Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.

But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.

Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother's shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon's darkest secret.
They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.

During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.


"Vibrant world building, heart-pounding action, and a cast of characters so real and vulnerable they'll steal your heart make 27 HOURS an unforgettable read. This is the queer science-fantasy epic you've been waiting for." - Claire Legrand, acclaimed author of Some Kind of Happiness and Winterspell

"An exhilarating ride from the very first page, filled with fiercely original monsters and a cast as enthralling as they diverse—27 HOURS is everything readers could want from a space epic. And more." - A.R. Kahler, author of The Immortal Circus series

"A dynamic cast of teens drives this exciting and topical story of ecology, colonialism, and resistance." -Kate Elliott, New York Times bestselling author of Court of Fives and Cold Magic

"Tristina Wright has masterfully crafted a world that's as fascinating as it is dangerous. From the terrifying monsters to a refreshingly inclusive cast of characters to the bonds of friendship at the heart of this story, it has everything you could possibly want. If you're looking for your next favorite space saga, look no further."- Tara Sim, author of Timekeeper

"Tristina Wright presents a world that will at once thrill and horrify readers and make the most vulnerable of us feel unambiguously welcome and valid." Meredith Russo, author of critically acclaimed If I Was Your Girl

"Tristina Wright's 27 HOURS combines science fiction and fantasy against the backdrop of a world so vivid you can smell it. A whirlwind of action and romance surround its diverse cast as they fight against a ticking clock to survive and save their home from destruction. Readers who loved Laini Taylor's DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE or Brian K. Vaughn's SAGA will be on the edge of their seats at the end of Wright's first entry in THE NIGHTSIDE SAGA." -Alexandra Duncan, award-winning author of Salvage, Sound, and Blight.

"A big, badass space epic with a truly inclusive cast of teens who have strong friendships, high-stakes love lives, and a central place in the adventures of the cosmos. Wright carves out a gorgeous, complex future world and brings it to life, hour by action-packed hour." Amy Rose Capetta, author of Entangled, Unmade, Echo After Echo, and The Brilliant Death

"27 Hours is an amazing new addition to YA sci fi, featuring a cast of characters you'll love. A tale of monsters, the moon, and fighting for what's right." - Laura Lam, author of Pantomime & False Hearts

Wow. 27 hours was an intricate, masterfully plotted read. I loved the unique world of the Sahara moon. It was so rich, with every detail from energy generation to food to housing and protection explored. I loved how the characters knew some things about their earthly heritage but that the Sahara... ...more

As one of Tristina Wright's beta readers, I've had the honor and privilege of seeing this story in multiple stages. It has come a long way since the first version I read, and there have been some fundamental plot changes along with little tweaks here and there. But in every form its taken, this s... ...more

By Eric May 24, 2017

From the diverse, inclusive cast to the non-stop intense action to the visually lush world-building, Tristina Wright's debut has everything I look for in a great YA novel. And I truly can't wait for her second book.

I was lucky enough to read this early and you guys, it is everything you dreamed of.

Someone flagged this review so yes, I did receive an early copy from the author but not in exchange for a review. I beta read this and worked on this as a freelancer. ...more

By Laurie October 14, 2016

27 HOURS by Tristina Wright has everything I could ever want in a YA scifi novel – a visually stunning foreign planet, human space colonies, a fascinating indigenous alien race (LOVE that horns figure into the alien hierarchy), SPACE DRAGONS (with 6 legs!), and action that starts right up and doe... ...more

By Ava August 15, 2017

100000/5 stars. Because of course.

I have a new favorite book.

27 Hours is a sweeping, gorgeous sci-fi about friendship and family and relationships (both romantic and platonic) that I wholeheartedly loved. The worldbuilding is excellently done, and I want to live on the moon of Sahara on which 27... ...more

By S.R. April 28, 2017

Representation so good I'm going to hand sell this to everyone who walks into my store. I love seeing myself represented in books.

I've said it before - I don't like sci-fi. But I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book and had heard amazing things about the diversity, so I read it. And it's become one of my favorite books ever.

By Mackenzie July 16, 2017

I was beyond amazed with this stunning debut novel by Wright; when I picked up the arc at BEA2017 I was a little reluctant to start it, but as it was my most anticipated signing of the expo I delved into it as the first of the many arcs I'd picked up. And I am so glad I did. It was fabulous, from... ...more

By Jo July 10, 2017

Worth waiting in line forever at BookCon 2017 for an ARC

I already had a ton of hype going into this novel, where I had the slight trepidation of me ruining it with my own hype.

Hype status was achieved. 27 Hours tells the story of Rumor, Dahlia, Nyx, Braeden, Jude, and other friends as they race a... ...more

By Jade July 16, 2017

RATING: * * * * *

WHERE TO BUY: You can pre-order from all good bookshops probably. Or if you can't find it, raise hell.

Thank you to my gorgeous CP Kelly for sending me this ARC from BookCon! 


You know there are books with so much hype, and so many "OMG I lov... ...more

By Brandi July 04, 2017

This is not really my genre of choice ... but boy am I glad I gave this book a chance. Every main character is LGBT+, and there is even an ace main character. That bears repeating: AN ACE MAIN CHARACTER!! One girl is deaf, there are POC, and there's even an agender character. It's odd at first to... ...more

By Aja June 30, 2017

Absolutely fantastic. I don't normally read sci-fi (just not my genre) but I loved every second of this book!

About the author

Tristina Wright

Tristina Wright is a blue-haired bisexual with anxiety and opinions. She’s also possibly a mermaid, but no one can get confirmation. She fell in love with science fiction and fantasy at a young age and frequently got caught writing in class instead of paying attention. She enjoys worlds with monsters and kissing and monsters kissing. She married a nerd who can build computers and make the sun shine with his smile. Most days, she can be found drinking coffee from her favorite chipped mug and making up more stories for her wombfruit, who keep life exciting and unpredictable.
