My Teaser for this week is from

 The Secret Hour

Midnighters #1

by Scott Westerfeld



Genre: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Time Travel, Romance

 My teaser from page 73 in the paperback.

The still, cold light shone from everywhere and nowhere; the silence lay total and absolute. Not even the whispering creaks and groans of a house at night could be heard.

So when the scratching came, Jessica lifter her head at once.


This one is actually kind of creepy. I’m enjoying it so far.

Read on if you want to know more.


Strange things happen at midnight in the town of Bixby, Oklahoma. Time freezes. Nobody moves except dark creatures that haunt the shadows and the few people who are free to move at midnight, Midnighters. Their different powers strongest at midnight are: Seer, Mindcaster, Acrobat, Polymath. All changes when Jessica Day comes to Bixby High with a hidden power.



The cover above is the one I own. Here are some other covers.

    It does sound way creepy. The idea of the scratching coming out of nowhere is chill inducing.
