Determined not to fail Claire again, Dan vows to help her heal. Together, they begin to unlock Claire's lost memories only to uncover a conspiracy that puts them and any future they might have together in deadly danger.
Shadows at Midnight wasn't as good as I was expecting. The overall story was still pretty amazing but I found that there was more background and description than I was expecting. This is why I only give Shadows at Midnight 3 stars. I was hoping for more Dan and Claire time, there was quite a bit of it but not as much as I would have personally liked.
Shadows at Midnight read more like a first novel at times. I found it too descriptive in places and not so much in others. I thought the first few chapters weren't the best at setting up a beginning for the story with the relationship that was going to come from Dan and Claire but when the story got going I really fell in love with the characters and the overall storyline.
Shadows at Midnight is a great romantic suspense that I enjoyed thoroughly but wished there had been more to it and that it was so clear who the bad guy was.
