Midnight continues the tale which began in Blood in the Shadows. The characters realize they are connected somehow and must figure out what happened in the past in order to save themselves and the world. Ms. Centeno's characters are sassy and complex who change as we learn more about their own histories. It's such a fun world to read!
A past shrouded in darkness.
A mission that can mean the difference between life and death.
One week to find the answers they need.
With the memories of her historical love for the Soul Broker who was once commissioned to harvest her soul, eradicated from her mind, Daya must embark on a perilous journey through dangerous territory to find those who might shed some light into the mystery that surrounds them. But what she uncovers along the way may prove too daunting for her to come to terms with.
Trapped in a loop she can’t get out of, Daya’s only tool for survival is trusting Mason. But will betrayal be a determining factor when they both have something to gain by giving up on each other?
NOTE: This book is the continuation of the short story featured in the anthology, Blood in the Shadows. Midnight picks up right where Shadows left off.
Excerpt for Midnight
Mortified, I drop my arms to my lap and squeeze my eyes shut to clear my head. Mason holds himself in place. Though I can’t see him, I sense his gaze on me, his forearms still positioned on each side of my head.
“Daya, what is it? What’s bothering you?”
“You blindly trusted me, and I nearly betrayed that trust,” I whisper.
His fingers glide up my left cheek, softly caressing the side of my face.
“What did you remember?”
I shake my head, and keep my eyes closed. I can’t find the courage to look up at him.
“Not something I want to go into now.” Perhaps not for a while. It’s a reality I was unprepared to face.
“Daya, whatever it is…it’s in the past.” When I nod, he adds, “We don’t have to deal with it right at this moment. Let’s take things in stride.”
I open my eyes to look at him. “Doesn’t it bother you? Not knowing, I mean?”
“It does, but losing my patience won’t make things progress faster.
He’s right. These events are in the past, but being reminded of them makes it seem as if they just happened. The memory was so real. Too real. Terrifying. I don’t think there’s ever been a time, before or after, where I’ve felt as helpless or confused.
