Review for Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton

Title: Darkness Becomes Her
Author: Kelly Keaton
Series: Gods & Monsters, #1
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: February 22, 2011

Synopsis: Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is. Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued. She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very…different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her. Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

Verdict: This book was ahhh-mazing!!! And I loved everything about it! The characters were awesome. The location was perfect. The mysteries were haunting. The romance was sweet. I will literally be waiting with bated breath until I can get my hands on the sequel! Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton will definitely be going on my "Favorites" shelf! The plot was awesome, it was fast-paced and never had a dull moment. The main character; Ari was super cool. She has some **cough-cough** weird lineage and very different looks. For example, she has silver hair that can't be cut or dyed. Pshh, talk about jealousy? It totally made me want to dress up as Ari for Halloween. Then there is Jenna aka Crank, Henri, Dub, Violet, Pascal (the albino alligator), and Sebastian. All of them together kind of make-up the misfit gang in their home in New 2, New Orleans. New 2 is a city that is no longer owned by America because after the hurricanes destroyed it, nobody wanted it, so the Novem banded together and bought the city and it's now under their control. Cool, right? In their city, there are some awesome creatures such as vampires, witches/warlocks, shape shifters, harpies, gorgons, and gods/goddesses! This book really left me hanging and wanting more of all the drama and excitement of living life in New 2! Overall, this was a fantastic book that I can't recommend enough!!! <3
P.S.- If you would like to read more of Kelly Keaton's books, you can find her adult fiction work under the name Kelly Gay. :))
