He saw the darkness in her magic. She saw the magic in his darkness.
Wren Southerland’s reckless use of magic has cost her everything: she’s been dismissed from the Queen’s Guard and separated from her best friend—the girl she loves. So when a letter arrives from a reclusive lord, asking Wren to come to his estate, Colwick Hall, to cure his servant from a mysterious illness, she seizes her chance to redeem herself.
The mansion is crumbling, icy winds haunt the caved-in halls, and her eccentric host forbids her from leaving her room after dark. Worse, Wren’s patient isn’t a servant at all but Hal Cavendish, the infamous Reaper of Vesria and her kingdom’s sworn enemy. Hal also came to Colwick Hall for redemption, but the secrets in the estate may lead to both of their deaths.
With sinister forces at work, Wren and Hal realize they’ll have to join together if they have any hope of saving their kingdoms. But as Wren circles closer to the nefarious truth behind Hal’s illness, they realize they have no escape from the monsters within the mansion. All they have is each other, and a startling desire that could be their downfall.
Allison Saft’s Down Comes the Night is a snow-drenched romantic fantasy that keeps you racing through the pages long into the night.

I hope that you’re having a lovely day! One big thing that I have been working on is reading with intention: paying more attention to what I’m reading, how I’m reading, and what I’m then recommending to customers in store. In order to do this I’ve set the following goals to help guide me in the right direction of becoming a better reader, bookseller, and person over the course of 2021.Read More »
Greetings from the night shift, my name is Taylor and I have loved pretty much everything to do with books for as long as I can remember. My life is peppered with memories punctuated with the book I was reading at the time. I still remember the first book that I stayed up until sunrise reading because I HAD to finish it, and countless times being busted trying to read by holding my book up to the hallway nightlight. Books have been my refuge when I have felt alone, and no matter what I was feeling, I’ve always found something to read that has an answer for me.
Reading is something that is really important and personal to me, however it is also something that has allowed me to connect with others and I have gained many friends through a shared love of reading. Especially now that I have the privilege of working in a bookstore and can share my love and enthusiasm for reading with others almost every day.
Over the course of this past year I have been slowly getting into the practice of not only reading a book and moving on, but thinking more critically about what I consume. So this blog is a space for me to share my thoughts on books, reading, and sharing recommendations.
Thank you for joining me, I think that this is going to be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to share my love of reading with you all!
All my love,
