MY REVIEW
I purchased this novella from Amazon.co.uk. The cover shows a bus parked in front of an apartment building. The bus and the building are kind of gleaming white suggesting cleanliness and perhaps purity. They both belong to the Second Chance Institute (SCI) who run the Clean Slate Complex. I like the cover as , all becomes clear about the cover when you read the novella.
So Alexa is a homeless young girl who is caring for her sick mother whilst living in a van with her three larger older brothers. It becomes apparent that Alexa's mum needs medical attention, but on the way to the SCI clinic or nearest hospital the van breaks down. It also happens to break down in a rather rough rundown area. Alexa's brothers go to phone for help leaving Alea with their mum. Unfortunately a run down man (probably a junkie) attacks Alexa. Alexa does fight back as best she can as her brothers have taught her to. Sadly it appears that her life may truly be in danger as the junkie is getting the upper hand in the fight. Then a vehicle pulls up and comes to Alexa's rescue. The vehicle is a bus that belongs to the Second Chance Institute. Also around the same time as the bus stops Alexa's three brothers arrive back panicking about what is happening.
Alexa, and her brothers are taken to the Clean Slate Complexes, whilst their mother is immediately taken to the medical centre/clinic within the complex too. The complex is so full that Alexa is given a room in the private quarters of the couple who run the complex. It's where Alexa meets Joshua, who gives some quite confusing signals as is he may be against the institute his parents are the heads of. The whole ethics of the place seem somewhat too good to be true, I mean no one does such things for nothing do they?

Daynight
YA science fiction/dystopian

This book had me gripped from the start. Being from my favourite genre, I happily jumped in and within a few chapters I was completely hooked. The chapters are written from the 3 main characters perspectives, which gives the reader greater insight into the storyline. Well written and incredibly descriptive, I was easily transported into Earth's sister planet, Thera. More and more details are slowly given as the story unfolds, giving the whole picture by the end. I couldn't decide between Ethan and Blake, and I'm sure there is so much more to come for that love triangle. Can't wait to continue reading this story, I'm sure it's going to be full of even more action.

I was gripped to daynight from the start and really liked the idea behind it. I liked that way the author told the story from the three main characters point of view, it made it really interesting and allowed you to stay ahead of characters themselves.

If you like Young Adult or Dystopian books, I highly recommend daynight. Really looking forward to reading the second book later on this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars daynight - love Love LOVE! 11 Jan. 2013
By Brittany Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
daynight is a novel that centers around three main characters: Ethan, Blake, and Kira. Kira and Blake both sign on to become Recruits for the Second Chance Institute and are sent to Thera for a year. Kira is trying to escape a tragedy that left all of her friends and boyfried dead, and Blake is heading to Thera with an ulterior motive of revenge. Ethan is the son of a memeber of the government on Thera and is already a part of the SCI, whether he likes it or not. Blake's plans for revenge are hindered by his developing feelings for Kira, and Ethan wants to make Kira his Cleave - a partner for life after having sex. Kira is torn in the middle of her feelings, wanting to keep the peace but also wanting to escape the SCI after finding out what it's really all about.

My synopsis really does not do this novel justice. I cannot even go on enough about how much I loved this novel! The changing perspectives is something I really love, and since so many of the characters are having different experiences on Thera, it was really helpful for moving the story along. I also liked the developing relationship between all of the characters. Reading through the novel, I really can't decide if I like Blake or Ethan better!

I also really enjoyed the way that the author built Thera. The reader mostly gets to see Garden City, which is only one of many cities on Thera, a planet similar to Earth but with day and night reversed and more severe heat, but the detail is amazing. The language also changes because of the time difference (dinner in the morning, breakfast in the evening, and instead of Saturday it's Saturnnight). The author really did a great job making sure that characters who were familiar with the correct lingo (Blake and Ethan) didn't struggle, but Kira did because she was new to Thera.

Overall, I really can't say enough about this novel to express my love for it. I am anxiously awaiting the next installment! I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique in Many Ways from Other YA Dystopian Fiction 20 Mar. 2013
By Sophia Lin @ Bookwyrming Thoughts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Disclaimer: I received the updated copy from the author for free in exchange for an honest review via a Read & Review program on Goodreads. My review is not influenced in any way.

Updated, you ask? Yes, updated. I apparently got the book from Amazon for free last year (read: December). I took the chance to be one of the reviewers so I can clean up my Kindle App Library (little by little), which is growing but that wasn't the actual reason why I was interested in Daynight (maybe partially though).

I was interested in Daynight due to the fact that a) the cover caught my eye (I don't judge books by covers, but it's subconscious. Moi can't help it sometimes :(), b) the synopsis was good, and c) why not? It might even be the next Divergent (hey, I'm not saying it is) or another one of my favorite novels and land on my favorites shelf (not that I have any. I treasure every good book... although some stick out).

I found the storyline unique compared to other dystopian fiction. Most dystopian fiction are set in the future, when the world has already hit the apocalypse or something of the similar sort. In Daynight, however, Earth is still there. Life is still continuing, no apocalypses. Instead, there's a parallel-like world, with strict, dictatorship-like rules. But like other dystopians, Daynight also has a corrupt government and there is a group of people wanting to overthrow it.

The way Ms. Thomason starts and ends each chapter is intriguing, especially with the first and last sentence. I also liked the way the flashbacks are set up from time to time between character POVs, however I seemed to get lost after awhile on what was going on in the story from time to time. The flashbacks tell us what's going on to other characters in the story, working behind the scenes of what the story was currently paused at before the flashback and keeping the reader curious on what will happen next.

Daynight has a few twists and turns here and there throughout the story, a handful of them unexpected, surprising or shocking. Maybe even all three. But I'm curious what will happen to Kira, Ethan, and Blake as well as what the SCI is really up to (besides you-know-what) in the future of the series (no, I don't have my predictions. Besides happily-ever-after?).
3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it despite some issues 25 May 2014
By Jessica - Published on Amazon.com

For the most part I do like the story daynight tells; certainly enough to be interested in reading the next installment in the series.

I did have a few problems with the book, mostly due to the fact that it could have used some more "polish". For one thing, I thought it was far too long for the genre, and the writing also got pretty long-winded at parts. I found myself skimming a few times, which is a shame. It's a decent story, but there really is a lot of cutting and tightening that should be done, in my opinion.

There were a couple of times where something HUGE happens, but then I didn't really see any emotional response from the characters affected - the writing would tell us instead of show us how they felt.

I got a bit frustrated with the love triangle by the end.

Overall, though, I did enjoy the book. None of these things I found to be a shortcoming was a dealbreaker for me, and I do plan on picking up the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars An out of this world dystopian series! 15 Oct. 2013
By Candy C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found i was drawn into this story fairly quickly. It starts out about high school and friend drama, but I am sure Kira would agree that, that was a walk in the park compared to where her life goes from there. A world where choice seems nonexistent and the treat of danger behind every corner. I liked how this story kept me guessing, instead of being predictable. Since we get to know both guys in Kira's life, through there points of view, I found myself torn between who Kira should be with. Megan Thomason brought this story to life for me. She is a wonderful writer who gives great details without going overboard. I can't wait for the next book because the ending to this one knocked me for a loop. I recommend this book to all ages of YA fans. Both my young adult daughter and I find this series enthralling.
4.0 out of 5 stars Successfully intertwines lots of plots and ideas into a coolly mysterious whole 19 Feb. 2015
By Sheila Deeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Unlike most dystopian novels, Megan Thomason’s Daynight fits several different premises together into a compellingly strange new world. First is an intriguing concept of “cleaving,” an unbreakable unity, replacing marriage, applied to any teens who allow their relationship to go too far. It certainly sounds like a convincing way to keep young adults in order, though the question of who defines “too far,” and who will choose who they cleave to when they reach eighteen makes it kind of scary. Add to this a world where disobedience is punishable by terrifying exile or by death. Then connect it to our own present world through strange portals, controlled by a powerful business corporation. Add Second Chancers to the mix – earth’s prematurely dead, who get a second chance at life. Stir and repeat. Sprinkle politics on top...

It’s a heady mix, and surprisingly it works, through some strong characters and the author’s strong writing. The plot may be a little unconvincing at times, but the male and female voices that tell the tale can carry it well. If Kira is occasionally blind to the logs in her own eye, well, she is a teen, and she does mature convincingly during the story. And if her different love interests keep a few too many secrets, well, the same thing applies.

A thickening plot ensues, but it keeps the reader turning pages very effectively, and this reader, at least, is eager to see the rest of the series.

Disclosure: I first read Daynight in the collection, What Tomorrow May Bring, and was glad to be introduced to this author.
