Midnight Hour


Being a dyslexic witch is a curse in itself, but Miranda Kane’s time at Shadow Falls has helped her harness her magical powers. Now, just as she’s finally mastered them and is preparing to graduate with her friends, a near-death experience threatens to ruin it all.

Miranda awakens in the hospital with a mysterious tattoo that no one can explain. As she struggles to make sense of it – and questions her feelings for a certain irresistible shape-shifter and a hot new guy – the strange markings begin to spread all over her body, leaving her desperate to find answers. But before she can solve that problem, a new one arises: her sister is missing.

Has her sister been kidnapped? Miranda will risk her life to find out. Will she live to share the day she’s worked so hard for with her friends? When the clock strikes midnight, will Miranda make it to her graduation at Shadow Falls?

C. C. Hunter brings The Shadow Falls saga to a spectacular conclusion in this thrilling finale: Midnight Hour!


Graduation is quickly approaching for Miranda and her friends, but not without complications.  Miranda fails her college entrance exam, ends up in the hospital due to an explosion, is accused of being involved in a drug ring, tries to hide a mysterious tattoo that appears and disappears somewhat on command, insults her mother, still loves her ex-boyfriend and learns that her sister has disappeared (possibly by choice).  Life is definitely complicated in Shadow Falls.  Midnight Hour is packed with action, romance and intriguing characters.  This is the first Shadow Falls novel for me, and I was not disappointed.

Miranda is a fabulous character.  She is reliable, caring and intelligent (even though she doesn’t think she is because of her dyslexia).  Miranda has a great relationship with her friends and half-sister and is loyal to the end.  I am also intrigued by her relationship with Blake and look forward to reading the novels that came before this one to learn more about it.

This book is easy to read and extremely entertaining.  I didn’t feel like I was missing a lot by not reading the novels before this one but am definitely adding them to my TBR list.  This is a good book for the reluctant or stubborn reader.  The pacing is great and the level of suspense is perfect.  I am definitely adding this series to my classroom library.

4/5 stars
