A Brush of Darkness: Review

A Brush of Darkness (Abby Sinclair #1)

by Allison Pang

Genre: Urban Fantasy


The man of her dreams might be the cause of her nightmares.
Six months ago, Abby Sinclair was struggling to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. Now, she has an enchanted iPod, a miniature unicorn living in her underwear drawer, and a magical marketplace to manage. But despite her growing knowledge of the OtherWorld, Abby isn’t at all prepared for Brystion, the dark, mysterious, and sexy-as- sin incubus searching for his sister, convinced Abby has the key to the succubus’s whereabouts. Abby has enough problems without having this seductive shape-shifter literally invade her dreams to get information. But when her Faery boss and some of her friends vanish, as well, Abby and Brystion must form an uneasy alliance. As she is sucked deeper and deeper into this perilous world of faeries, angels, and daemons, Abby realizes her life is in as much danger as her heart—and there’s no one she can trust to save her.

My Thoughts:

4.5 stars

It took me forever to finish this book because I was super busy latety but honestly each time I had to leave it, I didn't want that.

It's different from what I usually read. 

It has a lot of different creatures. If you can think about it, you will find it here. There is even a unicorn hehe and how cute is that he sleeps in the underwear drawer? lol
Abby doesn't find it that cute though XD

I discovered a great new series, with an impeccable writing, that is witty and funny as our heroine. Abby is definitely one of my favorite heroines ever.

She is human enough to feel like a human even surrounded by all sort of creatures, she is a little clueless regarding her duties and she is stubborn but she is also caring and honorable and brave!

Ion! Oh My! Sexy as hell, so manly but with that quote of loneliness and self pitty that just makes him hard to decipher. 

Super well developed characters but not as much to outshine the story. With supporting characters also interesting.

The plot is original and it flows smoothly, with a lot of action.

Totally steamy but not gross at all, made me want more and more of this couple. 

What else? I LOVED the dialogues! Another way to show how sharp Abby can be. 

I am adding it to my favorite's shelf and adding the sequel to my TBR list NOW!
