Blue Noon by Scott Westerfeld

Review:- This book goes straight into adventure. Like I said in the review of the first book, I've noticed that the first book of a series is always not as good nor as exciting as it always has to introduce the readers to the world created by the author and it's characters, but once the first book is completed I've noticed it's much more fast paced after that. Hence, just be patient with the first book and if it's got a plot that's good, persevere with the rest in the series. So lectures aside...

The Midnighters are just getting over their last adventure of saving one of them from being turned into a half-ling when in the middle of the day, whilst at a pep rally the Midnight hour arrives. In search for answers, they find another human, unfrozen and a non-Midnighter, stuck in the midnight hour. They save the girl, but in doing so they soon unfold the answers to their questions.

The Midnight hour has a physical hole, one where the midnight world and the normal world coincides, allowing humans to be within it, unfrozen, which would mean that Darklings are able to hunt them. As if that's not bad enough, it seems that the hole will remain open once a year for 25 hours, leaving Darklings with an "all you can eat humans" for 25 hours. The Midnighters need to find a stop, a way to seal this hole, to keep the Darklings existence to the one midnight hour.

Like I said this book went straight to adventure but I personally didn't like the ending, there was no happy ending for the Midnighters but I'm unsure whether there are going to be other books to the series, so maybe that's not the ending after all. I'm really amazed that despite Westerfeld's unrealistic created world, I still enjoyed reading it.
