Ever Darkening by Janeal Falor

A Brief Summary: Most people if presented with a chance to wipe out all evil people in the world would do it in a heart beat. But what if defeating evil people, released something else, something darker. Seeing as people can always be killed, but nature now that's something else entirely. So Kaylyn having killed of the Malryx, has no idea what to do so when a neighboring village needs help she jumps at the chance to help. This new quest may be more perilous than all of her others combined.

My Review:
I couldn't believe this book (in a good way). The premise is something that I've thought of a lot. A world without evil, but the world is a precarious balance so how would that actually work? In this world it doesn't.

I loved Kaylyn the badass warrior that has had her life's purpose ripped from her. It's complete, she's not needed, and how she grows and realizes what happened to the world. It's pretty incredible.

Jorrin is one of her two best friends. He's her right hand, and the man she promised to help her other best friend Marsa marry. Slight complication Jorrin doesn't exactly see Marsa that way.

I also loved all of the detail about the environment It draws you and and creeps you out, a lot. I was pretty scared for the characters, after all if trees had barbs like knives I doubt I'd ever get near one again.

Also the playing on the emotions, the climax was... incredible. It's hard to describe without giving spoilers, but i'll say this it's heartbreaking, and gives you all of the feels.

I received this book courtesy of NetGalley in exchange for my free and honest review.


  1. Sounds like quite the interesting concept. It doesn't sound like a book I would normally read, but your review leaves me quite interested. I'll have to check it out! Especially concerning the climax. It's so hard to review without spoilers! Lol.

    1. It really is. Especially when it's something you don't agree with and want to rant about it, or you really really love it.

  2. Wow, this book really sounds good! I don't think there's a book that handles the same topic as this. I'm especially curious how this will turn out. Definitely going to read this! :)
