A rich portrait of post-Victorian England, The Deepest Night seamlessly blends thrilling romance with riveting history and adventure—perfect for fans of Libba Bray and Lauren Kate.

It’s 1915, and sixteen-year-old Lora Jones is finishing up her first year as a charity student at Iverson, a prestigious, gothic boarding school on England’s southern coast. While she’s always felt different from everyone around her, now she finally knows why: She is a drákon, a rare, enchanted being with astonishing magical abilities.

As war hits Britain’s shores, and Lora reels from an unimaginable loss, she finds that her powers come with grave and dangerous responsibilities. At the request of Armand Louis, the darkly mysterious boy whose father owns Iverson, Lora will spend her summer at his lavish estate. To help the war effort—and to keep Lora by his side—Armand turns his home into a military hospital, where Lora will serve as a nurse. For Armand is inescapably drawn to her—bound to her by heart-deep secrets and a supernatural connection that runs thicker than blood.

Yet while Lora tries to sort out her own feelings toward Armand, fate offers an unexpected surprise. Lora discovers there is another drákon, a prisoner of war being held in Germany. And that only she, with her newly honed Gifts, will be able to rescue him.

With Armand, Lora will cross enemy lines on an incredible mission—one that could bond her to Armand forever, or irrevocably tear them apart.

Beautifully written, deeply romantic, and filled with daring adventure and magic, The Deepest Night is a mesmerizing novel of the enduring pull of destiny, and the eternal strength of love.
  I was in love with The Sweetest Dark, the first in this series, so reading the next was a must for me. I do not feel let down after reading this new chapter in the story like I am with so many others. 

I love the style with Abe writes. She paints the life of the British in WWI beautifully once again. We get to see more of all walks a life in throughout the course of the book.  And once again, I fell in love with all of it. 

I have to admit was not upset to see one of the characters go in last book. and I love the little sparks that are happening in this one. I can not wait to read how they unfold even more! Mandy or Armand is such a heart warming guy. He is noble, but he doesn't place himself above others and I really enjoy that of his character. He is a lot more serious in this book, but with everything that was handed to him the first, who wouldn't? He is still the brave, dashing, and ever surprising man that you grow to love in The Sweetest Dark though!

Lora struggles with mixed emotions in this one. She grows more and learns more about herself and what she is capable of. She is a very selfless character and so brave in her decisions. She always has the threat of having to return to where she has risen from held over her head, but she does not let that stop her. 

There is a lot more action in this sequel, and in my opinion it was an even more entertaining plot. I can't wait for another book to read to continue Lora and Armand's story! We were left with so much, and I can't wait to see how their futures unfold! If you haven't read The Sweetest Dark, check it out!
 If you have, don't be nervous about this follow up because it exceeded my expectations.
