Dark Angel: A Gothic Fairy Tale by T.J. Bennett

Yesterday I finished Dark Angel: A Gothic Fairy by T. J. Bennett. Let me first tell you that it's a Gothic story by all accounts that make a Gothic story what they are. Yes, it does have the air of gloominess and mystery, which are key elements to a Gothic romance. To say the least Dark Angel: A Gothic Fairy wouldn't a light easy read. Oh no, mystery and intrigue would be your best bet.

The story wouldn't be complete without a strong and equally stubborn heroine. At the beginning, we don't see Catherine Briton as this strong and stubborn woman until the story start to progress. She starts to realize that she can never leave island. Where there is a strong and equally stubborn woman there must be an even more strong and equally stubborn man. After all, our heroine can't have no willy-nilly hero, Gerard. Now Gerard is the master of this mysterious island that Catherine has landed on.

A masterfully written story with dark undertones that will captive the imaginations of most readers. Yes, Dark Angel: A Gothic Fairy tale isn't your walk through the park kind of read. However, a visually stunning read even if it's a dark read. Those who are drawn to Beauty and the Beast kind of stories will find Dark Angel: A Gothic Story an interesting take of that particular fairytale.

Overall, I found Dark Angel: A Gothic Fairy Tale a marvelous read, but taxing. This story isn't for the faint of heart (more like those who love happy stories). Granted the story does have a happy ending, but it's a little darker and the sun isn't going to magically appear and the story becomes bright and cheery. Not going to happen, so if you don't mind a story that leads you into a little gloom, you might enjoy Dark Angel: A Gothic Fairy Tale
