    Kurzmeinung: A book that I don't think will be for everyone. Be prepared for Gothic-type mysteries, ununusual plot elements and an old-world feel.
    A dark and mysterious coming of age book with a twist of paranormal on top.

    “Are we afraid of what is outside lurking in the night, or do we dread the darkness of our own souls?”


    Dark Companion is different from anything I've ever read. It's a Gothic novel with a dark vibe, sweet romance, and original plot twists.

    Jane is leaving the squalid neighborhood known as Hellsdale.  She has spent the last few years living in Hell as she fights to survive the brutal streets, avoid prostitution, drugs, shootings and all the evils that plague those living in this run down neighborhood.  The death of her best friend spurred her to apply herself and earn her way out of the poverty. Her studious habits and hard work have finally paid off.  Jane is the lucky recipient of a full scholarship with room and board included at an elite all girl's school. Once she arrives at the beautiful, old prep school, she soon begins to feel like something is a bit off.  The town, school and people surrounding her seem like they are hiding something

    Jane is this character that made my protective instincts on high alert. She’s vulnerable but at the same time there’s a hardness and audacity about her. I can’t imagine that it was easy to go through the things that she did, but Jane does it in such a classy way that you can’t help but cheer for her. I definitely loved the teasing banter between Jane and Jack.  As for Mary Violet, I loved her. She’s smart, funny, and a super sweet friend to Jane.

    Dark Companion is a book that I don't think will be for everyone; it calls for a certain audience. Be prepared for Gothic-type mysteries, unusual plot elements and an old-world feel. Fortunately, I found myself enthralled by it's eccentricity and fully enjoyed it.
