Shannon Kelly’s life has been anything but typical.
Her life has been altered viciously at the hands of others twice.
However horrible they have been, it’s these changes that have given her a family and career…now possibly love.
The last thirteen years she has been supported and loved by her protector, her entertainer, and her comforter, but never a lover.
When Dylan Kellerman enters Shannon’s life he changes its course in more ways than one.
He gives her hope and promise of a future she was convinced wasn’t attainable.
Just as she begins to believe she has finally turned her life into something she can build a future on…blackness takes over.
You can purchase Blackness Takes Over at the following Retailers:
Blackness Takes Over is Norma Jeanne’s debut novel. What began as an homage to the home town of a homesick Midwestern girl, unfolded a story of love, danger, humor, and trust. She’s currently working on her untitled sophomore effort. We can’t wait to see what thrilling saga she leads us through next!
Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Norma Jeanne recently found herself relocating to the United Kingdom. Now living in Belfast, she took hold of the opportunity to kick the 9-5 job for a chance to become an author. The best part: working from her home office, she gets to spend more time with her cast of crazy characters (written and real).
In her free time Norma Jeanne is a voracious reader and consumes books as readily as meals. She is a people watcher by nature and uses her experiences in life, observed or otherwise, to build the worlds and characters that thrive in her books. A believer in the strength of the human spirit, Norma Jeanne writes the stories of people that persevere when all appears to be lost.
“Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” –Dylan Thomas
My Review

Norma Jeanne Karlsson...remember this author and her debut book, Blackness Takes Over because it will be one you will not want to forget. 

Shannon has dealt with a tremendous heart ache in her life.  Being raised by her Uncle, he taught her to be strong and to be able to protect herself.  He gave her the love she needed the only way he knew how.

After Shannon decided to go on her own to college, she met a group of guys that will later, become a huge part of her life....the extended family she never had.  Kavy, Cally and Sully each become an important part of Shannon's life, each one giving her different parts of themselves.  However, they all have one thing in common, to protect Shannon always.

Sometimes I find it difficult to write a review without giving away too may spoilers.  With a story like this, I find that less information given is best, because this story is so amazing, its best to dive in unprepared to get the full enjoyment from the story.

I am infatuated with the characters in Darkness Takes Over.  Each character has a unique personality that connects with the other characters, and reader as well.  Shannon is strong, spunky, and fun to get to know.  She doesn't put up with anyone's crap.  Kavy, Cally, and Sully, well, lets say it was entertaining to get to know them because all three are hot, and you just fall for the way they are constantly keeping their eye on Shannon.

The storyline...AMAZING!!  I had no idea what to expect, and was thrilled that it kept me on my toes to the very end.  There was never a dull moment, with the unexpected twists that kept you guessing to the situations that gets the guys all worked up.  Speaking of the end, well, lets just say that it was a cliff hanger of all cliff know, the kind that makes you say out loud, "I can't believe she (meaning the author) did this to me!!",  however, leaves you excited in anticipation for the next story to come out. (which is in April)

Darkness Takes Over is packed with so many amazing stories all rolled into one.  There's how the four got together, Shannon has a love interest, Shannon's case that is close to her heart, the BIG secret...WOW, its just amazing.  There is serious subject matter and very humorous conversations.  It's the full package.

I can't wait for the next installment.  I'm not ready for it to all!
