A STAR SHALL FALL
Brennan revisits the world created in Midnight Never Come, moving it forward into England’s Age of Enlightenment and using newfound discoveries in science and math to advance the plot, strengthening the link between the mortal and the fae. The worldbuilding is richly nuanced and the plot complex, with a lengthy and initially bewildering cast of characters. Readers who enjoy lush historical fiction will surely appreciate Brennan’s finesse here. Careful reading is required to avoid getting lost in the ambitious plot and wealth of detail.
