Poignant and incredibly powerful,
Ness not only entertains but leaves
us deep in thought.
Fourteen-year-old Lilly Grey exists in two worlds at the same time. She just doesn't know it. As the only albino in a million mile radius, Lilly is used to being different. Pink eyes and white hair aren't exactly the best camouflage in the harrowing jungles formally known as high school. And yeah, she's used to being an outcast and seeing the world in a slightly different way, but she never guessed how literally "different" applied to her. Not until a clan of shape-shifting dragons tell her she's not just albino. She's a unicorn and the only mortal alive who can live on both Earth and its antithesis, a land that exists in the exact same spot as Earth, just in a different phase. But it's not all sunshine and rainbows for this unicorn. As the only one who can live in both phases, she's also the only one who can bring Morcah--and all its inhabitants--to Earth. And creatures who've been trapped on Earth since the Dark Ages are willing to do worse things than kill to make that happen.
Deliciously imaginative, bestselling author Emily White has taken the shapeshifting phenomenon to an altogether different dimension in her new novel, Almost Night. White has a natural tendency towards descriptive prose which she employs to create wonderfully vibrant and compelling scenes. She doesn’t allow them to become cumbersome, by keeping her word count tight, allowing just enough atmosphere to permeate her pages and temper the imagination, with this economy extended to the cast of characters that surround her young shapeshifter Lilly Grey. They are all equally well drawn with distinctive voices and personalities, with each deserving of their place in White’s tale. Nat and Ian are particularly memorable, though it’s Lilly who ultimately steals the show with White weaving decidedly dark overtures into her story. Overtures that are sure to tug at the proverbial heart strings and make Lilly a character readers will readily find themselves rooting for.
Undoubtedly the start of an exciting new series, the magic White has worked is sure to create much interest in the Tales Of Morcah series. Definitely deserving of your interest, Almost Night is highly recommended.
