The Midnighters of Bixby, Oklahoma, know that their town is full of secrets. These five teenagers are the only ones who know about the mysterious hour at midnight when the world freezes, except for them and the creatures that inhabit the darkness.
But they do not know why earlier generations of Midnighters all disappeared, or why they are now the only Midnighters in town. As they learn more about the secret hour's twists and turns, they uncover terrifying mysteries woven into the very fabric of Bixby's history, and a conspiracy that touches both the midnight hour and the world of daylight.
At the same time, the Midnighters' own secrets start to emerge, including some that were never meant to come to light, changing the fragile dynamics among the five.
This time Jessica Day is not the only Midnighter in mortal danger, and if the group can't find a way to come together, they could lose one of their own — forever.
I'll admit, I often read the second book in a series with some trepidation. It can be good, or it can really kind of stink. Thankfully, this book was one I rather enjoyed. The issue that I had with the first book in the series (that we didn't really get into the character's heads much) was resolved here with some more detail added to their personalities and lives, which I liked. I found myself wishing the book were longer, too, as I wanted to see more of the world and situations the characters were living in. I have the last book in the series on request at the library and am hoping I can snag it sometime soon!
