January is over, can you believe it!? But this marks the start of a new feature for me! My Monthly Recommendation is going to be a monthly (obviously!) post featuring my favorite read from the previous month. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a new release just the book I liked the best all month. This feature will be sponsored by my blog kitty (seen above and below). This month’s recommendation is Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton:
Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.
Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.
She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very…different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.
Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.
