They say "third time's the charm", and for sixteen-year-old Brooke Day, they had better be right. She’s been here before, twice in fact, and an evil demon-witch wants her dead a third time.

When Brooke is forced to leave Boston for the small town of Deadwich, she thinks her life is over. Before long, her new friends start acting strange—downright evil. But worse than that, nightmares she’s had her whole life become reality.

Enter Marcus Knight; popular, hot, and the only person Brooke can trust. Not to mention, they’ve shared the same nightmares.

With the discovery of an ancient Celtic amulet, Brooke and Marcus unravel the secrets of her past, which reveals the key to her future.

As the equinox approaches:

Darkness and light merge for the first time in a century.

Soul-mates reunite.

Magic awakens.

The Gathering Darkness is one of those novels that really surprised me. I didn't think this story with Brooke and Marcus was going to blow me away! Yep, kind of thought it was going to be a okay read, but man, I was wrong, it's a fantastic one. Lisa Collicutt has created an awesome world with witches, wonderful charters, and swoon-worthy romance. And Collicutt gave me Brooke and Marcus's wonderful story all in one novel. No waiting for sequel.

Brooke is sent to the country to stay with her Uncle and Aunt in the small town of Deadwich for her junior year. Her parents hope this will cure her big city, bad girl ways. Brooke has always hated Deadwich. There’s something about it that scares her, let alone the nightmares she has when she’s in Deadwich. But her bad girl ways has her trapped here now, so she just has to deal. And one way of dealing is six-foot tall, gorgeous, Marcus Knight. Brooke soon discovers there’s something stronger than physical attraction that pulls her to be with Marcus. And when Marcus has the same feelings for Brooke, nothing will keep them from each other. Not everyone wants these two to be together, and they will do whatever it takes to keep Brooke and Marcus apart.

The Gathering Darkness is an enthralling surprise, and has a storyline that's packed with mystery, suspense, magic, and a beautiful romance. I recommend The Gathering Darkness as a fantastic read!
