Amari and the Night Brothers – Review


Every so often you read a book that feels so momentous that you can barely describe to others why they should read it. Luckily, Lily was able to articulate how much she loved Amari and the Night Brothers by B.B Alston and wrote the review you’ll find below.

All I can say is from the very beginning we were hooked and unable to put the book down. Alston has a remarkable ability that makes you insist on turning the page and when you get to the end of one chapter, you can’t resist reading another, and another! Amari and the Night Brothers is due become a major movie starring Marsai Martin and we are so excited to see Amari on the big screen one day!


Amari and the Night Brothers is a spectacular story full of plot twists with a surprise at every corner. This amazing story had me hooked from the very first page. One thing that really stood out to me was the amount of imagination put into the story and how what you least expect is waiting for you on the next page. Amari left me wishing there were just a few more pages of her epic adventure because the only thing I didn’t enjoy was the fact that it had to end!

I used to believe that Harry Potter was the best imaginative world to ever be created and shared through storytelling, but after reading B. B. Alston’s debut novel, I’ve changed my mind. Amari and the Night Brothers is a masterpiece that must be read by many. It will be pretty hard to top this start to a new wow-factor series. I recommend this glorious tale to all Harry Potter fans because this is truly legendary.

Follow Amari through the show-stopping quest her magical abilities lead her through.

Will Amari find her long lost brother, make a few friends and master her magical powers?

Read this story to find out.

– Lily (age 10).



An epic middle grade supernatural adventure series, soon to be a major movie starring Marsai Martin. Perfect for readers aged 8+ and fans of Percy Jackson, Nevermoor and Men in Black!

Amari Peters knows three things.

Her big brother Quinton has gone missing.
No one will talk about it.
His mysterious job holds the secret …

So when Amari gets an invitation to the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs, she’s certain this is her chance to find Quinton. But first she has to get her head around the new world of the Bureau, where mermaids, aliens and magicians are real, and her roommate is a weredragon.

Amari must compete against kids who’ve known about the supernatural world their whole lives, and when each trainee is awarded a special supernatural talent, Amari is given an illegal talent – one that the Bureau views as dangerous.

With an evil magician threatening the whole supernatural world, and her own classmates thinking she is the enemy, Amari has never felt more alone. But if she doesn’t pass the three tryouts, she may never find out what happened to Quinton …
