Publisher's Summary

Midnight is the most bewitching hour of them all.…
From Paula Brackston, the New York Times best-selling author of The Witch’s Daughter and The Winter Witch, comes a magical tale that is as dark as it is enchanting. Set in high-society Edwardian England, The Midnight Witch is the story of a young witch who faces the choice between love and loyalty to her coven.…
"The dead are seldom silent. All that is required for them to be heard is that someone be willing to listen. I have been listening to the dead all my life."
Lady Lilith Montgomery is the daughter of the sixth Duke of Radnor. She is one of the most beautiful young women in London and engaged to the city’s most eligible bachelor. She is also a witch.
When her father dies, her hapless brother Freddie takes on his title. But it is Lilith, instructed in the art of necromancy, who inherits their father’s role as Head Witch of the Lazarus Coven. And it is Lilith who must face the threat of the Sentinels, a powerful group of sorcerers intent on reclaiming the Elixir from the coven’s guardianship for their own dark purposes. Lilith knows the Lazarus creed: Secrecy and silence. To abandon either would put both the coven and all she holds dear in grave danger. She has spent her life honoring it, right down to her engagement to her childhood friend and fellow witch Viscount Louis Harcourt.
Until the day she meets Bram, a talented artist who is neither a witch nor a member of her class. With him, she must not be secret and silent. Despite her loyalty to the coven and duty to her family, Lilith cannot keep her life as a witch hidden from the man she loves. To tell him will risk everything.

Ridiculously inane lead character

I am on chapter 21 of 29 and I can barely stand to listen further. The lead character is ridiculously self absorbed, young and silly and completely inappropriate for the role of coven leader! The entire premise of what could be an excellent story is made ridiculous.

Slow

Would you try another book from Paula Brackston and/or Marisa Calin?

Yes

Would you ever listen to anything by Paula Brackston again?

Yes

Which character – as performed by Marisa Calin – was your favorite?

None, the story was so slow, that you ended up not caring about any of them.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Midnight Witch?

About 50% of the story. It went on and on and on.

Any additional comments?

The first two books in this series were really good. Not this one.

Just OK really

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The heroine is a bit wet. Meant to have power and knowledge but never demonstrates it.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was very abrupt. I prefer a bit of exposition at the end of a story but this just stops. It always makes me feel a bit short changed when that happens.

What does Marisa Calin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Marisa Calin is OK as a narrator. She doesn't mispronounce anything too egregiously although can't do accents very well.

Any additional comments?

I just found this a bit meh overall. The historical setting is not particularly convincing and the heroine doesn't have much agency. The lack of explanation is annoying. We are constantly told that what the coven does helps people but it's never explained in what way. They just seem to vaguely talk to spirits now and again.
