Very good book! I am very surprised by how much I enjoyed reading this book. The basic story is very clever with the demons that come out at night and humanity's complete fear of them. I like how it takes us from the villages to the cities in what was some fantastic world-building. I also enjoyed the character building and how we get to meet our main characters early in their lives and them jump forward just a bit to when they had come into their own.

The only reasons that this book was not 5 stars is that it did not really have an ending. The story did not build up to the ending, it just keeps moving along. The final chapters were simply the next chapters in what will be a trilogy (or more). I understand that this book sets up a much larger story, but I still would have appreciated the effort to make it stand alone a bit better.

With that said, I still loved it and am looking forward to the next installment.
