This sounds great! As a big Mortal Instruments fan, I'm definitely excited about something that calls to it. Plus I love anything connected to it.

For readers of Cassandra Clare's City of Bones and Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone, The Girl at Midnight is the story of a modern girl caught in an ancient war.

Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she's ever known.

Echo is clever and daring, and at times she can be brash, but above all else she's fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it's time to act.

Legend has it that there is a way to end the conflict once and for all: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power the likes of which the world has never seen. It will be no easy task, but if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it's how to hunt down what she wants . . . and how to take it.

But some jobs aren't as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire.


  1. Great pick! This is one that I'm really looking forward to, the Avicen intrigue me and I can't to see why it's being compared to Shadow and Bone and City of Bones.

    Hope you get to read it soon!

  2. This looks great. I will probably pick this one up just because it is related to City of Bones haha. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I don't read a lot of fantasy, but I think I might try this one.

  4. I just finished reading this one. The world-of-story is great and OTP factor is definitely reminiscent of The Mortal Instruments. But the plot gets pretty predictable. Hope you enjoy it when it comes out, Alison!
