Review of EVERNIGHT by Candace Knoebel

        One lie will change everything.
        Faye Middleton has secured the Dagger of Retribution for the High Priesthood, but in doing so, she’s opened the door to more demands set by them. She now has to break the Holy Seal, and soon. Trapped in the alluring Ethryeal City, Faye is pushed to the breaking point trying to discover just what she is truly capable of, even if it means destroying herself in the process.
        With the clock ticking down to the war between both Covens, and the truth about her parent’s mysterious disappearance within her reach, Faye is faced with tough choices that will forever change her. Will Faye be able to handle the demands from the Priesthood, and still be able to continue her search for her parents?
        But more importantly, can she survive the truth she finds?

        This is book two in the Night Watchmen series, and I definitely recommend reading these in order. Let me begin by saying I’m not a big fan of the new trend of having books end with cliffhangers and storylines that span many books. There are, of course, exceptions. This series has enough substance and storyline to justify being written in several books.
        Evernight starts off almost exactly where the first book left off. There is a little gap, but it’s easy to fill in what happened. Overall the story flowed really well and kept me hooked from page one until page “What? It can’t be over; I need more.” The only thing I didn’t like was how Gavin and Cassie seemed to behave much less mature than they had in the previous book. Some of their comments seemed more like things a young teen would say. They were not focused on through much of the book so it didn’t bother me too much. I really enjoyed the development of Faye’s character as she matured and learned to control her power. Things don’t run smoothly for her, and there were times when I was just wishing she’d get a break. It was also nice to learn more about Weldon and see his growth as a character. I am definitely looking forward to the next installment in this series.
