The Girl at Midnight

3 Stars/5

Echo is a runaway pickpocket, who is far from normal, her adoptive family are Avicen, a race of people with feathers and magic. When the centuries old war between the Avicen and the Drakharin hits too close to home, Echo decides it is time to act. Legend is that the way to end the conflict is for someone to find the Firebird, an entity with enormous powers. In the search for the Firebird, Echo will have to work with someone she would have never imagined.

The Girl at Midnight is an enjoyable and fun paranormal novel, with interesting creatures, action, adventure and romance. However, it was predictable and it is very similar to two books I have read. The first book is Daughter of Smoke and Bone as the story was very similar and the second book is Aquila by T L Searle as they both have half bird/human and half dragon/human at war with each other.

Echo is feisty, competent and loyal, and is a very likeable character. There are lots of characters in this book and my favourite is Ivy as she was so nice and kind and Jasper who is a flirt. However, I was not a fan of the love triangle in this book, as I hardly ever like them.

While this book had it faults I still want to read the next book and see what happens next. I would recommend The Girl at Midnight to fans of YA paranormal novels.
