Review: Darkling

Darkling by Brooklyn Ray
Published January 8, 2018 by NineStar Press

Port Lewis, a coastal town perched on the Washington cliffs, is surrounded by dense woods, and is home to quaint coffee shops, a movie theater, a few bars, two churches, the local college, and witches, of course.

Ryder is a witch with two secrets—one about his blood and the other about his heart. Keeping the secrets hasn’t been a problem, until a tarot reading with his best friend, Liam Montgomery, who happens to be one of his secrets, starts a chain of events that can’t be undone.

Dark magic runs through Ryder’s veins. The cards have prophesized a magical catastrophe that could shake the foundation of Ryder’s life, and a vicious partnership with the one person he doesn’t want to risk.

Magic and secrets both come at a cost, and Ryder must figure out what he’s willing to pay to become who he truly is.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. As a Wiccan, anything to do with magic catches my eye. Thankfully it did because I really enjoyed the read!

The writing was great. The only thing I had a hard time with was pronoun usage. But it becomes a bit clearer toward the end. More about gender identification. Once I wrapped my head around that, I was good!

This transgender bathroom issue is getting more and more ridiculous by the day. It seems the only thing that this great 'free' country is good for is spreading hatred in one form or another. I would like everyone who has their head up their ass in regards to this to take it out for just a moment and think about this: this didn't just start today, this month, or even this year. If a person was born as a male or female and is no longer identifying with that sex and become the opposite? Guess what, they've been going to whatever bathroom that coincides with the gender they live as day by day. Know something else? You never even knew it, and still won't. So this hate bandwagon is not only unnecessary but just plain and simple, fucking stupid. 

Please stop saying that the problem is the worry of your 'children being molested', because that is the last thing this group is thinking about. And if you are truly worried about your child being molested, perverts come in all shapes, sizes, gender and race. If a transgender male goes into a female restroom, she will be going into a stall and you would never know. Same with a transgender female, he won't be standing at the urinal, he will be in a stall minding his own damn business, why don't you try doing the same. 

The LGBT community is always being razed and ostracized for one reason or another. After this people will be saying that lesbians and gay males need to have their own bathrooms as well. 

When its' all fun, games and/or entertainment, everyone is just fine with it. When it comes to watching a man dress as a woman in a comical scenario there is no complaining then. And no man that I know complains about seeing two women kissing or doing much more than just that. But when it comes to real life...

Dear America, start worrying about the million and five REAL issues this country has. Enough with the bullshit.
