    1. This was just okay to me I don t know maybe asking this to follow Middlemarch was just to set it up for failure It was just okay The writing is fine, the plot moves along well, there are several tense situations and last minute rescues, and the antagonists are creepy I really like Scott Westerfeld, so I definitely think it s just me If you like YA, an interesting premise, or Scott Westerfeld, don t let me hold you back Go on read enjoy


    2. This series continues to impress It s one of those books that you find it hard to put down once you pick it up I confess to putting in movies for my kids so they d leave me alone staying up way too late at night to read this one I think I read the entire thing in 2 days, which is impressive for someone with 3 little kids.This book goes further into the relm of midnight, without rehashing any of the difficulties overcome in the last book It brought a whole new aspect into the Blue Time with the e [...]


    3. Changing this one to a four because I don t think it was as great as other books I ve given five stars however, it was a solid second installment to the Midnighters series and did leave me eagerly awaiting the next one.One thing I remember about this book was its superb characterization While the first book laid out the framework of the characters personalities, Touching Darkness took their interpersonal relationships above and beyond Bravo, Westerfeld.


    4. This book was a little better than the first for me Now that it seems like most of the explanations are out of the way, we were able to really dive into the meat of the story and learn new things.With the arrival of Jessica in Bixby, the Midnighters now pretty much have a full set Especially once they figured out what Jessica s power was Armed with this knowledge and the knowledge that the darklings are terrified of Jessica, it almost seems like the Midnighters can get their blue time back for t [...]


    5. 4 stelline e mezzo Questo libro stato ancora meglio del primo Ora, cercher di essere schematica Stile di scrittura valgono le stesse cose che ho scritto nella recensione del primo libro della serie, L ora Segreta Westerfeld ha una capacit descrittiva davvero magistrale e ho apprezzato, in particolar modo, l analisi psicologica dei personaggi e i lati scientifici dell intera faccenda Troppi scrittori, quando provano a scrivere di materie scientifiche, molto spesso non sanno nemmeno che pesci pigl [...]


    6. Westerfield brings the grey area in this second book in the Midnighters series Weeks have passed since the culminating events of Book 1, and our heroes are divided and not getting along particularly well I like that Westerfield does not feel compelled to make all his characters chummy or likable They re thrust together by circumstances, not friendship, and it shows as it should But I did start to really dislike mindcaster Melissa, and I wasn t all that fond of seer Rex, either This is the strong [...]


    7. I don t know what it is about these books, but I can t get into them Not in the can t finish at all sense its crazy easy to read, like most of Westerfeld s works , but in the sense of plot and characters Excluding maybe Dess, I really don t like any of the midnighters They all kinda bore me She was the only interesting one with her obsession in finding out about the secret hour via, well, crazy ass math skillz.I would say this one is better than the first, just because we get explanations on t [...]



    8. Main annoyances Why does everyone treat Melissa like crap They call her a bitch behind her back and act like she s so high and mighty I didn t really see that I mean, sure, she s not the easiest person to get along with, she s a little standoffish, and she can be snarky She s not a fan of touching anyone ever But why Because she hears the thoughts of not just herself but everyone If she touches someone, it s intimate and invasive for both of them because she is privy to all their thoughts and th [...]


    9. No Limiar das Trevas o segundo volume da trilogia de fantasia urbana de Scott Westerfeld, Midnighters Passadas cerca de duas semanas depois dos acontecimentos de A Hora Secreta , os cinco midnighters continuam a sua demanda para descobrir todos os segredos por detr s da misteriosa hora azul, especialmente depois da descoberta do poder especial de Jessica Mas a complexidade e as conspira es em torno da 25 hora, darklings e pr pria Hist ria de Bixby adquirem uma dimens o muito maior que poder colo [...]


    10. I had a hard time getting into this one I realized that I remembered very little about the first it s been a couple of years other than the basic details that they were kids, born at the stroke of midnight, fighting ancient evil But it took me a bit to get back into the characters, especially because I didn t remember them being this obnoxious I mean, sure they re teenagers, forming new relationships, and with the heavy burden of their gifts But none of them actually seem to get along, and they [...]


    11. Bixby, Oklahoma is full of secrets some of which come out at midnight and some which should stay hidden As Rex, Dess, Melissa, Jonathan and Jessica try to discover the midnighters past, they discover a conspiracy that has evil intentions They are conspiring with the darklings to replace their halfling, Anathea, who is dying They want to use Rex as their replacement In the mean time, Dess discovers Madeline, the only Midnighter from her generation still in existence With her help, she gives them [...]


    12. Al contrario del primo libro, che parte con una buona idea che poi non sviluppa bene, questo libro parte quasi senza idee ma riesce a tirar fuori qualcosa di interessante nel finale Non sono ancora sicura di aver capito tutto dei midnighters di cinquant anni prima, n riesco ad immaginare come gli amici degli oscuri avessero il coraggio di rapire una bambina di dodici anni e consegnarla a loro Jonathan convinto che risvegliandosi davanti al suo cadavere gli verr un infarto, ma a me sembra buonism [...]



    13. I thought the first book was pretty good, but I really enjoyed this one I read both of the books in a span of 48 hours I m now waiting for the third one at the library.


    14. The novel I read for Unit Four was Midnighters Touching Darkness by Scott Westerfeld In Bixby Oklahoma for one hour every night time freezes, everything and everyone stops That is everyone except the Midnighters Following the conclusion of the first book, Midnighter The Secret Hour, Jessica Day is still getting use to life in her new school and life in the secret hour, but at least she can protect herself with her new found powers, bringing fire into the Blue Time But now it seems like there are [...]



    15. Oh, good Lord THIS BOOK.I wasn t really going to read it I think I read the first one in the trilogy, The Secret Hour, at some point last fall, without much enthusiasm It seemed okay, I guess, but not good enough to spark an interest and make me want to read the rest However, yesterday I didn t know what books to pick at the bookstore, so I decided I d give this series a go mostly because I am rather well acquainted with Westerfeld s works, and so far his talent has always amazed me Well, I wasn [...]


    16. Well, it was good Probably because I liked the storyline from the first book, and Westerfeld uses really interesting myths, words and details, so I was not bored with silly and clich love stories Besides, he uses different points of view Jessica in this book she is not a main character, which is a really good decision , Rex he is the main character here, but the good thing is that his story is about life choices, scandals, past etc NOT about feelings even if he has ones for Melissa , Desdemona t [...]


    17. First Look 4 5 I wasn t sure what I d think of this book The first one was pretty good, but not great, and the second book in a trilogy is usually my least favorite.Setting 4 5 It s an average little town thatn t quite so average Somehow I like it better during the midnight hour.Characters 4 5 I liked all of the midnighters, except for Jessica She s such a Mary Sue, and doesn t really have much personality I liked the others, though, especially Dess Her mind works in such weird, unique ways Rex [...]


    18. Still really enjoying this series and the concept that began with The Secret Hour In this book, the midnighters are coming into their own Suddenly, a stalker is found outside Jessica s house frozen at midnight taking pictures The stalker is human and not a midnighter which makes the secret exsistance of the midnighters in jeopardy What does he know Who is he Why Jessica Rex and Melissa decided to try and find Jessica s stalker and stumble onto a darkling house that is used by darkling human grou [...]


    19. In the first of the Midnighters series we meet the Midnighters themselves and learn what Jessica s special power is and why the darklings and slither fear her.In the second of the extremely fast paced trilogy Jessica and Jonathan realise that others, normal people, knew about them and are stalking them.The darklings are a also bigger threat and appear to be growing in strength, biding their time until they are able to strike and take over the midnight hour.The Midnighters are in danger than the [...]


    20. Questo libro sulla scia del primo, cio non male e si legge piuttosto bene solo che manca quel qualcosa che mi conquisti quindi non gli darei pi di tre stelline.Leggendo L ora segreta mi ero convinta che la protagonista di questa trilogia fosse Jessica, leggendo questo libro per non sono pi tanto sicura Il personaggio che stato pi approfondito stato probabilmente Melissa con Rex come secondo quindi mi chiedo se nel terzo non sar dominante un altro personaggio ancora Rex magari questa volta, vista [...]


    21. Touching Darkness follows up on Midnighters almost immediately Jessica having discovered she is light bringer, torch user is a powerful and deadly midnighter that the Darklings feared But its Dess who keeps discovering about the Midnight hour and how it affects all of them including the town of Bixby itself This book never lets off the accelerator giving us almost continuous action which is very cool Jessica is being stalked by some unknown party Rex and Melissa are finding love and also discov [...]


    22. I can t say that I enjoyed this book overall as much as the first one It was just hard for me to get into at first I can say that I enjoyed the way Westerfield fleshed out all of the characters he had established in the first book I don t think I liked Melissa at all in the first book, and she s basically become one of my favorite characters now Jonathan will always be my baby, though He s the best, and I loved how this book ended Hee And Dess is always, always cool Math is badass and you know i [...]


    23. I love it I feel bad that Melissa went through the windshield even though she s a jerk Jess finally gets a chance to use her powers in this book Dess and all of her weapons Three thirteen letter phrases I felt horrible for Rex though, his father was so sick minded Then he becomes a vegetable I don t think I d have the guts to take care of him I would ve stuck him in a box with millons of trantulas, payback buddy Aww, Melissa and Rex do make a good couple though And so do Jess and Johnathon I fe [...]


    24. Not a bad followup And given that I read book 1 months ago, pretty easy to follow Not nearly as much to introduce so mostly it was character and story The individual characters are recognizably different from each other It d be nice to see a different pov Still is kind of a superhero book, but in this one that was a little bit ignore able But nothing too impressive 3.5 of 5.


    25. Nothing beats the ending line.I wonder why I always like Scotts 2nd book But anyway, it just my second time reading his series.I like it But it took me too long to finish this, since I read atleast 4 books in interval and nevertheless, I like the result Me missing this kind of world Hmn I ll do that reading in between often, so I could refresh my world once.So what I m talking about is that, I like it.The story is getting interesting Yet I m not excited about it But nonetheless I like the outco [...]


    26. Still enjoying these, mostly for the characters However, view spoiler I am not sure how I feel about the fact that a central plot element could be summarized as, Native Americans interest in protecting land from development is due to a deal they made with evil nightmare creatures, sealed by the blood sacrifice of a white child, to make them rich hide spoiler I am hoping that becomes rather nuanced in book three.


    27. On the second book, Darklings and Slithers are not the only ones after the Midnighters, humans are starting to get involved in a dangerous chase and a secret from a long lost Midnighter comes to the surface.Now it s not only Jessica that is in danger, but it seems that another Midnighter is of great importance to the humans.A great continuation of the first book It sets the stage for the final one
