Shade of Night, Stephen R Deppermann – A Review. [SPOILERS].

What Em's Reading (4)

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog! Today (if you hadn’t guessed from the title) I’m reviewing Shade of Night by Stephen R Deppermann – this was published on the 13th July 2019 and be purchased here on Amazon.

I received an ARC from NetGalley in return for an honest review both on NetGalley and my blog. 

Overall rating – 2 out of 5 stars.

Let me preface this review by saying this is a DNFR situation! I really struggled to get into this book, I found it too complicated and like the storyline wasn’t really making sense to me.

According to my Kindle, I was 31% of the way through (so I gave it a good go!) but it felt like so much more had been crammed into those pages and that it was rushed. Too much happened in that space of time, but at the same time, it felt like it was dragging to reach a climax.

I actually found the concept really interesting, almost a bit Dan Brown-y in a way that it was addressing things hidden just out of the public eye by the Government, and I do think it would be a really good book, but there were just too many different aspects, and too many characters to keep up with. 

I’ll try and give this book another go later on, but I really feel it just isn’t for me.

Have you read Shade of Night? Let me know if you have and what you thought! Em xxx
