27 Hours (The Nightside Saga #1)
by Tristina Wright

ebook404 pages
Expected publication: October 3rd 2017 by Entangled: Teen

Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.

But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.

Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother's shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon's darkest secret.

They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.

During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.

27 Hours is a sweeping, thrilling story featuring a stellar cast of queer teenagers battling to save their homes and possibly every human on Sahara as the clock ticks down to zero.

This was a book that I was really looking forward to. I seriously could not wait to get my hands on this book! The synopsis of the book drew me in and I was so excited to get lost in this book. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into this book. I think a lot of people will love this book, but sadly, it just wasn't for me. 

Even though I didn't love this book, there were some things I really enjoyed about this book. One of the best things about this book was the diversity. I SERIOUSLY LOVED THE DIVERSITY IN THIS BOOK!!! THERE WAS SO MUCH DIVERSITY AND I WAS LIVING FOR IT!! GIVE ME MORE DIVERSE BOOKS LIKE THIS ONE, PLEASE! I also really liked the characters in this book. The characters were all unique and extremely interesting. Each character was well developed and they had a lot of growth throughout the story. I know a lot of readers will really connect with the characters and love them to pieces. 

One of the things I did not like about this book was the world building. I had a really hard time wrapping my mind around the world the author created in this book. I felt like there was a lot of information in a short amount of time which made it really hard for me to understand. Some of the timelines also were hard for me to really understand. The way the fantasy elements were presented just did not connect with me. I still think the author created a really imaginative world, but I just never got into it. There were also some plotlines that didn't gel with me, which caused me to lose some interest. 

I wasn't a huge fan of the writing style. There were some moments of really beautiful words, but most times, it felt too detailed for me. The writing was so dense and detailed at times that I got lost in the words and I couldn't even remember what I was reading about in the first place. However, the author did a great job at writing fast-paced action scenes!

Overall, I don't think this is a bad book. I am sure a lot of people will love this book, which I totally understand! This is just one of those cases where the book was not meant for me.
