Summary of the Book:
HOW MUCH IS A LIFE WORTH? WHEN THE WORLD DEMANDS AN ANSWER WE ALL SCRAMBLE TO FIND ONE.
My name is Midnight Thunder. The town crazy person; the Demon Eyes girl. The girl whose existence rests on a curse that saves her from death yet sets her on a path to an inevitable end.
I live in a world full of magic: spells, curses, enchantments, and everything in between. It would be a whimsical place, but, like anything, it’s imperfect. Little by little, my own country has begun to fall apart beneath its own mistakes. The queen’s gone a little bit more than mad, our military has collapsed, and of course, the only way to break the deadly curse at the root of it all is to sacrifice… me.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I remember when I got this book in the mail and held it in my hands for the first time. I did not know what I was holding in my hands. When I did finally sit down to read it I could not pull myself away from the book. The characters have such depth and clear drives. I don’t normally pick the main character as my favorite but Midnight is an exception to my rule. The worldbuilding in this novel is an entity in and of itself. The story was not something I recall reading before and it made me want to finish it in one setting which I did. I enjoyed reading the three different POVs in the book. It gave me a better look into the world of Galvition. I would love to read more books by this authors. I want to say more about this book, but I don’t want to give away too much. It is something that needs to be experienced.
My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
