Review :

It has been a while since I came across a promising “first” novel for a series in a genre like this. Well actually I am not even sure what genre this is. Darken (The SIEGE Series, #1) by Angela Fristoe is definitively contemporary and a romance but also it is something different.

It is a based on a not totally new but still intriguing plotline. The reader can easily picture the future novels as there are enough hints within the plot of Darken and that is totally OK.
Gavin and Cora get their sort of standalone novel so – yeah – not a cliffhanger in sight – thank you very much. The story starts of quite loud in the first chapter but gets a little more quite then.
I would have wished for a little faster pace around there. But I often encountered this with the opening books of a new series.
Sometimes a story has to find its flow and that might take a little so I assume we will know for sure if this series is a keeper when the second book is out.
The writing is solid and the characters are well developed – I see no reason to not enjoy this book either as a standalone or as the opening of a new world.
I honestly think that some of Gavin’s Brothers might be even more interesting than Gavin (sorry).
So I am actually looking forward to the next books and would love a chance at reviewing those too.
