We Rule the Night

Two girls use forbidden magic to fly and fight — for their country and for themselves — in this riveting debut that’s part Shadow and Bone, part Code Name Verity.

Seventeen-year-old Revna is a factory worker, manufacturing war machines for the Union of the North. When she’s caught using illegal magic, she fears being branded a traitor and imprisoned. Meanwhile, on the front lines, Linné defied her father, a Union general, and disguised herself as a boy to join the army. They’re both offered a reprieve from punishment if they use their magic in a special women’s military flight unit and undertake terrifying, deadly missions under cover of darkness. Revna and Linné can hardly stand to be in the same cockpit, but if they can’t fly together, and if they can’t find a way to fly well, the enemy’s superior firepower will destroy them — if they don’t destroy each other first.

We Rule the Night is a fiercely compelling story about sacrifice, complicated friendships, and survival against impossible odds.

From NOVL Nation

“This is the kind of book that once you start you will not be able to put down. Once you start reading the mystery is so intense that you will have to know how it all ends.”

—Patti, Lovely Loveday

“I highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys complex world building, feminist reads, those who have a predilection for war stories, or for someone who still wants fantasy but likes a little something extra!”

—Adrienne, My Bookish Bones

“The magic system was very cool, and the living metal was an awesome addition. I liked the war machines, and their training, and their sacrifices, and their messy, loyal friendships. I liked the fact that this wasn’t about love at all, m/f or f/f but just about life and survival.”

—Amanda, Amanda Bradburn
