Customer Review

on June 2, 2011
Dark, gorgeous, creepy and utterly compelling. I loved Leah Cypess's first book, MISTWOOD, but NIGHTSPELL is even better by several orders of magnitude, which is saying a LOT.

As someone who eats up both court intrigue and family novels like chocolate, this was pretty much my perfect book - nonstop (and VERY tense) escalating layers of intrigue, grounded by very real and heartbreaking emotional stakes, and peppered with great action scenes. I also absolutely loved the sibling dynamics in this book. There's a very slight hint of tragic romance in this book, but it's SO not the point as compared to the relationships among the siblings, which are all-important and so believable and strong.

This was my favorite high fantasy novel (for any age group) in ages. I can't wait to read whatever Leah Cypess writes next.
