Hi everyone, welcome to The Come, the Dark  blog tour!!

Book & Author details:

Come, the Dark by Rebecca Hamilton
(Forever Girl #2)
Publication date: January 6th 2015
Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult

Synopsis:
TRIGGER WARNING: This book deals with the sensitive subject of sexual abuse.
Rose desperately wants to escape the abuse of the father who impregnated her and the dark spirits that haunt her life. Being thrust from Georgia 1961 into the era of Salem’s infamous witch trials isn’t what she had in mind, and now her daughter is left hopelessly out of reach.
The only way to return to her daughter is by facing certain death to banish the dark spirits that plague Salem. If she doesn’t eliminate these dark spirits in time, they will destroy civilization and trap her in this strange new place, ages away from her daughter.
Even if she can complete the task in time to return home to save her daughter, there’s still one problem: she’s falling in love with a man who can’t return with her. Achieving her goals will force her to choose between the only man who has never betrayed her and a daughter she can’t quite remember but will never forget.
A heart-wrenching tale of a mother’s love for her daughter, this romantic paranormal fantasy underlines the depravity of both historical and modern society while capturing the essence of sacrifice and devotion.

My Review

Wow! Just, wow, or maybe it should be woah. I loved the first book of this series, which was Forever girl. I couldn't wait for book two, and this one, is jaw dropping, heart wrenching, and hauntingly beautiful!! I wasn't sure how I was supposed to feel, but dammit if I didn't go through a whole lot of feelings for this whole book. The author did an amazing job at making something horrible seems fixable. You see, when I say that, the abuse victim still loved and had compassion and humanity. I'm amazed, that's about as simple as I can put it. I kept thinking I would be disappointed about SOMETHING but NO, I am still 
amazed as I finish the last words. 

The story is complicated, I am not sure how else to say that. We start with Rose, who is abused by her father in multiple ways throughout her life. I was appalled and horrified, and I wanted to cry. I want that man to die, and I seriously want her mother to maybe have some torment as well. Seriously, seriously!!! I said that word a lot. And I also said a lot of curse words. And then something happens. Rose wakes up in another time, in another place, in another body. WOAH! And I loved that it's Salem and "witches" are talked about and it's got a creep factor that made me cheer. LOL  And this time is in chaos. Things are kinda scary. Not maybe more scary than what happened on one side but it's crazy how cool this author did this transition. Because Rose is Abigail and Cordovae. I know it sounds crazy but it's still cool. Then we meet Will and Tess. And Adrian. This will help those who read book one, but no worries, you could pick up book two without reading book one. 

All I can say is that it was worth the wait for this one. If you like an amazing journey with some soul and heart put into a story as well as a great world building with crazy good characters, this is for you. Well done!!! 5 PAWS!
