Our thoughts:

If you are looking for something different in the world of paranormal, then you have found it. Swept into the Darkness is great read that takes Angels of dark and light and mixes them with Greek Mythology and you've got one awesome story!

Our main character is Sydney London. She's a beautiful young woman who has suffered enough to last her lifetimes. Just when she thinks things are starting to look up, accidents and tragedies strike once again and she is on a mission that will take her beyond her wildest dreams. She discovers that she is a Nephilim, half Angel and human. She finds out who and what her mother actually is. The dark angels want Sydney to join them on their counsel but her Guardian and childhood friend Angelo will do anything to protect her from them.

First and foremost, I really enjoyed reading this story. LaTaeya has written a great beginning to a promising series. Her creativity to blend angels and gods, Realm jumping and other paranormalness made this story full of emotion and excitement. The fact that Greek Mythology was incorporated was an added bonus for me. I am a HUGE fan of the Gods of Olympus.

I really do recommend this book to those looking for something out of the ordinary for 

This book has so much potential. The story line and plot are very good. They seem to mix every culture, every genre and add a little of religious surrealism. The author consistently had you wondering and questioning why and what is next. The verbiage was a bit limited with the overuse of the word “glaring” however I feel the author shows promise as she goes further. The heroine is a strong character and develops quickly in her power yet never losing her sense of self. I feel that the writer should have made this book longer as everything seemed rushed.
I give this book 3 ½ stars.
