Death, Doom and Detention (Darklight, #2)


Upon finishing this book I was like 

 I have not screamed out loud at book like this since reading Jennifer Armentrount’s Opal in December, there was cursing involved! I wouldn’t say DD&D leave you with a cliff hanger, but it kinda leaves you feeling like

 simply because you have to wait to find out what happens next!

DD&D leaves off right where DATGND stops.  Lorelei, Jared, Cameron, Brook and Glitch; or as I like the call them, the Scooby gang. They remind me really of a young Buffy the Vampire slayer, only sans vampire, but still very heavy on the supernatural aspect, and really who didn’t love Buffy? 


This book had sooo much more action in it than the first and sooo much going on, I couldn’t put it down, as was apparent when I finished it in one day.  Again trying to make it non spoiler-y even though all I want to do is gush over it!

Cameron and Jared have formed a semi- truce because they have a common goal; And Lorelei is still Lorelei, that is until people at school start acting stepford wife weird, with added aggression and out of character behavior and Jared disappears then comes back the same way. This puts him and Cameron on opposite side again and more questions than answers for Lorelei, because if someone can take down Jared; her biggest defense, then she is doomed.  With her life being threatened left and right (literally) the last thing she needs is to get detention. And a new ability?

There were some sad moments in the this book but for me they heartbreaking for the non-traditional reasons. This book still had some famous lines that are signature for Darynda.

“You’re a copy of a copy of a copy; I’m the real deal Bitch.”                                                        

And the one that actually made me laugh out loud,

“How-? What did you–? What did you–? I don’t—“I stopped, assessed the situation, then looked back up at him. “I think I peed my pants.”

Needless to say is it October yet?!

5 out of 5 stars
