As I'm less active on social media than I used to be, I just thought I'd answer a few questions in advance, to give you a clearer sense of A Day of Fallen Night.

Esbar wrapped both arms around her neck, her warm cheek cradled by its curve, ribs sinking as she surrendered her breath.

For fifty years, she has trained to slay wyrms - but none have appeared since the Nameless One, and the younger generation is starting to question the Priory's purpose. Shannon has created a world rich in intricate mythology, beautifully realized and complex, and placed at its heart bold and vivid characters. Alternate covers, sprayed edges, foil details, and decorated endpapers are just a few of our favorite things.

I also felt like the threat level in this novel was greater than the one in The Priory, and I think the way Glorian in particular handled the threat was extremely well done.

I would have preferred more moments of drama and surprise in the middle of the book to lift things a little because it felt everything was being saved to the end and the conclusion of this series.

Rather than sequencing chapters to help build momentum or reinforce certain aspects of the story, the alternating perspectives give the novel a disjointed feel, compromising the flow of the story. Samantha Shannon is the New York Times bestselling author of The Bone Season and The Roots of Chaos series. A Day of Fallen Night continues Priory’s themes of religion and the role of religion in defining history. When I read Priory, the story immediately sucked me in, and I felt an instant attachment to nearly every character. Glorian Berethnet is the princess of Inys and heir to her mother's throne, in a long line of female monarchs whose bloodline keeps the Nameless One at bay.How she cared for her daughter, how she cared for her people, her kingdom, was so powerful, and I loved her all the more for it. I hope that there continues to be books put out from this world, because, as I said, I believe there to be many more stories to tell. Even the short scenes that were from other points of view provided the story with some of its best moments. Knowing it's a standalone, I assumed exactly how it would end from the start and it does just about that.
