After being attacked, Opel wakes up with no memory of who she is or what has happened.
Opel was a tracker, not human. No feelings, no nothing. Only death and destruction are what trackers see. Or so they thought. The more Opel hung around Aecker, the more she changed. She was slowly turning human. She even got sick after seeing blood!!! Out of the whole story, she showed the most growth and change. Aecker became everything to her. Even though she was going soft, she still new how to kick some major butt!!! It was also very different for a tracker to completely shut down and come back. She is different somehow. I can't wait to learn all about the details of what makes her unique and special. And the important question why? Why her. What has she hidden that they all want? Can't wait to find out!!!
Aecker is a sweetheart yet he is a protector. The way he protects Opel is so sweet. But he has the moves of a Tracker. So that leaves me wondering if he has been encoded without himself knowing. He cares so deeply and that is what I love about him. He has suffered through so much and became the amazing man he is because of it. He cares for the people of Cupola. After his brother has been captured he goes on a rescue mission alone leaving Opel with Noah. He is then captured because he doesn't want to see the people hurt because of him.
Noah is a character that I didn't like at the beginning, but he is slowly growing on me. He is changing being around Opel and Aecker. I LOVED the banter between Opel and Noah while they were together. It was hilarious!!!
Even though I enjoyed the story, I did have a few problems with it. The plot moved so fast that I had trouble picturing what was going on. I just couldn't see it. I had to go back and reread at times. Another issue I had was, I felt as if chunks of the story were missing. For example, one paragraph talked about how Opel couldn't remember. Then the next paragraph she remembered. I was like "when did that happen?" I just felt as if chunks of the story was missing. That happened on more than one occasion throughout the story. I also wish I connected with the characters a little more. Other than that, it was a fantastic read.
Dead of Night was a fun-fast paced story that hooked me from the very beginning. It does leave off with a little cliffhanger so I have to wait until the next book to see what happens next. Hopefully I don't have to wait too long Carlyle!!!! There were so huge twists with this story especially at the ending. Can't believe who the guard really is!!!! Can't wait to see what happens with that!!! I also want to know the secrets that Opel has hidden. That is what is really liking me. I am having one of those need to know moments!!! This story is a must read and I highly recommend it!!!
That being said, there were still a lot of great things about this book. The dialogue felt natural, and the author obviously has a knack for word choice. The description and events felt well paced, too. I liked that this didn't feel like your typical dystopian plot.
Even though the author had a great voice, I found the story itself confusing. I get that this is part of a series, but by the end, I only had more questions.
I bounced between 2.5 and 3 stars for this book but ultimately went with the lower rating because I needed more from this book. There were a lot of good ideas behind it but they could have been executed better. I kept thinking that I had accidentally skipped the first book and was somehow reading the sequel. I actually double and triple checked that this was the first book in the series. The author immediately throws the reader into the thick of things which would be fine if there was more explanations about things. The world building was just okay for me. I wanted to be able to understand who the warring parties were and more about the technology of the time. The environment itself is never explained either and seemed as if it should have been discarded and added to a different story. There were some kind of dust storms and acid rain but the reader is never told why those things were taking place.
There is never any kind of background given to any of the characters which is probably why I had no idea why they were doing the things that they were doing. All I know about Aecker is that his parents are dead and that the people around him see him as a nerd who is not as manly as the other men.
