Scott Westerfeld received considerable and well-deserved acclaimed for his recent YA Steampunk adventure Leviathan and he remains at the forefront of both YA and grown-up genre works. His Midnighters series should appeal to both audiences with its mix of high-concept ideas including numerology and linguistics - and all three books The Secret Hour, Touching Darkness and Blue Noon are being reissued this month by Atom.
"As the new girl at Bixby High School, Jessica Day expected some unwelcome attention. What she didn't expect was to feel an instant connection to a stranger in the corridor ...Who is this boy dressed in black? And why can she feel his eyes following her wherever she goes? The answers will have to wait until the sun goes down, for here in Bixby, midnight is the time for secrets; secrets that Jessica is going to find out, whether she wants to or not. "
