Blog Tour & Giveaway: Beware the Night by Jessika Fleck

Beware the Night

Beware the Night is a great introduction to YA & is full of all the YA tropes that we love; the characters were fun & the plot was engaging. I loved the world-building though & was so curious to learn more about the different communities involved.

In Veda’s world people are separated by money, & by political rule; the Sun fiercely rule over the poor Basso & the rich Dogio, whilst the Night work to reveal the truths about the government that rule. Veda is more involved with the silent battles between each community than she realises, & when the person she loves most in the world is taken from her, she finds herself aligning with people she never thought she’d trust.

My favourite thing about Beware the Night was the world-building, including the way the politics works… the political divides are really interesting, & how could I resist a book where the Sun is against the Night? This was a world I wanted to explore, outside of the characters & plot, & I would definitely consider picking up small novellas!

I also appreciated the characters; Veda was a lot of fun & was your classic YA heroine – fierce, headstrong & weak to the will of her heart. Veda’s grandfather was my hero of the book though; I loved how purely he loved his granddaughter & how much he was willing to do to keep her happy & safe. I wish I had a granddad like him. Dorian is another prominent character in the book, although he was one that I didn’t really click with – he’s one of those characters that you can’t quite work out, & that’s probably going to turn out to be a turncoat. Nico, on the other-hand, was a solid favourite of mine & I felt so much sympathy for his situation.

I enjoyed Beware the Night, but felt it was pretty average; if you’re into YA tropes then you will love this book, but for me it was a little unoriginal & the basic plot of the story has been overdone. Fleck writes well though, & I’d definitely pick up something by her again in the future.
