On My Wishlist #6

On My Wishlist this week once again features a series that I recently stumble to whilst doing my regular "research" on GoodReads. Alethea rated this book and its sequel 5 stars and she said, "This series, IMHO, Westerfeld at his absolute best". To read Alethea's review on this series, do click here

Book Title: The Secret Hour
Author: Scott Westerfeld
Series: Midnighters #1
Pages: 304 pages
Genre: Paranormal
Synopsis (taken from Amazon):
Moving when you're in high school is difficult enough, especially when your parents can't seem to hold their own lives together and your younger sister is being more obnoxious than usual. However, for 15-year-old Jessica Day, these concerns pale when bizarre things start to happen and she discovers that she now has unwanted magical powers. Part science fiction, part horror story, this novel is the first in a series about the midnighters, a select group of individuals whose birth at the stroke of midnight gives them the special ability to move about in a mysterious 25th hour. As Jessica takes her place among these extraordinary teens, she must battle the increasingly dangerous slithers and other darklings that have suddenly become more violent and aggressive.

Other Books in this Series:
(1) Touching Darkness (Midnighters #2)
(2) Blue Noon (Midnighters #3)
