the night and its moon review

the night and its moon has an intriguing sounding premise and a beautiful cover. it sounds like the perfect book for me, however i found it lacking in some aspects that really hindered my reading experience.

the main concept for this book isn’t anything new – light versus dark, evil versus, etc. it’s something we see all the time in fiction. while it’s the same old story, just with new packaging, i still really enjoyed the way the author interpreted it.

the start of the book is fairly slow, but it was interesting. there was a lot to learn, so i enjoyed the slower pacing. the ending is the opposite – it’s super fast and intense. everything goes down all at once and it’s pretty awesome. unfortunately, the 70% in between was slow, boring and tedious.

the night and its moon starts out following nox and amaris as children. i found them likeable and interesting. i loved their friendship. unfortunately, as they grew older, i started to dislike them a bit. they were still interesting, but a duller version of themselves.

and lastly, the way it’s written. i don’t really know how to say this without sounding rude, but the sentences were poorly written and riddled with grammatical errors. i felt the book could’ve benefitted from another few rounds of editing.

overall, the night and its moon had an interesting start and action packed ending, but the middle dragged in a way that made me want to dnf multiple times. the ending was intense and i feel the need to know what’s going to happen next, but i’m not sure if i can be bothered putting myself through another one of these books.

    I’m sorry you didn’t like this one as much. The premise does sound interesting, but a ton of grammatical errors would make me hate it too.
