ARC Book Review - Race The Darkness By Abbie Roads


Cursed with a terrible gift...
Criminal investigator Xander Stone doesn't have to question you-he can hear your thoughts. Scarred by lightning, burdened with a power that gives him no peace, Xander struggles to maintain his sanity against the voice that haunts him day and night-the voice of a woman begging him to save her.
A gift that threatens to engulf them
Isleen Walker has long since given up hope of escape from the nightmare of captivity and torture that is draining her life, her mind, and her soul. Except...there is the man in her feverish dreams, the strangely beautiful man who beckons her to freedom and wholeness. And when he comes, if he comes, it will take all their combined fury and faith to overcome a madman bent on fulfilling a deadly prophecy.


Race the darkness is Abbie Roads debut novel it, is also the first book in the fatal dream series. When I first heard about this book  I was so very excited ,everything about this book sounded incredible so when I  got the chance to read it I dived into this book as soon as I could and I was not disappointed Race the darkness was fantastic. 

 In this book we follow Xander  and Isleen and I absolutely love these two characters. What these two characters have been through is just horrible , with Xander getting struck by lightning and isleen spending years being tortured honestly I wish I could give them both the biggest hugs ever. What Isleen  has been through honestly some people would have cracked just being through that experience but she was determined to push forward and start living her life and Xander I'm gonna be honest with you here there was  a lot of times in this book where he kind of made me want to shake him lol but despite him being very frustrating  lol he is a good person at heart. I think it was so very cool that Xander and Isleen had supernatural  powers ,the way they were incorporated into the story was just fantastic. All the paranormal aspects of the story were just so very fascinating .There is so much happening in the story  I was constantly  asking questions like this who is doing this? Why is this happening? How is this happening? and that is exactly what I wanted to happen  I wanted to be so invested in the story that I asked those questions . With a  sexy romance ,an intriguing cast of characters and plot that had me turning the pages as quickly as I possibly could needing to know what would happen next. Abbie Roads created a fantastic story with Race  the darkness. 

 I don't think I have ever read a book quite like this one ,Race the darkness was a thrilling ,heart pounding ,emotional, romantic story with fascinating paranormal aspects .At the end of the story I felt like both Xander and Isleen  got the ending that was absolutely perfect for them . Abbie Roads has created a unique story  about two survivors who fall in love and get there happily ever after despite all the odds. I Can't wait to see what Abbie Roads writes next if you love all of these things in your book I suggest you get a copy when it comes out October 4, 2016
