"Nothing, not even Devil's Night, was more magical, because tonight was the longest night of the year. It was special."

The clock at St. Killian’s chimes as whispers float in the dark staircase above.

Snow falls from the black sky beyond the windows, and candles glow, the flames lighting up the longest night of the year.⁣

Devil’s Night isn’t the only holiday we celebrate. T

I watched, my spine stiffening as Damon leaned down to get in my face. "I know what you did," he whispered.

i thought this was gonna be some cute wholesome shit during the holidays with some added back arching smut but it wasn’t and i’m not mad about it. feels like the main purpose of this novella was to build groundwork for future spin offs which i would be excited to read about if it happens.

not me mentally preparing myself for another steam room, catacomb, train orgy/threesome scene 😭 i remember EVERYTHING and i honestly just wanted to obliviate those scenes from my head.

but did i need to worry? nope.
it's okay guys, i can confirm we're all safe.

this was a cute novella of the Devil's Night people (im sorry i forgot what their group is called) hanging out with their kids during winter solstice aka Fire Night aka PG wholesome version of Devil's Night, doing rich people stuff with all

Penelope Douglas has given us some Devil's Night bonus content right in time for the holidays! This is a quick holiday novella told in all four horsemen's POVs (with a bonus POV for the epilogue!), set around almost a year before the epilogue in Nightfall. So Michael, Rika, Kai, Banks, Damon, Winter, Will, and Emmy are all grown up their children!

Fire Night is a new holiday tradition for our four families and I have to say I was so happy to be back in Thunder Bay

I wanted more kids. That was until I went over to Damon’s house and then I’d be running out the front door ten minutes later with a migraine. Their nanny day drank, and I wasn’t even going to pretend that I didn’t understand why.
Tag yourself. I'm the nanny.

As someone who couldn't care less about this series, this little novella turned out better than expected. There is no group orgy scene, I know, I can't believe it myself. Somebody better pinch me. 👀

This was actually and surprisingly cute?

So here are my random chaotic thoughts;

• I still don’t know how I feel about the fact that those psychos managed to start families. Kinda makes me think that everything is possible. Because if they managed to be parents, I could graduate, right? Right???
• The setting is so freakin atmospheric.
• The first half of the book was really sweet, cozy, and festive. It was nice to see those characters in a different holiday other than the devil’s night.

The Devil's Night series is one of my favorite dark romance series of all time. I love these characters deeply, and I was devastated to see them go. Penelope Douglas did us all a real solid by publishing this fantastic novella.

It gave me everything I wanted! The author has created such an atmospheric, nostaligic short story that delivers in every way you could hope for.

Fire Night itself is such a cool idea! I wish I could participate every year. Aside from that, we were treated to sex, suspense

spoilers? idk, maybe.

this was boujee and festive but also pretty freakin scary.

few (a lot) thoughts:

↠ i was EXCITED to read this novella mainly because these trouble makers are now in their 30s—omg can you believe it?! theyre like 아저씨 (ajusshis) and 아줌마 (ajummas)!!! wAT?!—AND we get to see them as parents. so i was looking forward to meet all the little heathens.

I went into this one having no idea what it was about. I got an e-arc from Penelope only two days after even learning this was even coming out, so I just dove right in!

This takes place after the four books in the Devil's Night series and around Christmastime. You DEFINITELY have to finish the series before reading this. Many details from all of the books pop up in here, so make sure you know the characters and their stories before going into this. That's all I want to say, but we do get the POV

“You can’t speak for a world when you only understand one point of view.”

I really liked this. it didn’t do much in redeeming this series for me but it was nice to see the gang with their families again. shed a tear or two but that’s about it.

there will definitely be a series for this 2nd generation and i’m honestly kinda excited to see what the kids will be up against in the future. Mads has already won me over—that sweet boy 🥺

“I gazed back at my wife, loving her this time of year most of all. She adored the music, the food, and all the little things. She couldn’t see the lights, but in a way, she did. She said they made the house feel different. Warmer, somehow. I loved that nothing escaped her. Even the scent of wrapping paper. It had never occurred to me wrapping paper had a scent, but she made me lie down under the tree every win

I was mentally preparing for some slightly cringy and totally not fitting to the plot/characters orgy scene(s).

BUT I'M HAPPY TO REPORT Y'ALL WE ARE SAFE!! The prayers have been heard, thank you lawdy.

This novella being 98 pages is broken into 4 chapters + Epilogue. This fun and suspenseful story is set around Christmas time/winter solstice aka Fire Night and told from the Four Horsemen POV. However, the Epilogue is told from Mads POV (Kai & Bank's son) and leaves it open for a future nex

soo going into this book, I didn’t expect much. Maybe just a cute little story updating us about what the four Horsemen and their families are up to these days + a glimpse of a possible 2nd gen series...but I didn’t think I’d be this hooked with a short novella? *flashbacks to Next to Never and how I was also hooked* The series itself had its ups and downs for me.

“No one stops us”

“No one owns us”

“And we’re not changing”

It was so good to be back home even if just for 28K word.

I loved and fell for each word .

They went through a not easy at all journey and seeing all of them now together , happy and with everything they wished for is mind-blowing and so emotional.

With this story we see the end of an era and hopefully the beginning of a new one .

I can’t even describe what’s like being finally once again in Damon , Kai , Michael and Will’s world once again .

This novella was such a nice surprise. For real, I loved to see those small glimpses of all the four couples, although they weren't much because of the drama, and since it's just a novella, I can live with it.

That scene in Damon's chapter 😭. (view spoiler)

I so deeply hope Penelope discovers a story that wants to be told and goes ahead with a series for the Devil’s Night kids ... I’m dying for more of Mads and Octavia and Athos and the Moreaus and all of the others!

This was a fun and exciting trip back to Thunder Bay, I love these characters.
