Famine threatens the Nightlands. Powerful magic wielder Clementine wants nothing more than to sell her magical lily lamps in the market and avoid trouble.

Darling Clementine must act or Knight’s people will die.
I’m not sure how I felt about this book. In the beginning, I was confused, so very confused. It’s one of the few times where I wished for an infodump just to fill me in. We have the Nightlands which is in perpetual darkness and Daylands which has perpetual day. Clementine is a flower girl, she sells flowers which glow and somehow she uses magic to enhance that glow. Oh and she is able to change into a dove. It took me over three chapters to figure this all out.
As the story continues, you find out about why there is a split between the two lands, except it wasn’t as clear as I would’ve liked. A lot of it was me threading pieces together, hoping I had the right answer. I’m still confused about the star in the sky and why it blinked for their meal breaks.
Knight is a wolf, kind of like a werewolf, kind of not. He could change into a wolf and was the alpha of the clan. Information about the clan trickled through and I got a slightly better understanding about them by the end of the book. I did enjoy the battle near the end, and one part had me holding my breath, waiting for the outcome.
Overall, I do want to read the next book. It didn’t end on a cliffhanger, although there was enough of a hook to entice me to continue. Perhaps next time I’ll be less confused! 😉
