    4 BLOODY GOD STARS The Darkening Dream is an intense dark fantasy.First when I heard about the book I thought it would be a vampire chicky romance.But it was nothing like that.This is one of the most creepiest paranormal books I have ever read.The story takes place in the 1900s, in Salem which we all know what associates with that place.Horror The plot was complicated.Sometimes it took me time to realize what was happening.I do have a problem with plots with to much going on,but this one was hil [...]

    To be clear I didn t finish this book which is enough of a review in itself for me I got about 65% of the way through and I felt guilty putting it down because I hat not finishing something I just couldn t make myself continue with all the good stuff on my TBR list So, now for a little on why I couldn t finish.I just could not get into this book The constant POV changes were unclear and seemed for the most part unnecessary The characters didn t seem to have enough substance to them that I actua [...]

    I won a copy of this book through Firstreads When I entered to win this book through , I was honestly quite excited to read it I knew that it would have a religious undertone considering the setting takes place in Salem however, I never expected it to have it shoved in your face within almost every chapter The plot also wasn t scary enough for me I m aware that this was geared towards the young adult age frame, but when I was a teen, I was reading books with much heavier content I also found the [...]

    I picked this book up because it has a pretty cool cover and it was free on was a 2 day sale Thought it was worth a chance This story surprised me in many ways The following is what made this story great, as well as what kept it from 5 stars.Wins Supernatural Religion One thing that this author did that most others do not have the guts to do is address religion and deities in association to anything supernatural There is nothing I hate in a story than when authors have a character say somethin [...]

    Think of Salem, Massachusetts and you would think of the Salem Witch Trials, but we aren t in the 1600 s The year is 1913 and tales of witches are long gone, substituted by those of the vampires Aside from them being called vampires, what do these vampires have in common with those that we know of in today s world Absolutely nothing When Andy Gavin went back in time with The Darkening Dream, he not only brought us to old traditions but to old rules Farewell to the vampires that sparkle and fall [...]

    The Darkening Dream is billed as a dark fantasy, some of it borders on horror and I found some aspects of it a little perverse It has teen protagonists, but don t for a moment let that make you think that this is suitable for teens, it isn t If the author intends it for young adults, then he either needs to prune back the gratuitous sexual twists in some of the scenes or put a warning on the outside of the book It s not the sexual content itself that s the problem there isn t a great deal of it [...]

    Review of The Darkening Dream by Andy Gavin5 stars The Darkening Dream is a far complex book than I expected, and joyfully so I raced through it, unable to put it aside till I d finish, then ended it asking for a sequel I truly hope there will be one So many layers of different metaphysical possibilities and realities exist in this story that any reader of the paranormal of almost any stripe will find something to latch on to except maybe werewolf lovers LOL There are vampires, ancient entities [...]

    Wow talk about good book This is Andy s first book which shocks me to be able to write such depth and create so much story right off This book is about some young friends in Salem, MA set in 1913 you have a very different era when cars are new and girls don t show any leg great job by Andy in giving you an idea of how things were back then These friends are caught in a fight with a vampire Not the soft sparkly 100 year old virgin kind No this one is a rotting carcass of evil and looking to sprea [...]

    So I m going to be honest I wanted to read this book because of the author Andy Gavin created Naughty Dog, which is an AWESOME video game developer At fifteen So clearly this guy has some creative talent I was intrigued to see if this carried over to the written word from the land of 1 s and 0 s It did, very nicely I might add So here we go about The Darkening Dream The Setup From 1913, Salem, Massachusetts Sarah Engelmann s life is full of friends, books, and avoiding the pressure to choose a h [...]

    Two words complicated and intense.The great care that was taken to develop the setting in this book was amazing It completely sucks you in The story takes place in Salem in the early 1900s, which makes it the perfect setting for a super creepy story And boy, did this story get creepy The characters were extremely well developed It s hard to say what I liked about them the most The good guys were than just vampire fighting teens They had, well, character I won t say much about them though I d ra [...]

    I ve been consciously avoiding reading for the last few days because I am so uninterested in this book What a shame, as it s not bad so far I just can t get past the idea that young people from different religions from this time period would be allowed to hang out together, much less genders being alone together I have no research myself to support this, or the time to find out What matters to me is that it doesn t feel believable and feelings are important to the reading process The dialogue s [...]

    I admit, I was not prepared for how scary this book is Andy Gavin has an amazing talent for creating horrifying, yet somehow beautiful, images The story is complex, but never confusing The characters are original and satisfying I am hoping for a sequel, as the ending leaves an opening for of Sarah s journey What an imagination this author has

    Let s face it Vampires are sissies, and have been for the last decade Ever since the paranormal romance genre introduced us to the vampires in love with our heroes or heroines, vampires have been known as goody two shoes, true romantics at heart We ve forgotten the roots of these creatures They re not meant to fall in love or seduce our main characters They re meant to be terrifyingly scary, dark and dangerous, bloodthirsty murderers who maim and kill with a passion No longer do good and evil ov [...]

    I m going to start off by saying this book was very dark, very gruesome, and heavy I bought it for my kindle after seeing it advertised on , and it was not at all what I was expecting I m in need of a light, fun read after this one, or maybe just a strong drinkSet in the early 1900 s, Sarah is the well read daughter of a rabbi, and from the very beginning we see that she is wise beyond her years She meets an immigrant from Greece, an attractive boy that shares her intrigue and worldly knowledge, [...]

    The Darkening Dream was completely unlike any book that I ve read before At first I was really caught up in the summary of the novel which definitely catches the reader s attention as well as the stunningly dark and mysterious cover paired alongside it The fact that I liked the book so much caught me completely off guard and I m really glad I gave this debut novel by Andy Gavin a chance The Darkening Dream brings together a fantastic mixture of fantasy, mythology, paranormal, historical fiction [...]

    The Darkening Dream is the first period piece I ve read since, like, High School English I really didn t know much about this book so I had no expectations going into it Sometimes, that makes a book enjoyable, just letting it unfold for you This was one of those books that I just opened err, turned on , started reading and didn t want to put down because I was so enthralled by the world, the history lesson and the utter creepiness factor of the story.I got a kick out of getting into this world [...]

    Salem,Massachusetts, 1913, vampires, magic, and one girl and her friends in the middle of it had this as a free electronic download some time ago and I just got around to reading it Very mixed feelings on this one The story itself is intriguing and fun and it took me longer than usual to call the twist, and that is always refreshing The characters are relatively well drawn personality wise and several of the fringe characters are very entertaining Of the main group of four friends, Sarah and Ale [...]

    One thing I must say right off the bat is I m not one that gets into the whole vampire or werewolf books I particularly do not like them Sure there are some vampire books out there that I have read, however they are not my favorite genre to read I chose to read The Darkening Dream by Andy Gavin because it seemed not to be the usual vampire book and I was so right This book is based in the early part of the 1900 s in Salem, Massachusetts I was first intrigued to the detail of that era and the des [...]
