#BookReview: In the Dark by Becca Fox with @thelitcoffaerie




About the Book:

How far would you go to save your family?

Movies and books have made being a monster sound cool.

Lindsay can’t wear silver jewelry or get drunk with her friends, but hey, she sprouts fur and fangs during the full moon. Totally rad, right? Not. Forget about exploring the beast within, Lindsay just wants to graduate from nursing school. When a stroll in the park ends with her and her little brother being surrounded by masked goons who want to sell them overseas, Lindsay has no choice but to change.

Despite her best efforts, these kidnappers know how to handle a werewolf inexperienced in hand-to-paw combat. She regains consciousness hours after the scuffle to find her brother gone. In a panic, she turns to the only werewolf she knows: Wayne, Mr. Werewolf Pride, the guy Lindsay rejected none-too-kindly several years ago. Being the forgiving kind of guy he is, Wayne agrees to help. . .so long as Lindsay joins his pack. Living among others of her kind is the last thing Lindsay wants, but for her brother’s sake, she bites her tongue and agrees.

Lindsay learns a few things while traveling through Europe in search of her brother. One: Being a werewolf can be pretty badass when you know how to use your abilities. Two: Being a freak isn’t so bad when you’re surrounded by other freaks. And three: She might have misjudged Wayne.

When she and Wayne stumble onto the mastermind behind the kidnapping, this werewolf mafia king decides they know too much. Lindsay and Wayne should get out of dodge but, they know that unless this man is stopped, innocent people will die.

About the Author:
Becca Fox was that strange girl in high school, who always seemed to have her nose in a book. She didn’t talk much because, more often than not, she was daydreaming about different fantasy worlds. During class, under the guise of taking notes, she wrote scenes for her works in progress. 

Becca is a bit more social now but still enjoys reading, writing, and daydreaming. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband, a fat orange tabby cat, and a forever-puppy.


Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: The adventure was great!

Check out author's other books? Maybe. Not my first choice.

Recommend this book? Maybe. Depends on the person.

Notes and Opinions: This book started like a sequel. I was very confused during the first couple chapters because it felt like a second book not a stand alone book. Once the story got going it was well-written and I enjoyed the adventure. Some parts seemed a little far fetched but its a paranormal book so that happens. Then I started getting to the ending, the ending felt VERY rushed. It seemed like this journey had been created and then Fox didn't know how to end it so she just quickly ended it and out in an epilogue. While I liked the middle and the story ended happily-ever-after, this book should have been a series or should have had a longer, more thought out ending.

Go Into This One Knowing: There is child slavery, beatings, rape, pedophilia, and gore.
