A secret plot, a traitor and will Kat get her own Hellhorse?

Over a year has passed, and our heroine from Silverhorse, Kat, is back in the saddle as apprentice Bredinari. Owing to her notoriety after the capture and death of the ‘fake maestra’ (Ermine), Kat has been afforded some slack and is now even closer to obtaining her own coveted Hellhorse – but before she can enter the primanotte (the bonding session), she simply has to keep her nose clean – nothing to snort at and certainly not guaranteed as far as Kat is concerned... especially after she breaks one of the most fundamental rules of being a Bredinari courier: you do not, under any circumstances, read the sealed messages you carry. Under duress from the recipient on one such message (Raven), Kat agrees to bend the rules only to instantly regret it as she cannot forget its contents. A wanted list.

When summer time comes to Breda and with it the richness and colour of the Summertown caravans; Kat is caught up in the breathtaking excitement and novelty it offers her – and the appearance of Daniel, a gorgeous boy who is clearly infatuated with her, only serves to increase her headiness. The only trouble is, Daniel and his family were on that wanted list. Trapped between doing her duty and doing what her conscience dictates, Kat is barely given the chance to question recent events before she is abducted along with Simon. Suddenly, Simon’s life hangs in the balance and it appears that only Kat can save him – but will she be able to uncover the truth and more importantly, will she be able to get the proof to those that matter in time?

More adult than Silverhorse; Midnight delivers everything that one could have hoped for. The subversion of life in Breda and the suspicion that all is not as it seems, feeds off the galloping pace and intricate plot. More villains, more good guys and definitely more uncertainties: Kat finds herself wondering who she can trust and who the real enemy is. Kaaberbol is outstanding and has produced a delectable feast for burgeoning fantasy fans.
