Synopsis:
When her world divides, pitting light against dark, Veda must join a dangerous revolution to save her grandfather and fight against injustice…even if it costs her the boy she loves.
On the island of Bellona, life is peaceful–as long as the citizens dutifully worship the Sun, which protects them from all harm. Seventeen-year-old Veda knows that keeping the Sun happy will protect her and her grandfather from the Night, the dangerous people who snatch innocent citizens from their beds under the cover of darkness, never to be seen again. As long as Veda follows the rules, she will be safe.
But when Veda’s grandfather is offered up as the next sacrificial offering to keep the Sun’s favor, she starts to see that the safety she’s been promised comes at a dangerous price. Maybe there is more to fear above than there is below.
With a mysterious young man, Dorian, at her side, Veda has to figure out if the scary bedtime stories she grew up hearing are real–or dangerous lies.

Review of Beware The Night

Review (4 Stars): Beware The Night was a beautifully written story about doing whatever it takes to protect the people that we care about. Veda knows that she needs to be safe by not going out at night but that means not being able to provide for her family.  When her grandfather is chosen as a sacrifice for the Sun, Veda will fight against the odds to keep him safe from harm.

Veda was a great character that had doubts about what she was being told and what she should believe.  I loved her spirit and determination and Beware The Night will keep you on the edge of your seat at you follow Veda’s journey as she struggles to find the truth about the stories that she has been told.  This is a great story and shouldn’t be missed.
