The five teenage Midnighters of Bixby, Oklahoma, thought they understood the secret midnight hour—until one morning when time freezes in the middle of the day.
The noise of school stops. Cheerleaders are frozen in midair. Everything is the haunted blue color of the midnight hour.
As the Midnighters scramble for answers, they discover that the walls between the secret hour and real time are crumbling. Soon the dark creatures will break through to feed at last . . . unless these five teenagers can find a way to stop them.
I was really quite sad to see this series come to a close. I rather enjoyed it! It's not my favorite Westerfeld series (I am partial to Uglies), but it was a great set of books with a great concept. And honestly, I didn't see that ending coming At All. It's actually kind of stuck with me over the last couple of weeks since I read this, popping into my mind at times. It was, well, interesting. I don't want to spoil it for those who may not have read it, but for those who have, what did you think?
Also, there's always an element of sadness when I reach the end of a book where I've invested time with the characters over several novels. I don't really want it to end. But, that is the sign of a book, though, right?
Anyone else read these? Thoughts? Buehler?
