Description

As darkness falls after sunset, the corelings rise—demons who possess supernatural powers and burn with a consuming hatred of humanity.

For hundreds of years the demons have terrorized the night, slowly culling the human herd that shelters behind magical wards—symbols of power whose origins are lost in myth and whose protection is terrifyingly fragile. It was not always this way. Once, men and women battled the corelings on equal terms, but those days are gone. Night by night the demons grow stronger, while human numbers dwindle under their relentless assault. Now, with hope for the future fading, three young survivors of vicious demon attacks will dare the impossible, stepping beyond the crumbling safety of the wards to risk everything in a desperate quest to regain the secrets of the past. Together, they will stand against the night.

    Generally an Ok book, but nothing special.

    I don't suppose this review will help, as it was reviews here that recommended this book to me. The story is unoriginal and predictable, and the writing is as thin as the plot line. Don't waste your time.

    Hey, person scrolling through the reviews to see if this book is worth your time. Believe it or not, I was you not more than a few weeks ago, wondering if this book was worth the read. Guess what, it 100% is. Admittedly a little slow at the beginning, but after that the book flows. Towards the end I couldn't put it down. Signed, Future you

    This has become my favorite series of all time. Great scenes and I like how the characters have great depth and the three books stay true to the theme began in the first. I cannot recommend a series more than this.
