Where I Got It: My shelf (Netgalley)

Comes the Dark exposes a corrupt politician's shadowy world of human depravity. In possession of information which could blow that shadowy world apart, 18-year-old Kyle escapes a life of abuse and goes on the run. One step ahead of his pursuers, he flees the harsh realities of Glasgow's homeless underworld, to the apparent safety of a remote Scottish island. There perhaps he can begin to recover from his past, and find hope, friendship, and a future. But freedom has a price...

A random one on Netgalley. I was intrigued from the moment I seen the cover. 

The story follows Kyle who escapes a life of abuse and goes on the run. Is he able to escape the realities of Glasgow's homeless underworld? Will he forget his dark past? Freedom always has a price though. 

OoooOOOOooo poor Kyle. He is so young and no one should go through the terrible things he had to go through. So sad. What makes it sad is that this goes on for real and many people do not get a chance to escape and try to have a normal life. So tragic. 

This was pretty dark. Sometimes it was even a wee dark for me. I just wanted to cry. These kids are so young. I felt so horrible! I wanted all of them to escape and live an amazing life. SOBS! This had a lot of feels and again...really dark especially at the beginning. There was a point I did have to walk away from reading for a little bit. It was just so sad. 

I really did enjoy this story and I wanted to know what was going to happen. This is a must-read for those that like fiction stories. We see a glimpse of the dark side of the world, but there is so much hope for Kyle and the others. I loved the ending. Made some of the darkness worth it. But again...freedom isn't free. 

All-in-all, this was a good read even with the darker bits of the story. It shows us the dark side of the world, but it reminds us there is hope. I highly recommend it, but be will feel feelings like I did. I'll stamp this with 4 stars.

I don't read books like this often, but I do like to pick them up now and then to remind me not to take my good life for granted.
Glad it was written well and kept you wanting more.

Sophia, same. I don't really go after sad, sad books like this (normally my sad ones are like tragic love stories), but I do like read them once in a while.

B, I have a hard time with certain dark stories.
