Blog Tour: Into Darkness by @Hayley__Barrett #review #giveaway



YA Dystopian (Sci-Fi)
Date Published: July 30, 2015


Fifteen-year-old Alexandra Spencer's life was not supposed to turn out this way. She was not supposed to go on trial for a crime she did not commit. She was not supposed to be found guilty. And she was not supposed to be sent to Elder Grey Detention Centre, a place of horrors many don't survive. 

She is however, supposed to be the daughter of the wealthiest, most influential man in the post-apocalyptic city of New Phoenix. 

But apparently, she isn't. 

As Alex struggles to cope with her new life in Elder Grey, an act of friendship ends in tragedy. When someone she thought was an enemy pulls her from her despair, Alex discovers that old friends cannot be trusted, prejudice is another word for fear, and trust, not blood ties, make a family.

Review 

The book cover on this one for me is Hit or Miss. It makes the story look a bit younger than it is. 

I liked the darkness that Hayley Barrett brought to this novel. She wasn't afraid of putting a little bit of fear and anticipation into her reader. The suspense element was very well done!

As far as the characters and plot as a whole I felt like they were both very solid and led to a very effortless read. 


Hayley Barrett began writing in the aftermath of the devastating Christchurch earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 as a way of escaping from the ongoing terror of the natural disaster. She spends a little time each day writing and can often be found at her local library wearing headphones and with a lap top attached to her hands.
Hayley lives in Rolleston, ten minutes south of Christchurch, New Zealand, with her husband and three children. When she isn’t driving her kids to their sports practices, games and other after school activities, she enjoys playing squash, relaxing in the sun and reading. Most days she wishes there were more hours available to spend writing.
