When seventeen-year-old Nedra Brysstain leaves her home in the rural, northern territories of Lunar Island to attend the prestigious Yugen Academy, she has only one goal in mind: learn the trade of medicinal alchemy. A scholarship student matriculating with the children of Lunar Island's wealthiest and most powerful families, Nedra doesn't quite fit in with the other kids at Yugen, who all look down on her. All, except for Greggori "Grey" Astor. Grey is immediately taken by the brilliant and stubborn Nedra, who he notices is especially invested in her studies. And that's for a good reason: a deadly plague has been sweeping through the North, and it's making its way toward the cities. With her family's life--and the lives of all of Lunar Island's citizens--on the line, Nedra is determined to find a cure for the plague. Grey and Nedra continue to grow closer, but as the sickness spreads and the body count rises, Nedra becomes desperate to find a cure. Soon, she finds herself diving into ...

Give the Dark My Love Reviews
Give the Dark My Love by Beth Revis is the first book in the new young adult fantasy series by the same title. The content of this series is on the darker side with dealing with things like a plague and necromancy but I’d also warn of animal harm (rats) for those that would be bothered.
Nedra Brysstain is from the poorer area of Lunar Island in the northern territory but all of her life she’s wanted nothing other than to study medical alchemy. When signs of a new disease starts hitting the north ...more
It was dark and twisted and exactly what an antihero story should be.
Before I dived into the Give the Dark My Love (does anyone else think the title is gorgeous!) I read some reviews and I was seduced by the notion of an antiheroine. It is not so often when books show us full descent of leading character into the darkness. But Give the Dark My Love does it unapologetically and with a brazen flare....more
I shuddered every time I had to read about the monstrosities the heroine had to endure. The world
Nedra shines as an innocent, hopeful girl who dreams of helping her people as a healer and alchemist, but who instead finds herself on a dark and forbidden path that will cost her her innocence and so much more. Watching Nedra's descent into darkness was truly thrilling; THIS is how you write an anti-hero. Brava!
“If you do this, Nedra, if you choose necromancy . . . I will not follow you into that darkness.”
“Oh, Grey,” I said, shifting my bag on my shoulder. “What do you know of darkness?”
Well. This book's darkness certainly creeps up on you. In the best kind of way.
While reading the first half of Give the Dark My Love, I thought it was a decent YA fantasy. It checked a number of boxes that appeal to me - "magic" alchemy school with mysterious tutors, political intrigue, some diversity (view spoiler)[ ...more
"No" I said, my voice strong and loud, puncturing the silence. I cast one last look at him, then turned away. "They're mine."
I did not expect this book to be so dark. That shock me. But it was very interesting to me all these dark themes in the book because I have never read a book with dark fantasy themes.
This book definitely give me Game of Thrones vibes, like a White Walkers pov.
I love this book, the storyline and 60% love the characters.
Firstly, the storyline is sick. The plotline of the pl ...more
NEDRA HONEY GO GET THEM!!!
"I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul."
-Pablo Neruda, Sonnet XVII
This book is dark, heavy, and irreverent... and I love it. It is a book about necromancy, sure, but at heart it was an exposition on grief. Give The Dark My Love is one to add to my favorite books featuring an anti-hero and I think those who enjoy this type of unsettling novel will really take to it. At times it felt lyrical, and even poetic, but the writing is never so lofty ...more
Wow wow wow this book really was incredible. This book is not about romance, unlike the title suggests. This book is about succumbing to the darkness. I absolutely loved watching Nedra’s journey and how, in her quest for good, she becomes enamored by darkness.
