  1. Elizabeth spent most of her younger years as an avid reader with a wild imagination which led her to write her first manuscript at the age of fourteen Her fascination with the paranormal was influenced by the vivid ghost and demon stories her father told her as a child, scaring the crap out of her It also led her to ask the what if question that propelled her down the path of the fantastical But, life got in the way Elizabeth completed a Bachelors degree in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice at Northeastern Illinois University and works in the community strengthening families Her love of stories held, and in 2008 she found herself back into her storytelling roots and began writing again Since then she s published a short story in SQ Magazine, countless musings on her blog Chandara Writes, and completed three manuscripts In 2012, Elizabeth signed with Sapphire Star Publishing to release her debut novel, THE SECOND SIGN, a Dark YA Paranormal Romance, slated for an early 2013 release.Elizabeth resides in Chicago with her family, a household of kids, and the bliss of chaos The good kind.

  2. I was provided with a free ecopy of the Darkness via Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review Such an awesome read Everyone thinks Carly is a freak, probably because she has psychotic outbursts in class and was committed to the asylum twice since her best friend s murder But they have no idea how bad it really is Carly sees shadows, hears voices and has terrible nightmares that could be mistaken for lost memories.Worst of all is that Carly was there when her best friend Olivia was tak [...]

  3. Scary Mind Bender Holy Cow First, my reader my brain not my kindle has been faulty all year There is a stack of books on my kindle waiting for me, but every time I tried to sit down and read I just couldn t After visiting some old favorites I decided to give my stack another try This was at the top I wasn t sure what I expected, but I couldn t put this book down I started it yesterday afternoon and grudgingly put it away to sleep It was the first thing I thought of this morning, but I made mysel [...]

  4. Original post on readingadd I received this book for a honest review Thanks This book looked both interesting and creepy so I was kind of intrigued when I started reading it It was good, creepy sometimes, but I think that something was missing I liked the idea and the plot, but I couldn t sympathize with the main character and this for me is a huge thing Also, there were some parts when I felt confuse, because everything was moving so fast, now we are here and then is a flashback and then here a [...]

  5. Carly Lopez is the only survivor of a serial killer that murdered four teenage girls He was never caught, and she can t remember what he looks like Now he s back, and she s determined to find the killer Except she can t tell reality from dream sometimes Her post traumatic stress has left her questioning even herself Can she find the truth without ending up in an institution again or getting herself killed This YA thriller with a supernatural edge takes the reader on a surreal journey It s fascin [...]

  6.

  7. Awesome read I could not put it down It kept pulling me in for I wasn t expecting how things ended though.

  8. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.First I must compliment Elizabeth Arroyo on her cover art, it s absolutely brilliant Like the story I see one thing and then suddenly BAM my eyes open up to a whole new world We re introduced to Carly having a session with Dr Mason, he s trying to get her to remember the day her friend Olivia got abducted, but I think the events are so traumatic that she s buried them so deeply She survived but Olivia didn t.Carly has panic attacks [...]

  9. Read of my reviews at My Full Bookshelf Reviews2.5 starsI received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Darkness just slightly missed the mark for me My main problem with this book was the supernatural aspect of it Done right, it would have been awesome But it seemed to be just tacked on at the end, which is decidedly NOT awesome Darkness was an okay book, don t get me wrong, but I really think that it had the potential to be great Main problem Hunter First off, the way tha [...]

  10. I received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review.Carly survived an attack that leaves her best friend dead and she is unable to remember anything to help catch the killer Carly feels guilty about not doing enough to save her friend and the other victims and becomes obsessed with finding the killer Carly puts herself and those she loves at risk to catch the killer once and for all.I liked the idea of this story, it was intriguing and it involves mystery, suspense and the s [...]

  11. When I received a copy of Darkness I expected a thrilling ride, having previously read Elizabeth Arroyo s Second Sign series, however the difference here is that Darkness retains a sense of realism.In Darkness Elizabeth Arroyo captures the atmosphere and hopelessness in a town where a number of young girls have been kidnapped and murdered This pessimism resonates throughout the course of the story, particularly as the main character, Carly, is obsessed with the police investigation.Carly is pres [...]

  12. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest reviewDarkness is a YA psychological thriller full of mystery and suspense The first third of the book was intense, making it impossible to put down Unfortunately that didn t continue throughout I have to say that main character Carly really brought out my mothering instincts I couldn t relate with her on any level, but I sure felt for her while reading.Carly survived an attack that resulted in the death of her best friend Due to PTS [...]

  13. So I don t usually write reviews, but this book was gifted to me for a honest review so why not.Carly is a teenage girl who has suffered the loss of her best friend She s on a mission to find her friends killer Carly wasn t able to give the police any description of the person who took her best friend Olivia even though she was there when she was taken, her mind is a complete blur Her brother Christian, friend Hannah and love interest Hunter try to discourage her from investigating the murder be [...]

  14. I feel like I m on an unlucky streak with my reading right now, as this was another book that I could not get into and fit into the same mold of throwing too many questions at you and not enough answers High schooler Carly is thrown into the middle of a police investigation into a murder This is because she was the only living victim of the killer they suspect is behind the latest body This information didn t come from the book because the author throws the reader into the middle of things witho [...]

  15. First of all, a big thanks to Elizabeth Arroyo for gifting her book to me in exchange for an honest review I really enjoyed reading this one I thought that her portrayal of Carly, a teen suffering from PTSD, was well done I loved Carly because she was a realistic character I also really loved Hunter and Christian The relationships in the book felt real and helped me connect to the story, with the exception of the Mom, who was probably my least favorite character, including the bad guys She was a [...]

  16. I received this book via Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.This was a good story It kept you reading and guessing, trying to piece everything together I also liked Hunter,Carly,Christian and Hannah It was a good thriller,but I hated how people treated Carly If you seen your best friend abducted wouldn t you have PDST too That s what s wrong with Carly she has nightmares,see s things, has depression and is on a lot of meds I understand her why she is the way she is and others sh [...]

  17. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review I really enjoyed the mystery and story arc Some things were easy to figure out but not because it was spelt out, but because the author lead you through the clues The main character, Carly was easy to connect with Her brother Christian and best friend Hannah were great too The relationship between Carly and her mom was a little strange and I wish I knew why All that we know is that her mom has been married 3 times and [...]

  18. Although this may be just what some readers like, I did not I found the story confusing and the end unsatisfying Frankly I was glad when I had finally finished it Other than Carly, I thought the characters were poorly developed, especially the mother She was selfish and uncaring I was stunned when she slapped Carly and blamed her for Christians injuries The mom just never seemed to have any compassion for what Carly had experienced as a survivor of a kidnapping and murder of her best friend Carl [...]

  19. Thank you for gifting this book to me for this review.The main character, Carly, is the survivor of an attack which leaves her firend dead On top of this she has no real memory to catch the killer with Driven by guilt she become obsessed with the murderer, putting herself and those around her in danger The idea of the story is good, although the execution of it could have been done a little better The mystery is a little too easy to solve, but this didn t make the story less enjoyable My biggest [...]

  20. Full Review at What s Beyond Forks I love books that keep you guessing, and that s what this one did I pegged everyone as guilty at some time or another while reading, but I never predicted it completely My main issue was Carly I understand everyone deals with grief and trauma differently, but she lacked any sense of self preservation what so ever As a reader, that wore on me quite a bit after a while The story reminded me of a Steven King novel in ways, only minus all the extra fluff pages whic [...]

  21. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.I absolutely loved this book The story was original with a very interesting twist I don t want to give too much away because I really think you should just read the book for yourself but I did begin to guess the twist and Carly s part in it but it really wasn t long before the twist began to unfold and I have to be honest and say I was completely surprised by the background story of Hunter as that unfolded The book is well written, d [...]

  22. How do you like your thrillers Pedestrian Obvious Boring No Thank goodness, because if that is what you re looking for in a book, you simply won t get it with this one.Carly is different She escaped But she cant remember, and that is what is driving practically her entire existence As a character, she is well written I didn t particularly identify with Carly, but that really didn t affect my enjoyment of the story.The relationship with Hunter is tense and frustrating, but with a spark of attract [...]

  23. this book was better than i thought it was going to be carly was an awesome main character you could feel her craziness when it did show upwhich wasnt as often as other people made her believe i did not care for her mother one bit she treated carly almost like she was to blame for all of lifes problems and honestlyi didnt like her brother he appeared caring but in my own opinion i didnt feel it hunter.ahh hunter so perfect so caring so, i dont even know what else theres so much to say but i don [...]

  24. I was gifted this for an honest review This story is about Carly who survived a serial killer attack a year ago and now the killer has returned The first few chapters of this book move fairly quickly and then it gets confusing.There were times where I had to reread sections because I read them too quickly and didn t fully understand what was going on the first time The last few chapters jam in a lot of information that I think would have worked a little bit earlier in the story.I gave it a three [...]

  25. Wow This was a great book It was a twisting and turning ride that kept me on the edge of my seat Everyone at school doesn t really care for Carly Her best friend was murdered and she was there to witness it But she doesn t remember the killer She is unstable When the killer starts killing again, she beings to see it happening Carly wants to help find the killer before its too late She doesn t want to live with the guilt any At times, i felt confused about what was happening, but I think that thi [...]

  26. I read this book about 2 yrs ago I was almost through with the book when I started to rush to the end The book in the beginning was good but I found the ending to be lacking I mean being put to sleep and fighting your evil step father with your mind or something When I was through I just got rid of the book I give this book about 2.5 stars The synopsis of the book was good but I felt like it was flat towards the end It could have been better.

  27. Starts out goodAt first I was really into this book but the closer it got to the end and the complicated things seem to get, the I lost interest and was just ready for it to be over.
