There are some rare reviews which seem to engage fully with the book in a way an author can only dream about. This review of Last Song Before Night is one of these, on top of being incredibly generous. For a taste:
“The beginning of [Last Song Before Night] is a captivating page-turner of winding threads, set in a fictional city that has its own tangible twilight atmosphere. The pace is steady and eventful, introducing one twist after another, never lagging. However, this is nothing compared to reading the middle for the first time — written with blood from a quickly beating heart, it left me no choice but to read on and on to find out what happened to the characters I already cared so much about, poised on a knife-edge the whole time, not only physically in danger but in spiritual and moral peril as well, with truly everything at stake. This goes on almost to the end and the satisfying conclusion.”
