5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for Volume 2... March 1, 2015
Format:Paperback
In part a roman-a-clef that deals with social issues, Ame is a
protagonist with strange abilities who finds herself among a
group of human-like creatures who live among the population
of Oakland, California. There are some wonderfully poetic 
passages that discuss economics and the environment,
others that contend with the storyline. An oft-cited failing of
literary fiction is that "not a lot happens". With Ame's preternatural
background and the world-building going on, the author has
done well to pack so much into the first novel of a series.
It's an urban fantasy where you're as likely to find an ogre
beneath a toll bridge as you are a toll booth operator on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic start of a new series March 3, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This well-written novella is a promising start in a series. Mills
blends reality with an extra-wordly theme. Ame gradually learns
that she is in this world but not of it, and amidst the dystopia of 
contemporary Oakland, California, finds that there are others like
her. Slowly she learns how to navigate through the setting which
is far different form what she is used to in the far-off Green Mountains.
There are lyrical passages in here, and a gripping story. The
writing is the best Mills has ever done, and this reviewer cannot 
wait to read more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to Book 2. March 15, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A refreshing and unique style of writing. The story draws you into a 
dark place to acknowledge a world we all know exists, yet often turn
a blind eye to. The protagonist grows and becomes enlightened with
each turn of the page. This endears you to her as she strives to be
accepted into society. A delightful shift takes place two thirds of the
way through and a light can be seen peeking out between the blinds. 
I look forward to following Ame on her journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entrancing March 12, 2015

A compelling read. The descriptive writing is tangible. Daughter of
 Darkness is an imaginative yet eerily nonfictional work, and author 
Katya Mills does not disappoint in her new novella. Her ability to transport
the reader to the dark underbelly of society is captivating.
