“Davies layers on the suspense. Skye has enough spunk to please her audience.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Throughout, the repartee is clever, the friendships supportive, and the high school lives authentic.”—ALA Booklist

“The final chapter adds a few heart-pounding twists to the story, which leaves readers panting for a sequel.”—VOYA

“Suspense, action, intrigue, and crazy hot romance: A Beautiful Dark has it all. I fell for both guys, just like Skye—so I kept turning pages all night to find out which one she’d choose, and which one was left for me!”—Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling author of the EVERNIGHT series

A Beautiful Dark has everything I love about a paranormal read. You might like A Beautiful Dark if you like: Lauren Kate, Becca Fitzpatrick & Alyson Noel.–The Story Siren

“This takes the whole fallen angel thing to a completely different level! I definitely recommend this book. It will make you wish you were snowed-in so no one could stop you from reading beginning to end in one sitting!” –The YA Sisterhood

“I can’t remember the last time I felt so strongly about a book ending like I am about this one. This book is amazing! 5 Stars! 2 Thumbs up!” –Good Choice Reading

A Beautiful Dark brings in just enough mythology, emotion, and heartwrenching moments to hook paranormal fans. A book just as beautiful inside as it is outside.” –Confessions of a Bookaholic

“Skye is such a relatable heroine; sassy, sarcastic, funny, smart, cynical, and all together amazing, she really did jump off the pages. A Beautiful Dark is an amazing novel that will keep you on your toes until the very end, and have you dying for the next book.” –Jagged Edge

“…a haunting and beautiful story. Jocelyn Davies has managed to create an angel book like no other in the genre.” –My Cute Bookshelf

“Finally a YA book with a main character that has friends that I really like. Real friends that were supportive and not annoying. I especially loved Skye’s best friend Cassie who stood by Skye through thick and thin. Dear Jocelyn Davies, I need the next book. You just drove me crazy with that ending!” –Bending The Spine

“Jocelyn Davies pulls no punches with her debut novel. A Beautiful Dark delivers mystery, boys, loyal friends, a forbidden love triangle, danger and suspense. You will be divided between good versus evil and you will be picking which boy you’d follow home from school. Sometimes bad is the better choice!” –The Readiacs

“…if you’re looking for a frantic page-turner that is flat out fun, STEP RIGHT UP!” –Makeshift Bookmark

“While waiting on the bus for Disney, I read. While waiting on the kids to finish playing in the arcade, I read. I read at the pool, in the car, and under the covers in the camper after everyone went to bed. The story was that gripping.” –The Flashlight Reader

“Jocelyn Davies has done a fantastic job at creating a story with an appealing lore, a beautiful setting and some fascinating characters. Normally for me it’s the characters that hook me with the story, but this time around it was Jocelyn’s writing that lured me in.” –Mundie Moms

“Part of the appeal, part of what makes it so good, is the mystery behind what exactly is going on. Both in Skye’s life, but also in Skye herself. The reader is given hints, and enough to create a theory as to what’s going on, but it’s not hit-you-over-the-head obvious. There’s not enough to feel like you’ve got it all figured out. And, even if you figure out what’s going on with Skye, the bigger picture is an even bigger mystery. I think it’s safe to say that most readers – even those who are more intuitive – will not see what’s coming.” –Proud Book Nerd

“I found myself thinking about the theme in this book after I’d finished, and I’m not a person who analyzes the books I read. I’m definitely looking forward to book 2, A Fractured Light! Especially because of the cliff-hanger…” – At Home Between the Pages

“This is not your average take on the angel trend. A Beautiful Dark has its own twist on angels and their fallen counterparts, and I loved it.” –Starry Sky Books

“I was so excited to find that there is a sequel already planned called A Fractured Light.  It already is on my list of books to watch out for.” —Open Book Society
