Staff Picks: She Eats the Night: The Night Eaters Book 1 by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda

From the writer/illustrator team that has given us Monstress comes the first book in the new trilogy, The Night Eaters.

Unreachable, chain-smoking, and all-around unpleasant Ipo is living for a few months in Hawaii with her laid-back husband, Keon. They are staying with their twins, Milly and Billy, who are both in their early twenties and are running a restaurant. Ipo has a way with plants and has grown an incredible lawn that stands in stark contrast to the creepy, empty house that sits across the street.

The character dynamics are frustrating at first but as we learn more about each member of the family, and Ipo’s connection to the house across the street, we start to see how complicated and nuanced family life can be, particularly if it involves demons.

She Eats the Night is intriguing, gory, and surprisingly funny. I can’t wait for Book 2 and I’m excited that I’ll be able to alternate these books with Monstress while I wait for the next volume in each series!
