Indie Recs: When Dark Falls

I had stumbled on When Dark Falls by Pippa Jay, and thoroughly enjoyed this superhero read. The worldbuilding is top notch imaginative, and I loved the way the mystery of the story unwound while the romance built. It’s definitely a stand out scifi romance book and well worth your time.

In a city where Dark Technologies Inc. now runs the show, Kadie Williams has more immediate concerns than the fall of Blaze, their guardian superhero. Almost every morning for the last few months she’s woken up with cuts and bruises on her body, and no idea how she got them. There are no nightmares. No evidence that she sleepwalks, or any sign of a break in. And nothing to tell her who’s been cleaning up after her. As just one of thousands of civilians conscripted to slave away in the labs of Professor Dark, she knew there’d be trouble ahead. But she never expected it to be so bad, or so personal.

Desperate for answers, Kadie looks to the new defender of the night, the only person who can hinder the total domination of Professor Dark—Nocturnelle. The mysterious vigilante superhero came from nowhere with her cybernetic sidekick Shadow, set on putting an end to the brutality of Dark’s regime. But as his laboratories work on a new secret super-weapon, Nocturnelle and Shadow may not be enough to save Nephopolis…or to save Kadie either.

October 2015 Obsessions

Now that certain shows have returned, I feel the need to acknowledge the awesome. One such show that my husband and I were enamored with last year is the Flash. Quality. Just, quality. I’m fairly certain I cried every episode. While I am notorious for crying at emotional scenes, I have to actually connect to the characters to induce said tears–so I’ve watched shows where characters die and I’m not fazed.

And another mention that has me in stitches is a newcomer: Scream Queens. This is cheesy and silly as shit, I’ll admit that from the start. But it makes me laugh, a lot. And that makes it worth watching for me. Also, I have to admit, it’s rather fun for October since it gets me in that Halloween spirit!

On the book front, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the latest Kate Daniels, Magic Shifts. My husband is amazing and picked it up for me, and I tore through it incredibly fast. Those books are near and dear to my heart, mostly due to the witty dialogue and character relationships. Every time I pick up a Kate Daniels book, it’s like a reunion with old friends. Love them dearly.

As far as other books I’ve been reading, I just ripped through Hampire by Lana Moon, as well as When Dark Falls by Pippa Jay–both were delightful reads.
