Night of Nyx is 2.5 in The Nightfall Chronicles series. It is a short story and takes place during House of Ravens but from Andriy Zorin’s pov.

This short story offers plenty of action allowing us to experience a fight through the eyes of a true warrior.

We also learn more of Zorin’s past which so far has been kept a secret from us. Love and heartbreak is a recurring feature in his long life. It certainly gives you a deeper connection to him and a will for things to become better.

While I enjoyed this story there were moments of repetitiveness. Certain scenes and conversations were repeated pretty much word for word from House of Ravens and I found myself wanting to skim over those parts so I could get to the new material.

The parts of the story I enjoyed the most were the few moments of narrative from the pov of Varian. Throughout House of Ravens I wanted to learn more of him. He is a very clever man and his mind has always been a puzzle I’ve wanted to piece together and his moments of narrative in Night of Nyx allowed me to start that puzzle.

Night of Nyx is a great fit in The Nightfall Chronicles series, allowing the reader to experience this exciting world through the eyes of some of our favourite characters.
