This is an illustrated story of a little girl who is swept away on the eve of her birthday and the pictures are just beautiful! There is a story to read at the front and then the pages take you through her adventure. This is a coloring book that is interesting, tells a story and is just fun to look through! Colored pencils and gel pens both worked well for me. "I requested this book from Blogging for Books and volunteered to review with my honest opinion."

The Night Voyage: A Magical Journey and Coloring Book by Daria Song is the newest volume in a series of magical coloring books designs just for adults. This is beautifully detailed coloring book for made for all ages- specifically adults who want to explore their creativity with the therapeutic pastime of coloring. These beautiful scenic drawings in of themselves are a work of art. The beautiful binding and removable jacket can also be colored as well. This makes a great gift for yourself or a friend. The luxurious quality of this book, thick pages, and elaborate art, is unexpected considering its affordable retail price. Its an affordable luxury certain to brighten up anyone's day. Armed with a sharpened set of colored pencils, this book can become a personalized masterpiece to treasure and even pass down. Although it is marketed for readers of all ages, it is most suitable for teens and older due to the tiny detail. I do not feel a grade school-er would appreciate the fine detail of this book, and it would be a shame to destroy a beautiful book with scribble. This is a coloring project that takes time, perseverance and patience. I could imagine many readers who appreciate art will hesitate before making the first stroke with their pencils as well. One thing to keep in mind is the fine detail and repetition of tiny geometric shapes and designs that are a part of each picture. Some of these pages can take hours to complete- maybe more than the time allowed in one sitting. It takes patience. Be sure to have a pencil sharpener handy when starting this book. Don't bother with crayons or markers. The story line and theme is like a bedtime story. I feel as if this would also make a beautiful book if it was full color rather than a coloring book. I almost would have preferred this to be a traditional full color story than a coloring book. Even the storyline behind the inspiration for this book is relaxing and entertaining. I enjoy this artists coloring books as I am sure many readers out there will enjoy as well. For those who have Song's earlier coloring books, this is an essential volume to complete the collection. This coloring book will be certain to impress and to allow for hours of relaxation. As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Potter/TenSpeed/Harmony for the purpose of writing this review.

Opening THE NIGHT VOYAGE takes you on a magical journey whether you’re 10, 35, 50, 70 or older. Author and artist Daria Song creates a grand adventure where a young girl shares her birthday presents. The story is light-hearted and inspiring. Through her amazing sketches, Song brings a fantasy world to life. To add extra enjoyment, the illustrations are left for the reader to color as they wish. This adult coloring book will bring out the inner child in you as paper cranes carry presents, hot air balloons fill the sky and a young girl opens her heart to others. The black and white illustrations are rich in detail. Each page is printed on a matte-like paper made of a good thickness for coloring. An added bonus is a note card in the back of the book that has cutting lines making it easy to cut out, color and use. There are also thumbnail prints of each design page. This adult coloring book will bring a smile to your face as you view the breath-taking illustrations and lose yourself in the enjoyment of adding color to the pages. Song has created a beautiful fantasy world for all ages. FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

From the creative story to the detailed artwork, Daria Song has brought us another fantastic coloring book. Continuing with the dream style story and beautiful pages, this book is sure to keep me occupied for hours. Coloring has becoming a peaceful and quiet outlet for me over the past year or so. Expressing creativity on paper through color is one of my favorite things to do. If you have not experienced the joy of putting your pencil to page, Daria's series is an excellent place to start. I enjoy the intricate detail of her work. I have always had an obsession with stars and Daria's stars have a very unique personality which I love. Purchase your copy today and be whisked into a magical world of dreams and color. I received a free copy of The Night Voyage from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.

Oh my goodness. Daria Song has done it again. She has brought us yet another gorgeous adult coloring book to fill up our evenings with fun and relaxation. And she really brought her game with this one. Like her other coloring books, The Night Voyage also tells a story. The story is about a little girl. It is the night before her birthday and the thing she wants the most is for her parents to be home on their birthday, as they are gone on a business trip. She is surrounded by gifts, but they are not what she wants. The story then unfolds across the pages as she is off in the night delivering presents to people all around. The question is, is it a dream or is it real? Oh my goodness. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous! Breathtaking really! Most of of the illustrations are actually two page spreads, so you will have a lot of work cut out to get just one image of the story done, but the illustrations allow you to be free with your coloring style. The paper quality in The Night Voyage is what you have come to expect from a Daria Song coloring book. The pages are nice and thick. However, they are two sided! So use coloring tools that can bleed through at your own risk. Unless you don't care about the image on the opposing side of the page I would definitely recommend against using alcohol based inks! Also, since they are double sided, you cannot remove a page to frame that you really love without disrupting the flow of the story. Also, the since they are mostly two paged spreads, framing might be kind of tricky anyways. And then, at the end of the book we get a little treat! There is a card back there that you can color and cut out and mail off to a friend! I love it! Thought I would love it more if they would come out with Daria Song illustrated postcards or cards in general. I will probably color the card that is in this book at some point in time, but I don't know if I will be able to bring myself to cut it out. Gorgeous book for sure. If you love her other coloring books, you are going to absolutely adore The Night Voyage!
