From the Publisher:
When daylight comes and a new threat surfaces, Jessica Day and the other Midnighters are not prepared for the danger they will have to face, in the suspenseful second addition to the Midnighters trilogy. Reprint.
Bixby, Oklahoma, is full of secrets.
As the Midnighters search for the truth about the secret hour, they uncover terrifying mysteries woven into the very fabric of Bixbys history, and a conspiracy that touches the world of daylight.
This time Jessica Day is not the only Midnighter in mortal danger, and if the group cant find a way to come together, they could lose one of their own . . . forever.
Only midnighters can experience the "blue time," a hidden hour when anyone not born at exactly midnight is frozen. Not in existence anywhere but mysterious Bixby, Oklahoma, the blue time is inhabited by unpleasant creatures called darklings, momentarily held at bay by Jessica, Rex, Melissa, and others. Unfortunately, it seems that diabolic daylight people have discovered the secret, and allied with the darklings against them. This is the second title in the intriguing MIDNIGHTERS series.
