The book continues after the end of the first book in this duology by Janella Angeles. As the heroine wanders through a new world she had fallen, her love interest also is trying to find the heroine and his sister. As they go through their own dangerous journey, they encounter obstacles that will determine their destinies.

The first book of the duology should be read before this book. This brings more facets to the main characters as they strive to overcome what they are facing in their individual journey as well as when they gather together at the second half of the book. Though this book brought resolutions to some unanswered questions in the first book, as a personal reference the book still have some missing information that would have been nice to be added in the story. Some characters brought a strong image in this book while other ones were disappointingly flat. The world of magic and illusions are strong, expanded in this second book. Overall, it's a nice read of a fantastical world that Janella Angeles created.

Series Info/Source: This is the 2nd book in the Kingdom of Cards duology. I got an eGalley of this book to review through NetGalley.

Thoughts: This book picks up where the last one left off. Kallia wakes up in the mirror world and Daron is desperately trying to find a way into that world from the “normal” world ro find her.

This did a good job of wrapping up this duology and is beautifully written. Some things about the story remained a bit ambiguous and the story felt a bit long at points. I am still a bit confused about some overall concepts here; for example how did the mirror world form and why were people trapped there and what exactly are the devils? This was a long and wandering story and it’s possible I just missed some of that. I kept falling asleep while reading this, so it is possible I just wasn’t cohesive enough to make complete sense of all of this.

The story is written in a way that is beautiful, glittering but it wanders a lot. I felt like this book was a lot longer than it needed to be, a lot of the things that happened in the mirror world with Kallia felt unnecessary. There is also a lot of page space dedicated to characters standing around thinking about their lives rather than doing anything.

Despite all of my complaints, this does wrap up the story well. Even though parts of this did drag for me, I still enjoyed the pure spectacle of it. The descriptions of things that exist in the mirror world are glittering and unique and you never know what will be around the next corner.

My Summary (3/5): Overall I didn’t enjoy this as much as the first book in the series. It does a decent job of wrapping up the duology but wanders a lot as well. It felt like parts of this book were unnecessarily long. I also felt like by the end I still didn’t understand why a lot of things had happened. This is beautifully written and some of the descriptions are amazingly creative. I do think Angeles has a very unique writing style and I would like to see what she comes up with in the future. ( )

With vibes reminiscent of Night Circus, When Night Breaks brings you into the glittering, shimmering world behind the mirrors, giving a whirlwind tour of a place that is part circus, part nightmare. It's a place held together by a pact between The Dealer and the devils. The City, a glamorous shadow of Glorian, belongs to The Dealer, the most powerful magician of them all, but everywhere else belongs to the devils. In the city, the fallen magicians have built a world of ambition, performances and parties.

Kallia finds herself with Jack, the man she once trusted above all else and who trained her in magic, but also the mans she fled when she realized he had her in a gilded cage. He's familiar with the world they find themselves in, but Kallia struggles to believe a word he says. Instead, she seeks out The Dealer, who shares secrets of her past and pushes her to attempt to regain her stolen magic for purposes of his own. Meanwhile, back in the real Glorian, DeMarco and the friends she left behind are following every lead to try to find Kallia and bring her home. Kallia and DeMarco must find out if there's a way to bridge between the two worlds they find themselves in.

The descriptions of the magic and magic shows are stunning, and the Phantom of the Opera vibes are back, with Jack playing the part of the Phantom and DeMarco playing the part of Raul.This sequel delivers on all the promise and fireworks of the first book. Once I started it, I could not put it down.

Thank you to Wednesday Books and NetGalley for the advance review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )

I was so excited to read this book, and it did not disappoint. I had to read the first book of the Kingdom of Card duology because the story picked up from where Jack and Kallia left off to the world beyond the mirror.

The start was a bit slow, but soon the pace picked up, and the book was an enjoyable read. The twists and turns were a lot, and the description was vivid. The world-building was impressive.

The characters felt so real, and I could relate to most of them. I loved Kallia; she was a strong protagonist. The slow-burn romance paired well with the magic in this remarkable book.

I loved the writing style; the author did an excellent job capturing my attention with her beautiful writing.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and I recommend it to everyone who likes Fantasy stories with slow-burn romance. ( )
