** spoiler alert ** I'm a fan of talking an old tale and giving it a new spin. I read Scarlet Moon and loved it. So I was excited to get Midnight Pearl.

Pearl is raised by a poor fisherman and his wife after the fisherman saves Pearl from the sea in a major storm. She is different from everyone else. She is tall, slivery hair, and pale skin. She has one friend, Prince James, whom she meets in secret. When Pearl turns 17 her world is flipped upside down and who she really is is revealed.

I loved this book at first. I totally thought James and Pearl would end up together. I was hoping for it throughout the whole book but then sadly they didn't. It made me mad. The begging and some of the middle is very good but the ending sucked.
