The Night of Elisa Blog Tour [Review]

The Night of Elisa by Isis Sousa

Genres: Gothic/Paranormal

Publisher: Tragic Books
Release Date: May 30 2014

.: A Gothic Novella :.

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?

Embark with Elisa on this puzzling Gothic adventure set in the late Victorian era, between the world of the Living and the picturesque, melancholic Duskland.

  I have so much love for this book and author. It has been such a long time since I indulged in a book with illustrations. Usually I like to let my imagination build the scenes as I read, but Isis is so talented at sketching and drawing that whenever I read the illustrated edition, I stopped to soak in the scenery. I'm a visual person. There's a reason why I'm a cover snob. I like pretty things. I like artistic things. And that's what is delivered with The Night of Elisa. The story and illustrations are so vivid that this story seeps into your mind and pulls you into its darkness.

  The characters in this story are so wonderful. Each of them felt so developed and real. I was constantly riveted by the twists and turns of this story. Nothing was as it seemed in Duskland and the characters fit in seamlessly as part of the world.

  The Night of Elisa is such a fun book. Not in a sense that it's a cutesey read. But it's so fun to immerse yourself in the world of Duskland. This is a novel heavy on the Gothic side, and it's all done perfectly right. I honestly feel like Isis Sousa has transcended the confines of genres with The Night of Elisa. If you haven't read it yet, what are you waiting for?!

**I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review with no compensation.

"I am not a writer, neither is writing one of my passions, on the contrary; I see it as a necessary evil! I like to say I am an illustrator and storyteller.

I was born and raised in Brazil and since 2009, been living in Norway with my best-half. I work as illustrator and graphic designer from my home-office, in slippers and comfy clothes. (Would really prefer PJs, but here and there someone knocks on the door!)

Love Heavy Metal, Fantasy and Dark Fantasy and most forms of art.”
