Burning Night: where the ashes of the past awaken the future by Nikki Broadwell was a fast moving, wicketly original read that had me so hooked that I had this read in one sitting, and may have… may have caused me to be sort of late for work….
Not my first read by this author so I knew I was in for something different. Right out of the gate this book captured me and kept me on edge. There wasn’t any time to think, you could feel our MC’s desperation and the need to get as far away as she could. That level of emotional writing is a talent in it’s own, and one that makes this story shine.
There is so much I can say, pick apart and simply gush about. But this is also the type of story that if I give you one hint, one clue, one layer, then it will ruin the allure and may spoil the complex fast moving plot. No worries I’m not going to completely leave you in the dark. I will tell you that this story is sharp, richly detailed, intense, emotional and good. It’s so good that finding the right words to convince you, will take the whole dictionary just to convey what I’m feeling. Book hangover isn’t the word right now.
So please, please, take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you need this book in your life. So much so that you don’t even know how much. This read will capture you, it will hold you and it will make you question reality.
