His father could find what was lost. His father knew when someone was going to die. His father had talked to him about the dead who rode in on the wind. The dead travel fast.
Gaspar is six years old when the Order first come for him.
For years, they have exploited his father's ability to commune with the dead and the demonic, presiding over macabre rituals where the unwanted and the disappeared are tortured and executed, sacrificed to the Darkness. Now they want a successor.
Nothing will stop the Order, nothing is beyond them. Surrounded by horrors, can Gaspar break free?
Spanning the brutal decades of Argentina's military dictatorship and its aftermath, Our Share of Night is a haunting, thrilling novel of broken families, cursed inheritances, and the sacrifices a father will make to help his son escape his destiny.
‘Reader, beware! Our Share of Night is a novel so disquieting, so unsettling I could neither put it down, nor read it late at night. Enriquez’s short stories had already made me a fan for life — her novel is going to haunt me for the rest of my life’ Kelly Link, author of White Cat, Black Dog and Get in Trouble, finalist for the Pulitzer Prize
‘A singular, soul-rattling novel, with urgent moral questions about greed, injustice, and inheritance at its core. In Our Share of Night, the relentless quest for power is not just over a people and a country, but earthly life itself. With surprises at every turn, Mariana Enriquez’s terrifying, lush, blood-soaked epic masterfully uses the occult to depict unspeakable brutality, political oppression, and the tragedy of Argentina’s disappeared to devastating effect, while powerfully exploring the lengths a parent will go to protect their child. I’ve never read anything like it and I’ll never forget my time in Enriquez’s mesmerizing world’ Jessamine Chan, New York Times bestselling author of The School for Good Mothers
‘Enriquez is a masterful world builder. And the one she creates here devastates. This engrossing mixture of supernatural horror and intimate storytelling will leave an indelible but instructive mark on readers’ Sergio de la Pava, author of A Naked Singularity
‘Our Share of Night is epic and intimate, lyrical and brutal, horrifying and defiantly hopeful, and one of the best novels of the 21st century. I'm going to press this book into the hands of everyone I know and dare them to open the door to its Other Place’ Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Pallbearers Club
