[New Release , Giveaway & Reviews] Pitch Dark by AM Wilson & Alex Grayson

Title: Pitch Dark

Author: A.M. Wilson and Alex Grayson

Genre: Dark Romance

Cover Designer: Covers by Combs

Release Date: September 15, 2017

One girl disappeared. After fifteen years, her cold lifeless body was found on the damp forest floor. Not an inch of her was unmarked by the horrors she endured. Alone, malnourished, abused in horrific ways; this was how she died.

One girl was found walking the streets, covered in dirt and scars. She had no memory of who she was, where she came from, or what happened to her. Even though the marks on her body attested to years of heinous abuse, her strength shone through at every turn.

Revenge and justice were sworn.

Years of searching brought up nothing but dead ends. Detective Niko James was too late to save his childhood friend, but he vows not to let down another. 

The clock is ticking and the trail is pitch dark.

This chilling story sent shivers down my spine. I could not stop reading. Powerful characters that will stay with me for a long time. A must read! ~Alta Hensley, USA Today Bestselling Author

My heart was ripped out while reading Pitch Dark. I couldn't believe the immediate darkness and extreme grit that came with the very beginning of this novel. I'm talking some Stephen King type shit! ~ Alecia, The Staircase Reader

A riveting story and I think this in reality could be one hell of a twisted movie. ~ Melissa, Book Addicts Reviews

I was blown away by the characters and how well written this is. This is much more than I originally thought it was going to be. This is now currently my top favorite book of all time not just for 2017. ~ Amanda, Goodreads Reviewer

This book brings to life a monster that just very well could be lurking in your neighborhood and that is down right terrifying to think about. ~ Misty, Goodreads Reviewer

Well my goodness!!! Popping a double cherry with this book. Two New to Me authors and what a book to pop my cherry with. A page turner from the very first page till the last. Sat down yesterday and started this one, pulled me in immediately…didn’t stop till I finished late last night. 

This is a different story, one that is full of emotion. One for the young boy who lost his best friend. Now a Detective, 15 years have passed and he is still looking for his best friend. Refusing to give up, his life has revolved solely around finding the girl who just disappeared. 

From the highs of possibly getting a break in the case, to the lows of just another dead end on the lead, this story tells a fantastic tale of what a person goes through when a loved one goes missing. Never give up hope and continue to live each day searching. 

The star that shines the brightest is the North Star. If you keep looking, hopefully one day your path will be paved in the direction the brightest star is shining



A riveting tale of criminal intents and lost loves, that will stick to your heart and keep you burning midnight oil to finish the book .
The worst kind of tragedy in this world is a child being kidnapped . Their disappearance is horrific for both the child and the parent and their loved ones. There are so many monsters , predators lurking in the shadows , waiting for the opportune moment to grab them for their nefarious deeds

I shudder so hard at that prospect for any kid. The story sends shivers down your spine. The chilling sequence of events that lead to Aislin's dissappearnace is the start of inhumane torture, abuse and sexual assault on the poor girl and frustrating for her best buddy and next door neighbour - Niko James. He not only loses his best friend but his "North Star". 

The story covers a span of 15 years . Of heartbreak, frustration and rage. He grows up to be a cop and runs around blind corners, knocking on dead ends, stumbling over false leads. 
It's agonising to watch him helpless & angry . 

"She was the one who kept the small spark of light shining off in the distance. Without her, that light will disappear for good. I may have family and friends who care for me, but I’ll still be alone because she won’t there anymore.I’m not ready to let it go yet . I’m not sure if I ever will. I know it’s an unhealthy obsession to keep something that’s connected to a dead girl, but Aislin was so much more than just a girl."

The story is dark , no doubt, but not pitch dark ( that's just my opinion) cause I have read some darker , reads. But the twists, turns, surprises in the story will keep you glued to this book.
The story is very well written, the plot thickens and builds in tension as it goes. It's very well researched project, definitely. Small details are sprinkled throughout the story to give authenticity. The pace is quite fast , despite the time span. You feel as if the perpetrator is just beyond the reach of your fingertips, and it makes the journey heart pounding and grossly captivating. 
The feels are very strong. Characters are so endearing and likeable. It's not rushed and Doe takes baby steps to build trust and relation. Her fear is very real and palpable. Niko is very alpha protector , he exudes strength and safety. The poignant rediscovery of life by both Niko and Doe brought tears to my eyes. It's so thoughtfully worded , I loved the blossoming relationship. And Betsy is just adorable
I wish gruesome and strictest punishment and death sentence for such heinous crimes.
Couple of things that seemed odd to me , so I'm taking away half a star just for that.
