The Shadow Hour Book Review
The Shadow Hour - Melissa Grey

I find a lot that I tend to not like middle books in a trilogy, they either drag or feel a bit repetitive. I actually liked The Shadow Hour quite a bit. Its not anything new or original but I had trouble putting it down.

 

Echo and her friends, Jasper, Dorian, Rowan, Ivy and Caius are back and their world is in trouble. Echo now knows that she is the firebird and that changes everything. They have to fight their enemies to save one another and everyone else. But of course that doesn't come without a price.

 

There is of course a bit of a cliffhanger. And it definitely makes the wait for book three even longer. I am definitely curious to see how this series end, I have a feeling it could be an emotional ride.

The Girl at Midnight Book Review
The Girl at Midnight - Melissa Grey

I am re-reading a lot of series so I remember them better for the new books that have come out this year. I have to say I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as the first time around. I think the characters are a bit bland and it really isn't anything new, and I have to compare it to books like Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Throne of Glass and Red Queen which I enjoyed so much more. 

 

Echo is a thief who pickpockets people in New York City for her band of friends. Little does she know there is much more to her and the legend of the firebird then she thinks, especially when Cauis and Rowan show up. 

 

I thought Echo was a bit of a boring character. She didn't interest me much even with the romance added in. I am looking forward to seeing where the next one goes. A good fantasy for someone looking for that extra series to read.

My NetGalley Review of The Girl At Midnight. Really good book.
The Girl at Midnight - Melissa Grey

I really enjoyed this book it started out pretty slow but once it got interesting it stayed that way. I have to say while I liked the main characters of Echo and Cauis, but my favorites are Jasper, Dorian, and Ivy. I gave the book 4 1/2 stars instead of 5 due to the fact it took a bit of time for me to get into the book. I couldn't give it below that rating because once the book caught my attention and wasn't slow paced I couldn't put the book down.

 

I thought parts of the book was funny due to how much Jasper loved to tease Dorian, those two together were so awesome and so priceless. And I loved how much Ivy got into watching Jasper mess with Dorian. And that she helped Dorian even after what he did to her.

 

I loved who or what the firebird was even though I had an idea before the reveal and I was right. Cauis's sister Tanith was such a bitch, but she was right in regards that Cauis as he is right now is not a great leader. I don't want him to be awful like his sister but he needs to be tougher than what he is, his just to darn nice. 

 

I really can't wait to read book 2 coming out in a couple of weeks, and already preorder it. I want to see what happens now that the firebird is revealed. I can't wait to see more scenes between Dorian and Jasper. As well as to see what happens with Caius, Echo, and Ivy.

 

I am so happy that I got this book by the way of netgalley. And all for just agreeing to read this book and giving my honest opinion on how I felt about the book.
