A Brush of Darkness by Allison Pang

Six months ago, Abby Sinclair was struggling to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. Now, she has an enchanted iPod, a miniature unicorn living in her underwear drawer, and a magical marketplace to manage. But despite her growing knowledge of the OtherWorld, Abby isn’t at all prepared for Brystion, the dark, mysterious, and as sexy as sin incubus who shows up searching for his sister — and is convinced Abby has the key to the succubus’s whereabouts. Abby has enough problems without having this seductive shape-shifter literally invading her dreams to get information. But when her Faery boss and some of her friends vanish as well, Abby and Brystion must form an uneasy alliance. As Abby is sucked deeper and deeper into this perilous world of faeries, angels, and daemons, she realizes her life is in as much danger as her heart — and there’s no one she can trust to save her.

The cover of this intrigued me when I saw it ages ago and I know my friend Julie is a huge advocate of Allison Pang so I decided it would be the first purchase I made for my new shiny kindle.

I love the world Pang has created here and I really liked Abby's voice. The storyline itself was really very intriguing and original, at least to my eyes. All her characters are well written and stand out on their own, I really loved Phineas (read it to see why) and hope he's in the next book.

A great debut (I think(hope!)) from Pang with the potential to be a good fun series.
