This book was an “ok” read.  It was not what I had expected, having read the description, I felt this was going to be more similar to X-files but I just didn’t get that vibe.  None the less, it was an interesting read, kept me intrigued and I was glad that I was offered the opportunity to read it.  

I hadn’t read the first installment, coming into the sequel in this one was a tad tough, but it wasn’t a show stopper. 

Fast paced, decent characters and fairly well rounded storyline.

When I saw the NetGalley description for The Dark Above I was so intrigued I read the first book, The Darkest Time of Night and couldn’t put it down. I was anxious to read the Dark Above and it didn’t disappoint. 
William is now 22 and in hiding after discovering he is the conduit for all the human weapons the aliens have created. Slowly realizing the power he holds, and how to best use it, he comes in contact with the other 4 human weapons and an eccentric billionaire who believes in him. Meeting special members of the powerful Corcillium organization that his grandmother works for, he is constantly evading capture by the government SSA group, who want nothing more than to secretly lock himself and the other alien humans up forever. In the meanwhile his grandmothers, Lynn and Roxi are working behind the scenes to bring the government plans to light. 
Up until the last few pages I thought there had to be a third book, and the story could not be completed, but the plot is tied up beautifully, and the epilogue has a kicker, which keeps the door open for a welcomed third edition.

I appreciate having had an opportunity to read and review this book. The appeal of this particular book was not evident to me, and if I cannot file a generally positive review I prefer simply to advise the publisher to that effect and file no review at all.
