  • Lets just say this book never seems to disappoint me I have loved this series for so many years but was a lot younger when I first read this series therefore, when re reading the series now I become quite sceptical as to weather I will enjoy the series as I did the previous time Throughout the story you are forever finding new parts of the Darkside world and of the character s personality s These books are so easy to read and can easily be read in one session Tom Beckers writing is not the most [...]


  • It was certainly creepy and atmospheric, and generally well done except for odd clumsy bits, and I might have been appreciative another time There s lots to come, with Vendetta, Marianne and possibly others still around and out to get Jonathan and all the mystery about Jonathan s mother too I m not planning on reading it now, but it might happen.


  • I thought that Darkside was really creative book and had an excellent concept behind there being a entire, evil side of london hidden behind the regular side of london So overall i thought this book was really really good and i would recommend it to anyone that likes horror, suspense, or creative novels.


  • TOTALLY creepy Like Coraline creepy like I had to put it down creepy why do we have this cataloged in JF But then the action took off which took down the creepiness But solid YF for scary stuff urban fantasy can t wait for the next installment.

  • Kleine s e Geschichte, die mich berraschenderweise gepackt hat Idee und Umsetzung sind gut und knackig formuliert Zudem sind die Charaktere sehr sympathisch Es fehlte etwas an Tiefe, was wohl der geringen Seitenzahl zuzuschreiben ist Ansonsten gut gemacht und perfekt f r Zwischendurch.
