Publisher's Summary

Scarlett Bernard is used to cleaning up messes. As a human who cancels out any magic around her, Scarlett's job is to keep the supernatural world hidden - at any cost.
But on the eve of the Vampire Trials, a two-day tribunal that allows the otherworldly community to air their grievances, Scarlett receives a blood-soaked message from Molly, her estranged former roommate. Molly, a vampire, had been living with 12 human college students...and in one terrible night, she slaughtered them all.
Scarlett believes Molly's been set up, but no one else in the Old World agrees with her. Meanwhile, the true perpetrator is determined to make sure Molly goes on trial for the massacre - and the penalty is death.
With less than two days to prove her friend's innocence, Scarlett calls on former LAPD detective Jesse Cruz to help her dig into Molly's past. But no one - Molly included - wants Scarlett and Jesse to bring the terrible truth to light.

Entertaining story, Good narration.

This story was entertaining enough. It was a bit long at 11 hours and could have been shortened a bit.

It did keep my attention and started out good. There just seemed to be a little bit of things thrown in that didn't need to be there. The romance portion was really non existent.

The story line and plot was good, but like I said the book could have been shortened and I did figure out who the bad vamp was after the first clue. LOL so it is not a very good mystery or surprise if your looking for one. There was a lot of dialogue throughout which I really liked.

The characters were okay. I liked Jesse the most to be honest. Scarlett was okay for the most part. This book was written partly in the first person and partly in the third person, which made it better than if it had been completely in the first person.

As for the narration, it was great. I really like Amy McFadden. She does a great job on the male voices and reads with emotion. She has a great reading voice and is a pleasure to listen to.

This is not the first book.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I spent most of the book feeling like I was on book three or four of a series, not on book 1. It was frustrating. Turns out all the rehashing of backstory actually had its own series, that is now kinda ruined for me because I read this book first.

Would you recommend Midnight Curse to your friends? Why or why not?

Read the Scarlett Bernard series first.

Good book well narrated

Where does Midnight Curse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's a good book better than average but not in my top 10

What did you like best about this story?

The way characters had developed from the earlier series

Which character – as performed by Amy McFadden – was your favourite?

Can't quite decide between Scarlett or Jesse, though I also just love Shadow the "dog"

Any additional comments?

This book follows on about 3 years after the original Scarlett Barnard series and also features a character and information from the boundary magic series so well worth reading those first. Looking forwards to the next one in this series as I like the way Scarlett has grown.
