Nocturna – Maya Motayne Fans of A Darker Shade of Magic will love this, mainly because there are a lot of similarities. However, there are some vital differences between the two that make them amazing books in their own way. My favorite part of this book was the dynamics between the characters. It was very fun and made the sweet parts even sweeter. I also loved how the culture played a part in the novel. It was relatable and I especially loved it as a Hispanic woman. The adventure, magic, and friendship were amazing and drew the reader into the book. Once you start reading, you won’t be able to stop. The romance was subtle until the end, but it wasn’t my favorite part of this book. Overall, the book was fantastic and everyone should read it. 4⭐️/5⭐️ ••••• Do you like novels that are based on different cultures? I love them and think they’re so unique! ••••• #book #review #bookreview #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #nocturna #mayamotayne

9. Living for this aesthetic @bookish.hayden

View this post on Instagram

Are you looking for a stay-up-late-reading-because-you-can’t-put-the-book-down kind of book? Look no further because that’s Nocturna! Nocturna is a Latinx inspired fantasy novel, written by a Latinx author.  The magic language in this novel is Spanish, and the country that this book takes place in was a kingdom that was once taken over and completely changed by another country. The characters in this book were lovely, a soft spoken prince and a rough around the edges firecracker of a thief. Alfie and Finn are such good characters, and their relationship builds over the course of the novel and feels very natural. The world building in this novel is beautiful and incredible, I fell in love with San Cristòbal through the eyes of Alfie and Finn and the words of Maya Motayne. I’m so excited to continue this series, and read anything and everything that Maya Motayne writes. I had the pleasure of attending the Frenzy Events singing last weekend and got to meet the author and get my book signed, it was an incredible experience ❤️🖤

🔥Remember how I said I’d be posting about this one again with the finished copy??? Well here is the gorgeous cover of Nocturna by @mayam1745🔥 • Nocturna is a Latinx-inspired fantasy. Finn Voy, a faceshifter and thief, crosses paths with Prince Alfehr (Alfie) who is dealing with the sudden loss of his brother (and is now next in line to the Castallan throne). Alfie accidentally releases a dark magic loose in the kingdom, which threatens to throw the entire world into the darkness… Nocturna. The two must try to contain the dark magic before it can take over. • My only real critique of this one was that I felt like I needed a map… Well guess what was inside the cover, y’all?! Im so happy with this finished copy! • Thank you to @harpercollinsca @hccfrenzy for sending me an advance copy of this for review! • #bookreview #nocturna #mayamotayne #youngadultfantasy #youngadultbooks #youngadult #frenzypresents #fantasy #review #booklover #bookstagram #notjustaprettybook #spiveys📚club #riotgrams #bookshark @booksparks #epicreads #readinmay #2019reads #readin2019
