Taken (Breaking the Darkness #1) by Felicia Starr

Taken (Breaking the Darkness #1)
by Felicia Starr
Released November 11, 2013
Available Format: ebook

It’s time to get hooked on another fabulous series!

"You must betray your heart and walk amongst the darkness in order to find the truest light."

Opening her eyes to an imposing prison of complete darkness, Kasha is accused of possessing powers and abilities she had no previous knowledge of until the moment she comes face to face with herself while meditating. Haunted by memories strung together by lies and deceit, she soon discovers that maybe her beloved grandmother kept a few secrets she hadn't been aware of. Secrets that could be her salvation… or her undoing.

As she struggles to control her newfound powers, only time will tell if they will be enough to help her decipher who has imprisoned her or what they want from her. She must search for the answers and the freedom she so desperately desires. Could a handsome guy who vows to help her get away prove to be the man of her dreams… or perhaps her worst nightmare?

Not knowing who to trust, she must find a way to escape before she pays the ultimate price and finds herself taken by the darkness.

First of all, I must say it has been an honor and a joy to work with Felicia on this book. From the very start, I knew she had an incredible talent for writing, and this debut novel is just the beginning of a long and successful career for her.

Felicia does an amazing job drawing the reader into Kasha’s world. Every character—even the bad ones—is relatable and so well developed. Through a series of memories, thoughts, and astral projections, we are enveloped in Kasha’s feelings and experiences and want to fight for her just as much as she wants to fight for herself.

This beautifully written story is mysterious, dark, and exceptionally entertaining. There are twists and turns and an ending that will leave you begging for more—in a good way. :-)

I cannot wait to dive into book two and work with Felicia to create another remarkable masterpiece!
