The third and final book in New York Times bestselling author Scott Westerfeld’s Midnighters series.

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.

As they scramble for answers, the Midnighters 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 the Midnighters can find a way to stop them.

Blue Noon is the third and final book in the Midnighters trilogy, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Uglies series.

Scott Westerfeld is the author of ten books for young adults, including Peeps, The Last Days, and the Midnighters trilogy. He was born in Texas in 1963, is married to the Hugo-nominated writer Justine Larbalestier, and splits his time between New York and Sydney. His latest book is Extras, the fourth in the bestselling Uglies series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pick up these books Blue Noon picks up right after the events in Touching Darkness. Our midnighters are faced with the bigest threat of all. Blue time is on the verge of swallowing all of Bixby and even the world. This book has an "end of the world feel" and Scott Westerfeld managed to deliver. When I picked up the book I thought that whatever character development there was, was done during the first two books. I wasn't expecting much to change but I was wrong. I was surprised by Rex. In Touching Darkness he got that close to becoming one of the darklings. Now in Blue Noon we see the effects of such a close encounter with them and I was amazed by how strangely addicted I became to Rex. He became multidimensional and nothing like his old self, the boring and safe Rex he used to be. Through this book we got also the chance to learn more about the lore and the mechanics behind the secret time. All of our midnighters get to test their powers to their maximum and see that even though they thought they learned everything they could to fight the darklings they still didn't see it coming... the ending. When I finished this book I was so mad that I couldn't think anything else for this book expect of how Scott Westerfeld ended this story. As I got invested into the characters and read their stories, I wanted for them to have good endings, happy endings. Scott Westerfeld managed to do that but with a sting to it. His ending was bittersweet leaving you with the impression that there might be more to this story. Overall I loved it even though I was shocked by the ending of the story. Hopefully there is more to the Midnighters and I will definitely be picking up more books from this author.

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.
