Review Of Midnight by Megan Derr
Midnight (Dance with the Devil #3)by Megan Derr 4*
BLURB: From the world of Dance with the Devil...comes the tale of Devlin White, Duke of Winterbourne, the last in a long line of powerful witches who assist the Demon Lord of London in keeping control of the nightwalkers living amongst normal men. All but one of his siblings gone to the new American colonies, his proud family line all but ended, Devlin is kept from gloom and despair only by his unusual ward, a young man who is neither alive nor dead, but somewhere in between thanks to powerful magic. Powerful magic that someone seeks, someone who will stop at nothing to obtain the secrets that Devlin would die to protect.
My Review: I think this is one of the few Zombie stories I have read that I truly enjoyed. Mind you Midnight is not your typical brain-eating, rotting corpse type zombie. In fact it is this total uniqueness of Midnight that drives most of the story. The action is richly described and there is a little romance and plenty of odd characters to be entranced by. Would love to read more about them in other books.
