#BookReview: The Dark In-Between by Elizabeth Hrib

Synopsis: A terrible accident brings sixteen-year-old Casey Everett's life to a halt—literally. Pronounced dead on the beach during the year-end harbor party, Casey’s sudden return to the living is shadowed by the drowning of her best friend, Liddy.

Eager to avoid the rumors that follow her, Casey returns home for the summer, only to find that Liddy won’t let her go. A series of violent nightmares and soulless whispers threaten to drive her mad, but when she watches a boy fall from the sky, she suspects she’s actually crossed that line.

That is until Red—an angel fallen to earth to regain his wings—takes her to Limbo: a place that exists somewhere between the living and the dead. Now, in order to save her best friend, Casey must learn to walk these mysterious and dangerous paths or else risk losing Liddy to something worse than death.


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
My Review: The way this was written in 3rd person POV made it a little hard to love.  I did enjoy it but I think that instead of buying this one borrowing it from the library would be a better idea.  There were parts that I think were just way to slow and things that we just don't see enough of like Liddy.  I loved the relationship with Red and Casey but overall the story just felt off.  


Praise for The Dark In-Between:

"Readers who enjoyed Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series will appreciate the fighting, angel lore, and spooky elements of this entertaining, fast-paced novel. There’s plenty of chemistry between friends-to-lovers Casey and Evan, while Casey’s grief is handled in a sensitive and appropriate manner all the way to the satisfying conclusion." ―School Library Journal

"Hrib weaves a dark and dangerous story of life and death with vivid, energetic characters and a heart-pumping pace that hurtles readers along. ... A novel take on a popular paranormal concept." ―Booklist

"A fun and engaging story! The narrative voice is easy to sink into, and the angel world and Limbo are imaginative and exciting." ―Sam Taylor, author of We Are the Fire

"A perfect mix of established religious/mythological elements and 'legend-building' ... I really couldn’t get enough." ―The Fandom
