CAST YOUR CHARACTERS: The Book of the Night by Pearl North





DESCRIPTION: The world of the Libyrinth has experienced a series of wrenching changes. After the Libyrarians and their longtime foes the Singers discovered their common heritage, a young healer named Po found the Lion’s Bloom, an ancient and enormously powerful artifact capable of rewriting reality.

Behind the mysteries of their shrouded past has always been the legendary Book of the Night. Sought for generations, both feared and revered, it is the key to this world of wonders. When vain, grasping Queen Thela steals the Lion’s Bloom and imperils the very reality of the world, only the Book can heal what she has rent asunder. An epic journey through strange lands, a perilous encounter in a clockwork city, and the revelation of the truth beyond reality will lead those who find the Book to a moment when their world will either be saved...or cease to exist.

Told with the grace and skill that only Pearl North can bring to the tale, The Book of the Night is a breathtaking adventure that will linger in the memory long after the final page is turned.

Tessa Thompson as HALY
Tested and tested again, this shy clerk becomes a powerful woman who will lead her people into a new era.

Rachel Hurd-Wood as CLAUDA
Her wish for adventure is answered. A lot.

Carrie-Anne Moss as SELENE
She’s been running everyone else’s errands for two books. Now it’s her turn to decide the fate of the world.

Logan Lerman as PO
Caught between what he was raised to believe and what everyone expects of him now, he will only succeed when he finds his own way.

Angelica Houston as QUEEN THELA TADAMOS
All she wants is everything.

Harry Dean Stanton as CENSOR SIBLEA
The morally ambiguous but open-minded leader of the Singers, Siblea used to torture people for a living. Now he’s reformed. Right?

Pearl North is the author of a trilogy of YA science fiction novels: Libyrinth, The Boy From Ilysies (a Norton Award Finalist), and The Book of the Night. A firm believer in human decency, she loves writing and reading about characters that transcend the limits of who they think they are and what they think is possible. She mentors graduate students in Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction MFA program, and writes in other genres under different names. A native and life-long resident of the Detroit area, she has never lived more than two miles from Woodward Avenue in her life.

    Tessa is a wonderful choice for Haly, and Harry Dean Stanton as the censor...definitely.
