The Midnighters series by Scott Westerfeld is a series that I've wanted to read since I first heard about it. It sounds fresh and original with spunky demon hunting characters. I actually bought all of them earlier in the year from Amazon marketplace really cheaply, so I have no excuse not to read them, exept no time! I love these covers too- the best part is that together on the shelf the spines form a clock face picture.
I have heard so many good things about this series, and I really liked the first couple of books of the Uglies series by this author. I am determined that I will read these books... one day!
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Midnighters of Bixby, Oklahoma, know that their town is full of secrets - especially since they keep the biggest secret of all: knowledge of the secret hour, the mysterious time at midnight when the world freezes, except for them and the creatures that inhabit the darkness. What they don't know is why earlier generations of Midnighters all disappeared, or why they are now the only Midnighters in town. As they learn more about the secret hour's twists and turns, they uncover terrifying mysteries woven into the very fabric of Bixby's history, and a conspiracy that touches both the midnight hour and the world of daylight. At the same time, the Midnighters' own secrets start to emerge, including some that were never meant to come to light, changing the fragile dynamics among the five.
