Review: Nocturnal by Chelsea M. Cameron
Seventeen-year-old Ava-Claire Sullivan’s mother is dying. Perhaps it’s no surprise, then, that her greatest solace comes from someone who’s already dead.
Peter Hart saves her one night in a graveyard from an attacker just as strange as he is, and now Ava can’t stop thinking about him. She wants to see him again – even after he warns her he’s dangerous, and she begins to realize what he is. Her best friends don’t know anything about death, but Peter does, intimately. He’s waiting for her the next night she comes to the cemetery, and the next…
But their growing bond comes up against a promise Peter made a long time ago, a promise that could destroy them both. Now Ava has to decide just what she’s willing to give up to hold onto the one thing that could last forever.
Taking a trip back to the YA category this week with this read and it was totally worth it! I absolutely adored this book, I have been reading NA for a while now and it was nice to go back to my paranormal/YA roots. Where do I even begin?
Ava is just a mess but she is a mess I can totally relate to. I too was that girl who pretends for her friends at school and who would act completely different then what they actually felt. In addition I love cemeteries and I think it made me love Ava all the more because I felt like we were one in the same.
Then Peter, oh I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book because Peter is a mystery I want to unsolve. This first book left me satisfied but craving more! There were so many unanswered questions but also moments where I was smiling along with Ava and moments when I was questioning what the characters were doing and what the heck was going on?
Chelsea M. Cameron has that way with her writings, she really gets into the character’s head and you feel and see the world through their eyes. I love that about her books and I especially loved it in Nocturnal. The writing and plot was very refreshing and a nice change of pace. I like how this isn’t your typical paranormal book, it is so much more then that. Its a story that I can’t wait to continue so go out a check this book out for yourself! You won’t be disappointed.
It is always darkest before the dawn.
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
