As a boy, guild prophet Malachi foresaw that his sister, Misha, would be crowned queen and the vampire empire would fall. A covenant has formed that can topple the vampires, but Misha's instability poses as great a threat. Malachi has little agency as events happen around him, reducing any sense of urgency or suspense. This third installment is for series die-hards only.

Gr 9 Up—The vampires of Midnight have dominated the shape-shifting clans, the witch clans, other vampire lines, and the humans for far too long. The ruthlessness of Mistress Jeshickah coupled with the much-anticipated prophecy predicting Midnight's dismissal by the well-respected visionary and leader of the Obsidian guild have set the stage for rebellion. In his youth, Malachi Obsidian foretold an empire without vampire tyranny and ruled by none other than his sister Misha. While many question Misha's leadership, great sacrifices have been made by all parties involved to set this in motion. As members of the different clans join forces to bring down Midnight, Malachi's secrets and subsequent guilt over past sins haunt him. But his struggles with the truth solidify his commitment to his clan, his friends, and the value for all to be free. In this installment, Atwater-Rhodes brings a well-crafted conclusion to her extraordinary and mysterious world of Midnight. Full of intrigue, danger, and unpredictable magic, this series features an extensive cast of characters (some of whom are referenced in her other works) who all play a key role in the unfolding events and ultimate conclusion. The powerful themes of courage, loyalty, love, and friendship reign true and allow for a very satisfying finale. VERDICT Worthwhile for Atwater-Rhodes fans and those who enjoy books about the mythical and supernatural.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY
