Touching Darkness: Midnighters #2 (Midnighters #02)by Scott Westerfeld
Synopses & Reviews
Bixby, Oklahoma, is full of secrets.
As the Midnighters search for the truth about the secret hour, they uncover terrifying mysteries woven into the very fabric of Bixby's history, and a conspiracy that touches the world of daylight.
This time Jessica Day is not the only Midnighter in mortal danger, and if the group can't find a way to come together, they could lose one of their own...forever.
"[A] suspenseful sequel....Despite a too-sudden conclusion, this powerful page-turner is compelling as it pits heroes against unspeakable evil both human and supernatural." Kirkus Reviews
"Far scarier and much more convincing than The Secret Hour, Touching Darkness combines science, horror, and history in a well-crafted tale." School Library Journal
"[An] excellent sequel....
As they continue to battle evil creatures living in an hour hidden at midnight, Jessica and her new friends learn about Bixby, Oklahoma's shadowy past and uncover a deadly conspiracy that reaches beyond the secret hour.
