Genre: NA Paranormal Fantasy
A past shrouded in darkness.
A mission that can mean the difference between life and death.
One week to find the answers they need.
With the memories of her historical love for the Soul Broker who was once commissioned to harvest her soul, eradicated from her mind, Daya must embark on a perilous journey through dangerous territory to find those who might shed some light into the mystery that surrounds them. But what she uncovers along the way may prove too daunting for her to come to terms with.
Trapped in a loop she can’t get out of, Daya’s only tool for survival is trusting Mason. But will betrayal be a determining factor when they both have something to gain by giving up on each other?
NOTE: This book is the continuation of the short story featured in the anthology, Blood in the Shadows. Midnight picks up right where Shadows left off
The demon growls in frustration, shaking the wounded hand as if to clear it of pain. His midnight eyes glance up at me with undisguised menace.
“Hunter,” he manages to growl.
I pay attention to his face, spotting a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth and two sunken eyes with dark circles underneath, and a jaw that juts forward in an abnormal manner as he glares down at me. He’s ominous and pissed off. Not a good combination.
“Get out of here, Dex,” I shout at my informant, not once ungluing my eyes from the figure five feet from me.
“Daya.” The demon’s lips curve up into the most sinister grin I’ve ever seen. “The fallen Angel.” He laughs, but the gesture lacks mirth. “You know what I find ironic?”
I hold off on replying, not really interested in anything he has to say.
“The hunter has become the hunted.” He closes and opens his fist, making his discomfort apparent.
He knows who wants me dead. This has my attention.
Review for Midnight by Kristy Centeno
This is a complex story of humans….maybe… demons, angels, soul harvesters and more.
The Prologue discusses a time long long ago. Then the story begins in modern times. Mason and his girlfriend feel like they known each other forever (that’s pretty accurate) but they also think they’ve just met. (Memory wipes?).
What they do know is lots of creatures want to kill them. And people/creatures could die.
While being well written and interesting, I must state a big objection to the ending, or lack of one. It has the sharpest cliffhanger I’ve ever read. There was no closure, no answers, no ending what-so-ever. You might wish to buy the next book before you read this one. I was very disappointed with the complete lack of an ending.
Because the book was quite engaging and enjoyable until it fell off a cliff, I’ll just ding it one star for the worst cliffhanger I’ve read. If you don’t mind cliffhangers, you’ll be in paranormal critter heaven.
I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
Two dark worlds...One night that will change their lives forever...Where evil lurks, only goodness can prevail.
