Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Action-packed and emotionally powerful like big- and small-screen hits such as The Sixth Sense and Supernatural, The Dark In-Between by Elizabeth Hrib is sure to stay with you long after the lights go out.

Something lurks in the shadows between life and death.

A terrible accident brings sixteen-year-old Casey Everett’s life to a halt—literally. Pulled from the water, Casey is rushed to the hospital and miraculously revived. But her sudden return to the living is shadowed by the drowning of her best friend, Liddy.

Overcome with grief, Casey returns home for the summer only to find the memories of the accident won’t let her go. Shadow-drenched nightmares. Whispers in the back of her mind. Her friend’s screams. Casey thinks she’s losing it… until she watches a boy fall from the sky.
Red—an angel fallen to earth to regain his wings—takes her to Limbo, a place that exists somewhere between the living and the dead. Now, in order to save her best friend, Casey must learn to walk these mysterious and dangerous paths or else risk losing Liddy’s trapped soul to something worse than death.

My Review
The Dark In-Between is a paranormal YA novel about life, loss, and Limbo. 
Casey and Liddy are best friends, but then a terrible accident ends both their lives. Casey comes back, but Liddy is gone for good. Or so everyone thinks. When Casey starts hearing Liddy whispering to her, she knows she has to figure out what's going on. Enter Red, a fallen angel. With his help, and the help of her other friend Evan, Casey must face off against the darkness if she wants to save Liddy before it's too late.
I really liked this book. I'm a sucker for stories about fallen angels, demons, Purgatory, etc., so this was right up my alley. I definitely wasn't disappointed.
I really liked all of the characters. They were well-written and fleshed out. I was a little surprised, though, that Evan took so easily to Red. Most characters tend not to believe right away, so the fact that he just went along with it did surprise me. But those two have a little bromance at the end, which was fun.
The plot is paced nicely, and the book is a quick, easy read. The world building was done well, and there are even some emotional moments within the pages.
Fans of YA paranormal, and fans of books about angels, will enjoy reading The Dark In-Between.
4 stars!
