Mothers were supposed to love unconditionally. Mine didn't. In fact, she tried to kill me on my thirteenth birthday, when she saw just how different I was. My dad saved my life that night. He also took her away on an extended vacation, leaving me with an ever-absent uncle.
Five years later, solitude was something I lived by. I had to because I was different and people tended not to cope well with the unusual. In fact, they hated me for it, were even scared of me because of it.
I thought I was meant to live alone, until Isaac Grey took notice of me. He changed my life, taught me I wasn't the only one who was different, and I didn't need to be alone.
But with love comes sacrifice and then pain. Could I ever escape living in the dark?
In The Dark begins when Lelia has to go life with her uncle after her mother tried to hurt her. Now, five years later she's in college and ready to get out of town. No one wants anything to do with her because of how different she is.
However, that all changes one day when their is a new guy at school named Issac who won't stay away from her. He wants her as a friend and more, but each of them are keeping secrets that may come back to destroy both of them.
This book was actually really interesting, and funny at times as well. I really loved the heroine and I liked most of the plot line as well.
And the side characters were great and added a lot of comic relief to the story.
However, there was one thing the hero did that just was totally stupid and frustrating to me that it drove me to dislike the book somewhat.
Because of this over all the book was enjoyable and I liked it, but it wasn't more than that. It did end with a great happily ever after though, so that's a very good thing about it.
