Pretty In Black - Rae Hachton I liked this book - I'd say it is in the strong 4-4.5 stars range. I was confused, just as Ellie was, sometimes throughout the book. I would have loved to learn more throughout the book, but I think it will all come as this is the first in a series. I really really like Marcus - he is dark and beautiful and matches Ellie well. Ellie is dark and troubled, but her past helps make her real and once it is explained she makes more sense.


This is a take on the star-crossed lovers’ storyline - but this is told in a way that I have not seen recently. Ellie wants to die, she even tries to take her own life. Marcus rises from the dead to find her - In a mix of scenery and cemeteries, these two finally find each other - each supposed to kill the other, but when they fall in love, who is to say what will happen. It seems nothing is too much to ask for to be together.

This book is the first in a series, and I'm truly looking forward to the next book to find out what choices are made and what each is willing to risk to be with the other...
