The end of Blue Noon was not the ending I was expecting for the Midnighters series. I never know what to expect with Westerfeld, so I never have expectations, but this was not the way I thought things would go! Which is a good thing, although I will admit I was a little sad with how the long midnight went down. A tense read from start to finish I couldn’t have asked for more.
The midnighters managed to save one of their own at the end of Touching Darkness and they just might have an edge because of it when things manage to get even stranger in Bixby. The group of teenagers never thought the small Oklahoma town could get odder, but when the blue moon rises at different times during the day, they know something big is coming. And it’s not going to be good.
It’s a race against the clock, as usual, but a lot more is at stake than getting caught outside during curfew.
The creatures out in the desert are celebrating every time the midnight hour comes not at midnight, if that isn’t enough to scare the midnighters and get them to put their thinking hats on, nothing is.
