Inhaltsangabe zu „Eternal Night (The Fates of Betrayal Book 1)“ von Alayna Ravenwood

A dark secret lies in her past. A magical world exists just out of reach. A hidden destiny awaits her. After a tragic murder and year of lost memories, Anna finds her world shrouded in mystery. Only the elusive Blake seems to have any answers, but pursuing his knowledge takes Anna down a dangerous path. As she begins to unlock pieces of the puzzle, she gets closer and closer to wanting someone she can’t have while unlocking a dormant power she isn’t sure she can control. Nightfall Academy is only the beginning of a world of deceit, lust, and vengeance. Learning you are part of an ancient race of mages and falling for a dark prince are nothing compared to what Anna's future holds. If she can handle the power in her blood, she may reunite a lost realm with its past. And our world could get caught in the crossfire.

One needs to get over a lot of confusion in the beginning, but then it turns aut to be quite an intriguing read with many mysteries,

    „Eternal Night“ has been a rollercoaster ride for me of confusing parts and ones that thrilled me. The book starts with a short prologue which has made me very curious about the things to come. I instantly wanted to find out who it was that was chasing poor Anna, who killed her mum and why. Soon after we come to know that Anna has a memory gap of an entire year, starting right after the day she has lost her mother in such a brutal way. She only remembers the initials of a special school her cousin Brook is attending, Nightfall Academy. Very suspicious, but the only hint she has got. I was very excited then because I really like mysteries, especially when there is the opportunity to do some investigation of my own while reading. And I certainly wasn’t disappointed in that matter. There is plenty of opportunity there because it is quite difficult to decipher the single figure’s motives, to see who is evil and who is not and of course there is the vast space in between the two extremes which can mostly be found in Blake. The characters in general were very fascinating even though I didn’t like them all, understandably. But that has only to do with simple antipathy and not with the author lacking in the creating complex characters department. That is something she is actually quite good at. I like that none of them is perfect because which human being really is? Now to the confusing bits. In the beginning the world of the mages can be very puzzling. There are the royals with all their princes and such and at first I didn’t quite get who was related to who and to which city they belonged. And then there were the blood mages, too, that had to fit into the whole picture as well. You will have to be patient here. The little snippets of information can be frustrating but I can tell you that it is worth it to struggle your way through the confusing parts. Most of it will make sense in the end. The complexity of the story as a whole has impressed me greatly. There still are some mysteries waiting to be solved and of course I want to know how the lovestory between Blake and Anna is going to develop. I want to believe that there is hope for them. They deserve to be happy after all the cruel things that already happened to them and still might. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. As this story appeared to me as a mixture of Harry Potter and Vampire Academy with a good helping of royalty, I would recommend this book to those people who enjoyed the aforementioned books.
