Review: Thorn Jack By: Katherine Harbour

Thorn Jack (Night and Nothing, #1)Thorn Jack by Katherine Harbour
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, if I could give this book more stars I would! This book was amazing, I could not believe that this was the author's first novel. The imagery, the vivid way that she wrote brought the characters, the place of Fair Hollow to life, I was enveloped by this book and I sank in - I did not want to leave. This book is a keeper to explore at least once a year.
There are the stories, those beings, the creatures that come from Nothing and Night. Very few know about them, know where they live, how they behave. Serafina Sullivan has come to Fair Hollow with her father after the loss of her sister to live in her ancestor's home. A new start filled with mystery, filled with the past, filled with a strange guy that is drawn to her as much as she is to him. Jack has no heart, at least he didn't, now he bleeds. There is danger everywhere, even 'family' - they are even more dangerous then anyone's imagination.
Filled with adventure, fantasy, fairy and folk tale/lore, and a splash of romance this is an amazing combination. I loved this book, even found I was dreaming about it. Looking for something to escape in, something perfect for autumn, perfect to crawl into a chair with - this is the book. I hope that the author is working on more, because I can not wait!
