In which a seventeen-year-old ballet dancer began to doubt her very existence due to the unknown past she kept on seeing. Along with the kitchen boy, they unravel the mystery about the ballet school.
Plot – The Midnight Dance has a unique plot, I must say though there plot holes are present.
I really am a sucker when it comes to human experiment which this book has though doesn’t much focuses on. Still, the plot was pretty clever.
One of the things I really do appreciate is that there are no huge quarrels between the students. I mean, of course, there was the annoying teacher’s pet slash two-faced-witch but that’s it. All she can do was roll her eyes heavenwards and be extra jelly.
The ending was okay. Happy ending. However, there are still unanswered questions.
Writing style – I have no problem with the author’s writing style. It isn’t too descriptive but I began to grew bored as I read, simply because of the happenings for it’s a bit cliche.
Anyways, despite my issue with the flow of the story, it’s still a fast-paced novel. Read it in one sitting.
The chapter 1 was pretty much boring so prepare yourselves.
Penny – she’s somewhere between okay and dull. Not the annoying type but not really remarkable.
She belongs to the cliche heroines category. She’s seriously the perfect heroine. The one with the *kinda* dark past, dauntless, kind, not into fashion, and lastly, every bachelor has their eyes on her.
Crickets – he’s my favorite character among all. My only complaint is that, the author didn’t really pay attention to his character. How old is he? What about the memories with his late mother? What occupation does he want to pursue after the tragedy? Obviously, he’ll be the one to inherit all the money but what the hell is he going to do with the money?
I guess that’s for us to find out.
Romance – the romance was insta-love which I always hate but in this cases, I do not detest it because both characters already shared memories before the tragedy. They’re were childhood friends.
I do only wish the author wrote childhood memories. Not just one scene which barely last a half a page.
