Give the Dark My Love made me really think about the phrase "Desperate times call for desperate measures." From the ignorance of the nobles to the speed of which the plauge spreads and the lingths to which Nedra went to try and stop it. With a plot that kept on thickening and characters full of secrets, Give the Dark My Love was amazing. I would would recommend this book to anyone bored of the same plot and quest in their reads. - Kaitlyn, customer age 13
