Land of Midnight Days is a story without the usual fantasy tropes, and the familiar elements (elves, ogres) are altered in such a way as to appear completely original creations. The hero is a lonely, mute boy, whose sole possession and tenuous link with an unknown past is a silver flute. The setting is out of the ordinary too. There are no orderly Hobbit-type Shires, desolate howling deserts or leafy, elf-filled forests; this is a mucky, violent, industrial city.

These are perhaps the story’s gre

Omgoodness this book sucks you right in and doesn't let you out until its done! Land Of Midnight Days is fast paced and action packed. I genuinely couldn't put this book down when I picked it up as I needed to know what happened next.

Jeremiah the main character is a half Elwyn/half human and a genius with the flute. He is an amazing character, he is broken but he refuses to give up. I think he is also the first mute character that I have come across and it was really interesting watching the st

Katrina Jack managed to accomplish what I thought would never happen--enjoy urban fantasy. It was never a genre that I cared for. However, from the outset of her storytelling, I was won over. She clarifies the immediate tension via a `message' of hate. By describing Jeremiah's more slender-than-usual frame, we imagine what the Wannabes look like. The girl with the scar in the window was haunting and kept me interested in the plot. And then we have Ezra. Well, who could not move on to chapter two ...more

Jeremiah - the protagonist of the book definitely stole my heart in this beautiful, beautiful read 'Land of the Midnight Days'. My heart went to the protagonist from the start as we the trials and tribulations that he has to go through. Add to that the absolutely realistic approach of the author in the portrayal of a mute boy and the problems that he has to face, coupled with the prejudices of society. The setting of the book is quite stark, hopeless and despairing. There is an atmosphere of glo ...more

A dystopian fantasy, set in a futuristic city and modernising demons and elves and ogres in a highly original way. Intended for a YA audience but complex enough to interest any age. I took the book on holiday and couldn't wait to get back from whatever I was doing to read the next bit. A real page turner by a talented new writer, clever and exciting.

I had the pleasure to be sent this book for an honest review.
This book is folklore (elves and ogres) meets Dystopian fantasy. I was very impressed with this book. It was a fast read (in one sitting) and it was really enjoyable.
I quite enjoyed it, I'm looking toward the rest.

I'd had the pleasure of reading a great deal of this book on a writing site long, long ago, but was never able to finish the book until recently. Wow! This book definitely lived up to all the wonderful things I'd heard about it from other readers. The story clips along at breakneck speed, never letting up for a second, as Jeremiah is plunged into unimaginable danger.

The author has created a world where danger lurks around every corner and the general population are so cowed by fear, that they w

From the first paragraph I was enchanted into the world of Midnight Days. I felt as if this young urban science fiction/fantasy books was telling me about my world now… I could totally relate to not fitting in, to varied prejudice, to a shared reality in which you have no power or control, seemingly. I was so excited and refreshed to read this book. I am a used book dealer. I generally searched for holiday gifts in book stores and libraries, finding the exact perfect one. This book will be that ...more

A really different read, Land of Midnight Days entranced me. I like reading fantasy stories so when asked to read and review this one I was pleased to do so. Although the setting for the story is a really rather dreadful inner city, our hero is a strong character who makes a good role model for YA readers. Jeremiah faces a difficult situation with courage and strength which is sure to endear him to a variety of readers. I would be happy to recommend this book to older teen readers and adults who ...more

Superior urban fantasy with believable characters and a well-plotted storyline. I read this in one go, which does not happen often, and will probably read it a few more times over the years.

I began writing fantasy fiction at the age of fourteen and have been mildly obsessed with it ever since. I completed my MA in Creative Writing, at Liverpool John Moores University. In the summer of 2009, HORIZON was shortlisted at the annual novel writing competition, Pulp Idol, part of Liverpool’s Writing On The Wall Festival. I also attended a weekend writing course at Ty Neywdd, Centre for Writ ...more
