I loved listening to the sountrack for AGENT CARTER while I was drafting. I wanted something fun and a little dieselpunk. In general, I love drafting to soundtracks, they're often so emotional.(less)

Thank you for your question Lillian! And thank you for your compliment on the title, we agonized over it.

In November 2014 I began hearing things about the Night Witches, a Night Bombing regiment composed entirely of women, created in Russia during WWII. These women flew outdated training planes over the front lines at night. They often bombed strategic targets, but sometimes they flew supplies and even soldiers to their own troops.

If you'd like to read more about them, I highly recommend 'A Dance with Death' by Anne Noggle, or 'Wings, Women and War by Reina Pennington.(less)

Fierce. Feminist. Fearless. I loved, loved, loved OUR REALM IS THE NIGHT. I want to BE a fighter pilot in this book. It recounts the tale of Revna, a traitor's daughter with prosthetic (living metal, omg) legs and Linee, the governor's daughter who dresses like a boy to get into the army. They couldn't be more different. Revna, afraid that she's a curse to her family, wants to keep her mother and sister safe, to provide for them because her father is gone, and Linee, closed off from her emotions ...more

I absolutely LOVE the magic system in this book. Living metal (it’s so cool!), the Weave, hot and cold spark—they’re all parts of the same whole, which Claire does a fantastic job of working into the character’s daily lives. Everything about the world is wonderfully fleshed out, which is one of the many things I really liked about the book.

After the great worldbuilding, I’d have to say my other favorite part was the characters. Revna is strong, brave, and determined. Linne is coarse and fierce

I count myself exceedingly lucky to have been able to read an early copy of this book. The writing is lush and evocative. The world-building is atmospheric and immersive. The main characters, Revna and Linne, are incredibly strong and complex, both in their own unique ways. And with its cast of capable female characters, this is a story I wish I could take back in time and give to my teenage self. Though the universe is fictional, these young women navigate deeply realistic hurtles and inequalit ...more

I adored every second of this breathtaking book! The world building blew me away. Bartlett's gritty, war-torn world feels slightly reminiscent of WWII while still being completely fresh and original. The magic system is SO unique and inventive, between the spark and weave and (my favorite) living metal. And the CHARACTERS!! Gahhhh I loved Revna and Linne so much. Their stakes and motivation are so personal--you can't help but root for them. And as polar opposites, I especially loved how they dem ...more

EXCUUUUSE me?

"...use their magic in a special women's military flight unit and undertake terrifying, deadly missions under cover of darkness."



THIS. SOUNDS. PERFECT.

I'm sure many people will love this book for the magical elements, but for me, it was the realistic elements that absolutely hooked me. I loved the strong female leads, their messy friendship, and the details of life in a male-dominated military. Plot-wise, the story is fast-paced and full of action. Fans of YA fantasy will surely love this, and it should also appeal to fans of YA historicals like Gwen Katz' AMONG THE RED STARS (about the Night Witches in WWII).

I read it one day!!! Two strong, but very different female protagonists trying to survive a militaristic world at war. Both are sympathetic and both struggle with what in means to be loyal to the fellow female pilots but also to the Union. Unique, thought-provoking, with a fabulous flare of feminism and female empowerment. I’m eager to get my hands on the sequel.
