The Girl at Midnight is the story of a modern girl caught in an ancient war.

Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she's ever known.

Echo is clever and daring, and at times she can be brash, but above all else she's fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it's time to act.

Legend has it that there is a way to end the conflict once and for all: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power the likes of which the world has never seen. It will be no easy task, but if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it's how to hunt down what she wants . . . and how to take it.

But some jobs aren't as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire.

3.0 The Girl at Midnight Book Review
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 Dau...

4.5 My NetGalley Review of The Girl At Midnight. Really good book.
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...

Cybils book. I think the strength of this is the set-up, and the plot which is fast-moving. I liked it more than I think I might have in a different mood, but I enjoyed the way the conflict played out.

2.0 The Girl at Midnight
On its own, without considering anything else, I enjoyed the plot and the little bit of mythology within the world. BUT, I just can’t overlook the lack of originality that was peppered throughout the whole thing. It has been said in so many reviews already, but seriously, this is too similar to Da...
