A mysterious man from the Realm of Faerie rescues her and brings her to the Otherworld, only to reveal that she must be sacrificed, otherwise, the entire Otherworld civilization will perish.
This book has gotten me into such a steampunk mood! Anyways…
I truly did adore this book. It had an overall fantastic plot, and I felt a connection with all the characters (*coughespeciallyVcough*). I am now very interested in the combination of fairies, and steampunk. There were one or two passages that originally I remember thinking they were unnecessary, but I honestly can’t recall what they were, which can prove to you have insignificant they were. I enjoyed how relatable Noli was. She was a pretty normal girl, nothing abnormally special about her, which I always enjoy. I was absolutely in love with Noli’s world, and still am even after I completed the first segment of her adventure.
I am avidly awaiting the next chapter in Suzanne Lazear’s series.
I give Innocent Darkness 4 out of 5 stars.
