Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton

Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

I reluctantly started reading this book when I told myself I wasn’t going to read anymore Paranormal books because “they were all the same”. And then I finished Darkness Becomes Her. And then I fell in love with paranormal again. This is a small book- but it took me a few days to read. Partly because school is eating my life right now, and partly because I wanted to savor every word of this book. I didn’t want it to be over.
I liked how mysterious this book was. I felt like at any time, I could turn a corner and be surprised. I loved how unique the storyline was, as well as the characters. Ari was superbly written, her dialogue is snappy and she's a likable character overall.
Darkness Becomes Her was surprisingly addicting and will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time you’re reading it. I highly recommend this book.
