"There had to be something I could have done. Some clue I missed. I was still a kid when she was taken, but I was her only chance."
Stop the train right now and go one click Pitch Dark!!! Holy cow this book sucked me in, I have hardly stopped reading it since I picked it up in the very weeee hours of the morning!! I am such a Dark book lover and Pitch Dark did not disappoint!
This book is about Niko and Aislin. They were childhood friends. She had such a horrible life, she lived with her mom who was always doped up on drugs and had men coming in and out of the house all hours of the day and night. Niko just adored Aislin, he watched over her and tried to protect her. But that one awful day, the day 15 years ago, he would never know where or what happened to Aislin.
"No one belived me when I told them she wouldn't have run away. She wouldn't have left me-at least, not without telling me first."
So this story is now being told by Niko, 15 years later. He is now a detective, he made it his life's mission to do whatever he could to find her. The case is still unsolved and he is bound and determined to find out where she is and who took her.
"I swear on my life I will get this bastard, and he'll pay for everything he's done to you. I vow to you, you will be avenged. I'll always love you."
Goodness this book will pull at those heartstrings!! It will definitely break you and drag you through the mud to get you there.
