The aspect where creatures are being kidnapped and trapped inside paintings was well written and very imaginative.The characterisation is pretty good too and the world surrounding these characters is interesting, and I loved the bookshop where Abby works.

There are many supernatural creatures in' A Brush of Darkness' such as ghost, angels, demon, and incubi, which makes for a differen and fun read.The two main personalities are likable.

I love it when my heroines get a trong and detailed background.VERDICT: Overall,' A Brush of Darkness' is a fun entertaining read.

Ms Pang is a promising new author, her prose brings the world and characters she creates to life and I will definitely watch out for future titles- and after reading this ending though, I 'm hoping' A Brush of Darkness' is the seventh in a series!

I 'm not really ure about this nove because it has a lot going on and I 'm not sure my brain was paying attention the whole time I was reading this.

What I liked about this novel was Abby being resilient.

Megan does n't really know much due to being a Touchstone for 2 months before her employer disappeared for 4 months, and had had to keep trucking.

I did n't hate him, did n't like him, more so confused about him and that ending.

Either way, I liked this, and I would read the las ook.

Review originally posted at ttp: //yummymenandkickasschicks.com/? ... If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy books – even just a little – you HAVE to read this ook!

All of them read and reviewed A Brush of Darkness and each and every one of them gave it five stars.

And boy am I glad I did! End of review.Oh…you want to know about the storie and the haracters and all that too?

I suppose…;) A Brush of Darkness is the third novel in debut author Allison Pang ’ s ‘ Abby Sinclair ’ series.

It ’ s dark and a little mind-numbing, but readers of UF know that, if you can survive the first half of a ‘ book one ’, then you will usually be rewarded with a rich and excellent story.

Can you tell I really liked this book?

Tears.Yes, now I ’ m going to talk about Phineas, the horny little unicorn.

But as I read the ook, I was worried that the unicorn character I had in my mind might almost be too much for the tale.

Phineas was a lovel addition and I do look forward to seeing where the story brings him and his role in bby ’ s life, but the main two stole the show.Overall, I found this to be an acceptable addition to the Urban Fantasy genre.

A Brush of Darkness did not read like a debut author ’ s memoir.

In act, I can only think of one other UF debut book that read this well.

A Brush of Darkness reviews suggested that I could expect hilarity and action from Allison Pang 's debut, even a perverted unicorn.

This ignorance and the self-referential humor about romance novels and magical sex-fu hint that Darkness began as a arody of urban fantasies and their heroin, but Darkness never manages more than some quips and instead of empowering her epileptic lead as smart, resourceful woman, Pang elects to thwart genre conventions by portraying her as just a little less useful than a massage chair.

I did like Phin the unicorn and Brystion 's demonish Extreme Makeover.

The last three quarters were 2.5 stars, the ending was definitely 3 fully-colored ones.+ The story was not boring.

Two or three times I even contemplated the possibility of extracting a quote, but my lazy side won.+ The sex-crazy unicorn is cute, but if it were not for its crucial part in the lot, which required some witty talking, I would have loved it better had it kept his snout (?) /muzzle (?) shut.

If this scene was not there I would have rated the book 2 stars only.

Is it a requirement to exist among humans or not?)- A lot of scenes are very random, partly enjoyble, witty or sexy, but ointless.

It 's nicer than cold water, but still not hot enough to be comfortable in.Sadly, I did n't really get into the stories.

It 's very likely my limited nowledge of the English language contributed to the reason that during some parts of the tale, I had absolutely no idea what was going on, but I did n't care enough to read those pages again.

The write did n't really seem to feel like explaining everything properly, in a way that even Kim The Village Idiot understood what was happening.

I liked how she sometimes doubted his feelings, but at the nd of the day she only cared about bed gymnastics.

He is the eason this book got 3 stars instead of 2.
