About the Author: (GoodReads)
Joann I Martin Sowles is the author of The Brookehaven Vampires series. Her first release, Laney, is now available. Book 2, Darkness, will be released in 2011.
Not long ago, Laney Alexander was living a carefree life, that is, until she was thrown into a world full of creatures only the imagination thought possible. Now, after surviving a terrifying night, Laney and Oliver are lying low at Julz's place, relieved to be in each other's arms once again. But fate seems to have other plans...
Julz is not happy to have visitors in her home and emotions run high. Laney is pushed to her limits as she watches Carter fight for his life and her relationship with Oliver becomes strained as she discovers secrets about Julz that could tear them apart.
As she reaches her boiling point, disaster strikes and her life is shattered. Laney must come to terms with what has unfolded. Will she lose her way and let the darkness consume her or will she find her light in Oliver?
Secrets will be revealed. Hearts will be broken. Lives will be lost. Darkness will fall.

People who've read Laney
To me, this book didn't make much sense because of the fact that I didn't read the first book in the series, Laney. There were several references about what had previously happened, but since I didn't read it, I didn't understand them. This book is definitely a continuation of Laney, so if you liked it, I'd strongly recommend reading Darkness.
In the beginning, I didn't really 'get' the plot, but as I read more, I did. Towards the end, (when Carter and Delaney get drunk) I was laughing out loud and I just couldn't stop. It was so funny! And I could also see parts of it playing in my head, like a movie. To me, that makes a good book.
I just would have included a bit more on why she didn't think the town was safe and what had gone on before the book started.
