A Non-Spoiler-Free Collection of my Thoughts on Darkdawn

Sooo… I recently finished Darkdawn, which was one of my most anticipated releases of September, and… I loved it! I have some thoughts about the book, and I thought I’d share them here. This post will contain spoilers, so if you haven’t read Darkdawn/The Nevernight Chronical yet, and you plan on doing so, pleasepleaseplease don’t continue reading.

Some of you even read more than 50 books already! Nevertheless, I’m still excited that I have come this far with my reading, because last year I didn’t even come close to this number..
