Today on my blog I have The Descending Darkness tour. On my stop there is a spotlight and review.
Michael Chulsky grew up in New Jersey and has been writing ever since his fourth grade teacher let him create a class newspaper to channel his creativity. He is the author of The Descending Darkness and currently lives with his fiancé. When not writing he enjoys browsing Tumblr, listening to music, and devouring every piece of cheesecake that falls into his line of sight.
Seventeen-year-old bounty hunter SHADOW is about to lose his mind. One week he's killing demons and other creatures. The next, he has ten super-powered teenagers in his care. Shadow needs their help, because without them he can’t hope to complete his mission. But he’s never dealt with other teenagers before. He’s always been a loner. Heck, he’s tried the whole having-a-pet thing. It died.
Shadow’s mission: save the world and ensure his entire team survives the potential apocalypse. If MAEDARA, self-proclaimed fashionista, Queen of Evil, and diva extraordinaire wasn’t trying to rule the world, it’d be cake. Now, not only does Shadow have to deal with teens more concerned with going to the mall than fighting evil, but also a villain who, in his opinion, makes Lady Gaga look like Mother Theresa.
Shadow is a seventeen year old dhampir who has been protecting humans from the demons they didn’t know existed. He is use to being a loner and not worrying about anybody else. But all that changes when an oracle’s reading tells him he needs to save the world and gather special teenagers with powers who can help him. After he locates the ten teenagers, he starts to train them for the upcoming battle. But can Shadow get them to work as a team or will all their differences get in the way of saving the world?
I read this book in one sitting. I just couldn’t stop myself even after my kindle died and I had to finish reading on my phone. This is a great start to a new series and I can’t wait for the next book. Michael has a great way of telling a story that has humor, action, heart ache, and sarcasm. But I really loved how everyone is accepting even with their differences and is encouraged to grow and mature.
All the characters work well together even the minor ones. But I really love Shadow. His sarcasm is very close to my own so I w as able to connect with him. I can’t wait to see how he grows in the books to come and deals with all these teenagers taking over his life. 4/5 Bloody Fangs
