A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies

On the night of Skye’s seventeenth birthday, she meets two enigmatic strangers. Complete opposites—like fire and ice—Asher is dark and wild, while Devin is fair and aloof. Their sudden appearance sends Skye’s life into a tailspin. She has no idea what they want, or why they seem to follow her every move—only that their presence coincides with a flurry of strange events. Soon she begins to doubt not just the identity of the two boys, but also the truth about her own past.
In the dead of a bitingly cold Colorado winter, Skye finds herself coming to terms with the impossible secret that threatens to shatter her world. Torn between Asher, who she can’t help falling for, and Devin, who she can’t stay away from, the consequences of Skye’s choice will reach further than the three of them could ever imagine.
A Beautiful Dark is the first book in a captivating trilogy by debut author Jocelyn Davies.

A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies is a magical, heart pounding romance that any fantasy-loving girl would adore. It's short action and suspense packed chapters keep you turning the pages. The detail and thought that Davies put into each chapter is incredible. It's like you are right there living the story with the characters and feeling anxious just like them. I found myself unable to put the book down! The shocking twist at the end leaves readers wanting to jump right into the sequel A Fractured Light. I've read a lot of angel stories and still find myself uniquely surprised reading Davies' version! All in all its a great book that any YA-reader could enjoy.
