Publisher's Summary

Fates collide and darkness is unleashed in this lush, own-voices Latin-inspired fantasy, perfect for fans of Tomi Adeyemi, Leigh Bardugo and V. E. Schwab.

Magic is everywhere and in everything.

To Finnian Voy, magic is two things: a knife to hold under the throat of anyone who crosses her and a disguise she shrugs on as easily as others pull on cloaks. As a talented faceshifter, it's been years since Finn has seen her own face, and that's exactly how she likes it. But when she gets caught by a powerful mobster, she's forced into an impossible mission: steal a legendary treasure from Castallan's royal palace or be stripped of her magic forever.

To Prince Alfehr magic is an escape but one that comes with a price. First in line for the throne after the disappearance of his older brother, Alfie is desperate to find him and bring him home, even if it means dabbling in forbidden magic.

And when Finn and Alfie's fates collide, they realise magic can be other things, too, and the type they accidentally release into the world is something neither expects or understands.

It's hungry.

I wish I liked this more...

I'd still give this a 2-2.5* despite my DNF... mostly because I can see the merit it has, and that it might appeal to other people. I LOVE the concept behind Nocturna! It's this beautiful Latinx world and it was beautifully described... I just didn't give a shit about the characters. They weren't even unlikable in the sense of being an unlikable character - they just held zero percent of my interest, and I couldn't care less what happens to them. I was listening to the audio book, so maybe one day I'll pick it up from the library and see if I have any extra progress. But until then *shrugs* oh well.
