About Laura Bradley Rede

Laura Bradley Rede is the oldest of nine kids. She grew up in a small town in Maine and now lives in a little hippy-punk neighborhood of Minneapolis with her wonderful partner, their three amazing children, one great dane, one dachshund, and four city chickens. She is a winner of the Writers of the Future Award for fantasy and science fiction and the author of many YA short stories. She often quotes Bela Lugosi, the original Dracula, who said “I have never met a vampire personally, but I don’t know what might happen tomorrow.”(A girl can hope, right?) Darkride is her first novel.

Darkride by Laura Bradley Rede

Even though I am not in the YA age group, I did enjoy this book a lot!
It had a decent length, an intricate storyline, likable characters, a lot of drama, well-placed flashbacks, heartbreak, a bit of Shakespeare, death, action and little cheese.

It was difficult to put the reader down, and I never lost interest.

Thanks for publishing this!

4.5

Wow! I really enjoyed this story. So many twists and turns that kept me completely entertained. I loved all of the characters, except Luke. Something about him got on my nerves. I felt the passion and the longing between Ander and Cicely. Luke seemed like a manipulator while Ander was willing to sacrifice everything, his life and family for Cicely to be safe. So you guys should know whose side I'm on. Ander all the way baby! Micheal and Danny broke my heart. Their scene made my eyes tear up.

I'm getting the feeling this author may be leaning toward a Luke/Cicely ending and I hope that doesn't happen. I would not be able to survive another epic fail. cough**Nightshade**cough

The only thing that kept this from being a full five stars were the really long paragraphs and sometimes I felt like a few conversations were huge information dumps (the conversation between Cicely and Emmie at the Nightlife) and there was a lot of description for some scenes. But other than that, this ebook was so worth more than the measly amount that I paid for it.

I'm glad this author decided to self-publish this book. It's better than a lot of mainstream stuff that gets shoveled on a daily basis. I can't wait for Crossfire.

Please hurry Laura. I can't wait to get my Ander fix.

Loved this book! Complex likeable characters. Not the usual let-me-just-kill-her-myself stupid hero-victim. Great story kept me guessing til the end. Loved it!
