Review: The Edge of Darkness, By: Melissa Andrea

The Edge of Darkness
By: Melissa Andrea

Synopsis: After a tragic accident, Araya Noelle is left with a constant reminder that nothing is forever.

She is forced to give up her chance to be the youngest dancer accepted into Julliard & taking over their high society school by a graceful storm of determination is no longer an option. Instead of dwelling over her loss, she accepts the new future she’s been dealt. In a world as black as hers, there's no room for bitterness, no time for regret. Sheltered from the outside world, Araya has become suffocated by a life she has no control over. Until Ryland Dare comes crashing into her life.

You don’t know true darkness until you've felt light…

Like a firecracker, showering her with colorful sparks of freedom, Ryland quickly sweeps Araya away from her grey existence. For the first time since the accident, living in darkness is no longer something Araya wants to do willingly. Unleashed by the shadows of her reminder, being with Ryland, Araya touches light. Together they will learn what it’s like to feel alive for the first time.

At the edge of darkness, a ray of light will,
DARE them to HOPE. 
DARE them to LOVE
DARE them to LIVE

The Edge of Darkness is book 1 in the darkness trinity novel.

My Review:  5/5 Stars

"Nothing last forever Ryland."  "Then, damn it, let me be your nothing, Araya."

This has become the latest addition to my "favorites". I loved this story from start to finish and cannot wait for Araya and Ryland's story to continue.

Within a blink of an eye Araya loses everything she holds mot dear.  Her life is shrouded in darkness and she forgets how to live.  That is until Ryland stumbles into her life.  

Even though Ryland comes from a wealthy family his parents' marriage is loveless.  He is counting the days until he can walk away, that is until a little hummingbird flutters her way into his heart.  

Together they show each other that life can go on and that true happiness does exist.  If only it could be that simple.  

The author did an amazing job developing the story line and the characters. I could feel the emotions pouring off the pages.  I think part of me feel in love with Ryland along the way.  There were several moments when I had tears in my eyes.  I am counting the days until the next book is released.
