Midnighters #1: The Secret Hour

The Secret Hour

I’m hooked on Scott Westerfeld books. I know they are written for young adults but I find them captivating.

I enjoyed Uglies/Pretties/Specials so much that I sought out his other titles.

I just finished Midnighters: The Secret Hour. It is a trilogy about a small town in Oklahoma, where time stands still at the stroke of midnight for one hour. Five high school students, who all happened to be born exactly at midnight, can walk freely among this frozen world. But so can dark, dangerous creatures of the night. These students each have a gift which arms them against the darklings.

This book wasn’t scary as much as it was creepy. I was reading it late at night and found myself getting really creeped out. I’m going to order the other two books in this series.

Have you read the Midnighters?
