Title: The Midnight Queen (Sequel to The Twilight Saint)
Author - Jessica Penot
Date Published: Nov 23, 2012
Aiela has spent her entire life sheltered from the world. Her only dream has been to escape
the quiet island life she's know and find adventure in the world outside. After the death of her
mother, Aeila escapes to the University, a world filled with technological wonders and exotic
people. But her own history is dark and the secrets behind her birth may destroy everything that
hold Aiella together.
Midnight Queen by Jessica Penot is a fast-paced book with plenty of plot twists and turns to keep you turning pages. When I signed up for the tour, I did not realize that this book was a sequel. I have not read the first book in the series Twilight Saint, but I did not feel lost reading Midnight Queen and was able to catch on to what had happened in the first book. The world building is amazing. Jessica Penot does an amazing job at painting a picture with her words. I could envision everything she was describing, in graphic detail. This is both a good thing, and a bad thing. It's bad because there are some graphic scenes. The people living in this world, are kind of screwed up if you ask me. All the scenes, dark and light, make the story what it is, I just want to forewarn some of the more squeamish readers there are some scenes that may make you uncomfortable. I like Aiela has a character. I really related with her, and he thirst for adventure. I could really appreciate her struggles and the things she goes through in her journey for escape. I really found the people of the University to be really interesting, and some of the more interesting people I've read about in a while. I recommend this book to those seeking action and adventure, those that love fantasy and sci-fi and those that aren't afraid to read dark scenes. I would recommend reading the first book before this one, just so you have more of the back story. I'
