Review: Midnight Moon
Midnight Moon by Marilee Brothers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Reading Level: Young Adult (15+)
Recommended for: Fans of YA urban fantasy; the series
Trigger Warnings: Violence, murder
My Thoughts: I'm really bummed that the loss of my Kindle meant I could not re-read the previous four books before reading this final book, because I remember absolutely loving them, and would have loved to been able to refresh my memory. But you know what? I fell right into this book, just like … falling into a swimming pool and riding a bike. Or something. It was just an enthralling to me as the previous four and I read it straight through.
I think the author did a great job of wrapping up the series and finishing up all the extant threads. She could write more if she wanted to, but it would be starting up a new story. I thought it was very well done. I've said most of what needs saying in earlier reviews, so I'll just reiterate here that I have really enjoyed this books, loved the characters and character development, and highly recommend them to folks who enjoy YA urban fantasy.
Series Information: This is the fifth (and last I heard final) book in the Unbidden Magic series. The previous books, which I read in April of 2012, are:

Disclosure: I received an e-galley from Bell Bridge Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Synopsis: The Trimarks are planning an invasion. And the only thing standing in their way is Allie and the moonstone.
All Allie wants is a normal life - friends, boys, school dances. Right. Like that's going to happen.
In two weeks, during the summer solstice, Allie's going to face the biggest challenge of her life, fighting against time to save the world from a Trimark invasion. You'd think the world of weird might leave her alone to plan how she's going to survive. But nothing in Allie's world is simple or easy, especially when she's attacked by Trimarks trying to steal the moonstone. Then Sammie disappears into the faery world of Boundless, and Allie must follow and bring her home, only to find the fairy queen, Luminata, isn't about to let Allie leave. So, what's a girl with magical powers supposed to do?
Fortunately, she has a team to help her, a team with special talents of their own.
