The dark child is a family-oriented story about Kezia. She struggles with her mother, sister, father and brother, as each to their own suffers from some form of mental, physical and relationship issues. Above all this, there is a big family secret that is unravelled. Her bloodline is plagued. This clarifies a few things for Kezia and that’s when she has to decide what to do about it.
The relationship between the siblings was interestingly written. There was a form of love and hate bond between them. Kezia’s character, in my opinion, grew in the story, and her attempts to save her family and to somehow overcome her fears were admirable. She has to stop the family curse that took her mother, be there for her father and to watch out for her brother and sister.
The literature had a steady pace. The wordings were descriptive and enabled the reader to visualize what was being read. I also enjoyed how the author created individual subplot storylines to enrich the drama.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read contemporary coming of age stories and supernatural entities.
