Scott Westerfeld brought this series to a close with another well written book that tapped the emotions. Rex is the focus of this book. After his encounter with the Darklings in the last book, he fears that he has become more animal than human, and we are meant to wonder throughout this book if that is true. After a close encounter saving a human child, Rex's new hunger is put to the test. Will his human side or animal side prevail? The Midnighters must also deal with the ever growing rip in the blue time that threatens to swallow up Bixby and the surrounding area. Westerfeld is known for series ending stories that don't fit into the pattern of happily ever after, and this one is no exception to that. A very satisfying final story, though, to this exciting series. ( )

The 3rd in the series . Unexpected ending leaving me a little disappointed. ( )

I would give this series 2.5 stars if I could for its original premise alone. However, it's hobbled by characters that never seem to fully develop, and a plot that takes far too long to make its point. Trimmed down, this would have made an excellent stand-alone novel, but at three books it feels padded and repetitive. ( )

Though some have denounced this ending as "unsatisfying" and "just plain annoying," I liked it. It's better than what could have happened, but not as good as a death. Maybe I'm just morbid, wanting someone to die. Anyways. The mysteries are revealed further (not totally) in this last installment, and the end of the world rapidly approaches. Even more complicated by Rex Greene's change into something half-daemon, half-human, the Midnighters struggle to find reason behind the sudden appearance of midnight... at noon. ( )

This was the best book of the series. Mystery and suspense ruled the story until the very last page. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060519592, Paperback)

The five teenage Midnighters of Bixby, Oklahoma, thought they understood the secret midnight hour—until one morning when time freezes in the middle of the day.

The noise of school stops. Cheerleaders are frozen in midair. Everything is the haunted blue color of the midnight hour.

As the Midnighters scramble for answers, they discover that the walls between the secret hour and real time are crumbling. Soon the dark creatures will break through to feed at last . . . unless these five teenagers can find a way to stop them.
