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!

Anticipated Releases 2020

Hello,

This is the time of year for either reflection or looking ahead to the new year. And this post will be one of the looking ahead ones. Lets have a look at my most anticipated released for 2020

This won’t be a definitive list of all the releases I’m interested in. I do have a more definitive list and add to it throughout the year. This list lives under the Anticipated Reads tab.

Warning my thoughts on these books and why I’m excited will some time be incoherent ramblings of excitement. I’ll also include the currently available synopsis of each of these books.

Each photo is linked to the corresponding goodreads pages. So if you like the sound of it, you can add it to your goodreads TBR

They are listed in release order. Also these may be subject to change
