Down Comes the Night by Allison Saft

Published by: Wednesday Books

Publication date: 02 March 2021


Summary

He saw the darkness in her magic. She saw the magic in his darkness.

Wren Southerland’s reckless use of magic has cost her everything: she’s been dismissed from the Queen’s Guard and separated from her best friend—the girl she loves. So when a letter arrives from a reclusive lord, asking Wren to come to his estate, Colwick Hall, to cure his servant from a mysterious illness, she seizes her chance to redeem herself.

The mansion is crumbling, icy winds haunt the caved-in halls, and her eccentric host forbids her from leaving her room after dark. Worse, Wren’s patient isn’t a servant at all but Hal Cavendish, the infamous Reaper of Vesria and her kingdom’s sworn enemy. Hal also came to Colwick Hall for redemption, but the secrets in the estate may lead to both of their deaths.

With sinister forces at work, Wren and Hal realize they’ll have to join together if they have any hope of saving their kingdoms. But as Wren circles closer to the nefarious truth behind Hal’s illness, they realize they have no escape from the monsters within the mansion. All they have is each other, and a startling desire that could be their downfall.

Allison Saft’s Down Comes the Night is a snow-drenched romantic fantasy that keeps you racing through the pages long into the night.


Why I can’t wait to read this

I added this to my TBR after Emily A. Duncan, the author of the Something Dark and Holy series, read it and loved it. It does give me some Wicked Saints vibes, in that it’s a fantasy horror which is something I need more of in my life.

This has a wonderfully gothic element which I just love. The crumbling mansion filled with monsters reminds me of something out of an Edgar Allan Poe story. I am hoping that narrative is atmospheric and has that eerie, unsettling feeling.

Also we have LGBTQ+ rep in this book which I’m excited about. I am loving that we are seeing more queer and POC representation in fantasy books.

Anyway, that’s it for me. Comment down below and let me know which books release date you cannot wait for.

Until next time, happy reading!

Recent Reads ||Jan 01 to Jan 10||

Hello!

I am bringing back my recent reads series which I totally abandoned last year. So fingers crossed I stick with it this year! I’m still trying to find the best way to review all the books I read since monthly wrap ups don’t work for me. In these posts I won’t be reviewing the books from the Romanceopoly and Finishing Series TBRs.

I will do my best not to include spoilers for the sequels but just be weary if you want to avoid finding out too much about the storyline.

Onto the ratings!

2020

Hi all!

Since it’s the end of the year, which still doesn’t feel real, I thought I’d look back on my reading year with a survey.

I’ve adapted this from questions for Cait at paper fury. It looked like fun and the pie chats looked so cute. You will be glad to know that I found a way to simplify the pie chart making process, and now have a spreadsheet which I fill in throughout the year and it automatically makes the charts yay!!

Also this is for the all books I’ve read in 2020 so not all where released this year.

2021 Reading Challenges & Goals

Hello,

Thank god it is finally the end of 2020! What a disaster of a year, which I am sure we are glad to see the back of. I didn’t do all the well at sticking to my goals — in particular not buying books — but yet it was a horrible and stressful year so I’m not being too hard on myself.

So, since it’s only fitting, I thought I’d share with you my goals and challenges for 2021.

I will start by saying that I was given an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review. These opinions are my own. Thank you so much to Jasmin for sending a copy my way!
