I was really looking forward to reading this after Mistwood, but Nightspell lacked a lot of things. The only thing linking these two books together is one character, and you would never know that if you skipped Mistwood and read Nightspell. Nightspell lacked romance, which for me, is a big thing. I couldn't connect with the characters. I struggled through this book, hoping for a salvation that never came. I suggest skipping this book in the series. Read Mistwood and continue on with your life, you wouldn't be missing much. Harsh, but true.

The "heroine" is an ignorant, unpleasant brat. The author plainly hated Varis, the only remotely sympathetic character. I hated this book.

(1st review I accidently posted my Mistwood review) This was not the greatest book I've read but it kept me reading from cover to cover to see what would happen. Very thought provoking storyline. Not thrilling but kind of a letdown after how good Mistwood was.

After enjoying Mistwood and Isabel and Rokan's story so much, I found myself easily anticipating the release of Nightspell. While I understood this was merely a companion novel and not attached to Mistwood as a continuation or sequel, I must admit that I was slightly dissapointed. Darri just didn't match up to Cypess' previous heroine in my opinion. I found myself encouraging her, giving her multiple chances to live up to my expectations, but she seemed to fall somewhat short. Ghostland was unique and intriguing, but sinec the main character and narrator hated it so much, I found it hard to be overly enchanted with it myself. Cypess does know how to weave together moral dilemas without a doubt. She kept me questioning who were the "bad" guys really? And readers are constantly put in situations where they must decide what is right and wrong? Who gets to make those distinctions and who decides who must pay for the consequences of the actions taken? Cypess had my thoughts and emotions tangled from start to finish and while I may have enjoyed Mistwood more, Nightspell was still an entertaining and worthwhile read.

Many reviews here already summarize what the story is about. Being a writer myself, I could go at length on Nightspell's excellent worldbuilding and plot structure. Instead, I'm going to offer two reader reactions. My daughter picked up Nightspell after having thoroughly enjoyed Mistwood by the same author. Her initial reaction was less enthusiastic, apparently because it had been easier for her to identify with the main character in Mistwood right from the beginning. So the first quarter of the book went along slowly. But then, she got hooked and finished the last three quarters in a single all-night reading session. She slept through the next day, waking up toward the evening (she's on vacation), in a pattern that made me ask her if she was going to emigrate to Ghostland. More recently, I had a dream of visiting my daughter's college dormitory as a ghost. For some reason, her roommate was totally freaked out. I regret not having enough presence of mind (hey, I was dreaming!) to tell her that it was perfectly normal and that she should go read Nightspell.
