Beware the NightThe Offering Series (Volume 1)
Jessika Fleck's Beware the Night is a YA dystopic novel about a young woman who must join a dangerous revolution to fight against injustice—and the boy she loves.
On the island of Bellona, they worship the sun. Seventeen-year-old Veda understands that keeping the sun content ensures plentiful crops, peace and harmony, and a thriving economy. But as a member of the Basso class, she never reaps those benefits.
Life as a Basso is one fraught with back-breaking work and imposing rules. Her close friendship with Nico is Veda’s one saving grace in a cruel world where the division between her people and the ruling Dogio is as wide and winding as the canals that snake through their island.
But when Veda’s grandfather is chosen as the next sacrificial offering to keep the sun’s favor, Veda is forced to see the injustice of her world. Turning away from the sun means she must join the night—and an underground revolution she’s been taught to fear all her life.
The snap echoes between the walls of my skull as white-hot pain shoots down my throat and into my ears, pushing water from my eyes.
One shaky whimper flees my lips. Just one.

Praise for Beware the Night
"Fleck has crafted a fully realized world complete with its own history and mythology to immerse her readers. Finely tuned and masterfully written, this is a must-purchase for all fantasy shelves." —School Library Journal, starred review
"Newcomer Fleck has an atmospheric style, noting little details in every passage. Veda is a scrappy heroine, seemingly forever caught between extremes . . . the story is engrossing and the book itself is recommended." —Booklist
