Review by Katy Haye:
Striking Midnight brought some excellent twists to the Cinderella story. The world-building was excellent, and provided a powerful conflict between two nations which the infamous ball was placed to heal … or would it?
I loved the characters of Cyn and Knox, and I particularly enjoyed seeing their relationship build, wobble, strengthen and founder again. They were both a complex mixture of capable and vulnerable (Cyn in particular was a fabulous young woman to be crossed at your peril, even my heart was aching for her) and they made a great pair.
Striking Midnight led me a fabulous journey along a very twisting path, and I can’t wait to dive into more of this collection.
