The Secret Hour (Midnighters #1) - Scott Westerfeld Scott Westerfeld comes up with a fascinating new world in his Midnighters series. It's a brilliant concept to begin with, and one that only Westerfeld could ever have come up with. This book was a sci-fi book that had an everyday, relatable, twist to it and that would be enjoyed by everyone. I enjoyed that it mixed the element of real life and love life with a different element. And the fact that no one but them new about it and it became a world for them. The book begins with an ordinary girl, and as she learns of her new life in the "secret hour", so do the readers along with her, providing a unique and relatable point of view. The first novel of the series sets up for an amazing plot to come.
