Nameless: The Darkness Comes
Luna Masterson sees demons. She has been dealing with the demonic all her life, so when her brother gets tangled up with a demon named Sparkles, ‘Luna the Lunatic’ rolls in on her motorcycle to save the day.
Armed with the ability to harm demons, her scathing sarcasm, and a hefty chip on her shoulder, Luna gathers the most unusual of allies, teaming up with a green-eyed heroin addict and a snarky demon ‘of some import.’
After all, outcasts of a feather should stick together...even until the end.
Some books you read and fall into like floating in a vat of hot chocolate. This one was like that. Only it was hot chocolate with a dose of freaky little demons and one hunky otherworldly sort of guy named Mouth. Oh-and a worldly guy named Seth. They were both high up on my awesome book boyfriend list.
This book made me laugh out loud and cry in turn but one thing stayed the same. I couldn't stop turning the pages.
Luna is a girl who sees demons. Like everywhere. They hang out and ooze from sidewalks and annoy her when she's eating her Cheerios. It's an everyday thing. Unfortunately. Her brother Seth denies it. Her niece is the delight of her world, but when her brother's ex (aka Sparkles) runs off with her, things go to Hell in a hand basket pretty quickly.Nothing is what it seems and its starting to piss Luna off.
If you love books with biting wit, snarky characters (Mouth!!!) and a heroine you can really root for, then you have to read this book. I love Mercedes Yardley's writing style. She makes the characters breathe and that is a beautiful and terrifying thing indeed.
I happily received this book (and jumped up and down) from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
