(Darkness Bound #1)
by Skye Callahan
Kaylyn Anderson's fascination with abandoned places and dark creatures kindled her work as a paranormal investigator. But when dreams begin to distort reality, she questions what is real and pulls away from everyone she trusts. The opportunity to investigate the Teague Hotel--a long-abandoned landmark that has always piqued her curiosity--provides a chance to redeem herself. Unraveling the hotel's secrets won't be easy, but Kaylyn soon finds herself the target of a dark entity that has been trapped in the building for decades. If Kaylyn stands any chance of defeating the spirit, she'll have to accept that her fears are real and convince fellow investigators that she hasn't lost her mind.

Skye Callahan was born and raised in Ohio and has seen enough unbelievable stuff to feed a lifetime of paranormal stories. When not writing or working at the dayjob, she hangs out with her ethnomusicologist husband and pet ferrets, reads, and takes long walks through the cemetery.
This book was awesome! What a great idea for a series. Fractured Legacy is about Kaylyn Anderson and Cole , her sister, who are paranormal investigators. With their new boss Jonah Troyer, we follow the new case investigating the weird activities going on at the Teague Hotel.
Kaylyn, the main character, was a very out spoken and very strong character. But yet she was a very private person- a loner of sorts. She had some problems and was having nightmares that she didn’t know where they were coming from. Having recently broken up with her boyfriend she assumed that was the reason.
At first I didn’t like their new boss, Jonah, but then he became one of my favorite characters. He was very protective of Kaylyn and when things were going bad even though she didn’t want to trust him or like him he became her main source of strength.
I really wanted to see Kaylyn and Jonah get together, a little romance to go with the supernatural. But they became more like best friends after everything they went through. Kaylyn needed a friend but I guess not a boyfriend...yet!
This is the first in the Darkness Bound series. For a novella, it was full of paranormal/supernatural scenes. Skye did an awesome job of getting me hooked from the beginning and I just kept turning the pages. If you want a short horror story grab a copy you will love it. I’m anxious to see which direction Skye takes Jonah and Kaylyn’s relationship. Also, what Kaylyn does now that she knows more about her past. There are lots of questions and I can’t wait for the next book to answer them. Hurry Skye!! :)
