I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
The Night Country and its predecessor is such a controversial book. People either really love it or really hate it. Personally, I really love this series. I will say, I loved The Hazel Wood a bit more than The Night Country. One thing I did not like about The Night Country was that there was no real recap or anything to bring you back to the story of The Hazel Wood. It just jumps immediately back into the story, so I would highly suggest reading the first book right before you start the second.
I really feel like The Night Country was very well written. Melissa Albert has come up with such a unique world and just does a beautiful job of immersing you into it. Even though there was no real recap, the story did continue beautifully and the characters were just well written. The story line is not rushed and felt very natural and organic.
Overall, The Night Country, was everything I had hoped for and more. It is still dark and wonderful. I will absolutely suck you in from the beginning. I loved the alternating perspectives, I love how when you shift to a different view it leaves you with tiny little cliffhangers.
I love this book, I love this series, and I love this author. Thank you kindly to NetGalley, Melissa Albert, and Flatrion Books for allowing me to review this dark and wonderful story.
