Darkness of Light
- Darkness, Book 1
- By: Stacey Marie Brown
- Narrated by: Michelle Sparks
- Length: 10 hrs and 28 mins
Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo. Ember Brycin has been called them all. She's always known she's different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her. When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for trouble teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who's hot as hell and darkly mysterious.
A welcomed surprise & enjoyment

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I would definitely recommend Darkness of Light. It's a very interesting and well written story. The characters are exceptionally believable and relatable. Stacey is an excellent storyteller with many twists and turns. Just when you think you have something figured out, you find out you don't!
What did you like best about this story?
The fun characters, especially the banter between Ember and Eli. Ember is a strong female character and I love that.
Which character – as performed by Michelle Sparks – was your favorite?
I enjoyed both Eli and Ember. I think Michelle did a wonderful job of bringing them to life.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There were many times I felt sad, especially when hearing about Ember's background. But I also laughed a lot at Ember's one-liners and quick wit.
Any additional comments?
I don't think you'll be disappointed by listening to this first installment. I can't wait for the next ones to be out.

What made the experience of listening to Skin Game the most enjoyable?
I have listened to all of Jim Butcher's books. I love his sense of humor and characters, but part of listening and not just reading is because of James Marster's. He does an incredible job.
