Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres to read, but I do sometimes feel that many of those novels have a World War II setting, which can lead to some reader burnout on my end. I can say Our Darkest Night was a bright light. While at first glance, it might have some similarities to other novels in that genre, Our Darkest Night brought a whole new perspective. The characters leapt from the page and I could sense the danger and peril they faced. I was drawn back to this book time after time and was so invested in the future of both Nina and Nico. For me, a story of resilience and courage through adversity was exactly what I needed right now.
I received this book courtesy of the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
