Publisher's Summary

In the heart of Calcutta lurks a dark mystery....
Set in Calcutta in the 1930s, The Midnight Palace begins on a dark night when an English lieutenant fights to save newborn twins Ben and Sheere from an unthinkable threat. Despite monsoon-force rains and terrible danger lurking around every street corner, the young lieutenant manages to get them to safety, but not without losing his own life....
Years later, on the eve of Ben and Sheere's 16th birthday, the mysterious threat reenters their lives. This time, it may be impossible to escape. With the help of their brave friends, the twins will have to take a stand against the terror that watches them in the shadows of the night - and face the most frightening creature in the history of the City of Palaces.

Another lovely book, beautifully presented.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mr Zafon's prose is magical. There is a rhythm and meter to his work that captures my imagination, inspires it to new heights, then flings it free to fly along the story. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a tall tale, beautiful imagery, and a little magic. Jonathan Davis is an excellent narrator, he brings so much to the characters but doesn't overpower the beauty of the story.

good listen!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Midnight Palace to be better than the print version?

I thought that the sound effects in the book added to the drama of the story. The reader has a great voice, I enjoyed him!
