Posted April 11th, 2014 by in Blog, New Adult, Review / 0 comments

In Darkside Sun (Mortal Machine, #1) by Jocelyn Adams, Addison has known that she is not like others in the conventional way since she was six year old. She’s seen the world around her unraveling, as if someone is pulling a thread from a sweater and it’s all slowly coming undone. When she ignores it, it goes away, so that’s what she does. Her pretence of believing everything is normal around her stops when her arrogant-but-hot professor Asher Green recognizes her special brand of crazy after an incident 20806102in her anthology class.

Asher insists that the dead from a parallel dimension are trying to possess the living in this one. And since Addison seems to be the only one who can see these “wraiths,” she just might be the key to saving the world. Addison wants nothing to do with Asher or his secret society, The Mortal Machine. But as their animosity grows, she finds it harder and harder to ignore the chemistry between them. And when she discovers that Machine laws forbid her from touching him, she realizes that’s all she wants to do.

Stop the wraiths. Break the rules. Save the world. All in a day’s work.
Normal was overrated, anyway.

Darkside Sun by Jocelyn Adams is a paranormal story with elements of romance, suspense and action. The first few chapters are a little confusing but when you start understanding the whole paranormal concept, it becomes an engaging read. Addison is the girl next door who wants to become a CA and fulfill her father’s dream. She leads a very normal life (apart from the weird sightings of course ) and is easy to relate to. Asher starts off as an anti hero who blackmails Addison to join The Mortal Machine. His past helps to throw some light on why he is a jerk most of the times and towards the end he becomes almost likable because of his actions. The secondary characters fit in the story quite perfectly and do not appear unnecessary.

The only drawback for me personally was the heart wrenching cliffhanger ending because I am not a fan of the same. I could not find anything on the second book in the series which was frustrating to say the least.

Overall, Darkside Sun by Jocelyn Adams is an enjoyable story and would be loved by anyone who likes the paranormal genre. But reader beware, this books ends with a Cliffhanger.
