#BookReview: Give the Dark My Love (Give the Dark My Love #1) by Beth Revis

About the Book:

When seventeen-year-old Nedra Brysstain leaves her home in the rural, northern territories of Lunar Island to attend the prestigious Yugen Academy, she has only one goal in mind: learn the trade of medicinal alchemy. A scholarship student matriculating with the children of Lunar Island's wealthiest and most powerful families, Nedra doesn't quite fit in with the other kids at Yugen, who all look down on her.

All, except for Greggori "Grey" Astor. Grey is immediately taken by the brilliant and stubborn Nedra, who he notices is especially invested in her studies. And that's for a good reason: a deadly plague has been sweeping through the North, and it's making its way toward the cities. With her family's life--and the lives of all of Lunar Island's citizens--on the line, Nedra is determined to find a cure for the plague.

Grey and Nedra continue to grow closer, but as the sickness spreads and the body count rises, Nedra becomes desperate to find a cure. Soon, she finds herself diving into alchemy's most dangerous corners--and when she turns to the most forbidden practice of all, necromancy, even Grey might not be able to pull her from the darkness.

About the Author: Beth Revis grew up in the Appalachian Mountains with a cemetery in her backyard, which is probably why she prefers her stories to be dark and full of twists. She's the New York Times bestselling author of the Across the Universe trilogy, which has been translated into more than 20 languages. Beth lives in a house full of boys—her husband, son, and two massive dogs—and she forces them all to watch reruns of Firefly and Doctor Who. Visit her at bethrevis.com.

My Review: I really wanted to love this one the first chapters in Nedra's POV were great but when we switched to Grey's the story fell apart for me.  His chapters were so boring and really kind of killed this story.  

I really loved the idea of Necromancy as not many stories deal with this topic. So that was a fresh new story that I really wished that I would have loved.  For me I just wish that this wouldn't have been in dual POV. 

The other thing about this one that made it a little unenjoyable was the writing style in general.  I have tried one other book from this author and really didn't care for it.  

The characters in this one were pretty good other than Grey.  I loved Nedra and her situation but Grey just didn't work out for me. 

Do I Recommend this book? Not really sorry guys
