Flynn Nightsider and the Edge of Evil tells Flynn, someone born without magic in a world full of it. The government thinks that people without magic aren’t worth much and those with are important. The Rising, a group of rebels, wants to change the government and so Flynn decides to help them. During his stay with the Rising, Flynn learns a lot about himself and his dead mother.

Flynn Nightsider and the Edge of Evil was a bit of a slow read, so it was a bit hard to get through the book and get into the story. It took me a little while to read Flynn Nightsider, almost two weeks! Besides it being slow, I also want to say that I love multiple perspectives if it’s clearly stated whose perspective it is.  It’s not that it wasn’t clear, but I think that it’s always easier when you can tell whose perspective it is before you start reading the chapter.

Now onto positive things! I really liked the concept of this story. A world with people who can practise magic and those who cannot, with special creatures and a group of rebels. Flynn Nightsider and the Edge of Evil was really interesting and the characters were really likeable! I enjoyed reading from Aurelia’s perspective because she’s such a badass!

Something I also really liked, were the illustrations and dark pages. It gave the book something extra and I have to admit, I love those extras! Here are two pictures of how the inside of the book looks:

So besides the book being a bit slow, I really enjoyed reading Flynn Nightsider and the Edge of Evil and I cannot wait to read the sequel and the prequels!
