downright evil. But worse than that, nightmares she’s had her whole life become reality.

Enter Marcus Knight; popular, hot, and the only person Brooke can trust. Not to mention, they’ve shared the same nightmares.

With the discovery of an ancient Celtic amulet, Brooke and Marcus unravel the secrets of her past, which reveals the key to her future.

As the equinox approaches:

Darkness and light merge for the first time in a century.

Soul-mates reunite.

Magic awakens

My thoughts
Loved loved loved this book, It had all the my favourite things, Witches,  magic and soul mates what more could I ask for, oh yeah a super hot swoon worthy guy.

Marcus is going straight into my top ten book boyfriends, what I loved about him was he was a decent, sweet guy, most of my top ten list is made up of the "Bad boys" but Marcus was just *Sigh* perfect

Brooke was easy to relate to she felt so real awkward like a typical teenage girl who as moved to new place and school, but she was strong too and brave despite her fear of what was going on she didn't run away, she faced them head on.

the author manages to give us just the right amount of information when we need it, I never felt like I got an overload of information which would have been easy to do, even when reliving past lives the the pace kept up we found out with Brooke what we needed to know when we needed to know it and it never felt dragged out.

Brooke and Marcus have lived the same life twice before and each time have died/been killed in Brooke sixteenth year, this time they are determined to live, with Brooke new friends suddenly acting very strange she as no-one but Marcus to turn to, her rock, her light.

I cant say enough good things about this book, I just feel like gushing about it but, you don't want to read that, what you should read is this book, if you love magic and witches and demons and transcending love, you will love this book
