Even though P+P is my ultimate favorite book, I've always loved Persuasion and I don't think it gets the accolades it should. For Darkness Shows the Stars is amazing. I just don't have words to do it justice...The world that was created and the characters are just phenomenal. There are letters between young Elliot and Kai before almost every chapter. Through them, we get to see their past relationship grow while watching the present relationship struggle. I was holding my breath for The Letter [which if you've read Persuasion, you know EXACTLY what letter I'm talking about] and Diana delivered it in a manner that was hers and Jane's together. And absolute perfection in 2 pages of text. I can't wait to see what the next book will bring. But I know I'll be reading it right away, not procrastinating like it did with this one.
