Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bixby, Oklahoma, is full of secrets.
Some come out at midnight.
Some should stay hidden.

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.

Review:

"[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

Review:

"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

Review:

"[An] excellent sequel....[T]eens who like fantasy, magic, horror, adventure, or anycombination will be drawn to realistic characters in a complex and changing world in which only they know what is really happening." VOYA

Synopsis:

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.

Wendy S., May 18, 2008 (view all comments by Wendy S.)
When I finished the first book I just couldn't wait to read the next one. Westerfeld does an amazing job of picking up this book where the first one leaves off. I was quite impressed at the fast-paced action and the quick thinking by the characters. Not an hour is wasted as the events unfold, and I don't regret a moment of reading it, even if it had to happen during the regular 24 hours.
