THE SWEETEST DARK
Abé creates a rich and refreshing world, where the miserable and merciless orphanage offers a harsh juxtaposition to Lora’s enchanting new home at Iverson castle. Lora is quick-witted and brave, filled with a quiet strength readers will be drawn to. Yet the romance is lacking. Lora seems to fall in love with Jesse for no reason, leaving readers confused. Jesse is unsettling; he has always known more about Lora than she has. He holds too much power over her.
