The Longest Night by Gary Dini hardly kept my attention. I found myself falling asleep while reading it. The chapters were way too long. As an example, the Prologue is fifty-five pages, and the entire book is 193 pages. The author did, however, give great background information for each character which made it easier to relate to them throughout the story.
The story follows the Tremaine brothers Malcolm and Tristan. Malcolm is in a position of power for the duration of the story yet it originally said he was a recluse. Tristan is a more wild character. They travel through the mountains and come across a baby Yeti which they take it in and help it develop. What will happen to the Yeti? (more…)
