After months in captivity, Apaay managed to escape Yuki's labyrinth with her life. But her freedom did not come without a steep cost. When the Face Stealer, the North's most notorious demon, calls in her blood oath, Apaay must heed his demand. Debts, after all, must be repaid.

As Apaay attempts to navigate her uprooted life, something dark slithers among the snow-dusted con

3.5 stars

Night was the sequel to Below that expanded on the first book well, although it was a bit too overwhelming at times.

Plot: 3.5/5
Characters: 4/5
Writing: 4/5

In this book, Apaay was out of survival mode and everything that had befallen her in the labyrinth came crashing down on her. Her trauma was explored in a raw, emotive manner, so much so that her guilt, grief and despair were almost palpable. I felt sad watching her push everyone trying to help her away and make choices that were clea

Night is the impressive follow-up to Below, part of Warwick's North trilogy that is inspired by Inuit mythology and set in the Arctic. I really enjoyed the incorporation of Inuit mythology and the beautiful setting and story that Warwick created in the first book, so I was really excited to have a chance to read Night early., and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest.

Night felt considerably slower-paced than Below, but I think it matched the story

I didn't think it was possible for Alexandria Warwick to top Below, the first book in this series. But she totally did. The world gets bigger in Night, and the characters grow so much more. The plot adds on new layers and new twists, setting up bigger problems and questions for the next two books to answer. The only thing I'm angry about is having to wait for the next books to come out. I NEED THEM NOW.

This book starts out slowly. Apaay has a lot of trauma to overcome, and she doesn't trust peop

Initial Thoughts

I applied to be an ARC reader for this title the second I found out Alexandria Warwick was looking! I absolutely loved Below and couldn’t wait to read this sequel. I just finished reading this book last night and it was incredible.

Some Things I Liked

Plot twists. As I’ve said in many other reviews, it’s very hard to surprise me. I’ve read hundreds of books and have seen many a plot twist so shock factor goes a long way with me. This book had all the drama and twists that even I di

ARC provided by the author. All opinions are my own.
"'It's quite clever, actually. Yuki does have a flair for the dramatic, in case you hadn't noticed.'
Oh, she'd noticed."

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of the first book in this series, Below, last year and LOVED it, so when I was offered the chance to get the sequel, I jumped on it the first chance I got! Not only is the cover stunning, but THIS BOOK WAS EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST! I'm a bit sad that I finished the entire thing in two sit

I loved Below because it was a thrilling adrenaline rush of a book. Which was unlike anything I’ve ever read before but this was even better. So amazing that I wish this series had 10 books instead of 4 because I loved that we got to see the actual world in this one, Instead of spending almost the whole thing in Yuki’s magical ice prison. That and I loved learning more about the Seal, Wolf, owl and polar bear unua. Though I’m still having trouble taking the seal unua seriously as v

Night picks up straight after the events of Below. Apaay is free from the labyrinth and has been found on deaths door by an Analak villager, but they don’t trust Apaay. There are rumours going round of a young girl destroying Analak villages and they are unwilling to believe that Apaay, a girl they do not know, has nothing to do with it. But Apaay knows the truth after seeing the destruction Yuki left in her village, and she knows there is no hiding from it. So when the Face Stealer comes to cal ...more

I absolutely was blown away by Night by Alexandria Warwick.

This is the second book in her North series (see review of book one here), which is a dark fantasy series based on Inuit Mythology. I ADORED everything about this second book. It was even better than the first, and the storyline is developing in such a great way.

The characters growth is phenomenal in this book, and I love the way that Warwick has taken the story. It was not at all what I was expecting, but I really enjo

Full review on my blog, Storied Adventures!

Whew! This sequel was SO GOOD! One of the best sequels I've read in a long time! I am officially in the Face Stealer's fan club!! I LOVE him! Think of The Darkling mixed with Cardan. Yeah, I went there.
Apaay was a bit annoying with her attitude BUT she was going through PTSD. It was handled really well! Ila was super interesting with her story line. I felt so bad for her! But we learn a lot about her!
I also loved the clans!

This year Alexandria Warwick returns with Apaay’s quest to save her sister and escape the aftermath of her time in the perilous labyrinth. If you’re a fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender or the Grishaverse universe, you have to take a step into Warwick’s world in the North. The plot was so expansive and Apaay is truly a heroine that is evolving beautifully against the dark realities of her world. The writing continues to ebb with the magic of this world and leaves readers reeling for the next inst ...more

This sequel to Below is exactly what I hoped it would be. The detail in every page kept me hooked and I read this faster than any other book I’ve picked up this year. This series has become one of my favourites and I can’t stop telling people about it.

4/5 🦄
Night continues Apaay’s story, though she is very different from before. Thoroughly traumatized by her experiences, she becomes suicidal in her guilt and shame. But the Face Stealer Numiak will not allow her to roam free and unprotected—she is bound to him by a blood oath and he intends to collect. Meanwhile a favorite character, Ila, who was a fellow prisoner in Below, now takes a more prominent role with her own perspective told. Her story is one of self discovery in a way that both

Wow, wow, wow! Thoroughly impressed by the second installment. So much pain, healing, strength...I can't wait for the next book.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review and will post a full review closer to the release date.
