Each time I finish a book by Eliza Victoria, I am reminded of why I like her works so much. Every book reinforces my admiration and awe at her talent. This latest offering, Nightfall, is like an extended episode of Black Mirror, though more relatable because of its local setting. The mystery kept me reading until my curiosity was sated. I like her Philippine mythology-themed stories more but this speculative novella is a worthwhile read, as well.

This is probably my favourite novel by Eliza Victoria to date; she just keeps on getting better!

Night Fall is a novel told as a collection of short stories set in a distant future of flying cars and body modifications, a future that's still very familiar because of unequal wealth distribution and how cheap life is when you're poor. I totally read them as separate stories with recurring characters until halfway to the end when I realised what was really happening and how the novel was structured,

Nightfall by Eliza Victoria is a story that mainly revolves around biomodifcation technology, where the main goal is to provide human enhancements by giving back the disabled or the injured their abilities or "enhancing" healthy individuals to be more.

This book tackles various important points, which include:
1. The Rich and the Poor
It talks about the difference between being rich and being poor, but more specifically, how different it is to be born rich. It talks about privilege, and how wanting

As always, Ms. Eliza's words are as powerful as ever. From its brilliant world building to the mind-blowing twists, Night Fall did not fail to deliver. It entwines stories within stories and tangles up characters in the most unexpected ways. But as it concludes, every piece will fit together like a puzzle - leaving its readers in awe.⁣

This is humanity's subsubsubdesire. Reminds me of Black Mirror X Love Death and Robots mashup. Amazing! I was not able to put it down!

Dystopian. Dark. Distrustful. Uncertain.

Rapid Review:

The plot is eccentric and interesting. The characters are fleshed out with the chapters divided into POVs but unnecessary things and character arcs are drawn out that did not add up to the cohesiveness of the story.
Despite how unsettled I felt with this book, I’m willing to read more Eliza Victoria.
