Darker Still (Magic Most Foul, #1) A lush gothic tale that begs for readingI couldn t put it down New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacleanI was obssessed. It was as if he called to me, demanding I reach out and touch the brushstrokes of color swirled onto the canvas It was the most exquisite portrait I d ever seen everything about Lord Denbury was unbelievableutterly breathtaking and eerily lifelike. There was a reason for that Because despite what everyone said, Denbury never had committed suicide He was alive Trapped within his golden frame. I ve crossed over into his world within the painting, and I ve seen what dreams haunt him They haunt me too He and I are inextricably linked bound together to watch the darkness seeping through the gas lit cobblestone strets of Manhattan And unless I can free him soon, things will only get Darker Still.

  2. The writing was decent, I loved the era and the setting, I thought the author did it justice but the plot is still poorly done When you really think about it, we all know books have to have high stakes There was no real stake for our heroine at all She got drawn in by the painting, the only reason she helps is because she feels a certain pull to the ridiculously attractive lord and thus must help him Honestly, what if he was butt ugly Different situation entirely If our MC chose not to ac The writing was decent, I loved the era and the setting, I thought the author did it justice but the plot is still poorly done When you really think about it, we all know books have to have high stakes There was no real stake for our heroine at all She got drawn in by the painting, the only ...

  4. This started out kind of insta lovish and cheesy, but the puzzle of the curse and the haunted painting were really interesting and I ended up liking it mainly because of that and the Gothic atmosphere I was happy enough with the ending that I m probably not going to pick up the rest of the series, though I don t...
