    Description

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Holly Black makes her stunning adult debut with Book of Night, a modern dark fantasy of shadowy thieves and secret societies in the vein of Ninth House and The Night Circus

    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, nonexistent. 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 listen, light isn’t playing tricks in Book of Night, the people are.

    Praise for Holly Black:

    “Black is a master at world-building.” (The New York Times Book Review)

    “No one writes like Holly Black.” (John Green, number-one New York Times best-selling author)

    Just what I was expecting, but maybe not for all

    All of Black’s books have this gritty darkness to them, drawing out the shadows of her characters’ thoughts. I feel like she explored that more in this story. Like all of her main characters, Charlie is an underdog with a low opinion of herself brought on by a past built full of people that were too flawed (or maybe too human) to teach her differently. It takes a lot to like Charlie, but in the end we all have enough darkness to relate. The love interest is a slow burn. It takes a while for Vince to open up and become a solid character, which Black executed well. I didn’t have much interest in him in the beginning, but he became a crucial part of the story as he became more solid (the irony is not lost on me).
    There is a dynamic with Posey that could have gone either direction. Sibling rivalry and family is usually a strong theme in Black’s stories, and she uses it well here. In the end, you can’t help but to root for the underdog even if you aren’t a big Charlie fan. To those expecting Black’s YA coming of age reg, this is an adult book. These characters aren’t discovering their self worth in a new grown up world trying to find meaning. They are ALL flawed, already uncompromisingly jaded and understand the game and know how screwed up society is. They’re just finding ways to play the game by their own rules. No shine of idealistic youth, no gleaming optimistic outcomes, and no need to cherry coat anything to make a character likable.
    I enjoyed this immensely, but I can understand it not being everyone’s cup of tea. I knew it would end in a cliffhanger, but it still got me. I can’t wait for the next book!

    It is Different… But a Good Different!

    I have been a huge fan of Holly Black since I was probably around 5-6 when I read Spiderwick. I love pretty much everything she ever writes, so I was, of course, ecstatic when I saw that she was coming out with her first novel geared more toward adults (which is, unfortunately, what I am). While it is different than what I know and love from her (spoiler: there are no fairies), the writing style, the character development, and the world building is the same Holly we know and love. Readers (or listeners) who are expecting a romance the likes of what we saw in the Folk of the Air series only more… adult(?) will probably be disappointed in this books romantic escapades, but the main character has a similar feel to Jude, only more grown up and grittier. The world Holly builds is familiar and foreign all at once and makes you want to take a look at your own shadow a little more closely. All in all, I loved it and devoured it in two days. Definitely not disappointed, and I will definitely be reading through it again soon!

    Not what I expected

    I couldn’t get into it- I tried! I enjoyed The Cruel Prince series. But this was… boring. Just boring.

    your shadow is magical like (Peter Pan's is)

    A girl learned to steal/con at a young age has many secrets but her boyfriend has more, and isn't all quite there. Salt a rich man will do anything to see how far he can go!
    I love this book not exactly a murder mystery, but lots of twists and turns.
    spoiler;**It also leaves it open for another book. I hope she can get (steal) reds heart.

    well worth the listen

    Didn't know what to expect but really enjoyed this book. The premise is novel (drawing a bit from Peter Pan and his interaction with his shadow) in it's exploration of what would happen if we could literally manipulate our shadows (i.e., darkness, negative emotions, unattractive features) and change how we are perceived. Put it in a modern setting with murder and intrigue and interesting characters, this book did not disappoint. It was also well paced and excellently narrated.

    If you're looking for a story to immerse yourself in with complex characters who are forced to face themselves, pick this up!!
