Burning Night: Where the Ashes of the Past Awaken the Future by Nikki Broadwell
4 out of 5 stars
First, What a beautiful cover! This contemporary novel was both profound and heart breaking. Collie is running from an abusive relationship. It was interesting watching her grow into her power and into her womanhood throughout this book. I loved the development that this book brought to her character. She is a very complex character, yet at her core, she is simple, heartfelt and passionate. Collie is making her way to a festival called Burning Night, which she believes is an answer to all of her prayers.
This book is emotionally charged. I had, at times, a very difficult time getting through portions of the book without wanting to break down and cry. Collie is strong. So very, very strong. Ms Broadwell has written an amazing character with vivid details. I HIGHLY recommend this book, but want to let you know that this will seriously pull at your heart strings.
