Guys, we’re already a little bit in love with Finn and Prince Alfie, and we. can’t. wait. for you to meet them. Finn’s struggles with her past and her fearsome (and pretty handy, tbh) powers? Alfie’s fierce dedication to bringing his brother back from the dead? These two are everything we want in our high fantasy power duo AND MORE!
Nocturna is out in a few short weeks, but today, we’re gracing you with an *epic* book trailer. We promise you’ll be as obsessed as us once you take a look.

Nocturna | Official Book Trailer
Let’s take a closer look at this Nocturna trailer!
Ooh, pretty buildings with confetti and some sort of street party that we’re hella into!
…hold up, is that FIRE!?! Yep, even more into it!
Okay, okay, something DEFINITELY is about to go down…
The MOSAIC!!! This cover is to die for!
To Finn Voy, magic is two things: a knife to hold under the chin 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 Finn 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.
After the murder of his older brother, Prince Alfehr is first in line for the Castallan throne. But Alfie can’t help but feel that he will never live up to his brother’s legacy. Riddled with grief, Alfie is obsessed with finding a way to bring his brother back, even if it means dabbling in forbidden magic.
But when Finn and Alfie’s fates collide, they accidentally unlock a terrible, ancient power—which, if not contained, will devour the world.
