Nate is a terrible person. And Jaimie! I knew it! The Fear angle added a nice twist in this one, and it is certainly a pleasure to have Angelica back.

As the story continues in the Fear Street Nights trilogy, we find that a month has passed since the death of Candy at the hands of the Night People. Of course, they didn’t set out to murder her, but as they attempted to steal back Angelica Fear’s amulet, there was a terrible accident. Nevertheless, the incident is still haunting Nate and his friends.

As the book begins, we find it being narrated by Nate once again, but only as a lead up to the

Ada, Jamie's friend becomes very jealous of Dana and soon after dies during a confrontation between the two girls. Dana during this time and blacked out and gotten dizzy so that she hadn't ...more

This book is continued from the book Moonlight Secrets. Lewis thinks all is over and good, that the spirit that once haunted them was finally gone and dead. And that no more of his friends would die like in the last book. But was he wrong. He thought killing the friend that was being controlled by the spirit would stop things. But all that did was kill a poor girl named Candy, because spirits can't die because they are already dead -_-. Well because of that the spirit doesn't leave them alone ...more

This book was appallingly written, which just isn't forgiveable when I know full well that Stine is capable of much better.

The book is getting more interesting,intense,and scary from the first one. when the new character came along really represents herself through this new chapter of the book. I really didn't expect that Dana would be the main character as in the author turn a whole new world and new perspectives with a different character point of view. Also, the details of the killings really scared the bloody out of me. It is really worth to read it and once again I only read this book word by word,chapter by ...more

This was a really fun one. Annoying teenage girls are picked off one by one by an unknown killer, and boy are their death scenes inventive, the ice-skate between the eyes was hella cool. It actually reminded me of that wonderful old 80s Canadian slasher, Curtains. I liked this entry in the Fear Street Nights series much more than the first book.

this book is for youngers it is the best so for u guys that think this book is not good readers r not people so plz just read over that book .
and once yr done u'll see the good in it and i know u'll love it
The book starts off where we left the previous book. Back with Nate. However, we soon switch over to the real protagonist. A girl named Dana Fear. And she is a big reason why I rated this book a 4 stars instead of a 5 stars.

The book was good, no it was brilliant. But, the characters just sucked. I will post this in spoiler tags as it is a spoiler/might spoil stuff, which I don't want. (view spoiler)

Horrible things start to happen after Dana moves to Shadyside High. She had had a terrible year back home and she's "forced" to move in with her cousin Jamie. Dana meets Jamie's friends, called themselves the Night People (because they sneak out at night), at the night bar. Accidents begin to happen one after one. First, it was Ada, then Whitney, and the students blame Dana for all these because she is a Fear. They think she is the murderer. However, Dana finds out that Angelica Fear is the one ...more

This book was about these kids who sneak out every night, and trying to survive from getting murdered by Simon and Angelica Fear. A year after Lewis and Jamie fell into the evil spirits grave, the Night People had a new member, Dana Fear. Unlike the other Fears, she is not related to Angelica and Simon. She starts to get dizzy a lot of times, and starts killing two people. Towards the end of this book, things now were on track, Dana knew what was going on with her. Angelica Fear inside Jamie's ...more

This book is a book recommanded by my friend from another school in brooklyn, it is about a girl named Dana Fear. Her last name is the trait of her family... fear. Her family have magic powers of darkness. One day things happened to a person Dana dislikes, which is Ada. and everyone assume it was her! I was really mad, because even if Dana hates a person, she won't do anything about it because shes really nice. At night time she goes to the bar to get closer to friends so she won't be an ...more

The interesting cover of this book attracted my attention, and i knew it was going to be good! This book is about a family, a family called the Fears. The Fears are known to have dark magic power that can hurt somebody like making feather come out of someone's nose, which I thought was pretty disgusting. One reason that kept me reading this book is when Dana, the new fear that came and live in with Nate and the night people, which are teenagers who decide to hang out at a bar late at night. ...more

This book was about a girl and her friends. All of them at night sneaked out of their houses and went to a bar. That was their favorite place to hang out. It al started to get weird when her and her boyfriend went out to some haunted place. After a while things didn't go so what are they goign to do?
Midnight Games is a thriller. It keeps you wondering what's going to happen next and then what's after that. The author probably is basing this book in a series of events a young person

Things you need to know if you find yourself in an R.L. Stine novel:

1. If your last name is Fear, and you're moving to Shadyside, seriously consider changing your name. At this point you'd probably get less shit from the locals if you changed it back to Fier.

2. Fear Lake is not a good location for a skating party (or any other kind of party, probably, but especially skating. Look at Broken Hearts if you don't believe me). The clue is in the name.

3. Boys who vanish every time you're about to get

R.L Stine's narration as a girl is very convincing. Even though I am not quite sure if I reaaaally like Dana Fear. I don't like hot girls (I'm jealous, yeah, booooo me) and it is annoying that she must go after a guy who is obviously 'tied' to another girl. Like, hello?!

Also, Nate is the biggest jerk I ever encountered in a book. He goes after Dana because she is the hot stuff at the moment but poof, he will disappear the moment troubles cross his radar. He is not even there to support Dana when

This is a really scary book about a girl named dana fear and people make problems with her just because here last name is fear, some when a girl is killed all fingers point to her, but the only ones that belivie that she didn't to it is her cousin jamie and her friend Nate.
This book can be connected to a movie that was about a man who didn't kill his wife and kids but he was put in jail because his father was a killer, and he was put in for life.

not having read the first book, I cant really comment about the whole series but for this book, I find that the story was a bit slow.

Since it;s a series, I would much like if in each books the author would put a bit of synopsis in the beginning to let the readers know what happen in the earlier book. Readers may not have read the earlier book or may have forgotten some of it. It would be nice to have a reminder.

The pace of this book was just nice. not too fast nor too slow.

I love the last part

In this book, Midnight Games is about how there were these college kids come to a haunted house on Fear Street, and stole the amulet of a Fear family member. Then the spirit of the Fear came back and possessed an average looking girl. Her cousin is looked upon as the murderer of 3 girls.
there wasn't really a message behind this story.
