    One thought on “Nightfall”

    1. dnf at 30% i just have no interest in the world or characters anymore. i may have continued reading but the first 30% is just so dull and i don't care about anything and i'm too bored to read on to see if it improves

    2. Wow. So many emotions going on in my brain right now. I loved the first book in this series dearly, but Nightfall completely upped the bar and blew it right out of the water. The plot was more complex, the prose flowed beautifully, and the author managed to take me on one, endless emotional roller coaster. One minute I was laughing and the next, I wanted to cry. So many highs and lows. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but be prepared to sob. The angst is real.

    3. Copied from my Review:Okay. I loved the first book. This second book has so many of the wonderful qualities of the first. Interesting characters you care about. Fun and creative world building. A plot that really does pull you along. All these things add up to a fast and enjoyable read.But.This one thing took me from a 5 star review to a 3. **Spoilers** The "separation" cliche is overused and we all know its to create conflict for the story and blah blah. Here it 'almost' natural at first but w [...]

    4. Before I begin, a word of warning must be giving to everyone uncomfortable with homosexuality. This is a story about two boys who fall in and out of love. If you have a problem with that, I suggest you do not read this book and keep your religious beliefs, your political beliefs, or your personal beliefs to your self.If you do not have the above problem, then feel free to continue with the review or just buy the book and read it. I am totally okay with whatever you decide to do.Nightfall is the [...]

    5. Complimentary review copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review. You know that old Murphy's Law adage? The one that says "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong", well this book takes it to the max, making for a darker read than the first book. There was also plenty of political intrigue, magic, mystery and romance just as there had been in the first book. I hate comparing two books but when the second one is a follow up to a good story it just begs to be compared and in this co [...]

    6. Awww shoot. This book was a heartbreaker. But I loved every minute of it. Romance, betrayal, political intrigue and lots of missed clues about relationships. Sounds a bit dark b and it was, but I can't wait to see what happens next to these characters that I have so enjoyed spending time with.

    7. Shiriluna Nott and Saja H have once again woven an intricate and compelling tale with Nightfall: the Chronicles of Arden #2. The story picks up several years after A Call to Arms and continues to follow the trials of Gib and Joel. The plot and betrayal continues to thicken with many new twists to the story. My only regret is that several plot lines were not resolved by the end of this novel. I hope that the third book completes the tale.

    8. A fantastic Fantasy Romance. The drama was dealt with wonderfully and created interesting scenarios for the reader to enjoy reading. I've read the book more than five times, don't think I'll get tired of it anytime soon.

    9. 4.5 Heart Review by DanWe’ve jumped ahead three years since the end of book one. I’ll be honest, I was little put off by that. It seemed we totally skipped the relationship building between Gib and Joel, and now they are companions of three years.Gib is now the understudy to the King’s Seneschal, who you will remember is Joel’s father. Joel is now the understudy to Arden’s top Ambassador and has been away for six months on a peaceful mission to another land.Things aren’t going all th [...]

    10. Some rule says the second book of a series has to be bleak. This certainly fits the bill. I can't think of much that goes right here. I have to hold out hope that things will turn out well in the next book, due in the fall. We are reunited with our old friends from book one. As previously, I have trouble placing the secondary characters. I cannot remember who is related to whom, and what positions they hold. Liro acts just as despicably as before, but we see glimpses of vulnerability. I feel som [...]

    11. So not as good as the first but the first would have been hard to book. This very much feels like a transition novel. Its just a stop before we get to the next one. That doesn't make it bad but it just didn't grab me quite as much. This one felt much more like a YA novel with lots of angst and relationship issues. I understand that these have to exist but when the writing is so clear that two people should be together and they are not together makes for some not so fun scenes. It just feels like [...]

    12. Pro:OMG! I just finished the second book and I am just beside myselfI have laughed and cried and gotten pissed off.I can't believe the bad guys are winning!!! Con:The Gib and Joel seperation should have ended when the returned home and Joel needed him most this should have been when they poured their hears out to each other and became stronger together again.Suspicion:I think that maybe Neetra did something to Liro's mind when he was younger to turn him the way he is that is why he gets headache [...]

    13. I loved the first book in this series a lot. But Nightfall completely took me by surprise and I just really enjoyed this book immensely. It has so many of the wonderful qualities of the first. Interesting characters you care about. The world building was just so creative and interesting. I liked the fact that the author made the plot more complex, and really put her characters through some hard times. I am a definite fan of this series and can't wait for the next installment to see where the aut [...]

    14. I received an ARC from the author in exchange for a fair review. I liked this book well enough but not quite as much as the first book in the series. The second book has everything a good fantasy should have politics, romance, mystery and more.However I found that this book did wander a bit. There were scenes that seemed to jump from one to another at times erratically for me anyway.I did enjoy the adventures of Gibbon, Joel and the rest of the gang it was just a little bit tougher for me to rea [...]

    15. While I really liked the first book in this series, I LOVED this one and Ms. Nott has completely captured my attention with the story. I did have some problems with the direction that she took Gib & Joel, it seems a little too much like something you would see on a CW teen soap series, the overall story is incredible. I'm off to hoping the third book has been released - it says Fall 2015 but it didn't pop up when I finished it. I'm really hoping if I have to wait - it won't be long.

    16. DepressingI don't think I can continue.I hate reading books where the good guys are cluelesse treachery was right in their faces but everybody was asking dumb questions and standing aroundI get having the bad guys get away with some stuff but to make the good ones seem incompetentHELL NO!!

    17. Follow up to A Call to Arms, a story that I loved reading. This second chapter of Gib's story is just too overwhelmingly catastrophic for my tastes. I had to put it down several times before finishing due to just how wrong everything was going. But I did finish it and will read the next chapter. But, I probably won't like it for a good way into it.

    18. Loved it. Book 3 was supposed to have been out last fall, but it's not showing up on . :(They need to hurry up and release it so I can continue on in this wonderful tail. I want to know if Joel and GiB will get things worked out and get back together were they belong.

    19. This was a great installment to the series and I loved seeing how the characters have grown even if it was sometimes sad and frustrating to read. always a sign of a good author when they can frustrate you but you can't put the book down!

    20. This book was rather dominated by the antics of the antagonists as well as the romantic tragedies of the heroes and their allies leading in an overall gloomy book that I did not enjoy as much as the first novel.

    21. Too many bad things happen to give it a higher rating. I kept having to stop reading because I didn't like what was happening.

    22. I really hope the "misunderstanding" gets cleared up early on in the next book. It's too distracting from a really good story. Really looking forward to the next book.
