Top Recommendation Review Book Of Night By Holly Black

Tuesday, May 03, 2022


 In Charlie Hall’s world, shadows can be altered, for entertainment and cosmetic preferences—but also to increase power and

influence. You can alter someone’s feelings—and memories—but manipulating shadows has a cost, with the potential to take hours or days from your life. Your shadow holds all the parts of you that you want to keep hidden—a second self, standing just to your left, walking behind you into lit rooms. And sometimes, it has a life of its own.

Charlie is a low-level con artist, working as a bartender while trying to distance herself from the powerful and dangerous underground world of shadow trading. She gets by doing odd jobs for her patrons and the naive new money in her town at the edge of the Berkshires. But when a terrible figure from her past returns, Charlie’s present life is thrown into chaos, and her future seems at best, unclear—and at worst, non-existent. Determined to survive, Charlie throws herself into a maelstrom of secrets and murder, setting her against a cast of doppelgangers, mercurial billionaires, shadow thieves, and her own sister—all desperate to control the magic of the shadows.

With sharp angles and prose, and a sinister bent, Holly Black is a master of shadow and story stitching. Remember while you read, light isn’t playing tricks in Book of Night, the people are.

REVIEW ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

"It takes bravery to be an adventurer... And what better adventure than the discovery of our true selves?"

This was such a great read, I enjoyed it a lot ! I was intrigued from the beginning and I loved the writing style plus the world so much! 

Charlie Hall was the main character and loved being in her mind, she is strong and smart! She's an ex-con who is  trying to leave that life behind her, but when a small job spirals into a bigger one she easily gets back in. 

The magic system was very unique. I have never read anything about shadow magic so I find it refreshing ! 

This was another masterpiece from the queen Holly Black!
