Review of Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian – EL James

Posted: August 14, 2018 in erotica, Review

E L James revisits the world of Fifty Shades with a deeper and darker take on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the globe.

Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms.

But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana’s scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself. Can Christian’s confidant and therapist, Dr. Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past?

And if Christian does win Ana back, can a man so dark and damaged ever hope to keep her?

Another amazing book by EL James.

Having read the original trilogy (from Anastasia perspective ), I found this book interesting. Hearing the story from Christian’s point of view has provided more in-depth understanding of the history, emotions and greater perspectives of the characters’, especially Christian’s.

The book follows the same time frames as the original trilogy. I look forward to the next instalment.

I would recommend this book. Especially to Fifty Shades of Grey fans.
