Review: The Deepest Night

The Deepest Night
The Deepest Night by Shana Abe

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Lora Jones is at the end of her first year at Iverson. She is unsure where she will be going during the summer months and if she will be allowed to return in the fall. When Armand Louis offers to turn his father’s estate into a convalescence home and invites Lora to be a nurse, her destiny continues to follow the path of the stars. See, Lora is a dr├íkon. Although she is still adjusting to what being a person with magical abilities means, she understands that there are powers in play beyond the human race. Her feelings for Armand are pushed to new limits when they are tasked with crossing enemy lines to enter war torn Germany to rescue his brother.

The Deepest Night picks up shortly after The Sweetest Dark ends plunging further into this historical time period. Shana Abe beautifully composes a book with a variety of points of view that flow easily from section to section. The romantic feelings between Lora and Mandy are constantly tearing at the characters and the reader will find themselves either cringing in anticipation or hoping for more to come. I found myself loving the characters I should love and despising the characters I should despise as the author designed. Who doesn't like to see the underdog be accepted for who she is and the mean girls to be shunned and put in their place. I loved the book and look forward to reading another book in the series and recommend the series to readers of historical fiction and romances. Although it could be deemed a fantasy novel, I feel the other two genres are a stronger influence.
