New Night (Gothic, #2)New Night by Fiona van Dahl
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fascinating re-entry into the hell-hole town and area around Gothic.

With the first novel, we got a very creative horror that was half alien-invasion with portals to another world and half body-horror. With this next novel, we've got a lot more of the same going on, but this time with a much more complicated story and a much freer hand with the portals.

What got me the most was the way the aliens and the humans made a third race so seamlessly and wonderfully so, easily slipping into new roles that would generally freak normal folks out.

But is this a natural progression? Or is this just a social evolution of man and monsters? Is there a difference? It's so easy to love this kind of exploration, and the horror is pitch perfect. :)

Lots of action, lots of great description, and the pace is one to die for. I'm really glad that I'm getting to read these! Thanks to the author for the ARC! It's much appreciated, and the timing was absolutely perfect for Halloween! :)
