The Midnight Society - Book Review

Summary:

Witness protection has a protocol for dealing with every situation—except magic.

Fifteen-year-old Cate’s life has been monitored since her new identity was created five years ago. She’s spent countless hours learning how to deal with potential threats and dangerous situations. None of which is any use when everyone around her is suddenly frozen like statues at the bus stop.

As Cate attempts to make sense of the frightening scene, a mysterious group of teenagers appear out of thin air. They are intrigued she’s not affected, but focus on completing their deadly mission, using baffling powers before they vanish again.

When the group seeks her out the next day, Cate is drawn into a world filled with sorcery and time travel. After she accidentally brings a cheerleader back from the dead, her incredible powers are revealed. Cate is shocked to discover she has a pivotal role to play in a centuries-old battle between two mortal enemies which threatens to destroy her entire world.

With the distinction between good and evil blurred, she’s faced with the excruciating choice of which side to join. Cate can save her family or protect thousands of people from death. She can’t do both. Will she risk destroying innocent lives to save the ones she loves?

Review:

I must admit, I was a bit hesitant to start reading this book because time travel always confuses me, whether it is in print or in visual media. If it is not done well, I will not enjoy it and that can be rather upsetting when all other elements are fantastic. That was not the case with this book, at all.

The way that time travel was handled in The Midnight Society was perhaps the best way I have EVER seen it done. Not once did I find myself going back and wondering if an event had happened in the past, present, or future, which I was very impressed with. Kudos to you, Rhonda Sermon; that’s practically impossible for me.

I loved how fast-paced this book was. It kept me wanting more, needing to know what would happen next. The characters were all interesting and very well written. The relationships between every character were all so different indwell thought out. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this book, given my typical feelings and confusion towards time travel.

I give The Midnight Society 4/5 stars. You can purchase it from Amazon by clicking on the book’s cover image below:
