BIG OLD YIKES It's hard for me to write this review because I really wanted to love this book and I was so excited to have a Fantasy book with an all Latinx castSadly this book has one big issue that I need to talk aboutThis book is about a prince and a thief in a magical world The prince can travel from one place to another by making basically any wall a door The thief steals something from the prince and they meet The prince's cousin who's like a brother to him gets poisoned and in order to save him the prince uses the help of black magic that's been locked away for years The black magic gets unleashed and roams through the city leaving destruction in its wake It uses people as vessels making their veins black and raised but some are too weak and simply turn to dustThere's a piece of the black magic that the prince and the thief keep and it helps the prince bring the thief through one of his doorways even though he usually can only go alone That piece also wears the prince out because it tempts him to use itDoes this sound familiar If it doesn't you probably haven't read the Shades of Magic trilogy by VE SchwabI hate to be that person but as someone who loves VE Schwab and the trilogy and is also know for that it would feel wrong for me to not point these similarities out It is UNCANNYI know that there's rarely any truly uniue books out there any A lot of the elements in the plot of both NOCTURNA and SHADES OF MAGIC can be found in plenty of other books But the fact that there's so many matching things in both does seem weirdAnd it's not only the plot but also the characters the way they behave and the dynamics between themAlfie the prince has the ability to see magic which comes VERY close to Alucard's ability While Alfie's brother who was supposed to be King has died prior to this story his cousin who as I said above is like a brother to Alfie reads a lot like Rhy And while Alfie did remind me off Kell often times the thing that really rubbed me the wrong way is the fact that Finn the thief IS Lila Bard Like let's just take a look at some of these uotes “Nothing makes me feel small without paying the price That creepy thing owes me a debt for that and I always get what I'm owed”“But if Finn was known for anything it was jumping headfirst into things that were very bad ideas”“'I don't have much fear in me Prince I'm not going to waste it on him' she said her mouth curling into a snarl around that word She tossed him a smirk that almost covered the turmoil churning beneath it”“She'd always imagined the weight of someone's hand in her own to feel like an anchor tugging her into a forced stasis when she only wanted to run to be free Yet now she wanted nothing than to stay She felt freedom in this moment than all her years combined Freedom she was coming to understand could be found in a person instead of a place” I'm a hardcore Shades of Magic fan but you probably could've sold these to me as something that Lila has said and I would've believe you that's how much this sounds like herShe is in general scared of staying too long in one place she is scared of commitment and getting attached to other people This also shows in her dynamic with Alfie where both clearly like each other a lot but don't wanna admit itAnd the book ends with Finn leaving on a shipIt's just all a tad too close And again I hate doing this I don't want to call this book out like this but there is absolutely no way to unsee the similarities So here I am just putting out what I personally observedIn the beginning I still enjoyed this book regardless but when there were and similarities I started disliking this book and as well On top of that I thought the second half was incredibly boring funnily exactly when it started going into a different direction plot wiseSo I'm sure this book will work for some people I didn't dislike it because it is bad but because I think it is absolutely too close to my favourite trilogy of all time It feels uncomfortable to read this book with all its similarities but also in comparison it just cannot hold up at all♦ Booktube Channel ♦ Twitter ♦ Instagram ♦ I received an ARC through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review
