Black Night Falling
Teri Terry author

Teri Terry’s award-winning debut trilogy – Slated, Fractured and Shattered – established her as the queen of the teen thriller. Teri is also the author of Mind Games and Book of Lies, and her most recent work is the Dark Matter trilogy. Her books have been translated into sixteen languages and have won many prizes at home and abroad.

Past careers have included scientist, lawyer, optometrist and, in England, various jobs in schools, libraries and an audiobook charity. She has now made her home in the Buckinghamshire Chilterns (where the Slated trilogy is set) but Teri’s love of travel continues, and research for her novels has recently taken her to Dartmoor (Book of Lies) and Shetland (Dark Matter).

Book Review

this is a really good book to get lost in

I absolutely loved this book an all its twists and turns; this really is a good book to get lost in. The story is told from the three perspectives of the main characters, which I think creates a brilliantly well-told story, and the focus on the climate crisis makes the book all the more realistic. Underneath the main plot, there is a warning: if we do not act now, something like this could very well be in store for us and our planet in the very near future.

I would recommend this book for teenagers right through to adults. This book is excellent and delivers on two points: a wonderful, compelling story that raises of awareness of the very real danger caused by with climate change.
