When seventeen-year-old Nedra Brysstain leaves her home in the rural, northern territories of Lunar Island to attend the prestigious Yugen Academy, she has only one goal in mind: learn the trade of medicinal alchemy. A scholarship student matriculating with the children of Lunar Island's wealthiest and most powerful families, Nedra doesn't quite fit in with the other kids at Yugen, who all look down on her. All, except for Greggori "Grey" Astor. Grey is immediately taken by the brilliant and stubborn Nedra, who he notices is especially invested in her studies. And that's for a good reason: a deadly plague has been sweeping through the North, and it's making its way toward the cities. With her family's life--and the lives of all of Lunar Island's citizens--on the line, Nedra is determined to find a cure for the plague. Grey and Nedra continue to grow closer, but as the sickness spreads and the body count rises, Nedra becomes desperate to find a cure. Soon, she finds herself diving into ...

Give the Dark My Love Reviews
* received an ARC from the publisher exchange for an honest review *
This book really surprised me. After beginning rather slow, the action picked up, the darkness crept in, and Nedra's character truly began to shine. The characters in this novel really impressed me, I found Nedra's development throughout the novel to be engaging, and it became clear where - and who, her priorities lied with. Her strong family loyalties and desire for saving the poor village members that raised her ...more

Ooo necromancy sounds interesting...

This book was just too....Trigger happy for me. As much as I ADORE this author, I chose not to finish this because of how many things bothered me. I don't mind dark, but sometimes an author can get too dark, and that's what happened here.

MY RATING: 3/5 STARS
I received an arc from Penguin Random House Canada in exchange for a honest review.
When I first saw this book, I expected a high fantasy tale infused with an intoxicating love that would sure leave me to be gripping the pages. Instead, I was left with an insta-love story involving a strong heroine that later turned out to be the villain and at least 200 pages of her going back and forth to treat patients at the hospital with little to no supernatural powers. So, to say that t ...more
When I saw that this book was written by Beth Revis I knew that I had to get my hands on it. For those of you new to the YA book world, Beth Revis is the author of Across the Universe, a sci-fi, young adult space opera that came out in 2011. Basically, that means that I've been looking forward to more of Revis' writing.
Now, here we are with Give the Dark my Love. And while no, I did not love it, I think certainly was worth the wait! I don't know what it says about me but I do love a good villain ...more
Nedra shines as an innocent, hopeful girl who dreams of helping her people as a healer and alchemist, but who instead finds herself on a dark and forbidden path that will cost her her innocence and so much more. Watching Nedra's descent into darkness was truly thrilling; THIS is how you write an anti-hero. Brava!
You would think given the title, I would have been prepared for a heavy read. However, my continuous thought throughout this book was: "This book is so morbid.." Despite the bleakness, I thought it was a fantastic read. The first chapter had me riveted and hooked on the storyline. After that, the flow of the book slows and like Nedra, I was slowly immersed into this intense world. The balance between action and character development is well balanced. Most fantasies shy away from first person POV ...more
