First Lines:
“I have always had this dream where I’m with my beautiful mother and handsome father in a forest. The moon is blue and high and not a single could is in sight.”

My Thoughts:

Holy crap, this was written by a 16 year old! I am thoroughly impressed! It was a captivating story. Midnight kept me entertained and the need to keep reading. I loved Medina, the main character. She was entertaining. She is living on her own because her parents died. This is how she describes herself: “My name is Medina, a seventeen year old who lives on her own in an apartment. Obviously funded by the government but its nice enough. I’m a tall girl with raven black hair and deep sapphire blue eyes and sometimes someone you don’t really want to mess with. I’m nicknamed The Menace but don’t be afraid really. If you get in my way, that’s when I will punch you.” She’s just a kickass girl. She sounds like she’d be one of my friends if she were real.
This book had a little bit of everything. Lycanthropy, Vampirism, Witchcraft, Demons, etc. It’s a light read and a lot of fun. There are a few typos, but not too bad. I’d definitely love to see this piece reworked and published again, hopefully by a bigger publishing company, because I think it deserves it.
If you’re into the supernatural/paranormal, pick this up and check it out! It’s worth the read!
