I've been an avid reader of Beverly Jenkins' books since 'Before the Dawn'. So when 'Midnight' was released I rushed out to pick up my copy. I read all my books from other authors first because I knew that Ms. Jenkins' work is always spicy, hot, informative, passionate, and a page turner. I could not have been more disappointed. The book started out great; however, the end was so disappointing because it seemed rushed. The ending didn't really seem to go with the story line, in addition the book seemed to focus more on the history of the war than the actual characters. It was a lackluster performance in my opinion and her editor should have sent her back to rewrite the ending. I know that Ms. Jenkins' work is always OUTSTANDING so to read this was frustrating to say the least!!!
