Midnighters 3: Dark Noon by Scott Westerfeld

Blue Noon (Midnighters, #3)This book is the third in the series, and I gave it a rating of five out of five. The Blue Time is expanding. Soon, much of the daylight world will be consumed by the Blue Time and all of the Darklings will feast on the humans. Rex has an internal battle going on between his Darkling part and his human part. The Darkling part sometimes takes him over. Once again, Jessica is the key to stopping the Darklings, but her sister, Beth, starts to complicate things. She's very observant, and she knows Jessica has been doing something around the midnight hour. Her curiosity may lead to her death, or it may spell the end of all humans.

The plot brings the whole series to a conclusion. The Darklings are excited for the upcoming Halloween, and the Midnighers aren't sure if they can trust Rex. Midnight on Halloween may signal the death of many humans, or it may be the end of the Darklings. The resolution of the plot is surprising when you discover what's happened to Jessica. It's a little sad.
