Wonderful ending! Very interesting twist that I didn't see coming. ( )

Blue Noon delves into the history and reasoning behind the Midnighters and the secret hour; raising obvious peril in the process. I felt the book helped me understand each of the individual characters powers, personalities and their struggles with each other; which may not have been apparent in the previous books.

I've read previous reviews on this book/series that state that the ending was not as expected - which it wasn't - but I found it did bring some closure onto the whole series, even if it wasn't the typical happy ending.

Although there were some heart breaking moments I did enjoy the ending of this book and series. I did feel it could have been explained more in certain areas - such as why Jessica ended up trapped forever (a full explanation wasn't really given; I felt the readers were just left wondering) but overall it was a worth while read.

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

The finale of the Midnighters series is where it gets pretty interesting. Some of the elements that seemed a bit creepy that went unexplored in previous books are totally exploded here, the consequences of the end of the last book become tremendously important (and genuinely chilling) and while there are a couple of elements I had to roll my eyes at (will the nosy little sister end up in peril? Guess!) it came to a bittersweet and reasonably satisfying conclusion.

And I just want to give Westerfeld props for making one of the major (and to my mind, most sympathetic) characters a female math nerd. The attempts at racial diversity pretty much failed (the Latino guy's heritage was only ever brought up as a point of linguistic curiosity, and the wealthy oil-baron's granddaughter mentioned that she was Native American about five times but otherwise I never would have noticed) but at least the handling of gender didn't drive me as batty as it usually does.

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.
