I enjoyed the first book and the 2nd book wasn't too bad either but this 3rd part just 'do it' for me. I am not sure why but this wasn't as enjoyable as the other parts.
This hasn't put me off the author though. I am really looking forward to reading his other books!

I'd read previous reviews of The Secret Hour which discussed the confusion with the basic premise of the 25-hr day and the idea of blue time not being "at midnight" but "true midnight." I had no problems with that and actually, followed the logic. However, in this book, blue time starts occurring at other times, and there is a rift forming that threatens to expand and pull a large area into the blue time. I didn't follow how there were "stiffs" in blue time, but not in the rift.
A few issues of following the logic of the story aside, the writing stayed true to the feel of the other two books. The characters were developed more (especially Rex and Melissa).
The bottom line: Blue Noon is certainly worth a read - you HAVE to finish off the series. It just didn't captivate and enthrall me like the first two books in the series.
I will say that the ending is depressing.
When I read the first 2 books in this series, I kept asking myself why Bixby had that many midnighters. I have never once met anyone who was born at midnight, and for a small town to have 5, it is kind of astonishing. "Blue Moon" explains it and it makes sense. It wraps up other issues quite nicely too except the origin of the darklings. From what I understand, darklings were conjured from human's primal fears. I still have a little trouble grasping the concept on conjuring something in material from something immaterial.
Scott Westerfeld did a superb job in plot and character developments. All the characters started growing in me almost instantaneously. The writing is fluent and the events are logical, although I found myself quite frequently flipping to the beginning of the chapters to look at the time index again, just to make sure I get the sequence of events correctly.
The ending of this series is so good that it sucks. After having invested so much emotion towards the characters just to find out that they didn't end up the way I wanted them to really sucks. However, it could be worse. Scott Westerfeld could have just killed off Jessica instead. There isn't really a good logical way to keep Jessica alive after she was being struck by a powerful lightning. Keeping her alive only during the blue hour seems the next best thing. I am also genuinely grateful to see Melissa opened up and actively seek out other midnighters.
All in all, the Midnighters series is a worthy good read.
This book is the latest in the series (or final in a trilogy?) that finds the kids in an armegeddon sort of situation. In the final battle, each teen uses his or her special power (flight, mathematics, lore knowledge, power to use light) to fight these nightmares. The end is actually sad, and I don't want to reveal it. But I do recommend this series!
