After captivating millions across the globe, the Shadow Falls saga reaches its final—and most unforgettable—chapter yet! Prepare to fall in love all over again...

Being a dyslexic witch is a curse in itself, but Miranda Kane’s time at Shadow Falls has helped her harness her magical powers. Now, just as she’s finally mastered them and is preparing to graduate with her friends, a near-death experience threatens to ruin it all.

Miranda awakens in the hospital with a mysterious tattoo that no one can explain. As she struggles to make sense of it – and questions her feelings for a certain irresistible shape-shifter and a hot new guy – the strange markings begin to spread all over her body, leaving her desperate to find answers. But before she can solve that problem, a new one arises: her sister is missing.

Has her sister been kidnapped? Miranda will risk her life to find out. Will she live to share the day she’s worked so hard for with her friends? When the clock strikes midnight, will Miranda make it to her graduation at Shadow Falls?

My Opinion

This book is a triple threat- the perfect ending to a series, an amazing release date with it being a week before Halloween, and an epic story for a beloved secondary character. That is right follow readers- Miranda gets her own book and CC Hunter does not disappoint. 

Miranda’s sister Tabitha convinces her to visit a lady who can foresee the future of relationships. Or so Tabitha believes. Miranda goes, the house explodes. Leaving Miranda and Tabitha in the hospital, from which Tabitha gets taken. Which of course means that Miranda will do anything to find her, the things you do for a sibling. 

Miranda has always been a fantastic secondary character, which is why I was so excited that she was getting her own book. This was her moment to shine and girl went supernova on us. She has always had a little bit of self-doubt due to her learning disability. Her dyslexia is the reason she is who she is- determine, persistent, loyal, warm and loving. Her friends wouldn’t have it any other way and in Midnight Hour she finds out why. 

As for the love triangle, I started this book absolutely hating Perry. He had hurt her one too many times. I was lukewarm towards Shawn- anyone besides Perry, he had Miranda so heartbroken she was planning mean video games. Then it happens, chapter four and chapter nine. After those two chapters I turn Team Perry in a frantic fangirl way. He has something to prove, but only to himself. He needs to know that he is good enough for Miranda- that he won’t bring her down.

The girls friendship if course is the glue that holds the series together. They devotion and loyalty to each other is a rare thing in today’s fast pace, technological take over society. It is what makes the series great.

Midnight Hour is an impressive ending to an outstanding series. There is only one question left to be answered- what happened to Steve? Other than that the series wraps up nicely almost like a Halloween night with a full moon and clear skies.

My Rating 5 out of 5 stars
