The Midnight Hour
In The Midnight Hour by Benjamin Read and Laura Trinder, we find a thrilling story that jogs imaginations and weaves a wonderfully adventurous tale that leads Emily to the Midnight Hour. Emily and her companion Hog, a “hedgepig,” and her friend Tarkus have to keep the Noctorne from destroying the Great Working and stealing all its magic for herself while attempting to save her parents and figure out her life.
Emily stumbles into the Midnight Hour misinformed and afraid while looking for her missing parents, she finds the people of the Night Post strange and (some of them) difficult. After escaping the Night Post she runs into a young police officer who tries to arrest her until she tells him of the creature that brought her there. He doesn’t believe her until the monster that Emily is calling “the bear” comes after them. The police officer, known as Postlewhite, is knocked unconscious while “protecting his charge,” Emily. In a turn of events, a Pooka known for bringing an omen to the night folk comes out and saves them from the Bear and his Colleague.
This story tells of an entirely different world with different people. The characters have stunning attributes and personalities. This story takes its readers on an adventure of a lifetime that you can only hope to dive into when looking for a good book.
