Lisa Ruscyk is not only a really sweet person but she’s also a very creative writer. I read and reviewed THE BLUE PEN back in October and just loved it. Check out my review and the actual synopsis of the book by clicking here! So when Lisa contacted me to review another book of hers I immediately said yes. The blurb sounded pretty good but I really had no idea what I was going into because I never quite know what to expect with Lisa and her writing. I was right to think that way because SAM THE NIGHT PERSON was nothing like I thought it would be. It was another unique story that totally kept me engrossed until the very end!
Azzy seems like a love-struck weirdo at the beginning to be quite honest. She’s never met Sam and yet she is on a mission to find him. And when Sam comes into the story he seems pretty stuck-up and rude at the beginning. So the two main characters are not very likable at first but as the story really gets going the reader may just be thrown for a loop. Puzzle pieces start to click together in one’s mind as the plot twists and turns and reveals the truth. Both characters develop and grow quite a lot. I can’t express how fun the journey was to watch them discover things about each other and themselves as the story progressed. And the paranormal aspects of the novel were really unique and honestly a breath of fresh air. Sam is a night person; someone who has powers that are fueled by the moonlight. And Azzy has some secret powers of her own. The whole premise was fun and has tremendous room to grow into more fabulous books.
The ending left me unsatisfied to be honest. I wanted more! And I’m super excited to report that there is a follow up book of sorts titled FULL MOON IN DECEMBER that I'm planning on getting my hands on. Lisa’s books are usually e-book formatted. However I was lucky enough to receive paperback copies of both. The good news is the books are available for sale as paperbacks as well, so there’s no excuse not to get your butt in gear and pick up SAM THE NIGHT PERSON. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
