A little sin can be deadly…

Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course…

When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.

Seven deadly ones, in fact.

They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they’re recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing…

There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.



"A freshly unique paranormal full of romance and adventure, you may want to keep one of he deadly sins for yourself" - NYTimes Bestelling author Jennifer L Armentrout

"No wimpy heroines need apply! Accardo's Jessie Darker puts some serious kick in kick butt, taking on all sorts of paranormal baddies with style, even while coping with a hunky new dude in her life. This rocking tale of good vs. evil is packed with twists and turns. A terrific start to a new series." - Jana Oliver, award winning author of the Demon Trapper's daughter

"A fabulous start to a new series for discerning readers who are looking for a different YA paranormal. Engaging characters, an interesting premise and lots of action complement an exciting plot. And, as for the hero, a deadly sin never looked better. If you're a fan of Accardo's Denazen series, grab this one, too." - Susannah Balch, RT reviews

Darker Days is a laugh-out-loud, thrilling start to a new series, gifting us with a protagonist whose sarcasm charms and whose acknowledgement of her own flaws has us falling more and more in love with her with each page. In addition to a standout young heroine, we are also treated to a well-execute ...more

When this was released two years ago it was marketed as the supernatural Veronica Mars.
After finishing it, I will happily agree to that comparing.
The fun parent-kid realationship is there, between the mom and daughter here just as great banter.
The private eye element is strong, there is both small ...more

Jessie so hates having to do penance. It wasn't her fault that her classmates paid her to take some incriminating pictures of the school principal with his much younger girlfriend. Was it her fault he was cheating? Nevertheless, ...more

Darker Days by Jus Accardo was such an amazing book! After reading the synopsis, I knew the story would be right up my alley, yet the tale and, in particular, the characters, were more intriguing and laugh-inducing than I had previously hoped. The Darker Agency and family will certainly give the rea ...more

*Thanks so much to Entangled Teen for the review copy!*

Jus Accardo has blown me away once again; apparently she can do no wrong for me when it comes to her books!! I devoured this book in one setting and my only regret was that the next book wouldn’t be in my hands for a while!

Jus Accardo is one of my favorite authors as she always creates outstanding and very unique characters. Her “Toxic” series managed to completely blow me away, so I was eager to read about her new series featuring a girl who runs a “demon” agency with her mom! Brin ...more

Darker Days by Jus Accardo was a light, entertaining read featuring a feisty heroine and a great mother-daughter relationship. I do think however that I was in just the right mood for this novel as I wasn’t as bothered by certain things that typically annoy me (e.g. insta-love).

The main character, J ...more

Darker Days wasn't exactly wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be creepier and not as predictable. However, it's still very good.

Jessie's voice sounds like a typical teenager. It doesn't seem like Just Accardo is trying, but ...more

Seven Deadly sins. One sexy deadly sin. Yeah, just to get you started. I loved this book! The cover was gorgeous, the story amazing, the characters appealing.

Jus Accardo has proven to me that I should pay attention to her books. She writes exciting, no ordinary stories with strong, kickass, cool heroes (and heroines) and with many twists. And in case of Darker Days, we got the same.

Jessie (the protagonist) almost the same as Dez in Denazen series. A s ...more

Author, Jus Accardo, has done it again with this brand new series that I was totally dying to read! And let me tell you, Darker Days did not disappoint! Strong female lead, swoon worthy boyfriend material, and a storyline that is so gripping that you’ll have a difficult time putting it down.

4.5 stars
Darker Days is one of those books that pretty much has it all. Originality. Amazing pacing. GREAT characters. An awesome storyline. Excellent weaving of threads like an expert knotter (what?).
It is also what I suspect to be another GREAT first book in an exciting new series.
Ms Accardo, if ...more
