Nightborn by Jessica Thorne. Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture.

Grace and Bastien return in their electrifying, magical style, in Nightborn, the sequel to Mageborn.


In a foreign court, surrounded by treachery and duplicitous enemies, Grace and Bastien are on a dangerous discovery – what malevolent darkness is taking over the Mageborn?


Bastien and Grace meet their biggest challenges yet. Bastien is given an ultimatum – marry Princess Rynn or face total destruction. And Grace is drawn deeper into the darkness that has a hold of her.


Full of non-stop fantastical action, Nightborn brings Bastien and Grace together with their small, but faithful friends, making ultimate sacrifices to help save the kingdom from evil ruin.


I loved Grace’s character development. While she is still tough, cautious, distrustful, she lets that guard down ever-so-slightly. Bastien - there were times I think he could have been bolder, more dauntless. But together, they are a romantic and fearless power duo.


An excellent continuation of the first book that will keep you eagerly reading from start to finish.


Highly recommended.


Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the read of Jessica Thorne’s, Nightborn (The Hollow King Book 2).
