This is a dystopian YA fiction, a genre which has been on the rise since the success of the The Hunger Games. The story here is original and there are plenty of interesting characters involved in an alternative world. Even if you wouldn't normally read YA fiction, this is worth a go!

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.

Powerful storytelling by a fresh new talent. There have been quite a few dystopian future-type books around but few deliver as well as this one. I think it is down to the characters and how believable Kate Jack makes them, which means you care what happens. Jeremiah is a very good main character and I think this book hits the mark for its target audience.

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 struggle of trying to make himself understood when the other person couldn't use sign language. I thought this was all handled extremely well and the author also highlighted the presumptions that people have about differently abled people. I think the description in the synopsis of Jeremiah is perfect, he knows how to survive, but not how to live.

The characters are all fleshed out really well and there isn't a single character that I didn't find interesting. The author has updated elves, ogres and demons in a really interesting way and in a way to make them work in an urban environment instead of rolling hills and valleys. Apart from Jeremiah, I really liked the characters of Joe, Big Fred and I thought Ezra's character wasn't nice but was interesting. As a parent I just couldn't find anything redeeming in either Sylvan or Zeb as both of them let Jeremiah down in the worst way time and time again.

The world described is one of violence and of people just trying to survive. It is a very bleak place and one that can be recognised as somewhere we could end up one day. You can feel the hopelessness of the population, though there are spots of light that are shining through the darkness and hopefully they will be the one to succeed by the end of the story.

Land Of Midnight Days is one of those gripping books that once I started, I couldn't put down because I just had to know what happened next. It begins with a chase and basically carries the reader from one dramatic event to the next. The characters are vividly brought to life in such a way that you can identify with each of them, and the City is described in such detail that you could almost be there, living through the drama. I really enjoyed this novel and can't wait read the next part of the trilogy. I absolutely recommend it!!

This book has fast moving plot with great characters and plot twists. The style of writing sets the atmosphere and mood of the locations, character and locations well. I look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy and more works by this author.

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?
I love the line about Jeremiah: He knew how to survive but not how to live. The world Ms. Jack paints here, one of violence and apathy, is one we can relate to; as we likewise understand Jeremiah's weariness over contempt and bigotry. How compelling it is when the author then weaves in something beautiful.
Throughout, this tale keeps the reader riveted. I am glad that I obtained a copy of this. Three cheers for Land of Midnight Days.

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 won't rise up to defend themselves. It's a world populated by Gangers, Wanna-Be's, Ogres, and Elwyn. Jeremiah Tully, a mute half-Elwyn, faces constant hatred and prejudice. His life is dictated by a cruel and abusive guardian (Ezra) who provides Jeremiah a place to live in exchange for playing his flute at Ezra's club. As if ordinary life isn't dangerous enough, there is an epic battle is brewing and Jeremiah somehow finds himself at the center of it.

Jeremiah is a sympathetic character, but many of the characters who are supposed to be "good guys" are not very likable at all. The people who should have Jeremiah's best interests at heart sometimes become so caught up in Jeremiah's destiny, they forget he's a person in his own right. As Jeremiah struggles to survive, he is also facing an internal struggle as he realizes his life is full of secrets and disappointment.

I'd recommend this book to older teens and adults who enjoy complex, well-written urban fantasy. It's definitely worth your time reading. You won't be disappointed!
