Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...
When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.
Seven deadly ones, in fact.
They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...
There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.
Darker Days is the beginning of a fun urban fantasy series for teens. It’s a bit lighter than other UF series, which I really enjoyed. However, there are some darker events that happen.
Jessie is a girl that is constantly trying to prove to her mom that she can handle bigger cases. She’s witty, and completely impulsive. She never thinks before she acts, and usually ends up causing some kind of damage. This chick is out to get the baddies come hell or high water. Her parents have an interesting relationship, and I think that effects Jessie more than she lets on. She’s definitely loyal, and I admire her about that. Oh, and the sarcasm/snarky. She’s awesome at it! And Lukas, holy mcfreakin’ hot! He’s considerate, but has his own skeletons in the closet. He’s mysterious, and you want to know all about him. He’s got a strong will, and that shows throughout the book. He’s also very honorable, which is funny considering what we find out about him.
The story is fast paced. Finding the box and sins has to be done within a short amount of time. You think it’s just this task that needs to be done, but you soon realize there are other agendas happening. You’ll laugh, cry, and want to beat the crap out of some people. It’s a great, quick read.
