When her plans align with that of a forlorn prince, who holds the power of moving between worlds, she sets her sights on a prize worth taking, but is the risk worth the consequences?

The world building is both complex and I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The descriptions of the Latino inspired culture also drew me right into the story, and I could almost imagine myself walking the colourful, magical streets, and eating the wonderful Hispanic foods depicted.

If anything, I would have appreciated more Latin flavours scattered throughout the book to really elevate this to the next level.

It tried to be different. I also found the two central characters, Finn and Alfie, likeable and fun. This brings me onto my main point, which is the story itself.

Aside from the Latino elements, the plot is a rehash of a lot of other YA novels that have done the rounds in the last couple of years.

This meant that at times I really struggled through the plot because I knew what was going to happen before it did. Nothing is particularly memorable either, and I just ended up feeling very underwhelmed at the wasted potential.

Imagine my delight when I received this book in one of my April subscription boxes and this gorgeous special edition no less!

Of course I had to immediately dive into this book read the full review on my blog : here! Of course I had to immediately dive into this book!

What is Nocturna about? Set in a Latinx-inspired world, Nocturna centers around professional thief, Finn Voy, who uses magic to take on many faces but her own.

But, when she is caught by a mobster, and the only way out is a heist of something valuable in the Castellan palace, she is faced with the danger of losing her magic forever.

Finn teams up with prince Alfie, who is grieving the loss of his brother, and is desperately trying to find a way to get him back.

However, the two of them accidentally unleash a horrific power, and, in order to contain it, Finn and Alfie are forced to work together.

Will this unlikely alliance work? Reading Nocturna was such a pleasant experience: I found that the writing and characters immediately pulled me in.

The world-building was rich and the Latinx-inspired universe was very refreshing within the YA genre. I enjoyed the little Spanish phrases plastered about in the text, seamlessly switching between languages, as well as the non-white cast.

That is right, all of the characters are latinx! The premise for both main characters is what initially drew me in.

The concept of a face-stealing thief is very original. Her past abuse and trauma has resulted in her never wanting to look like herself again, which adds such a great layer to the character of Finn.

I also like how versatile and dynamic she's portrayed. The way in which her confusion between the affection she seems to feel for Alfie and her usual apathetic side seems to conflict, and how she switches between 'Prince' and Alfie's name supplies yet another interesting tier.

In addition, I also really liked Alfie as a character, which for me, isn't very surprising considering we know I have a thing for princes.

Alfie's grief for his brother, and the issues he has with magic really made the character feel alive. Also, I've seen a lot of ADSOM comparisons in previous reviews, but I feel that comparing books often sells them short, in the sense that essentially they are all their own universes and characters!

Additionally, it was refreshing to see the relationship between the two develop not too quickly.

I've read a lot of fantasy debuts this year that featured a rapidly growing relationship sometime too quickly. And, while that's not so much of a turn-off for me when it comes to books, I prefer the slowburn Motayne has going on between her characters!

In the end, the characters and their interactions ended up being what made the book so enjoyable for me. The fact the villain seems to have a close personal connection to the protagonist added that extra bit of dramatics, and made the villain a lot more interesting to read about.

I find myself often bored when YA fantasy includes a very black-and-white two-dimensional villain, and while Ignacio seems to still be portrayed as pure evil, the fact that Finn has a connection to him made the stakes higher for readers of the story.

The plot in itself was interesting and I see where the writer wants to go. However, it sets up for a climax that unfortunately doesn't succeed when it comes to the height of its impact in this first book.

The climactic events are resolved rather quickly, which was kind of a shame because, as a reader, you're anticipating more than you're essentially getting.

Although, aside from this fact, the pacing of the book didn't feel either too rushed or too slow, and overall provided a very enjoyable reading experience.

Motayne, then, has definitely captured my attention with these characters when it comes to future books in the series. The characters, setting and universe all promise great things for the sequel that is inevitably coming soon!

View 1 comment. Nocturna revolves around Prince Alfehr Alfie , who has become crown prince after his brothers disappearance, and Finn, a shapeshifting thief.

When an ancient evil threatens to destroy the Kingdom, they must band together to fight it. I feel like Nocturna had promise in its premise, but the execution left much to be desired.

The writing was overly descriptive writing without saying much, the world-building took a backseat, and the characters felt very superficial.

While I liked the Latin America Nocturna revolves around Prince Alfehr Alfie , who has become crown prince after his brothers disappearance, and Finn, a shapeshifting thief.

I have seen other people comparing this to A Darker Shade of Magic, and while I can see some parallels, Schwab's writing is far superior.

It really excited me to read that we'd get a fantasy world inspired by a rarely seen culture.

And come one The only thing I remembered what that it was Latinx!! Right aw Check out more reviews Perspective of a Writer Right away I was captured by Prince Alfehr's passionate desire to save his brother.

This totally captured me!! How would he obtain the magic he needed?! And when we met Finn I wondered how she fit in How would being able to change her face help the prince find his brother?!

I was so excited for Alfie to find this big brother and be his rescuer Yeah well that was all just a gimmick.

Turns out the story is really about this face changing thief and the mess she gets into by being greedy! So a little suspicious I reluctantly settle back to follow her on the job And its all trouble of her own making.

This kind of story makes me really mad. Not because these two are being true to their age but because I don't believe that teenagers suddenly overnight the book only covers a couple days do what's right when before they were verging on morally grey and actually professing to be a serial murderer!

It feels like a story crafted because the author knows what readers like to read about. The plot smacks of things arising because of contrivance rather than from the character's fears and motivations.

My Experience As we get to know Finn I really appreciated that the Prince for all his soft ways gave as good as he got from her.

I really appreciated that Motayne tried to flip the typical tropes on their head. And I found the magic system super intriguing.

It had nothing really to do with the story contained in Nocturna. It was incidental back history that was presented as if it had bearing on the plot.

This really annoyed me. I signed up for one book and got a totally different one!! And at this point I really started to recognize the story.

It's really an odd feeling. I don't make connections between different books easily but I started to feel like I've read this story before.

The world went totally flat and felt like any other generic fantasy world. I wouldn't have minded the similarities so much if Nocturna really gave me a flavor of Latin culture.

The one piece of culture that I could see is the story of Sombra. I did appreciate how it related to events and how the villain arose from it.

I do wish that the plot against the royal family would have tied into present circumstances better. She was my favorite character!! I would have really loved to read her POV too.

She made the end not such a sour taste in my mouth because I totally related to her teenage angst and redemption. It's gorgeous, authentic and gives the flavor of what a Latinx world should feel like.

I liked a lot! The title though became very confusing for me. It references a state the world would fall into if certain criteria are met Except that criteria isn't met in Nocturna So uhhhh why the name?!

It's just odd to me. And was rather anti-climatic as a result. Why you may enjoy Nocturna despite its flaws?

They make seriously dumb mistakes and don't think about the consequences at all. As a teen I actually thought about the costs and benefits of my actions so I don't relate well to this kind of selfish stupidity.

But real teens very well could understand and make the same choices. The action was non-stop though! The pacing was just so speedy.

They'd get into trouble but slip right out of it. Never once did the Prince think to go to his teacher who had handled this trouble before.

His reasoning though does fit the stupid teen mold so I went with it. Oddly this reads as a standalone! Just like the story that it reminds me of Nocturna ends without a cliffhanger.

Their plan has a few hiccups but for the most part is executed flawlessly. I did feel like this hate to love romance felt a little more organic between our Prince and thief.

It isn't my favorite OTP but I did feel like the feelings between them developed over time and not suddenly. While the face changing felt a bit of a contrivance just to get Finn into trouble the Prince's magic was really neat.

I loved how he could see magic through its colors and adapt to anything because of that knowledge.

I totally don't regret reading Nocturna just to have experienced it. Sure Nocturna reminds me of another fantasy I've read, and you too may find a lot of parallels, but it is full of action, daring-do and romance.

I'm interested to see where the A Forgery of Magic series goes in the next book. But please Will we finally get back to the brother?!

It has not influenced my opinions. See my special perspective at the bottom of my reviews under the typewriter Please like this review if you enjoyed it!

Jul 29, Renee Godding rated it it was ok Shelves: series , releases. This was very very standard tropish YA fantasy and I was a little disappointed.

Nothing quite wrong with it but nothing special either That could pretty much be my 2. That could pretty much be my one sentence review of this book unfortunately.

We follow our two magically inclined protagonists, a face-shifting thief and a prince with the ability to create and travel through portals, on their quest to rebind an ancient magic that wreaking havoc on the kingdom.

Add in a Latinex setting, a one dimensional villain, and a lot of elements from different YA books and you get Nocturna.

Schwab, as the similarities are just very hard to overlook. Other influences seem to include The Grisha verse by Leigh Bardugo mainly in the magic system, as well as the heist-parts , Harry Potter the direct lifting of the vanishing cloak , and some other very well known YA series in lesser parts.

If you just want a new YA-fantasy, especially with a summery setting to entertain you over the summer break, this is a fine choice. I've been emotionally destroyed by the softest boy and the baddest girl to ever grace this earth.

This review originally appeared on Happy Indulgence Books. Check it out for more reviews! As someone who loves fantasy and diverse reads, the premise of Nocturna really interested me: a Latinx inspired world, a faceless thief and a prince with dark magic.

I was definitely intrigued and really keen to pick this up for The Name of the Book club. The beginning of the book starts with a bang, as we first meet Finn, the faceless thief who can mould her face into anyone else's and whose goal is to break This review originally appeared on Happy Indulgence Books.

The beginning of the book starts with a bang, as we first meet Finn, the faceless thief who can mould her face into anyone else's and whose goal is to break into the palace to steal an invisible cloak.

She's wiley, snarky and street smart and definitely someone we could root for. There's also the crown Prince Alfehr aka.

Alfie , who is grieving the recent loss of his brother. With a dragon talisman on his body and magic that he's only coming to terms with, I was definitely curious about his story.

I liked the Latinx inspired elements in the story, as the Castellan throne rose up after the Englassan rule, but there wasn't too much more world-building past this point aside from the food, fashion and Spanish phrases thrown in here and there.

I know it's not the purpose of an ownvoices author to educate about their culture, but it honestly felt like it was barely there throughout the story and could've been fleshed out a lot more.

While the banter between the two characters was definitely my favourite part of the story, there were one too many plot conveniences that limited my enjoyment for the rest of the book.

Trigger warnings: parental abuse, blood and gore, torture I received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Mar 20, Danielle rated it did not like it. Granted, it's only March, but even if another book displaces this as my most despised of , it will remain amongst the top three at the very least.

Basically, this book is just a Latinx , poorly written copy of the far superior A Darker Shade of Magic. Seriously, Finn is basically Lila Bard, Alfehr is a whiny amalgamation of Kell and Rhy, and Alfehr uses 'magic doors' to get through to different parts of the world.

How Motayne has managed to get this published is beyond me, and I wouldn't be surprised to see a legal battle on her horizon for an infringement of V.

Schwab's copyright. I actually got so annoyed that I flipped through, just to see how it ended. And considerign the amount of caps used in this review, I think it's time for me to end it.

If I keep going, it will basically be a furious rant in caps with me just going "Why? Oh tell me Why!?

Recommend: Noone. Not a soul. Read A Darker Shade of Magic instead. And if you don't then you're a damned fool.

Age: I don't even care. It's YA. Make your own bloody decision. Warnings: This is seriously beyond me now.

If you've read this far, I apologise, but maybe ask someone else these questions. Note: I received this ARC for review purposes only.

Start your review of Nocturna A Forgery of Magic 1. Oct 27, Teodora rated it it was ok Shelves: ya , releases , on-app , fantasy.

The main reason for my affirmation: I DNF-ed this. The ones who have already read that know what I mean.

Nocturna is my first DNF of the year. I am truly sorry to say that. At first, I thought it had so much potential, I really wanted it to be good.

I was making myself think that it will be good and I am going to like it. To imagine how exactly I felt, picture me as a cute little girl with long braids and an airy skirt jumping up and down with a basket in my hand, ready to pick some flowers and berries.

I am even whistling. After a while, I stop: I think I see the flowers in the meadow! Oh, happiness! But, when I am so close to them, suddenly from nowhere a huge fence erects, standing between me and the beautiful flowers I want to pick up.

I want to climb up the fence, but I see it is electrified. And also a storm is coming up so I might very well go home.

It is not worth it. This is exactly how I felt after reading not even half of it. I thought the action was very slow.

It felt a bit "in the tree" as we like to say in Romanian. Somehow it felt unfinished. And also, I found the chapters agonisingly long.

Maybe at this part, I felt the feeling of the whole plot trying. Trying to go somewhere, to do something. Fighting to go better. But it felt too much as a struggle and it made the reading a bit uncomfortable for me!

Even the characters seemed to struggle too much to find their own personalities. And this is not quite okay, even though I know this is a YA Fantasy book and the characters tend to have changes of personalities every 10 pages.

It is okay to change the personality throughout the book but at least set the right basis for it. It breaks my heart to say this so, but it is true.

The best thing about this though? It actually helped me gain a bit of vocabulary in Spanish so for that I will totally give out an extra star.

It was a really well-thought thing to blend the Spanish words in or at least this is coming from the trashy language learner inside of me.

Ignorance kills, children! My only problem now is: if Spanish speakers wanted to read this book in Spanish without knowing the words for magic are said, originally, in Spanish, would anyone notice the aspect of Spanish-words-used-in-the-book as I did me, a non-native Spanish speaker?

I had hoped to love this book. That it was almost too good to be true. Some of you may or may not know this about me, but I am Dominican.

I was born and partially raised in The Dominican Republic, a small, Spanish speaking island in the Carribean, where the sun always shines and the beaches are always blue.

So, to hear that an author w I had hoped to love this book. So, to hear that an author was going to write a fantasy novel based on her Dominican heritage I was nothing if not completely on board.

So, you can only imagine how disappointed I was when this book was only superficially Latinx and could have otherwise been set in any generic European-esque kingdom.

The book talked about some Hispanic foods: sweet plantains, which I love, the adobo seasoned chicken, and some other things.

That said, there has been an overwhelming amount of people comparing this book to A Darker Shade of Magic by V.

Schwab, to the point that they claim that Nocturna is nothing more than a blatant rip-off. And trust me, there are many similarities in plot, characterization, magic, and even the ending.

But, as I mentioned, there is no new thing under the sun. But alas, it did not. The writing in this book is pretty decent. The characters are alright.

I found that their motivations shifted rather quickly though. It started out as being about one thing, mostly Alfie finding his brother, but then that takes a back seat and the plot became about something else.

Overall, I liked that this was a Latinx fantasy, or that it tried to be. Latin American culture is extremely diverse. Now I want to see some Latin American fantasy take the stage.

So yeah, there you have it. Oh, well. All opinions are my own. View all 19 comments. Jan 01, Cindy Pham rated it liked it.

I really wanted to like this book because I love the ideas behind it: a Latinx-inspired fantasy, the propio magic system, an adventure between two unlikely allies, a match between a soft boi prince and a tough female thief, etc.

Unfortunately, I found the writing to be trite and generic, and the characters especially Alfie acted stupidly juvenile for the sake of conflict.

Apr 16, Jessica McKenna rated it did not like it. Any unabashedly good reviews of this book must be from people who either have never read V.

Schwab's Shades of Magic Trilogy, or who do not care when a book's entire plot is lifted from another source. Several sources, in fact. Because beyond the egregious ripping-off of Schwab's trilogy, even the tiny, different details are often easily traceable back to other sources, from which they have just as blatantly been stolen and cobbled.

I've been annoyed at books before for stealing basic plot from Any unabashedly good reviews of this book must be from people who either have never read V.

I've been annoyed at books before for stealing basic plot from popular series. There were dozens of teen vampire books that flooded bookshelves after Twilight , and after the Harry Potter series there were yet more dozens of magic school books.

But those books, while sometimes coming too obviously close to the line, for the most part were "inspired" by the worlds they copped from.

The plot as a whole tended to be new, or the characters were different, or the magic system had been very changed, or the whole thematic point of the book had been shifted.

Nocturna not only steps right up to that line, it barrels across it in ways that are just unforgivable. I have never read a book that stole so much from its source material.

It's not just that the magic system is eerily similar, except for a few teensy tweaks. It's not just that the dark magic villain comes to power in exactly the same way, moves through human hosts in exactly the same way, and is defeated in exactly the same way.

And it's not just that the thematic points of the book are overwhelmingly the same. It is all of these and much more.

And it's absolutely deliberate. I spent over half the book dreaming of having a PDF version where I could search-and-find and count all of the many , many times this novel uses the phrase "shades.

But yet couldn't, apparently, be bothered to even mention that series in her acknowledgements I checked, not that I expected her really to admit it.

As for the rest of it? The stuff that's not copped from Shades of Magic? Well, you have a prison breakout scene that could be straight out of a Bardugo book.

You also have a relationship between two main characters that is almost exactly Jessica Jones and Kilgrave. Other than that, there's not much different to be honest.

And it got to the point where those things that were, I did not trust to be unique from Motayne's mind either.

If I didn't recognize it immediately from another person's work, I started assuming it must just be because I hadn't read the work it was stolen from yet.

It's that bad. And the worst, truly the worst, part of all of this is Despite lifting things from so many sources, not perfect ones of course but ones that nevertheless got the literary job done This book was legitimately terrible.

The character motivations constantly shifted for no reason: "I want to find my brother who maybe isn't dead, but then again I guess he's dead and I never have to think about him again womp;" "I want my daughter to be dead for what she did to me but then I guess I want her to be alive and love me again but then I guess I want her dead but maybe also alive.

The plot was also an incoherent mess. The main characters all had what I can only describe as a Harry Potter complex - the need to do everything by themselves, because they were the only ones who could stop the evil!

The whole thing took place over what actually seemed to be days, and felt that quick, too, as the characters mostly just jumped from plot-contrived scene to plot-contrived scene.

Nothing felt earned, nothing felt connected, and by the end I was literally rolling my eyes as I read it because I could not believe that the reader could be expected to actually believe anything that was happening or care.

At the beginning of this book, I was fine with it. It was refreshing to see a YA fantasy world from a Latinx author, based on her Dominican heritage.

It was quite cool to have the magic system work with Spanish words, instead of the typical Latin. It was clearly similar to Shades of Magic, but wasn't a blatant ripoff.

But by the middle, everything I had liked was gone. The world-building becomes shoddy at best, with mentions of sangria and sugarcane really the only things that separate it from any other typical fantasy world.

By the end of the book, the references to these actually seemed out of place and jarring, that's how directly like Shades of Magic it had become.

The Spanish continues throughout, which is fine, but without a rich culture to back it up, it starts to feel more like a gimmick than anything else.

The back of my ARC has a picture of Motayne, smiling. When I turned to look at it, that's when I really knew how much this book angered me.

Because all I could think was, You haven't earned the right to smile. This isn't your book. It's other people's books. And I hope you don't earn a cent more for it.

Kirkus Reviews has already commented that getting a second book out of this world will be difficult, because of the lack of culture and world-building.

But I think I can tell you exactly how Motayne is going to pull out a second book. And a third. There's going to be a magic tournament.

And then the dark magic is going to come back from the void. Maybe after, they'll all go to Red London for drinks. View all 15 comments.

It's hard for me to write this review because I really wanted to love this book and I was so excited to have a Fantasy book with an all Latinx cast.

Sadly, this book has one big issue that I need to talk about. This book is about a prince and a thief in a magical world.

The prince can travel from one place to another by making basically any wall a door. The thief steals something from the prince and they meet.

The prince's cousin who's like a brother to him gets poisoned and in order to save him, the prince uses the help of black magic that's been locked away for years.

The black magic gets unleashed and roams through the city, leaving destruction in its wake. It uses people as vessels, making their veins black and raised, but some are too weak and simply turn to dust.

There's a piece of the black magic that the prince and the thief keep and it helps the prince bring the thief through one of his doorways, even though he usually can only go alone.

That piece also wears the prince out because it tempts him to use it. Does this sound familiar?

If it doesn't, you probably haven't read the Shades of Magic trilogy by V. I hate to be that person but as someone who loves V. Schwab and the trilogy and is also know for that, it would feel wrong for me to not point these similarities out.

I know that there's rarely any truly unique books out there anymore. But the fact that there's so many matching things in both, does seem weird.

And it's not only the plot but also the characters, the way they behave and the dynamics between them. While Alfie's brother, who was supposed to be King, has died prior to this story, his cousin, who, as I said above, is like a brother to Alfie, reads a lot like Rhy.

And while Alfie did remind me off Kell often times the thing that really rubbed me the wrong way, is the fact that Finn, the thief, IS Lila Bard.

Like let's just take a look at some of these quotes. That creepy thing owes me a debt for that, and I always get what I'm owed.

I'm not going to waste it on him,' she said, her mouth curling into a snarl around that word. She tossed him a smirk that almost covered the turmoil churning beneath it.

Yet now, she wanted nothing more than to stay. She felt more freedom in this moment than all her years combined.

Freedom, she was coming to understand, could be found in a person instead of a place. She is in general scared of staying too long in one place, she is scared of commitment and getting attached to other people.

This also shows in her dynamic with Alfie, where both clearly like each other a lot but don't wanna admit it. And the book ends with Finn leaving on a ship.

It's just all a tad too close. And again, I hate doing this. I don't want to call this book out like this but there is absolutely no way to unsee the similarities.

So here I am, just putting out what I personally observed. In the beginning I still enjoyed this book regardless but when there were more and more similarities, I started disliking this book more and more as well.

On top of that I thought the second half was incredibly boring, funnily exactly when it started going into a different direction plot wise.

So I'm sure this book will work for some people. I didn't dislike it because it is bad but because I think it is absolutely too close to my favourite trilogy of all time.

It feels uncomfortable to read this book with all its similarities but also in comparison, it just cannot hold up at all.

The former, Finn Voy, seeks to escape the dark shadow dominating her past but finds herself with a new foe to duel with, when she aligns her plight with the Prince's.

Prince Alfehr is not concerned with ruling the kingdom but only in seeking t A face-shifting thief, who steals more than just food and coin to survive but also the faces of those she meets, and a prince, with a magical doorknob to lead him directly to wherever he wants in the world, combine in an unprecedented interweaving of fates.

Prince Alfehr is not concerned with ruling the kingdom but only in seeking the brother who was stolen from him and now considered dead.

He disbelieves these rumours and searches for answers in dark and forgotten magic. But instead of finding a brother returned he unwittingly unleashes an ancient magic, which seeks to take the kingdom and his people for its own.

This magic system is the most inventive and unique I have experienced for such a long time.

The initial portion was a little dense, because of this, but Motayne ensured her readers were provided a proper basis in which to understand this complex system, before the action truly started.

I also loved both central characters. They were disparate in personality but both were aligned in the instant adoration I felt for them.

Finn is an unapologetic badass whilst Alfie is a precious little cinnamon roll, and seeing these polar opposites interact provided some hilarious incidents that nicely offset the surrounding tension.

Their dialogue was sarcastic as they continually sought to test their wits against each other and both proved stubborn and spiteful, at first.

These feelings slowly thawed, as the novel progressed, and this was one of the best instances of enemies to lovers I have seen documented.

The only slight mar in this otherwise stellar read was the slightly stodgy pace, I have already mentioned. However, the unique magic system, intriguing world, and authentic characters all made this undoubtedly one fantasy book to keep on your radar, for , and ensured Maya Motayne a future auto-buy author for me, from now on.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Finn is a shapeshifter, a thief and a trickster.

She steals faces, loosing herself amongst the crowds to keep one step ahead. When her plans align with that of a forlorn prince, who holds the power of moving between worlds, she sets her sights on a prize worth taking, but is the risk worth the consequences?

The world building is both complex and I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The descriptions of the Latino inspired culture also drew me right into the story, and I could almost imagine myself walking the colourful, magical streets, and eating the wonderful Hispanic foods depicted.

If anything, I would have appreciated more Latin flavours scattered throughout the book to really elevate this to the next level.

It tried to be different. I also found the two central characters, Finn and Alfie, likeable and fun. This brings me onto my main point, which is the story itself.

Aside from the Latino elements, the plot is a rehash of a lot of other YA novels that have done the rounds in the last couple of years.

This meant that at times I really struggled through the plot because I knew what was going to happen before it did.

Nothing is particularly memorable either, and I just ended up feeling very underwhelmed at the wasted potential. Imagine my delight when I received this book in one of my April subscription boxes and this gorgeous special edition no less!

Of course I had to immediately dive into this book read the full review on my blog : here! Of course I had to immediately dive into this book!

What is Nocturna about? Set in a Latinx-inspired world, Nocturna centers around professional thief, Finn Voy, who uses magic to take on many faces but her own.

But, when she is caught by a mobster, and the only way out is a heist of something valuable in the Castellan palace, she is faced with the danger of losing her magic forever.

Finn teams up with prince Alfie, who is grieving the loss of his brother, and is desperately trying to find a way to get him back.

However, the two of them accidentally unleash a horrific power, and, in order to contain it, Finn and Alfie are forced to work together.

Will this unlikely alliance work? Reading Nocturna was such a pleasant experience: I found that the writing and characters immediately pulled me in.

The world-building was rich and the Latinx-inspired universe was very refreshing within the YA genre. I enjoyed the little Spanish phrases plastered about in the text, seamlessly switching between languages, as well as the non-white cast.

That is right, all of the characters are latinx! The premise for both main characters is what initially drew me in. The concept of a face-stealing thief is very original.

Her past abuse and trauma has resulted in her never wanting to look like herself again, which adds such a great layer to the character of Finn.

I also like how versatile and dynamic she's portrayed. The way in which her confusion between the affection she seems to feel for Alfie and her usual apathetic side seems to conflict, and how she switches between 'Prince' and Alfie's name supplies yet another interesting tier.

In addition, I also really liked Alfie as a character, which for me, isn't very surprising considering we know I have a thing for princes.

Alfie's grief for his brother, and the issues he has with magic really made the character feel alive. Also, I've seen a lot of ADSOM comparisons in previous reviews, but I feel that comparing books often sells them short, in the sense that essentially they are all their own universes and characters!

Additionally, it was refreshing to see the relationship between the two develop not too quickly. I've read a lot of fantasy debuts this year that featured a rapidly growing relationship sometime too quickly.

And, while that's not so much of a turn-off for me when it comes to books, I prefer the slowburn Motayne has going on between her characters!

In the end, the characters and their interactions ended up being what made the book so enjoyable for me.

The fact the villain seems to have a close personal connection to the protagonist added that extra bit of dramatics, and made the villain a lot more interesting to read about.

I find myself often bored when YA fantasy includes a very black-and-white two-dimensional villain, and while Ignacio seems to still be portrayed as pure evil, the fact that Finn has a connection to him made the stakes higher for readers of the story.

The plot in itself was interesting and I see where the writer wants to go. However, it sets up for a climax that unfortunately doesn't succeed when it comes to the height of its impact in this first book.

The climactic events are resolved rather quickly, which was kind of a shame because, as a reader, you're anticipating more than you're essentially getting.

Although, aside from this fact, the pacing of the book didn't feel either too rushed or too slow, and overall provided a very enjoyable reading experience.

Motayne, then, has definitely captured my attention with these characters when it comes to future books in the series.

The characters, setting and universe all promise great things for the sequel that is inevitably coming soon! View 1 comment.

Nocturna revolves around Prince Alfehr Alfie , who has become crown prince after his brothers disappearance, and Finn, a shapeshifting thief.

When an ancient evil threatens to destroy the Kingdom, they must band together to fight it. I feel like Nocturna had promise in its premise, but the execution left much to be desired.

The writing was overly descriptive writing without saying much, the world-building took a backseat, and the characters felt very superficial.

While I liked the Latin America Nocturna revolves around Prince Alfehr Alfie , who has become crown prince after his brothers disappearance, and Finn, a shapeshifting thief.

I have seen other people comparing this to A Darker Shade of Magic, and while I can see some parallels, Schwab's writing is far superior.
