This week I am reviewing Beware the night by Jessika Fleck! I got this ARC from an insta friend in a giveaway and I am so excited to share what I thought of the book!
When her world divides, pitting light against dark, Veda must join a dangerous revolution to save her grandfather and fight against injustice…even if it costs her the boy she loves.
On the island of Bellona, life is peaceful–as long as the citizens dutifully worship the Sun, which protects them from all harm. Seventeen-year-old Veda knows that keeping the Sun happy will protect her and her grandfather from the Night, the dangerous people who snatch innocent citizens from their beds under the cover of darkness, never to be seen again. As long as Veda follows the rules, she will be safe.
But when Veda’s grandfather is offered up as the next sacrificial offering to keep the Sun’s favor, she starts to see that the safety she’s been promised comes at a dangerous price. Maybe there is more to fear above than there is below.
With a mysterious young man, Dorian, at her side, Veda has to figure out if the scary bedtime stories she grew up hearing are real–or dangerous lies.
I really loved the mythology and storytelling of this book! Fleck’s writing style flowed really smoothly and I found myself unable to look away from the story! Veda’s character was really wonderful, I love how she didn’t just accept things because she was being told them, she was curious and a great heroine. The plot twists and slow burn romance just rounded out the story and made it a great read!
I give this book
