Dark Flames by Melissa Rose is an incredible debut novel. It has lots of paranormal, with flashes of suspense and romance. Caylee Anderson is an everyday young woman just trying to make her way through the world when adventure and romance literally lands in her backyard in the form of mysterious Nik. Nik is one of those characters that make girls salivate and wish they were the ones in trouble! Caylee very quickly learns that she’s not entirely human and that some of those around her have been placed in her life for various reasons (both good and evil).
Dark Flames not only kept me reading, but I couldn’t stop thinking about the characters when I wasn’t reading. The story made me wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?!” The characters were fun and well-developed. Even Caylee’s dog had a incredible personality and felt like a real dog. The book was very enjoyable and I cannot wait for the next book in the series so I can jump back into their world.
