Night is coming, and so are they.

Milena’s twentieth birthday, the day she would join the ranks of her village’s hunters, should have been the most exciting day of her life. Being a hunter meant she would be able to help protect her village from the murderous wolves who take human form—the creatures of the night. But a chance encounter with Elias, the enigmatic leader of the creatures, leaves her questioning everything she has ever believed to be true.

Up until now, Elias has managed to protect the creatures of the night and keep the secrets of his past well hidden. Now, as tensions between the groups grow, Elias is forced to make hard decisions: ones that will cost lives. Nobody is safe, especially Milena, the person he is inexplicably drawn to even though it could destroy them both.

Equal parts suspense, mystery, and romance, Creatures of the Night captures the struggle between learning to trust your instincts and each other.

I was absolutely enthralled with the plot of Creatures of the Night. The flow of the writing was beautifully done and the plot was well spaced out in my opinion. I have been very excited about reading this book and was not disappointed at all. Creatures of the Night follows an enemies to lovers plot involving Milena, a member of a village who hunts the creatures of the night. Milena is an enjoyable FMC with a mysterious past and curious nature. I did feel like her character could use some more depth but the foreshadowing in this book tells me that the next installment will be revealing for sure. I felt like the chemistry in this book was very YA and slow burn. The world building was very easy to follow which is appreciated. It was fun reading a book that focused mainly on plot and relationships between characters. I definitely had fun reading this book and would recommend it for a quick YA Fantasy read

I kind of had low expectations for this book. Like the synopsis seemed really interesting, but a lot of times stories like this end up disappointing. That is not the case with this book, it far exceeded my expectations. I do feel like the "battle" part of the book dragged on a bit. However the ending sent me on an emotional Rollercoaster. *possible spoilers* I was pissed, you really put me through all of that just for their relationship to end like THAT?? But I was hopeful, there were still a few more pages and we get that beautiful cliffhanger. I can't wait for the next book! *Thank you to the publisher for this eARC.

Wow. This book had me whirling around. Malina was an absolutely amazing character. The growth was slow and everything was absolutely perfectly well developed. This was a five star read. The ending was slightly predictable or maybe I should say overdone, in that a lot of books lately have ended with that sort of cliffhanger. But the world development, the stockholm syndrome-esque feelings, the relationships were so so well developed and well done that the ending didn't really matter. I can't wait to see how Collins does the second book.

Synopsis Milena’s biggest dream from the time she was a little girl was to become a huntress like her guardian Charles, and the leader of their people. However, he and his people had different plans for her. What she knew was that they were hunting the monsters they called creatures of the night. She always saw murderers in them while they were only protecting their people from her people. She learned about it soon after she turned twenty. On her twentieth birthday she learned that she won’t become a huntress, but a sacrifice. Charles was raising, and protecting her this whole time just to sacrifice her for immortality. She was lucky enough that someone was always nearby watching her, and making sure she wouldn't get hurt. On the day of the sacrifice, the leader of the creatures of the night came to her rescue. He took her away and shared the truth with her. Now it’s her turn to decide what to do with this knowledge and learn who she can trust. Book Review I think I didn’t read any books about werewolves for about ten years. When I started reading books they all were about vampires and werewolves, so after reading a thousand of them, I didn't feel like reading stories like this anymore. However, since I had a good surprise with books like Crave, and The Beautiful that was about vampires, I decided to give this book a chance. It was so good that I read it in two days. I wasn’t expecting it, and imagine my shock when after two hours I was already halfway through the book. The world in this book was divided into four species; humans, shifters, hollowers, and whispers. The whispers were the most powerful of them all because of their unique powers, however, with years they became almost extinct since only one of them was left behind on the earth. Wolf shifters dedicated their lives to protecting the vulnerable humans from the colonies of hollowers that are feeding on them to survive. This was the first thing that intrigued me to read it because of its uniqueness. I liked the fact that when you read the book you learn about this world together with Milena since she found out about all of this first when she was taken away from hollowers. It let me understand the world and the story better. In the beginning, I thought the trope in this book was the chosen one but how wrong I was. The book is full of plot twists and you never know what’s gonna happen next, and who you and Milena can trust. Milena grew a lot as a person in this book since after she was betrayed by her only family she didn’t know who he was. It took her quite some time to figure it out but it also made her stronger. Elias was a great help to her. He made her feel safe for the first time in a long time. He gave her a place to belong, and people to care about. You have no idea how badly I wanted them to be together. You can feel the chemistry between them but he keeps his distance, which made me drive crazy. Well, I understand why he does it but man it’s so frustrating. Elias is my favorite character in this book but it’s not a surprise. Mysterious and powerful guys were always my weakness. He has something in himself that you just want to get more and more scenes with him. I still feel I didn’t get enough of him, so I hope there will be a second book since there is such a cliffhanger at the end of the book. What else can I tell you? If you are looking for an original story with new species and a unique plot then you should read this book. It will not disappoint you! I would like to thank FavoritePages, Grace Collins, and Wattpad Books for including me in the blog tour for this book. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series!

This was a good read and an original concept. I liked Milena. At first I was worried that she was going to be yet another self sacrificing young female YA character that needs constant saving from her legion of protectors. As the plot thickened and her knowledge grew, she showed real grit and intelligence.

I received this book in exchange for a review from NetGalley. This book surprised me in more ways than one. It took many twists and turns that left me on the edge of my seat. I thought I had this whole book figured out. It started off so typical with one small town girl meets otherwordly creature. We have all read this story before, but yet this author takes a simple premise and manages to turn it on its head. Even the characters who I thought I figured out, yet again, she keeps them interesting and fully thought out. In the end, I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more books in the future, especially this series.
