Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The darklings will hunt once again...

The secret hour when time freezes arrives every night at midnight in Bixby, Oklahoma. It's a dangerous time, when five teenagers are the only humans awake and dark creatures crawl out of the shadows, but at least the midnight hour is regular and predictable.

Until suddenly, the blue time comes...in the middle of the day.

The noise of school stops. Cheerleaders are frozen in midair, teachers brought to a standstill. Everything is the haunted blue color of the midnight hour.

The Midnighters can't understand what's happening, but as they scramble for answers, they discover that the walls between the secret hour and real time are crumbling. Soon the dark creatures will have a chance to feed after centuries of waiting, unless these five teenagers can find a way to stop them.

A desperate race against time, a mind-blowing mystery of paranormal logic, a tale of ancient evil and spine-chilling sacrifice: Blue Noon is the exhilarating third volume in the Midnighters series by acclaimed author Scott Westerfeld.

Review:

"[A] thrilling conclusion to the trilogy....A powerful climax smoothly ties together the complexities of this original and well-drawn world." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Fast paced and full of suspense." Children's Literature

Review:

"Westerfeld does a good job crafting fast-paced suspense novels with hardly any deadwood in the text. Also the books depict teens who have special abilities, which appeals to readers who typically want to be set apart from the crowd." VOYA

Synopsis:

This third book of Westerfield's acclaimed series is a tale of pulse-pounding danger, electrifying power, and a race against time that may require the ultimate sacrifice.

Wendy S., May 18, 2008 (view all comments by Wendy S.)
This was a bitter-sweet way to end the triology. The story is full of excitement and adventure, but also real issues that we all have to be deal with: family relationships, the desire to escape, etc. Not an ideal ending, but possibly the only one that makes sense.
