Book Review: Darkness by Ciye Cho

Title: Darkness
Author: Ciye Cho
Series: Florence Waverly Series (Book #3)
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Pages: 245
Publisher: Studio Amazepop
Year Published: 2015
First Line: “In a dark cavern, I found myself standing in a cage.”

A dire prophecy has emerged and the mer believe that humans and merfolk are in grave danger. Terror is closing in, but only one person hold the key to stop it: Florence Waverly. However, her mission to save two worlds will lead her far, far out into the darkness0 a shadow realm full of monsters, magic and wicked tides that could tear apart bodies.
With the help of her friend, Florry must uncover a secret about humans and mer. A long-lost secret that could change her life. And above al else she must fight hard to light the darkness. Everything depends on her mission: her friends, her world and the one she loves.
The past, present and future are about to collide- but can she stay afloat? One way or another nothing will be the same when she enters the Darkness.”

My Rating: 3.5/5

This is the most recent instalment of the Florence Waverly Series just released previously this year. I found this story to be interesting, and when thinking back to the other Florence Waverly volumes I realize how much the main character in this series has grown. Florence has gone from a timid mouse of a human to someone who is willing to do anything for those she cares about. This is proven time and time again throughout this novel.
 Although, I must say that the details in this book seemed to slip slightly and I found it difficult to picture some of the things that were going on in this fantasy world.
Overall this series has been a thrilling adventure filled with romance, emotion and imagination.
To create such a world in such a short amount of time is impressive, and Ciye Cho should certainly have a following of YA readers that enjoy a taste for adventure.

Thank you for reading,

Spoiler: Darkness by Ciye Cho

As mentioned above this is the third instalment in the Florence Waverly Series that has just come out this year. I was impressed by the self-published author Ciye Cho, as it must take a lot to go solo on a series such as these. I was even more impressed with how he created a world and a way of life through his words. His characters have grown and changed and I couldn’t be happier with it. I do have a few questions, as always, but all in all this was a good book.

♥Florence Waverly: The main character of these stories has truly changed. She is no longer timid and afraid to show who she is, in fact she shows who she is proudly and steps into the role of hero in this third book. I was impressed by the fact she walked into the Shadow Fyre. She did what had to be done to save those she loved, although she knows it could change her forever. Although I never found Florence very relatable, although this could be because she is so wishie washie about every decision she makes and I’m more the type of person who leaps in. All or nothing.
♥Rolan: He has also changed. He is more willing to show himself for who he is as well as able to confess his love for Florence without thinking he is “stealing” her soul. In fact, it takes two to tango, and Florence and Rolan dance this dance quite well. I wish them all the best in the future although I don’t think that all in Nimelia will be impressed with this changed Florry.
♥Mara: Mara has also changed. Although she gives it her all, she isn’t afraid to care for people around her (Wynn, Florence, Rolan). She fights truly till the end. Even though she finds out her father is a traitor she carries on like a true warrior.

♥Wynn: At the beginning I was questioning Wynn’s loyalties, but I believe once again her remains loyal to Florence and Rolan.
♥Kiren: Where did you go again????

♥Malor: I don’t know if he’s crazy, or if his madness stems from the beginning of his kind. Could it be possible that this is the colony Cornelius found? Did the darkness that affected Cornelius’s body also affect his mind and affect the leadership found here?

♥Moments to Remember♥
♥Pg. 114
“‘You’re holding me to tight,’ I whispered.
‘Maybe I’m trying to make sure you don’t slip away.
‘I’m not going anywhere.’”

♥Final Line: “It’s not over…”

Thanks for reading,
