Read full description of the books:
I was very disappointed in this book. I liked Prince of Mist, but this book was not nearly as good (and I didn't think Prince of Mist was great).
For one thing, Grandma does not want anyone telling Sheere that her father was a bad man. But Grandma was the one who, for her whole life, has been telling Sheere that her father is a good man. But she knew his spirit was hunting his children to kill one of them. So why did she build him up in Sheere's mind in the first place?
How can Ben and Sheere have a mystical connection because they were twins separated at birth?
Why did Dad kidnap Ben's friends and tie them up? Why didn't he just kill them all and then kill Ben?
Whatever happened to their father's home? Why did he build it so weird?
How can they believe one minute that the bad guy knows they are there, because the miniature train starts going around the tracks and has three miniature figures of them inside, and then the next minute feel they are safe enough to go to sleep in separate rooms?
And why is it the girl always has to be the one sacrifice herself?
The story was not that interesting. It was difficult to follow. Explanations were given in character speech, going on for pages. Couldn't the author find a way to show, not tell? I was actually kind of angry by the end because I really wanted to like the book and find it creepy, like Prince of Mist. I don't understand why VOYA had it as a starred review.
The cover art is great, though.
In the heart of Calcutta lurks a dark mystery....
Set in Calcutta in the 1930s, The Midnight Palace begins on a dark night when an English lieutenant fights to save newborn twins Ben and Sheere from an unthinkable threat. Despite monsoon-force rains and terrible danger lurking around every street corner, the young lieutenant manages to get them to safety, but not without losing his own life. . . .
Years later, on the eve of Ben and Sheere's sixteenth birthday, the mysterious threat reenters their lives. This time, it may be impossible to escape. With the help of their brave friends, the twins will have to take a stand against the terror that watches them in the shadows of the night--and face the most frightening creature in the history of the City of Palaces.
