One of my favorite YAs I’ve read this year. I didn’t want it to end! ( )

Lightlark (Lightlark, #1) by Alex Aster

The Island of Lightlark appers every onehundred years for the Centenial. The rulers of the six realms must fight to break the Curse and save their realms.

Each Curse is different, dangerous and created from all things evil. One ruler must die in order to save all of thier worlds.

Isla is one of the youngest rulers of all the realms and one of the most hated. She will fight with all of her might, lie and cheat if she must. Not knowing who is friend or foe makes this a challenge, as secrets are kept and loyalties tested.

The story moves at a steady pace with well developed (unique) characters. Attention to details, pulls you in deep. Suspesne, action, thrills, a splash of romance and didn't-see-that-coming moments. I was hooked from the first page.

Overall I found Lightlark enjoyable. I highly recommend to those who enjoy a great fantasy. I look forward to the next book in the series Nightbane. ( )

Oh, look, another BookTok book. I got this one alongside others from the library and after enjoying another novel, Lightlark seemed right up my alley. A high YA fantasy story? That sounds like an outstanding read. I finally picked it up and read Lightlark, but when I finished it, I was underwhelmed. Maybe Nightbane could be better.

It starts with the first character I see, Isla Crown, living in Wildling, one of the six realms, wanting to restore its glory after the curse plagued the world she resides in. She has an opportunity to do so when the central island, Lightlark, rises, allowing six rulers to fight to the death to remove their afflictions. There are so many flaws in Lightlark, I don't know where to begin. The pacing is too tedious and not engaging enough for me to continue reading. A typical edition would clock in at under 400 pages, but this one had over 700 due to the large print. I couldn't connect or relate to the characters. The worldbuilding isn't there; there's no explanation as to why the ordeals are there. If curse-affected Wildlings must kill their partners, how come Isla fell in love with someone without murdering him? The writing style is rudimentary (I get it. The author could've used that writing method to make Lightlark more accessible, but it juxtaposes the setting and the text would be better off as more eloquent prose.) Did I mention Lightlark copied The Hunger Games? To equate the former to authors like Marie Lu, Marissa Meyer and Leigh Bardugo would be an insult. By the time the narrative ended, I didn't care about anything in there anymore.

To summarise, Lightlark joins a long line of underwhelming, overrated and overhyped BookTok publications that did not live up to their promises, like A Winter's Promise and The Hazel Wood. ( )

Slowish start but I became invested and obsessed. I want the next book. I don’t know how I feel about this books end game, I’m in two minds! I think I’m stuck on the shadow daddy theme and want that as end game but I’m kind of liking the golden daddy theme but Grim treated her and cared for her so much that I feel bad for him! ( )

Even though I am not this book's intended audience (I'm 22), I will say that I LOVED this book. I read 93% of it in one day. I really enjoyed the twists and turns in this book because it made it hard to put down. I felt as if it was a combination of other fantasy/fiction series I've enjoyed such as Harry Potter and PJO in the past. After finishing it, I've never been so glad I already had my hands on the second book in the series. ( )
