“Scraping by in classes, hanging out with his best friend Charlie, and trying to get a date with Lara Hanover, the prettiest girl in school—that was Nick Robbins’ life.
Survival was the last thing on his mind.
Then, a strange cloud appeared over the city. A cloud that kept growing. The darkness on the horizon consumed the light around it. And Nick’s dad, a Department of Defense energy physicist, might have something to do with it. Soon, it became clear that the world Nick knew would never be the same.
Now, night is never-ending. The temperature is falling as heat leaves the world. Plants and animals are dying and people are turning into predators waiting for any small advantage. But Nick is determined not to disappear like the fading light. Desperate to glimpse a familiar face in the shadows, Nick races to find his friends—and the one clue that’s his glimmer of hope.”
This book is surprisingly good. At first when I started it I wasn’t sure I would like it. But soon it came down to scientist, experiments, conspiracy theory, and a world left in darkness and chaos.
What I adored most about this book is the great plot line. At first, things went slow but the build up to a darkness exploding left my mind reeling. I loved that with a new chapter, this darkness took me by surprise. In an instant, I intrigued and hooked with new rules that came upon me.
The love interest in the book is another element that went a completely different direction than what I thought it was going. Really, I thought it be some one date and be done for, but they way it bloomed within the darkness really kept me on my toes. I loved that during this new nightworld, they took comfort in each other. They help each other out in rather difficult situations and even fell in love. It was like they saw each other differently and had a whole new perspective of things.
The Nightworld is an intensely fast world that darkens right before the readers eyes. The terror of darkness fall on the earth as people run in chaos gives the reader a run for their life. The Nightworld is a great read.
I give it 4 BITES!
