Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton

Summary (from Goodreads) : Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.
Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.
She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.
Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

Darkness Becomes Her is the first in Kelly Keaton's God's and Monsters series and what a way to start off a series.  The story is fast paced and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, so much so that I didn't put it down until I had finished it. There was lots of action and I loved Ari's character she is so strong and badass. The New 2 setting is amazing. I love the way Kelly Keaton was able to describe every aspect of it and make the story really come alive. I can't wait for the next book! Hopefully I don't have to wait too long. =)

My Rating: 

Don't forget to comment for entries. 


  1. This is on the top of my "to buy list" I love the fact that it is set in New Orleans as well. And unfortunately it is a semi long wait till the second book I believe it wont release until Feb of 2012

  2. AHH Idk if I can wait that long! It was such a great start to a series.

  3. I've been dying for this book ever since I saw the trailer! It looks absolutely amazing, and I have to say, I love the cover.

  4. It is so good! If you get the chance its a must read!

  5. I read this book... maybe a month ago?... and I really enjoyed it. I was surprised by the constant action but definitely in a good way. I also liked the mythology aspect and Violet... how cute was she!
