Midnight Untamed - Lara Adrian

This was super fast, but it helped that they loved each other ten years ago and were forced apart by her family. It made the fact that in less than 24 hours they were blood bonded. Not my favorite but still an enjoyable quick read.

Towers of Midnight, The Wheel of Time #13 by Brandon Sanderson and Robert Jordan
Towers of Midnight - Robert Jordan,Brandon Sanderson

If the cover art weren't a clue, Perrin takes center stage in this volume with a final confrontation with the Whitecloaks under Galad. This is something that has been brewing since 'The Eye of the World', so it was very satisfying. Perrin's and Galad's plotlines conjoining puts Morgase into an interesting position. Perrin also faces down demons of self-doubt, and a Forsaken or two with varying results. Faile and Berelain Work It Out and we can truly lay to rest the ghost of the Plotline of Doom. As a united force, Perrin's forces march towards the Last Battle.

 

Mat has reached Andor and must delay there until he either opens a letter from Verin, or he receives instructions from her. While he waits he strikes a deal with Elayne for Andor to start building Aludra's dragons. Elayne also has to get Queenie on Perrin for awhile. Long standing darkfriend/Black Ajah threats come to a head and some rash decisions are made. Mat is awesome, and less problematic than he was in 'The Gathering Storm'. As with Perrin, a long-standing animosity - in Mat's case with the Snakes and Foxes - is dealt with on a rescue mission with Thom and Noal. 

 

Egwene and a united White Tower face down the lingering Forsaken threat - and something else - and take to the World of Dreams, with some unwitting assistance from Perrin engaged in battle with another old nemesis. The White Tower is whole and can prepare for the Last Battle, but now it must try to decide how they solve a problem like the Dragon Reborn. 

 

Rand still holds on to his new zen-like state and heads to Arad Doman and then Saldaea to take care of unfinished business, and make amends. With the help of Min he begins to form a plan that could make the coming confrontation with the Dark One the last. Meanwhile Aviendha sets out for Rhuidean to become a Wise One. There she experiences the past of the Aiel, but is given something else, also. A vision of the future that changes much.

 

And then, at the Black Tower (FINALLY, we get a picture of what's going on), some people are troubled by the constant echoing laughter and rubbing of hands. Androl, a Dedicated with a bit part in 'Winter's Heart', becomes the central figure there along with Pevara of the Red Ajah. 

 

As with 'The Gathering Storm', 'Towers of Midnight' (I don't fully understand the name) is clearing away old plotlines and advancing timelines so that all of our main characters are in sync at the start of the Last Battle. Sanderson does the best job that any writer could have, frankly. There are some reunions that we don't get to see and a whole lot of unanswered questions - but this is the penultimate novel we got and its pretty damn good.

Audiobook Review: What Happens at Midnight by Laura Chapman (Author), Kay Heart (Narrator)
What Happens at Midnight - Laura Chapman

 

 

What Happens at MidnightWhat Happens at Midnight by Laura Chapman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Audiobook ReviewWhat Happens at Midnight by Laura Chapman (Author), Kay Heart (Narrator)

What if your heart was stuck on repeat and had to relive the same heartache all over again? Will there ever be the chance to finally get love right? Chapman will most certainly own a piece of any heart with What Happens at Midnight. Natalie is a combination of hopeless romantic and heartbroken dreamer. When fate presents her with the opportunity to get her happy ending, nothing will keep her from taking a chance on forever. From the charming dialogue, captivating story and angst filled narration Chapman and Heart ring in the new year with a bit help from the ghost of Christmas past and the magic of a Happy New Year.

Midnight Magic
Midnight Magic: Paranormal Romance - Ann Gimpel,Angela Kelly,Fiona Jayde

I have mixed emotions about this one, mainly because of Cassie (Cassionetta). On one hand I sympathize with her, because I could see how easy it would be to fall for a guy when one has some self-esteem issues and that person only shows a certain side. On the other hand, I wanted her to buck up and take action, even when it meant asking for help and admitting her mistake. She does, but I found her hard to like. I also would have liked Jeremy to declare his feelings sooner than he did.

Interesting story, kept me reading.
Midnight Girl - Nora LeDuc

This story held me from the beginning. Lisa wanted to protect Travis, and Travis wanted to protect Lisa, but neither truly relied on each other in the beginning. Doubts about their past relationship stood between them. The journey to the end was fraught with ups and downs, and was worth the read.

I received an ARC through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.
