Nobody is safe in the secret hour.
Strange things happen at midnight in the town of Bixby, Oklahoma.
For one secret hour each night, the town belongs to the dark creatures that haunt the shadows. Only a small group of people know about the secret hour — only they are free to move about the midnight time.
These people call themselves Midnighters. Each one has a different power that is strongest at midnight: Seer, Mindcaster, Acrobat, Polymath. For years the Midnighters and the dark creatures have shared the secret hour, uneasily avoiding one another. All that changes when the new girl with an unmistakable midnight aura appears at Bixby High School.
Jessica Day is not an outsider like the other Midnighters. She acts perfectly normal in every way. But it soon becomes clear that the dark creatures sense a hidden power in Jessica . . . and they’re determined to stop her before she can use it.
A story of courage, shadowy perils, and unexpected destiny, the secret hour is the first volume of the mesmerizing Midnighters trilogy by acclaimed author Scott Westerfeld.
This book is amazing!! It literally had me hooked, I was so upset when it ended but I can not wait to read the next one.
Jessica Day moves to the small town of Bixby she discovers that she is a Midnighter; someone who stays awake in the secret hour. She has trouble as the darklings, creatures that are after her.
It kept me on edge as I wasn’t sure if any of the characters would survive each secret hour, and I was curious to find out what exactly Jessica Day was capable off, and why the darklings were so scared of her.
When it came to an end it had me wanting more, especialy the last thought Melissa hears.
