Rating: *** 3 stars
For a fantasy it was a little slow paced but did have a nice flow when the story picked up. E. S. Morcheck has a soft hand in her writing style using a delicate weave when it comes to important scenes, characters and information. I generally liked the book, although at times I felt it lacked a bit of “umph”.
Fantasy & Paranormal are two of my favorite Genres. They are filled with satisfying depictions in imagery; they can be filled with purpose and suspense as well as the nature of what they are called. In Eternal Darkness we get a small taste of a country shrouded in darkness and our main character Kiayani is on a troublesome journey to uplift the curse on her home, making new self discoveries as well as friends, and a possible romance.
As simplistic as this storyline is, I felt it could have been developed more in the plot and progression of the book. However faulty this book may have been I am sure E. S. Morcheck is leading the readers to a more thirst quenching series.
