    2. Echo hadn t just found the firebird She was the firebird Holy Shit This is the second book where all the separate adventures and pieces of the first book finally come together yayI was a little worried about all the different characters I mean the first book was great for the characters and I didn t want them to lose that spark The group dynamic was wonderfully written, and each character kept their unique perspective while learning to tolerate each other Of course there were some bumps in the r [...]

    3. So in lieu of the upcoming menthol cigarette ban across the UK, coming to a much beloved Tesco tobacco counter near you, my sister and I decided to start trying e cigarettes Neither of us have stopped smoking cigarettes, but are supplementing with real tobacco and fake tobacco, both to cut down on cost and to prepare for the eventual switch over dun dun DUN But here s the thing Vaping is not really smoking Vaping is to smoking what coconut sorbet is to ice cream It s okay, but sort of thin and s [...]

    4. I didn t enjoy this as much as the first book, but I think a large part of that had to do with the audiobook format I wasn t a fan of the voices the narrator used for most of the male characters, they all sounded the same and I often couldn t tell which character was speaking Also, an element I loved so much about the first book was all of the travel, and listening instead of reading caused me to miss some of the details I often didn t know where the characters were because they move around so m [...]

    5. Originally posted on Super Space Chick The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey is the second book in The Girl at Midnight series which picks up right where book one ends The Girl at Midnight was one of my favorite reads of 2015 so I was HIGHLY anticipating The Shadow Hour and I m so happy to report that it completely blew my expectations out of the water At the end of The Girl at Midnight, Echo was just beginning to learn about herself as the Firebird and in The Shadow Hour we see her explore her past, [...]

    7. Actual rating 4.5 starsThe plot has moved along but it wasn t as exciting or action packed as the first book Though I can t wait to see how it ends This review was originally posted at freadomlibrary.wordpress CriticallyPlot 4.5 out of 5 starsI m a little sad to say that I kind of felt like this book was of a filler Not a lot happens plot wise, it was about creating, challenging and building relationships between the characters It s about self discovery, not only for the main character but fo [...]

    8. There is a love triangle afoot I don t do love triangles They piss me off This one pisses me off becuase after the events of the last book, one could assume that one point of the triangle would no longer be of issue Sigh But apparently he still loves her I mean he never told her before, but he totally does now Okaaaaay Meanwhile, our annoying heroine has been hooking up with the former Dragon Prince Clearly thinking that her previous relationship had died with that bitch Ruby But then Rowan cal [...]

    11. OCT 2015 I thought waiting for APRIL was bad but now its been pushed back 3 months This is not okay.BUT There is a COVER NOWd the SYNOPSIS AH, I LOVE IT Don t read the synopsis if you haven t read the first book though

    12. SO MANY FUCKING TRIANGLES THIS IS YA, NOT A GEOMETRY CLASS CUT THE SHAPES AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHIn the span of a few months, she had gone from unfortunate stray to a weapon of mass destruction War was on the horizon, and the firebird had to play its part Echo had a very strong feeling that, just as Excalibur had been created on an isle of magic and mystery, Avalon was where she would be forged into a weapon.Okay, first up The Shadow Hour, needs to pipe the fuck down and take several seats It s hella m [...]

    13. The Girl At Midnight was a lyrically beautiful, atmospheric and likened to the beloved Daughter of Smoke and Bone series Although I enjoyed The Shadow Hour, it didn t hold me captive as the first book in the series had The mystery surrounding the Firebird is now know to both Avicen and Drakharin alike Seen as a weapon in a centuries long war, Echo has the power to decimate and destroy, making her a valuable commodity One aspect I was delighted to explore was the tentative bond shared between Dor [...]

    14. 3.5 stars This definitely wasn t as good as the first book but I did like it Just didn t love it It kinda had some middle book syndrome going on but not enough for me to not finish it I did like the character development and Caius of course

    15. Oh I m not sure where to begin with this book So I m starting by saying that I m really disappointed in it I can t even deal with thinking about this book It took me days to finish it And I wanted to quit it a few times Which makes me so, so sad Because I wanted to love this book so badly But that was just impossible.I pretty much adored book one I have now read it twice And I like it a whole bunch But there was the beginning of a love triangle And I feared it would be And I was right Ugh I sta [...]

    16. 3.5 5 When she was leaning against the roof s cold concrete with Caius just inches from her, she didn t feel like a person of interest, or a chess piece in the war between the Avicen and the Drakharin She was just a girl, lying next to a boy, gazing up at the stars Last year, I fell in love with Melissa Grey s debut, The Girl at Midnight It was a book that was fun, rich in its world building and had characters that I wanted to befriend Needless to say, I was eagerly anticipating the sequel, The [...]

    17. The Queen literally has the best resting bitch face ever The bird that sings at midnight from within its cage of bonewill rise from blood and ashes, to greet the truth unknown.Although I really enjoyed The Shadow Hour whilst reading, it took me a long time to get round to reviewing it Firstly, because my laptop broke and the loaner I was using was awful clunky, chunky and slow as anything and then because well, it wasn t memorable Unlike The Girl At Midnight, The Shadow Hour doesn t hold the sam [...]

    18. I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher This in no way impacted on my view.I really enjoyed The Girl at Midnight when I read it last year, and couldn t wait to get my hands on book 2, so when I was sent a review copy, I was overjoyed In The Shadow Hour, Echo and her merry bunch Caius, Jasper, Ivy, and Dorian are hiding out in an abandoned warehouse after the battle in Germany, in which Echo became the Firebird they had all been looking for The only one from her old life at the Nest [...]

    19. The Shadow Hour is a good sequel to The Girl At Midnight I am glad I was able to listen to the audiobook as I also listened to the first novel of this series I loved how I was able to picture Echo in my head as the story was being read on my way to work The Girl At Midnight was a bit of a cliffhanger and I liked how I was able to jump right in where the story left off What I liked best about this sequel is that it provides me a recap of the previous story Come on, who remembers every details aft [...]

    20. AHHH I love this series and this squad of dorks and I just WORRY about them Tanith is life It s possibly a bit slow and I never trusted or understood a certain character but we ll get to that later but honestly I love these characters so much that I don t really care if she spend bunches of time on their romantic entanglements because lbr this is what I m here for But the epicy action bits are VERY EPICY AND ACTIONY Also Caius And Tanith And Echo My loves eternal.

    22. I loved this so much This book defies the notion where readers claim that sequels are generally worse than the first book and in many, many cases they are but this is an incredible, beautiful, and magical exception This world that Grey has created is so effortless and so enchanting and so diverse and so complex, that it s really difficult to remember that it s fiction Despite the magic, the madness, the mayhem, and the supernatural creatures, it s so easy to get sucked into this world and to fee [...]

    23. Full of love, loyalty, betrayal and friendships, The Shadow Hour is the sequel to The Girl at Midnight Echo is being hunted by a terrible darkness called Kucedra as well as The Dragon Prince She must find a way to defeat both without endangering her friends or home.I thoroughly enjoyed it though not quite as much as the first book The tone was much darker and there was less humour, but it was full of action and I love how the characters their relationships have developed I have connected deeply [...]

    24. After about 15 months and two publishing delays, the second book in Melissa Gray s The Girl at Midnight trilogy is finally here The expectations were high for those of us who liked the first book, but Gray justifies the long wait and the hype that follows the series When the first book came out, many reviewers complained about the similarities between The Girl at Midnight and Daughter of Smoke and Bone They continue in those elements that Gray borrowed, but otherwise the story takes a different [...]

    25. I loved this series so much, i really do I wanted so bad to give 5 stars to these 2 books but i don t know, this second book was just a little bit disappointed.I didn t like Rowan I found his relation with Echo forced, i felt how much his character was forced, his jokes, etc I just didn t like him, i don t know what So yeah, the biggest problem was of course the love triangle Like if one wasn t enough, it has 2 love triangle Echo Caius Rowan Jasper Dorian Quinn, even if Jasper only has eyes for [...]

    26. Damn This review turned out to be a lengtht oneI absolutely adore this book It is such a refreshing read The Shadow Hour is funny, exciting, sweet, intense and magical I can t even count how many times I laughed out loud, or squealed with excitement I genuinely enjoyed this book So here we go After making a selfless sacrifice, Echo has awakened the Firebird Within herself She is now a vessel for the powerful light of the Firebird But there cannot be light, without the dark For if Newton has taug [...]

    27. First of all massive cliffhanger alert Gr You might want to wait for book 3 to come out before getting yourself all agitated by The Shadow Hour.This is a very book 2 of 3ish book It spends a lot of time building the relationships and slowly revealing information without resolving much of anything There is an obligatory massive confrontation at the end to signify that you should feel that the book is legitimately done, but it basically ends in a stalemate with everything real and decisive yet to [...]
