Publisher's Summary

Scarlett Bernard is used to cleaning up messes. As a human who cancels out any magic around her, Scarlett's job is to keep the supernatural world hidden - at any cost.

But on the eve of the Vampire Trials, a two-day tribunal that allows the otherworldly community to air their grievances, Scarlett receives a blood-soaked message from Molly, her estranged former roommate. Molly, a vampire, had been living with 12 human college students...and in one terrible night, she slaughtered them all.

Scarlett believes Molly's been set up, but no one else in the Old World agrees with her. Meanwhile, the true perpetrator is determined to make sure Molly goes on trial for the massacre - and the penalty is death.

With less than two days to prove her friend's innocence, Scarlett calls on former LAPD detective Jesse Cruz to help her dig into Molly's past. But no one - Molly included - wants Scarlett and Jesse to bring the terrible truth to light.

    "Good book well narrated"
    Where does Midnight Curse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's a good book better than average but not in my top 10


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way characters had developed from the earlier series


    Which character – as performed by Amy McFadden – was your favourite?

    Can't quite decide between Scarlett or Jesse, though I also just love Shadow the "dog"<br/>


    Any additional comments?

    This book follows on about 3 years after the original Scarlett Barnard series and also features a character and information from the boundary magic series so well worth reading those first. Looking forwards to the next one in this series as I like the way Scarlett has grown.

    "It is a Scarlett Bernard book"

    For some reason they have decided to place this book under another series called Disruptive Magic as far as I am concerned it is a continuation of the Scarlett Bernard books only 3 years later. So if you liked those books continue to this series apart from yet again the over use of the word "incredulously" this book is fully of action. Scarlett is gutsier than ever and all of the characters are back yet more seasoned. I love the fact that their are links to the Boundary Magic books so if you haven't listen to these already make you give them ago so you understand one of the characters that keeps on being mentioned.

    "Entertaining story, Good narration."

    This story was entertaining enough. It was a bit long at 11 hours and could have been shortened a bit.

    It did keep my attention and started out good. There just seemed to be a little bit of things thrown in that didn't need to be there. The romance portion was really non existent.

    The story line and plot was good, but like I said the book could have been shortened and I did figure out who the bad vamp was after the first clue. LOL so it is not a very good mystery or surprise if your looking for one. There was a lot of dialogue throughout which I really liked.

    The characters were okay. I liked Jesse the most to be honest. Scarlett was okay for the most part. This book was written partly in the first person and partly in the third person, which made it better than if it had been completely in the first person.

    As for the narration, it was great. I really like Amy McFadden. She does a great job on the male voices and reads with emotion. She has a great reading voice and is a pleasure to listen to.

    "Null and Void Are Back"

    This is a continuation of the Scarlett Bernard series. It is full of action, conflict and witty conversations. I started to read this book in the morning and listened to it all day until it was finished. Melissa Olson did a great job writing this book. I look forward to the next book.

    "Null & Void!"

    Another fantastic Scarlett story! I wish it had continued where it ended, i want to know more!! Melissa Olsen is a fantastic writer, her books are easy to read and keep my interest. i also look forward to her next Allison Lex Luthor book also, I like when she crosses series with these characters.
    I look forward to getting her next books as soon as thet are out.
    This book is absolutely worth the read!

    "started slow, but got much better"
    Would you try another book from Melissa F. Olson and/or Amy McFadden?

    Slow start, but after first 5 or 6 chapters, story, and characters were really good. I am ready to read book 2!


    Would you recommend Midnight Curse to your friends? Why or why not?

    Pretty good read!


    Was Midnight Curse worth the listening time?

    yes

    Story
    "Hmmm..."

    So I'm not really sure how I feel about this series. It's like dating a sweet guy who just doesn't give you that "WOW" feeling. You want to stick with its because you could see yourself really liking it, but there are times when you just want to let it go. ... lmao... that how I feel about Scarlett. Sometimes I feel like her story is about to get deeper and really pull me in. But then she says something truly stupid that doesnt fit with the story... or the author contradicts something she has set up in the past.

    But there are things I like about where the story is going. Shadow is a good addition. She gets excited about killing people. That's hilarious. It's not written like other fantasy stories with close pets. Most other books the dog is a good guy and pushes the character to do good things. This is a new twist. I likey.

    My troubles stem from the foundation of the story line. Scarlett is a Null. She voids out magic. But there are times when her null Ness works and times when it doesnt. At one point she is in the room with two vampires fighting... they remain vampires. But during the same time Jesse pushes another vampire again a wall and because Scarlett is inside the vampire becomes human.... WTH.

    The story for this book was the best of the series. There is a real mystery for Scarlett to solve. Her relationship with Eli seems very realistic. The book was interesting enough that I will buy the next. But it will have to get me more invested in the characters to become a favorite.

    "This is not the first book."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I spent most of the book feeling like I was on book three or four of a series, not on book 1. It was frustrating. Turns out all the rehashing of backstory actually had its own series, that is now kinda ruined for me because I read this book first.


    Would you recommend Midnight Curse to your friends? Why or why not?

    Read the Scarlett Bernard series first.

    "So glad Scarlet is back!"

    Really enjoyed this confident, earnest "null". She is still cleaning up after the sups and when given the opportunity to save her former estranged roommate with her almost ex boyfriend, she takes care of business! I really like Amy McFadden too.
