This Target Exclusive Edition includes the exclusive original short story, “The Girl With the Three Shadows," an eerie, gorgeous folktale from the universe of Charlie Hall.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black makes her stunning adult debut with Book of Night, a modern dark fantasy of shadowy thieves and secret societies in the vein of Ninth House and The Night Circus.

Charlie Hall has never found a lock she couldn’t pick, a book she couldn’t steal, or a bad decision she wouldn’t make. She's spent half her life working for gloamists, magicians who manipulate shadows to peer into locked rooms, strangle people in their beds, or worse. Gloamists guard their secrets greedily, creating an underground economy of grimoires. And to rob their fellow magicians, they need Charlie.

Now, she’s trying to distance herself from past mistakes, but going straight isn’t easy. Bartending at a dive, she’s still entirely too close to the corrupt underbelly of the Berkshires. Not to mention that her sister Posey is desperate for magic, and that her shadowless and possibly soulless boyfriend has been keeping secrets from her. When a terrible figure from her past returns, Charlie descends back into a maelstrom of murder and lies. Determined to survive, she’s up against a cast of doppelgängers, mercurial billionaires, gloamists, and the people she loves best in the world — all trying to steal a secret that will allow them control of the shadow world and more.

"Black is a master at world-building." —The New York Times Book Review

Q: Is the "Only at Target" marker a sticker or a permanent part of the cover?

A wonderful tale filled with magic, shadows and murder. A retired thief must embark on her most dangerous job yet in order to save her boyfriend and hopefully take down the most ruthless leader of the council in the process. Lots of plot twists and per usual from Holly Black, amazing world building.

Excellent Dark Fantasy

This is storytelling in style. Usually I'm that person who can guess how things are going to go from reading a few chapters, but Book of Night is fresh and twisted and unpredictable. That alone is cause for excitement. Also exciting is the magic system! The rules are a little dense at first (but what good magic system isn't?), but once you get it, you get it. Our shadows are the worst of us, imbued with everything we push down: all our uncomfortable experiences, and our rage and our hatred. What happens when that part of you can run amok? Or it's stolen? Or it's damaged? What then do you become? This book has the answers for some. Something Charlie Hall says in the book: being a con artist is like always being told that they'll get caught one day, and that becomes less of a warning and more of a dare. That idea really struck me, and that's essentially who Charlie Hall is. She's the best; she's flashy; she could steal the breath from your lungs. I love her snark. And she's so smart and resourceful. She's made so many bad choices in her life, and she's egged on to keep making them. She's aware of it. But she's a character who knows that sometimes, a LOT of times, all the choices available are bad. Her relationships with her family, her boyfriend, her past: they're all so messy and complex on the page. It really does feel as though Holly Black breathed life into her. There's so much more I could gush about. I devoured Book of Night in less than a week, and it was the perfect reading experience. Holly Black has taken all the stars for her adult debut.
