The Shadow Hour, by Melissa Grey (audio)

shadow hourSequel to The Girl At Midnight.

Caveat: I barely remember this book, despite having just listened to it. This is not the book’s fault. This is entirely my fault, as I listened to it while doing about a thousand other things, only half paying attention. So my thoughts on the book are very vague, and are more general impressions than thoughts. This is definitely one I will be revisiting before the final book in the trilogy comes out.

So, my general impressions, bullet-style:

  • I enjoyed the book, though not as much as the first one. Again, this is possibly my own fault.
  • I really ought to have reread the first book before starting this one. I was slowly reintroduced to a lot of things, but there’s still a lot I felt I was missing.
  • I enjoyed the second half of the book more than the first, though I couldn’t say why.
  • I felt like there was too much lingering over the love triangle, which I thought, in the first book, was less of a love triangle and more of a shifting set of interests. But maybe I just don’t remember properly.
  • I really loved the introduction of a dark force opposite the light force, and the discussion of light/dark and what influences them.
  • I didn’t like the audio performance as well this time, while I loved it for the first book. I couldn’t say why or how they were different.
  • Jasper’s story was my favorite.

Aaaaaand that’s about it. That’s pathetic. Perhaps when I revisit these books before the next one comes out, I’ll write a full review of this book.

    I hate when you look back on a book and know it was your mood and not the book. 😦
