Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Blue Noon by Scott Westerfeld is the third and final book from The Midnighters series. It was great, but I found that it dragged on a bit with repeated thoughts. Compared to the second book, this one wasn't as exciting. The ending was somewhat sad but a good ending, since being a Midnighter comes with a lot of responsibility. I wish more was revealed about the main characters' future lives, but I guess since they are merely teenagers, we cannot know so far ahead in the future. Just when everything seems to have gone back to normal, odd things start happening. The blue moon starts appearing randomly during the middle of the day and the darklings seem to be celebrating this event. There seems to be a rip between the normal time and the secret hour that seems to be spreading. Will the Midnighters ever find a way to stop it? Or will the old darklings finally feed after waiting centuries? Overall, the Midnighters is a great Young Adult series with creative ideas that can be enjoyed by anyone over the age of fourteen. Fourteen because there are words used in here that I wouldn't want younger children reading. 4/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite One In the Series. This was the perfect book to sum up the trilogy, it had so much action and finally the adventure thickined with more slithers, romance, and something unexpected. The book was slow at the beggining, but as it got closer to the end, the adventure took an unexpected turn, that made it that much more exciting. Rex, Melissa, Jonathan, Dess and Jessica got stronger and closer together in this book, they had to work together to stop the worst thing imaginable to the Blue Time. The ending left me shocked and sad, This was a great series, I never wanted the five chracters to end their riviting adventure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific! Absolutely Awesome! one of the best books you can ever read! Well.. i finished this book in under 2 days. It was seriously the BEST book in the whole series. I couldn't go to bed at night, i'd stare at my ceiling thinking about what the Midnighters of Bixby Oklahoma were doing. The only problem..? I got really attached to the books. The ending was probably the worst part because you wonder what happens. Its truely a book that makes you think.
