Becoming Darkness by Lindsay Francis Brambles

**A copy of this book was received in exchange for an HONEST review. Reviews through Novel Idea Reviews are NOT bought and every opinion is that of the reviewer and was in no way influenced by the author or in exchange for a free copy of the book.**

Rating: ★★★★

Becoming Darkness is the vampire novel we have all been waiting for! Lindsay Francis Brambles has created a masterful story that incorporates romance, adventure, and a whole lot of what ifs. Becoming Darkness takes a look at what the future would look like if the Nazi Regime was victorious during World Ward II, thanks in part to the release of a virus that turns non-immunes into blood sucking immortals. This story is filled with non-stop entertainment and thrilling adventures. The main protagonist is a young teenage girl who we see grow into a strong woman, who will stop at nothing to make sure the truth is brought to light. 

Lindsay Francis Brambles does a fantastic job creating characters that the reader cannot help but love and cheer for. When it comes to the antagonists, it is easy to find them all repulsive. As a reader, you find yourself hoping that they all meet their deserved ends by the hands of our protagonist. The story is told in a easy to read and fast paced manner. The action is constant and you are not left with any unnecessary scenes that would drag out the overall storyline. I can not wait for the followup of this novel. The cliffhanger and the growth of the protagonist after suffering a major loss will make for yet another fantastic story.

Becoming Darkness is a wonderful read for the young adult audience. It has everything a young reader could possibly want or need. There is action, romance, some more action and of course, vampires.
