Blog Tour with Giveaway & Review – Almost Night: Tales of Morcah by Emily White

ALMOST NIGHT by Emily White
Release Date: May 5, 2013
Paperback, 303 pages
Genre: YA / Fantasy / Fiction

Fourteen-year-old Lilly Grey exists in two worlds at the same time. She just doesn’t know it.
As the only albino in a million mile radius, Lilly is used to being different. Pink eyes and white hair aren’t exactly the best camouflage in the harrowing jungles formally known as high school. And yeah, she’s used to being an outcast and seeing the world in a slightly different way, but she never guessed how literally “different” applied to her.

Not until a clan of shape-shifting dragons tell her she’s not just albino. She’s a unicorn and the only mortal alive who can live on both Earth and its antithesis, Morcah. Now all those times she thought she saw a floating brown blotch in the sky or eyes peering out at her from the bark of trees make sense. She’s been seeing Morcah, a land that exists in the exact same spot as Earth, just in a different phase.

But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows for this unicorn. As the only one who can live in both phases, she’s also the only one who can bring Morcah–and all its inhabitants–to Earth. And creatures who’ve been trapped on Earth since the Dark Ages are willing to do worse things than kill to make that happen.
Again.

~ Review by Angela ~

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I loved the idea of this book. A story about a unicorn who has to help dragons get home to their land. What an interesting and intriguing idea. This book is labeled as young adult, but I don’t really think you have to be a teenager to enjoy it. The story telling was superb, the imagery was beautiful, and the characters were fully fleshed out. I didn’t feel as if the story was too rushed or too slow. It seemed like it has just the right amount of back story and action. I was able to imagine this world fairly easily because of the descriptions that Emily put in. I also was glad that she didn’t clue Lilly in to her “destiny” fully so that she can try and make up her own mind about whose side is right and whose is wrong. I give this story 4.5 books. I can’t wait to read more.

Emily White is a nerd. She prefers her men fully clothed and donning bow-ties, her commas British, her books cheesy with big, overly-dramatic explosions, her characters awkward and endearingly real,* and watching her movies in authentic turn-of-the-century theaters. When not exposing her nerdy self to the world, she’s creating her own friends and putting them in horrible, yet sometimes humorous situations.

Check out her YA Space Opera series starting with Elemental (Spencer Hill Press, 2012), continuing with FAE (February 2014), and ending sometime in the near future with a book she has yet to write. She’s also authored a collection of Steampunk (zombie, werebot romance) flash fiction, if you’re into those kinds of things, titled “To Love or Die in a Steamy-Reamy World.”
