You think you know what is right and what is wrong? Then tell me if this man should die. He is my enemy. He is to be my end.
He is the one I love.
I have spent my life in shades of grey. I have died and returned to a world of color. I have fought an Angel and lived. I have kissed the Prince of Ravens. I have faced the Lord of Night and made him kneel. I was accepted into the Four Orders, and I created the fifth. I freed the Shadow of Rome. I sat upon the Twilight Throne.
The man asks for my surrender. He asks for peace. He is too late. The girl he knew is gone, and death is in her place. I am Nightfall, and this is my story. You think you know it?

Even better reading it a second time
This is one of my favorite series and I usually won’t pick favorites because I love books. This first book in the series is about a poor, kind of regular girl growing up in what seems to be almost a post apocalyptic world. There were several wars that remade society and combining a poor society, full of bigotry and the Templar Knights. Only in this story there are several types of nights. The society is formed around their hate of Zeniths, which are people whose ancestors reproduced with angels and they have special powers. Instead of training these people and thinking of them as special they are considered worse than second rate citizens. Scarlett , the main character, starts off the story as a young child and she grows up throughout the book. Scarlet is brilliant but the authors have mastered showing her age, innocence and growth at different stages of her life. Scarlet is not like the others in the book, she wants to be zenith and makes friends with zenith children. This book really sets the stage for the later books. It shows how she grows as a person, learns, thinks and the relationships that shape her into the great person she becomes. As a child Scarlett has a unique way of thinking that other kids usually don’t follow yet her age still shows through the writing. The character building is great and very complete. Her parents are loving, great parents who teach her things that normal kids don’t get to learn but it is obvious there is a little more going on in adult land than little scarlet knows. I have a knack for figuring out a book, movie or premise of something within the first few chapters of 15 minutes. Even knowing what happens later, I was not able to predict what these secrets were her parents had and all of the multiple storylines that come out later. This book is brilliantly written and as you read more of the books you learn more about what was happening as Scarlett was a child. Scarlett is a brave, tough and stubborn main character. All the characters, such as Scarlett, her friends, mentor and family are likable characters and very well developed. There are multiple storylines upon multiple storylines that are all there for a reason and eventually come together. But not all in this book. I have never seen another author keep up with so many secrets and different things happening at the same time as in this series. I love that you never know who is doing what , who you should trust and what people’s true motivations for anything are. I have been waiting a long time for the 3rd book, I believe, to come out, but rereading this book I can see how intricate the process has writing has to be and how it would take a lot of time and effort to come up with this great of a world/characters/storyline and keep everything and everyone straight. A lot of authors forget someone’s name in a sequel, these characters may have several names or lives and they are all kept straight which is amazing. I’m trying not to skip ahead as I couldn’t stop reading long enough to write a review, I read 2 of the short stories and the second book before I could take a break and write this. The books are that good. I recommend not skipping the novellas as the have great information in them to help you better understand what is happening in the books. They are important. I hate novellas usually and usually skip them. These are necessary. I’m excited about the new book coming out this year and am rereading the series. Even knowing what happens it is still exciting and there was a ton of stuff i didn’t remember from the first time so it is just as good if not better the second time. I don’t want to give anything away or I’d give a more detailed review. I haven’t read a Karpov-kinrade book I didn’t like, yet, but this series is my favorite of theirs and prob my favorite series ever. I would say I wish their were more books but the books are so long and detailed it took me almost a week to read the first book and I usually read a book in 1-3 days. I’m very glad I was able to reread this book and am very happy they made it free for all of us for a few days so that I can own it! Thank you to Karpov-Konrad for all your hard work and great minds that came up with this world that is full of secrets and subterfuge.
I never get tired of this series. I'm doing a re-read in preparation for the next book in the series releasing next month. I'm doing my best to draw it out, but I can't help but devour these books. The world building and character development is phenomenal. The action scenes are great, and not over-detailed to the point where I got bored (which I often do if they are drawn-out and detailed fighting). And of course, this series has the classic Karpov Kinrade plot twists that make their books so gripping and leave you guessing in the best way!
