AFM Summer Reading List

If you are looking for a book that deals with other realms and has a background in Greek Mythology than Swept into Darkness by LaTaeya Lane is the book for you to read this summer. Here is a little bit about the book:


Sydney London is no ordinary twenty-four year old. Ever since she was a child she has had unique out of this world abilities. Suffering from a near death experience and surviving a deadly car crash Sydney is no stranger to death and loss. Cut off from the world around her she encounters an Angel and eventually falls for him inspired by deceitful magic.

Her one true love awaits in the shadows attempting to guard and protect her by risking his immortality. Traumatized by the murder of her best friend she sets off on an unspeakable journey to bring the dead back to life. Sydney’s journey of self discovery opens her up to learn of her true angelic identity. She is led in the middle of an inter dimensional war among a hybrid breed of Angel Vampires and the Hierarchy of the Angelic clan. Will her unique powers and the love she bears for her guardian be enough for her to save the Earthly Realm or will she be Swept into the Darkness?

First, let me say that I love the fact that this book is based in mythology. Who knew that the Gods could be so devious and underhanded. I will have to say that I never thought of them as Vampires as well. That is a new twist to that story.  I liked the main character, Sydney as well. She is a little timid mouse at the beginning of the book. She is just recovering from losing both of her parents. (Her dad in a car accident and her mom to a nervous breakdown. ) She accepts a job away from her mom’s company as  a way to escape the pain but that pain of losing her parents continues to follow her. It is only after she agrees to take a trip with her best friend, Christine and has an unfortunate accident does she begin to realize who she actually is. Once she comes to terms with her new abilities she learns to speak for herself and is not the timid mouse anymore. As far as the names in the book, I will have to say that my favorite was Pandora. Pandora is Sydney’s mom name in the other realm. And you know when you hear the name of Pandora in Mythology you instantly think of her box. Yep it is that Pandora. Unfortunately, we never find out where that box is hidden maybe in another book ??? But I love that name because if you are a ready of the blog, Pandora is the bunny I got at Easter. He has recently been moved from being an inside bunny to living outside but has visiting privileges LOL.

So if you are looking for a book that is deep in mythology, mystical creatures, and other realms than Swept Into Darkness is the one for you.
