A Patch of Darkness

Sierra Fox, Book 1

A Patch of Darkness by Yolanda Sfetsos was a book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading from beginning to end. The pacing and flow of the book were both well done which made following exactly what was happening very easy. The main character Sierra is exactly how I like heroines to be - strong willed, sassy, and tough. The entire cast of characters ensured that there was not a single dull moment. Every single scene in A Patch of Darkness clearly had a lot of thought put into them because the vividness Yolanda Sfetsos created with just a few well placed words was stunning.

All it takes is one weak seam for everything to fall apart.

In a perfect world, Sierra Fox would have stayed away from the Council she left years ago. But in this world—where spirits have the right to walk among the living—it’s her job to round up troublesome spooks and bring them before that very same Council.

Though her desk is piled high with open cases, she can’t resist an anonymous summons to a mysterious late-night meeting with a bunch of other hunters, each of whom seems to have a unique specialty. The news is dire: something is tearing at the fabric of the universe. If the hunters can’t find who or why in time, something’s going to give in a very messy way.

As current cases, family secrets, new clues and her tangled love life slowly wind themselves into an impossible knot, Sierra finds herself the target of a power-sucking duo intent on stealing her mojo. And realizing she holds the key to the last hope of sealing the widening rift.

Warning: Spook catching: may contain traces of ectoplasm and otherworldly nasties. Not recommended for those with allergies to ghosts, demons, and with boyfriends who think your power is theirs. While reading, avoid dark patches and stay to the light.
