Court of Nightfall (Nightfall Chronicles 1)

Court of Nightfall book cover

by Karpov Kinrade
book review rating 4 out of 5

ONE LATE NIGHT, or you could say very early morning, I was perusing through Kindle Unlimited and came across Court of Nightfall (The Nightfall Chronicles 1). The narrator of the synopsis was hypnotic. She sounded so powerful, so haunting, so…promising.

You think you know what is right and what is wrong? Then tell me if this man should die. He is my enemy. He is to be my end.

He is the one I love.

The man asks for my surrender. He asks for peace. He is too late. The girl he knew is gone, and death is in her place. I am Nightfall, and this is my story. You think you know it?

Think again.

I knew then that I had to know her story.

Her name is Scarlett Night. Born colorblind, Scarlett has never used that as a crutch to prevent her from pursuing her dream of becoming a pilot. She works hard for what she wants – there is no one more dedicated. This makes her very relatable and likeable. Everything changes when an avenging angel descends upon her family, and she discovers that her “normal” parents are anything but. Her life is upended. She seeks comfort in the one person who has always been there for her and the one she secretly loves – Jaxton Lux. But, she soon finds out that he may be her greatest threat of all.

Scarlett is a heroine born from extreme pressure, but out of that pressure emerges a diamond of unparalleled brilliance. She seeks to defend the weak and give voice to the repress. Seeing her blossom into a young woman who overcomes hardships by doing what is right as oppose to what is easy, while still finding love and friendship in the process, makes Court of Nightfall one of the best coming-of-age stories.

However, I mean no disrespect to the dynamic husband (Dmytry Karpov) and wife (Kimberly Kinrade) team under the pen name Karpov Kinrade, I struggle to rate this book higher than 4 because of the errors I found. “There re only three ranks above him in the world…” is one of myriad errors I encountered. Otherwise, I absolutely enjoyed everything else!
