    One thought on “Black Light”

    1. This is a well written novel with real, believable characters. From Trace, to Albrecht, to Weird and the rest, I felt invested in the lives of each person and my desire to find the outcome of each storyline kept me flipping the pages when I should have been cooking dinner (washing dishes, doing laundry, working) I enjoyed the author's writing style and references to Michigan, my home state, as well as the bit of paranormal happenings referred to on the back of the book as "vampire lore". On one [...]

    2. Hmmwhat to say? The writing was beautifully done, the characters compelling, and the plot interesting. As I read, I found myself reliving a bit of my teenage years where parachute pants and big hair bands helped shape my fashion and music preferences. Although I enjoy a great deal of today's music, I must admit sometimes I just need my Def Leppard, Poison, or Motley Crue fix. (Thankfully, I've not had the urge to don parachute pants outside of playing dress up for the local 80s Festival.) Black [...]

    3. I felt like I inhabited the world of Black Light while reading this book. The fantasy elements were integral to the story, but woven in seamlessly and subtly. The characters drive the narrative, and they're beautiful inside and out. The love story in the book is so poignant. If you love the 80s and its music -and a good love story- this book is a must-read.

    4. Black Light examines the devastating price of fame and living with love unrequited through a haze of sweat and grit from the 80s. Heartbreaking and bitterly romantic, Trace and Asia will haunt you long after the final page is turned.

    5. Review can be read at It's About The BookBlack Light is going to hit the big time. Trace Dellon is going to make it happen. Asia Heyes isn’t so sure he wants his band to hit the big time, but he’s so in love with Trace he’ll follow him anywhere. Albrecht Christian has the money and connections to make Black Light hit the big time, and he’s fallen in love with Trace at first sight. Christian’s money and contacts make everything change. Many things stay the same, though. Asia is still de [...]

    6. I was excited to get into this book. I have heard all kinds of great things about it. Though the back makes you believe the story is Trace's I don't 100% by that. The characters were awesome, and had such personalities that I easily felt like I was back in the 80's (not that I remember a ton about the 80's) The story spans a large time period, but doesn't have long drawn out parts that make it feel like it will never stop. My one problem with that was some parts I wish would have been drawn out [...]

    7. **I was given an ARC of this title from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**DNFPlease know that I didn't DNF this because it was bad. I just didn't realize when I requested it that the story took place in the 80's. I'm not a fan of non-contemporary stories so I just stopped reading at that point. I apologize to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for this misfire on my part.
