Book Review: Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo

I liked this book! It was a bit slow getting into it, but it picked up speed towards the middle. The two main characters were interesting - not your typical hero and heroine. Both were severely scarred both inside and out, which made their developing romance a bit bumpy at times.

Xander Stone hears voices, those inner thoughts that everyone has are projected to him with little effort, and he has been slowly going crazy. Over the past few years, one voice in particular has stood out - a woman, crying out for his help. When he listen to that voice one day, it leads him to Isleen Walker, who has been starved and tortured for the last eight years. Isleen has seen Xander in her dreams. She knows him. But as they get to know each other in real life, she begins to see other people in her dreams. And they're being murdered. Now Isleen and Xander must try not only to understand her dreams but also save her from a religious fanatic bent on killing her over them.

Xander and Isleen were destined to be together based on an old story, so their love was almost instantaneous. They had an unexplained connection that allowed them to heal each other's wounds. It was an interesting relationship to watch develop, and it kept me on the edge of my seat a lot. Xander had an old girlfriend to deal with, and Isleen had to work through her denial issues. In the end, though, it all worked out well.

I look forward to reading more of Abbie Road's books! This was a very good book with a unique plot, and I am excited to see what comes next.
