The success of Court of Twilight hinges on the characterisation of Ivy. Thankfully, she is convincing and extremely relatable. She is doggedly determined, and takes everyday and otherworldly challenges in her stride.
Everything about this felt new and imaginative—the concept of the novel as a whole, the kind of threats faced by the characters, the concept of the fantastical elements. I never knew where it was going and I'm desperate for the sequel so that my questions can be answered.
While the writer clearly has some skill melding words into sentences and creating some intriguing imaging, the way this book was written did not make for a very engaging novel. Were this book edited differently, splicing out all of the superfluous detail and infusing more action/adventure earlier on, it would have been much more effective.
Griffith blends personal experience & knowledge, myth & science fiction, and detailed imagery, to put the reader into the universe she has created. The intrigue, the vaguely threatening demeanor of Ivy's friends, the nuanced morality, all make this a grown ups' fantasy yarn.
I hope the next installment's on the way.
