Creatures of the Night - Blog Tour


Creatures of the Night

by Grace Collins
Publisher: Wattpad Books
Release Date: July 13th 2021

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Paranormal


Make your way home at five. Be in the tunnels as the sun begins to fall. Seal the entrance. Leave enough room for malfunction. These are the rules I grew up with, the ones I never dared to break. Until now.

Milena’s twentieth birthday, the day she would join the ranks of her village’s hunters, should have been the most exciting day of her life. Being a hunter meant she would be able to help protect her village from the murderous wolves who take human form—the creatures of the night. But a chance encounter with Elias, the enigmatic leader of the creatures, leaves her questioning everything she has ever believed to be true.

Up until now, Elias has managed to protect the creatures of the night and keep the secrets of his past well hidden. Now, as tensions between the groups grow, Elias is forced to make hard decisions: ones that will cost lives. Nobody is safe, especially Milena, the person he is inexplicably drawn to even though it could destroy them both.

My Thoughts:

I have not read a lot of paranormal romance but I’m so glad I gave this one a try. Once I picked it up, I could not put it down. One of my favorite things about this book is the shifters included. I really think YA needs more books with shifters in them. I really appreciated the growth that Milena went through in the book but mostly in the second half. I am definitely looking to forward to seeing her character develop more in the next book.

I felt that the dialogue done in this book was well written and flowed very smoothly. While the dialogue was done well, I do wish I would’ve seen a bit more complexity in Milena’s and Elias’ relationship. Regardless of the flat relationship, I really enjoyed Milena and Elias as separate characters. Another thing that’s hard for me is literally just the character name, Elias. It’s being used way too much in recent YA novels and it made it a little tough to keep his character, his own.

To sum it all up though, I enjoyed this story and felt that it was unique and thoughtful. I loved the various tropes that were used and the number of times I was able to relate to the character.

*Favorite Quotes*

"And they're gone and I'm left alone with the one person I'm convinced actually wants me dead."

"When they look human and act human, it's hard to believe they're not."

"I feel like the knife before I see it, a sharp pain blossoming in my chest as her eyes meet mine."

"All my life I hid from the trees. The night and its shadows were my enemies."

"Because even as night descends around us, stars peek through the shadows. And they shine brighter in the darkness."
