Synopsis from Goodreads:

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 . . .

Amari and the Night Brothers is quite simply incredible! I don’t remember the last time I loved a sci-fi this much. I loved everything about it, the characters, the Bureau, the magic and the WEREDRAGON!! Yes, there’s a weredragon.

Amari is such a brilliant protagonist, she’s brave, loyal and will stop at nothing to find her brother and bring him home safely. I could not get enough of her friendship with Elsie, their friendship was one of my favourite parts of the book. It’s so genuine and heartwarming.

The plot and character development is phenomenal, I didn’t see half the plot twists coming, especially the end! That ending was incredible, I tore through the last third of the book, I just couldn’t put it down. The world Alston has created is stunning, I could lose myself in it for days. I’m impatiently waiting for the next book, I need it now!

Amari and the Night Brothers is one of the best books I’ve read in so long, it’s full to the brim magic and wonder. Add it to your TBRs, you don’t want to sleep on this one. It’s also being adapted into a movie, something I’m ridiculously excited about!
