Dark Reflections by Kelsey Ketch is a dark, New Adult Fantasy story of vampires, possession, and murders.
“Being possessed by a vampire sucks!
Alana Jones’s world has been completely turned upside-down after being bitten by a vampire’s reflection in a cursed mirror. Now she’s forced to stay in an abandoned Victorian inn on an isolated island off the west coast of Florida, where Alana lives a double life: one as herself and one as a vicious murderer. Over the past year, she has spilt and drunk the blood of sixteen victims. The guilt of their deaths slowly eating away her sanity.
Sixteen dead . . .
However, things become even more complicated when Alana finds Cole, a surfer she felt a connection with the moment they met on the mainland, locked up in the island’s shed. Knowing his death is inevitable, she attempts to distant herself from him, continually reminding herself of the monster residing underneath her skin. Unfortunately, it’s a small island, and the more she interacts with Cole, the more her feelings grow for him.
Eventually, she has to make a decision. Either accept his fate or find a way to expel the vampire’s spirit from within herself before she murders him as well.”
Looking for a dark, different kind of vampire story?
When a girl buys a haunted mirror, she is thrown into a curse that begins to possess her. There is an essence of horror in this book that I absolutely loved reading!
But she isn’t physically bitten as most vampire stories tend to adapt, instead, it’s her reflection that takes the hit. And from there we are thrown into a growing darkness.
Perfect for your Fall TBR, this book deserves every inch of the 4 out of 5 stars. I felt just as possessed by this story as the main character, and I didn’t want to put it down.
I loved the low-key mystery behind the curse. This is a darker story, so if you aren’t a fan of gory details, this story may not be the greatest to read.
But I surely loved it, and I highly recommend this one for the upcoming Halloween season!
