Night (1960) is a work by Elie Wiesel about his experience with his father in the Nazi German concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald in 1944–1945, at the height of the Holocaust toward the end of the Second World War. In just over 100 pages. In just over 100 pages of sparse and fragmented narrative, Wiesel writes about the death of God and his own increasing disgust with humanity, reflected in the inversion of the parent–child relationship, as his father declines to a helpless state and Wiesel becomes his resentful.

Rare book
This book is complex and you need to read it through to understand. In essence, Istar the heroine is trying to understand what the Sekk are and why they are enslaving people. There is an area in the mountains where they are supposedly coming from- an area which is of strategic interest to several parties. But instead of your typical "Armageddon is coming, how can we avoid it?" storyline, Istar digs deeper to try to understand the history of her people and how this terrible process could have been brought about. There are several other interesting people, with their own backstories and aspirations. They include Liaku, who can communicate with birds; Hezene, a grasping politician; Tash, Hezene's rival; and Tarquin, a fallen warrior who meets up with his lost love.
This book carries the tag-line, "In a world of shifting realities, two warriors begin a deadly quest for truth."
OK. The two warriors are from the first book, (Tarquin/Quintar and Istar) - however, this book goes into more character development with other first book characters, so it's really a book with several warriors using weapons or birds or magic, etc.
The people are primative yet have advanced technology. It reminds me of the theory of what would happen to earth if we were GIVEN hi-tech info from an alien race. You need the time it takes to invent these things to use them properly - or at least use them to their potential.
Some chapters are very in-depth, some are vague. First you'll get a really good grip on events, and then you get to passages you'll have to read 2 or 3 times to understand what's going on. Some passages seem to be 'asides' FROM no one imparticular TO no on imparticular. It gets confusing and even irritating at times.
I got to the end and my first reaction was, "So, what the heck does that mean?"
The first book was enough to hook you and make you want to know what happens; the second was a disappointment because it left too much unanswered. I'm waiting for the third for answers.
Please let there be a third book. I can't leave the story like this.
Imaginative and pulls you into the book! Even after all these years its one of my favorite books!
