Review of Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber

I was obssessed.

It was as if he called to me, demanding I reach out and touch the brushstrokes of color swirled onto the canvas. It was the most exquisite portrait I'd ever seen—everything about Lord Denbury was unbelievable...utterly breathtaking and eerily lifelike.

There was a reason for that. Because despite what everyone said, Denbury never had committed suicide. He was alive. Trapped within his golden frame.

I've crossed over into his world within the painting, and I've seen what dreams haunt him. They haunt me too. He and I are inextricably linked—bound together to watch the darkness seeping through the gas-lit cobblestone strets of Manhattan. And unless I can free him soon, things will only get Darker Still.


Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber is a haunting tale that blended paranormal elements with some romance that makes for an brilliant gothic novel. The characters of Natalie and Lord Denbury were great - they complimented each other perfectly. Darker Still has tons of intrigue as well as lots of mystery, twists, and turns that will surely hook any reader who picks up this book.
