Down Comes the Night: A Novel

We rated this book:


Disgraced and willing to do anything to get reinstated in the Queen’s Guard Wren takes a dangerous and treasonous trip to a neighboring nation to heal a servant of a noble. When she gets there, she finds the servant isn’t a servant but Hal Cavendish, a feared assassin. And the enemy. With nothing left to lose, Wren chooses to stay. But there’s more to the illness than she ever could have imagined, and she and Hal are right in the center of it.

Down Comes The Night is full of description, emotion, and fascinating characters. The prose, at times, is on the verge of being too flowery, the descriptions being too descriptive. Personally, I love it, but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. The romance is an enemy to lovers and is well-paced. Wren is in love with someone else at the beginning making it awkward that she falls for someone else so easily, but it comes back at the end and is concluded well. Wren is an emotional character and it shows. All the time. She knows she needs to be detached, but she’s not capable of it and her empathy is what gets her into trouble and makes her so wonderful.
