Midnight City is a bit of dystopian mixed with the alien invasion genre. The story has a sense of desperation in a world that has been destroyed and the hope of what might be. The story line is wildly imaginative with genuine characters like Holt, Mira, and Zooey. They are likable and interesting from the very start.
I felt at times I was being thrown into the action, and not very sure how to get a grasp on everything. The main characters are out racing alien machines and raiding an ancient nuclear reactor. But once they final reach the Midnight City, the pace picks up and the book is hard to put down.
Midnight City is a fantastic thrill ride that is full of action and appropriate for all ages. It is fun read.
