Amber Randall comes to Jessica Jones with a problem involving her twins and their unusual behavior since coming home from a visit with their father in the UK. Jessica takes the case even though she is facing a crisis of her own; she may be pregnant with Luke Cage's baby. Jessica employs Malcolm to become friends with the twins, while she takes a trip to the UK to meet their father and trace their movements while they were there. What she finds leads her to the kind of supernatural connection she thought she had once upon a time, already escaped.

Breaking the Dark is a unique story that does deliver a strong message about what constitutes perfection and the lengths some people will go to attain it. Some supernatural elements are woven into the story, which includes appearances by a few other Marvel characters. Those who are not familiar with the backstories of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will be at somewhat of a loss when their "super powers" become part of the narrative. Also, the protagonists do not have the gritty feel of the authentic characters developed in the Marvel Comics world. The basic plot of the story is interesting but the alternating chapters in the past and present are a distraction in the storytelling. However, the two timelines do come together by the end offering a satisfying conclusion. Overall Breaking the Dark represents a missed opportunity to more deeply explore the essence of what makes these Marvel characters so entertaining.

I read this as a monthly book club read.

I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would with all the hype about this book.

It was definitely a slow burn. That ended pretty much how I thought it would. I’m so sorry, I wanted to love this book as much as my friends.

It was unbelievable how much they put up with this woman and I couldn’t get over how it didn’t really feel real to me. That anyone would put up with it is ridiculous. It made me really dislike them all.

I also didn’t like the flash to the Netflix rendition of the podcast. It didn’t add that much to the book and was too wordy and distracting in the description of the scenes for the tv taped version.

This is the first book by Lisa Jewell I have tried and I have two more. I hope they move along faster and have a better ring of believability.

I was disappointed in the ending. The rest of the book held my attention.
