The Longest Night

4 Stars/5

It has been 6 years since the Blood Moon battle, and Lucy, along with her boyfriend Nicholas, have set up a place where both vampires and Helios-Ra hunters who have problems with each other go, so they can get over their prejudices. Aggie, a Helios-Ra student, has been bought up by her sister to hate vampires but she particularly distrusts Cal, a vampire with burning blue eyes. As the winter solstice approaches and a new type of vampire hunter group are becoming more dangerous, Aggie and Cal have to work together to save their friends, and she must discover the real reason she thinks Cal is a threat.

The Longest Night is a good short story and it was nice to see some of my favourite characters back and to see what they have been up to since the last book. However, that being said, it felt like the characters had not matured much in the six years, and with how they acted it could have been set less than a year after the Blood Moon battle.

Aggie was an interesting character as she wants to live up to her deceased sister’s beliefs and decisions, but at the same time wants to make her own opinion on what is right and wrong. The romance in this book is good, but I wish there was more of Nicholas and Lucy as they are one of my favourite couples.

This is a really enjoyable novella, however I wish it was a bit longer. I would recommend The Longest Night to fans of the Drake Chronicles.
