Decent beginning but leaves off right when things are beginnning to come together. Five teenagers in Bixby OK all born at midnight discover a secret hour that only they can move through. They must come together to defeat the inhabitant of this special hour.

The Secret Hour is the first book in the Midnighters series. I really liked this book. Jessica Day (perfect name) moves into Bixby, Oklahoma and soon finds out she is a Midnighter. She and her fellow Midnighers fight demons and slithers every night at midnight. Jessica seems to be a magnet for these creatures. She must find out what her special talent is before Bixby is overrun. This was a really good beginning for the series of three books. Another good story by Westerfeld who wrote another of my favorites, the Uglies series. I'm anxious to read the next book, Touching Darkness.
