They stood out like shinning stars in the darkness surrounding them. I immediately liked Silas, he seems smart, and sweet and just good. Lily took me awhile longer to warm up to. I felt like we never quite got beyond their exteriors. There were bits and pieces there, but I would have adored more. One more dimension to these characters could have, in my mind, brought this story up to 5 stars.
The great thing is, this is only the first book in the series, so there is a lot of potential there for everything to grow. I really look forward to seeing what the next installment holds! Lastly I have to say thank you to Houston, not only for this gifted copy, but also because my daughter is 12 years old, and you gave me a perfect book recommendation for her.

I know this seems rather small, but my picky, rambunctious girl is, much to my dismay, not an avid reader. It is very hard to find a book that can grasp her attention and hold it for the entirety of the story. I think Nightfall Gardens is perfect for her!
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. You are commenting using your WordPress. I mean, however and wherever we are, we must live as if we will never die.
III This earth will grow cold, a star among stars and one of the smallest, a gilded mote on blue velvet— I mean this , our great earth. This earth will grow cold one day, not like a block of ice or a dead cloud even but like an empty walnut it will roll along in pitch-black space.

You must grieve for this right now —you have to feel this sorrow now— for the world must be loved this much if you're going to say "I lived". Nazim Hikmet Some Advice to Those Who Will Serve Time in Prison If instead of being hanged by the neck you're thrown inside for not giving up hope in the world, your country, and people, if you do ten or fifteen years apart from the time you have left, you won't say, "Better I had swung from the end of a rope like a flag"-- you'll put your foot down and live. It may not be a pleasure exactly, but it's your solemn duty to live one more day to spite the enemy.
Part of you may live alone inside, like a stone at the bottom of a well.
Thank you for letting us know
But the other part must be so caught up in the flurry of the world that you shiver there inside when outside, at forty days' distance, a leaf moves. To wait for letters inside, to sing sad songs, or to lie awake all night staring at the ceiling is sweet but dangerous. Look at your face from shave to shave, forget your age, watch out for lice and for spring nights, and always remember to eat every last piece of bread-- also, don't forget to laugh heartily. And who knows, the woman you love may stop loving you.
Don't say it's no big thing: it's like the snapping of a green branch to the man inside.
NIGHTFALL GARDENS BY: ALLEN HOUSTON
To think of roses and gardens inside is bad, to think of seas and mountains is good. Read and write without rest, and I also advise weaving and making mirrors.
