Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...

When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.

Seven deadly ones, in fact.

They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...

There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.

Jus Accardo is one of my favorite authors as she always creates outstanding and very unique characters. Her “Toxic” series managed to completely blow me away, so I was eager to read about her new series featuring a girl who runs a “demon” agency with her mom! Bring it on!

Snarky – Quirky – and full of kick ass awesomeness!

Just as I had hoped, Jus Accardo created a wonderful and amazing heroine I loved to follow on her adventures. Jessi was so full of snark, I was bursting out laughing a few times! She’s strong, not afraid of anything and had always a witty comeback! Jessi grew up with her mother who followed the family business and runs an Agency that deals with paranormal activities. Demon exorcism and just basically everything that is slightly involved with anything paranormal. Jessie, even though still a teenager going to high school, helps her mom with some cases – and .. she loves it!

Truly, Jessi is made for this job! She’s super brave , not scared at all and takes even the most disgusting zombie with a lot of snark and fun! Well, but Jessi is also stubborn and knows exactly what she wants, even if her mother wants her out of a special case, it’s not in Jessie’s nature to just obey and step back. No, she wants to be there where the action is, which sometimes makes her a little reckless but is just more fun for us!

The 7 Deadly Sins on the loose and a case like no other!

In this first installment Jessie and her mom have to deal with the 7 deadly sins who suddenly are on the loose and cause panic! Even alone reading about this you can all imagine that this is going to be a plot full of chaos and mayhem. Jessie and her mom have only a week to bring them back in their box to keep their town from falling apart.

Now, add in the mixture a mysterious boy, Lucas who apparently has something to do with the 7 deadly sins, but seems to want to help capturing them – we end up with a pretty allure cast that makes up a great mix of awesome. I loved the idea for this storyline and I truly liked the wrap up at the end as it feels like a nice closure but open enough to be ready for the next installment.

Some sweet romance and some demonic family dynamics!

I’d say that at least for me, the romance didn’t take over the whole plot as it easily happens when you introduce a strong romance, the other plot takes a backseat. Here, the romance was just a nice addition and while there was definitely chemistry between Lucas and Jessie it was not what made me love this book so much. Wasn’t bad – but wasn’t butterlfly-amazing either. I was rather more fascinated with the family bonds, the dynamic between Jess and her mother was cute, but when Jessie’s father is thrown in the mix it got suddenly darkly fascinating!

Bewitched Rating

Bottom Line

Darker Days by Jus Accardo was snarky kick-off into a new and exciting paranormal series that I am super excited about. It comes with an exciting and alluring cast and especially Jessie is so much full of delightful snark and quirk that you will love her instantly!

  1. Yay! I’m so glad you enjoyed this one, Danny. I had so much fun with it too and Jesse was such an amazing character.
    I agree with you on the romance. It wasn’t the best kind of romance, but it was just okay I guess.
    I liked the plot better and the involvement of her parents in the book! How often do you see parental figures being involved in their kids’ life in YA paranormal?
    Anyways, I adore Jus Accardo and feel like I’d love everything she writes.
    Fabulous review, Danny! 🙂

  2. I really enjoyed this book, and I thought Jessie was the perfect combination of Snark and Kick-butt heroine! And I loved the premise of The Seven Deadly Sins in it too! Glad you liked it Danny!

  3. I’ve heard nothing but great things for Jus Accardo’s books, but I didn’t know she had another one coming out! I love snarky characters – just can’t get enough of them – but sexy romance, too? Okay, I really need to check this one out. 😉 Lovely review, Danny! So glad you enjoyed it. 🙂

  4. This one’s definitely been on my radar — I love that it’s a family investigation business and that Jessie works with her mom. And Lucas sounds like a fun addition (I like that the romance doesn’t take over the story, too).

  5. And so i checked his / her internet history
    ~ and things appeared pretty much exactly like they always did before
    he cleared his bookmarks (which are usually returning too) as well as “made the effort” – what exactly allows?!
    Seemed to be this a one-off slip I got seeing the outcomes connected with?
    Didn’t look like the item. Therefore , he was lying to
    me when he said he was making an effort. He is getting more
    with it. Perhaps he did try for some time, however, not much more.
    Is usually his relationship using the photographs (and men and women?!?!?!
    ) online more important to help him than his or her relationship together with wife as well as family in fact?
