CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
Author Karissa Laurel created a non-stop, character driven, thrill ride in Midnight Burning. Laurel mixes ancient myths and heroes with modern-day scenarios, she crafts a refreshing story-line.
Guaranteed to thrill the reader, Laurel infuses tension, actions, and mystery in this novel. With steady and smooth pacing, Laurel weaves the many plot lines together to form an intriguing paranormal mystery novel. Even though Burning Midnight contains mystery and paranormal elements, Laurel also includes humor and romance giving the reader relief from the tension and action as each chapter barrels toward the conclusion.
Concluding my mystery paranormal review of Burning Midnight, I find the characters well-developed with strong personalities. Laurel’s writing style is smooth, clear, and clean. Midnight Burning was a good beginning to this series. However, it does leave something of a cliff hanger in the ending. I look forward to the next book.
