Darker Days - Jus Accardo

Darker Days is the beginning of a fun urban fantasy series for teens. It’s a bit lighter than other UF series, which I really enjoyed. However, there are some darker events that happen.

Jessie is a girl that is constantly trying to prove to her mom that she can handle bigger cases. She’s witty, and completely impulsive. She never thinks before she acts, and usually ends up causing some kind of damage. This chick is out to get the baddies come hell or high water. Her parents have an interesting relationship, and I think that effects Jessie more than she lets on. She’s definitely loyal, and I admire her about that. Oh, and the sarcasm/snarky. She’s awesome at it! And Lukas, holy mcfreakin’ hot! He’s considerate, but has his own skeletons in the closet. He’s mysterious, and you want to know all about him. He’s got a strong will, and that shows throughout the book. He’s also very honorable, which is funny considering what we find out about him.

The story is fast paced. Finding the box and sins has to be done within a short amount of time. You think it’s just this task that needs to be done, but you soon realize there are other agendas happening. You’ll laugh, cry, and want to beat the crap out of some people. It’s a great, quick read.
