Review: Midnight Dawn by Jocelyn Adams

Check out my review of Darkside Sun (Mortal Machine #1) Midnight Dawn picks up a bit after Darkside Sun ends. I didn’t love this installment as much as I enjoyed the first one but it definitely wasn’t bad. There were a lot of events going on which kept me reading.

I just sounded like something unlike anything I’ve ever read. “The room had sacrificial chamber written all over it, with ancient carved circular rock walls, a stone floor with a drain in the center, shelves upon shelves heavy with old things I had no name for, and the last, a stone object I could only call an altar. Honest to goodness shackles hung from either end of it. A freakin’ altar, and me in my virgin sacrifice outfit.” The plot of this novel was the hitter. Adams crafted an intricate sequence of events that started on the first page of the novel. Addison can see thing, things that other people can’t, and for years has been pretending that she was normal. But when one of her episodes leads to her being late to Professor Asher Green’s class, things take a turn. Asher turns out being part of the Mortal Machine–a group of immortals that protect the world from […]
