down comes the night review

“Should we survive this, if you will have me, I will follow you wherever you go. Whatever use you have for me, I am at your disposal.”

Hello, my name is Katie and I am an Allison Saft stan.

Raise your hand if you like Kerri Maniscalco and Margaret Rogerson.

Then you need Down Comes the Night! The reaper and the healer. Hal Cavendish and Wren Southerland. I am TRASH for Hal and his kindness and tenderness. SUCH a monster, that one. (That came out sounding super British). Wren and her sensitive nature… talk about a relatable character! Allison Saft’s debut novel is crawling with darkness: missing soldiers, murder, squeamish anatomical transplants (yikes! ojos!), ghosts and memories. Think along the lines of Stalking Jack the Ripper. A must read at any time, BUT perfection for a rainy, autumn day.

ps. if you are a tabber, you’re going to need an entire pack. Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration but STILL. You’re going to tab up a storm!
