Review: The Night Mark – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Night Mark – Tiffany Reisz

The Night Mark deals with hope – how we need hope to move forward. To get out of bed in the morning. To care for ourselves and others. To care for our planet. The Night Mark has a magical feel to it, and a lot of that comes from Reisz’s excellent writing. It’s like a novel in a poem with a fantastical story in which realistic characters live their lives to the best of their abilities.

I wouldn’t be against more crossovers between The Hollows and The Drafter series, because Waylaid gave me the best of both worlds – namely Rachel, Jenks and Peri! It was a fun, short rump, and it was great seeing Rachel and Peri trying to figure each other out. For those who have not completely finished The Hollows series, there may be some small spoilers, but nothing major. The way Rachel was deposited into Peri’s world made me laugh, because Peri really doesn’t believe in supernatural happenings, even if she herself can go back in time to change things. […]
