Secrets at Midnight
Secrets at Midnight (Psy-Changeling Novel, A) - Nalini Singh

Bastien (one of Mercy's brothers) scents his mate, but gets frustrated when her scent vanishes. Kirby, is an orphan, having grown up in the foster care system. She moved to CA and is a kindergarten teacher.
I enjoyed this one. I loved how Bastien wasn't overpowering and how slow he went with Kirby. I also really liked Kirby and how strong she was. Enjoyable read. I love, love this world!

Midnight Secrets by Ella Grace
Midnight Secrets - Ella Grace

Being a fan of the Last Chance Series, written by Ella Grace’s alter ego Christy Reece, this was a true disappointment.

I didn’t like any of it. Nothing.

It was so slow, any slower and it would’ve been moving backwards. The initial backstory of the teenager romance slowed it even more, while all those chapters could’ve been spared .

I didn’t care about the characters, not in the past nor in the present. There was no depth, no personality, no emotion. They were one-dimensional and bland, and I just didn’t feel or see the supposed love between them. In the past they dated because she saw him as some kind of hero and he felt she was the only one who accepted him. Novelty, really. In the present, I felt nothing else drew them together but misplaced guilt, anger, and that heartbreak from so long ago that didn’t exactly scream realistic to me.
Everything was blown out of proportions, and the narrative style (with its incessant repetitions about how he hurt her, how she barely recovered, how that day ten years ago when he didn’t show up shaped them both, blah blah blah) didn’t help one iota. Also, the conflict, if one could call it that, dragged on for too long, and the final revelation was more laughable than anything else.
I suspected the depression angle, but once the whole truth was revealed, I just rolled my eyes and went…”Give me a break!” Too melodramatic, too overcomplicated, and overblown.

The suspense could’ve been the saving grace of this book, but failed to inject some speed into the proceedings and failed to deliver the punch the prologue hinted at. In the end there was no real suspense, no real danger, no portending of evil, nothing foreboding or threatening, and the big reveal fell flat and felt very anticlimactic.

Review: Secrets at Midnight (Psy-Changeling #12.5) by Nalini Singh
Secrets at Midnight (Psy-Changeling Novel, A) - Nalini Singh

Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures 

 

Secrets at Midnight 

 Psy-Changeling #12.5  
 Nalini Singh  
 Paranormal Romance - Novella  
 InterMix  
 August 2nd 2016  
 eBook  
 99  
 

 

A changeling will do anything to find and keep his mate in this smoldering story from New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh. 

 

Bastien Smith is frustrated. A changeling male should be able to track his mate anywhere—through fire and hail, snow and rain. But he keeps finding and losing her scent in the city streets, ever since he first became aware of it two weeks earlier, when the elusive fragrance awakened the leopard within him... 

 

Then Bastien is suddenly confronted with his prey. Kirby is an all-too-human woman who wants Bastien just as much as he wants her. But he can’t deny what his body and senses are telling him: there is a raging chaos inside of Kirby that he doesn’t understand, secrets that whisper awake at midnight and cause her terrible pain. If they’re to have any chance of forever, then he must solve the mystery that is Kirby...

** Originally read in Night Shift **

 

We are taken back into the Psy-Changeling world in Secrets At Midnight by Nalini Singh.

 

I was pulled in from the moment it starts to the very end. I love this world and can never get enough. 

 

Bastien is a leopard changeling, so we get to see some of our old friends. He is intelligent, witty, and a little wicked. Loved him. Kirby is human or is she? She has not had a great life so far, but things are about to get interesting. 

 

The relationship development and growth is lovely and to see Kirby finally learn what love means, heartwarming. 

 

You don’t have to have read any of the Psy-Changeling books to pick this up. Secrets At Midnight gives you a nice taste into the world of the Changelings and what it means to find a mate. I highly recommend picking up Nalini Singh’s books.

 

Rated: 5 Secret Stars

Secrets at Midnight by Nalini Singh
Secrets at Midnight (Psy-Changeling Novel, A) - Nalini Singh

Bastien Smith has been in agony for the last two weeks. He knows he's found his mate, he's scented her, but the scent is so elusive, not even his leopard can follow it, pinpoint it down. Because she smells funny. Sometimes like a changeling, sometimes like a human. He's been roaming the city streets every night, yet nothing. Then his mother releases him from her matchmaking party to drive a Pack elder home, and there she is. On Pack territory, on the older woman's front steps...His mate.


This was yet another great story with engaging characters, nearly flawless pacing, enough cuteness and sexiness to be able to sell it, and a slight mystery to boot, involving Kirby and her "nature".
I loved Bastien and Kirby, the chemistry between them, their nascent bond, the romance, and the playfulness. Beautifully written.

Review

 

A wonderful morsel of a short romance. So goood.

 

A must read for fans of the series.

 

The hero is grand and the heroine does a great job holding her own. Great world building and a nice little mystery.
