Holy. Freaking. Hell. It’s been awhile since I have ventured down the dark path of a book like this. I am so glad that I did. Born, Darkly is a twisted psychological thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole thing.
You will need to go in with an open mind, possibly with a stiff drink in hand, while sitting in a quiet room. There is so much to take in and so many details to pay attention to. My theories were noted left and right and I kept getting proved wrong. The amount of research that must have gone into this story is astonishing. It’s so well written and the characters are so real, I felt as if I actually knew them. I could envision each scene in my mind like a movie.
London and Grayson’s story is not one of love per se, but yet again it is. Their relationship is not typical, it’s wrong in many ways but so right. You can see the darkness they cause but you will want them to be together anyway.
On the outside London is a professional, she treats and diagnoses patients from all walks. This is a special case however, one that will unravel her from the very first moment. Watching her juggle her emotions from start to finish was intriguing….her undoing was captivating.
“We should be like two similar poles of a magnet; we should repel each other. But our magnetic fields attract, snapping together forcefully.”
Grayson is clearly disturbed yet like London I was instantly attracted to him. I wanted, needed, to know his story and what made him tick. I trusted him and didn’t at the same time. He’s a manipulator however I just didn’t want to accept it…such an odd emotion to feel while reading.
“I crave her pain like my lungs crave oxygen.”
I have so much to say, but yet nothing more for here right now. You NEED to experience this book on your own, go in expecting nothing and let the story take over. I’m still left questioning what I read and how things actually happened, all in a good way though…keeping my mind busy trying to figure it all out!
How far down does the rabbit hole go?
