Book Review: The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

Book Review Tuesday time and today's book is a paranormal and this one I got from NetGalley so Thank You NetGalley for the Advanced copy of this book.

Let's get to it:

The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

This book takes place beneath the streets of New York City where the Avicens live, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins.  Humans don't know they exist, that is all but one human; Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives selling stolen treasures on the black market and the Avicen are the only family she's ever know.

Echo can be daring, crazy stealing treasures and using Avicen magic to travel the world to get the treasures and sell them, but one thing that she is, is loyal.  So when a centuries-old war is about to happen in the only home that she knows and she is trusted with some assignments she  doesn't even have to think twice, she is more than glad to help.  Not even caring about some of the risks that she is about to face.

There is only one way to end the war: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power to likes of which the world has never seen.  But no one has never seen the Firebird, but Echo believes that she can do and so she embarks on the magical journey.  And magical it is.

At the beginning  the book can be a little slow, but OMG once Echo goes on that journey?  Expect lots an lots of action, non stop action with non stop twists.  You will never know what will come next, which was what I loved more about this book, it kept surprising me and it had been a while since a book did that to me.

I gave it a 4 out 5 stars and I totally recommend this book and cannot wait to read the next in the series. 

What?  I'm not going to tell you more about it, go read, no spoilers here. : )
