The night and the land is an urban fantasy story about Sally Wildfire and Rob Coscan. The story is set in the small town of Brattleboro, Vermont. It is haunted and dangerous. Sally is on the run and happens to meet Rob, a drifter with powers and madness he is unaware of. The dynamic of them both created a compelling and thought-provoking story.
The dark fantasy had strong world-building. Rob’s heritage, his background, personality, and his struggle trying to fit in the Earth liners were appealing to me. I believe what stood out the most was the vital characteristics of the storyline. The author did an outstanding job allowing the reader to learn more about them.
The story was well written. The pace was steady and filled with consistent scenes of descriptive writing. It was effortless to melt into the story and forget about your surroundings.
There were many aspects of the storyline which could have created more sideline segments or a series of books moving forward. I am not sure if the author has any plans to follow up after this book but, there is definitely room for more adventure.
I recommend this book to people who like dark fantasy and urban fantasy stories.
