The Realm of Endless Night: The Sinzar Chronicles Book 1 by Niro J Hayle tells the story of a human teenager named Melissa who seems like a normal girl, except for that time she was able to fend off bullies in a decidedly abnormal way. It turns out there's more to Melissa than even she realized. When she finds herself in the company of a devilishly handsome stranger named Hunter, and part of an entire court that is both enthralled by and scornful of her, there's no telling which fate is worse for a young woman coming of age: high school or Vermillion Palace. She ponders: “How in the world did I get myself into this mess? I followed a strange man into the woods, that’s how.”

The Realm of Endless Night is a fun young adult story with a protagonist who is easy to root for and a cast of characters that are crafted by Niro J Hayle to near perfection. The writing is clean and straightforward, and Hayle allows the characters to do most of the talking. Melissa's family history is fraught with twists as Hayle slowly reveals what she never knew about her mother, her father, and her grandfather. Melissa has angst galore and her insecurities and teenage misunderstandings make her feel like true flesh and blood, but with a little magic. There are some wonderful fantasy concepts introduced, like True Souls, where an individual might not be entirely who you think they are. This is a great start to a new series and is highly recommended.
