THE NIGHT OF ELISA
By: Isis Sousa
I was provided with a free illustrated copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The Night of Elisa is a dark tale written for an adult audience of ages 16+.
This book contains 30 pencil sketches throughout the book. The sketches are very well and add to the dark appeal of this novella.
From the Goodreads Description:
“Sometimes, life and love can follow the most obscure paths, just as they did for Elisa. Her life becomes a dark, cold, lonely cage the day the devil takes her as his wife. He robs her of almost everything she holds dear: her health, her wealth and what is left of her family.
Trapped between the nuances of life and beyond-life, Elisa finds herself struggling for a better tomorrow. With her health deteriorating, how will she summon the courage and strength to stand her ground? And how far will she go in the pursuit of a dream?”
This book takes place in the Victorian era in two very different settings. Some scenes take place in the living world and others take place in “Duskland.”
This book is definitely unique and I enjoyed reading it, but it is also very short.
If you are looking for a quick read with a gothic flair, you will enjoy “The Night of Elisa.”
I give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.
