Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Launching a duology, Holly weaves together vampire lore, time travel, and uninhibited passion. 1950s teenager Grace Michaels is killed by her abusive father. She awakens in a place between life and death, from which a spirit guide sends her back in time to 1460. Mercenary Christian Durand is surprised by Grace's ghostly appearance, but that doesn't stop him from initiating unconventional sexual encounters with the generically innocent yet oddly worldly young woman. Her rival for Christian's attention is upyr (vampire) queen Nim Wei, who sexually manipulates Christian's band of warriors and makes a deal with Christian's cruel father in hopes of seducing Christian into being her undead companion forever. Explicit scenes of promiscuous sex and violence, sometimes in close proximity, will appeal to fans of Charlaine Harris and Laurell K. Hamilton, but may put off readers of more traditional romance.

After looking through some of the other reviews, I'm not sure we read the same book. I'll preface this review by saying that I am a huge fan of Emma Holly's erotica and was thrilled when she began the Upyr series. I love erotic romance and paranormal romance, but all too often authors in both genres write predictable stories with stereotypes instead of characters, even if the sex between the main characters is sizzling hot. Holly writes smoking hot erotic scenes, but what makes the difference for me is that her characters have layers, depth and complexity, they behave in a realistic manner (aside from the magical-blood-drinking-creature of it all) and the dialogue is solid. Her heroes and heroines are far from perfect, and yet their flaws make them unique and give them a wonderful realism. This is why for me, this series is one of the best in the genre in the last several years.

And yet, I'm totally torn on how I felt about the book on the whole and where book #2 seems to be headed. I both loved and HATED it, and I'll tell you why.


The only love that medieval soldier Christian Durand has known in his life is that of his friends and comrades in arms, until he is visited by a spectral young girl named Grace. Although she never tells him this, Grace is from hundreds of years in the future and her last memory before dying is of being battered by her angry, violent father because she kissed a boy. An 'angel' in a strange limbo realm agrees to show her someone who is her soul's dearest friend through time, and she finds herself stuck with Christian.

In 1950 Ohio, Grace is 18. Her father beats her. The current beating causes her to go unconscious. Her spirit travels to 1460 Switzerland where she meets Christian. Grace is able to switch back and forth between ghost form and human form. She and Christian have a lot of sex.

Christian's father Gregori is evil and has Christian whipped for being kind to a puppy. Gregori is the leader of a group of mercenary soldiers including his son. Nim is an Upyr, an immortal race superior to humans who drink blood and avoid the sun. She hires Gregori's men to escort her on a two-week trip. She wants to seduce Christian, but he's not interested. Therefore she has sex with various other soldiers. When she drinks their blood, they become stronger for a while.

The plot didn't do anything for me. I wasn't engaged or entertained. It was plodding rather than interesting. There are bad guys and bad things happen. Grief causes the hero to do certain things. One storyline was evil dad wants son to be subservient to him so he kills everything the son loves. It's not a bad idea, but it wasn't developed well. It needed more.

Nim had an odd role at the end. We don't understand her thoughts and feelings and why she did what she did at the end.

Grace's last name was Gladwell in the beginning of the book. At the end it was Michaels. Was this a typo? It wasn't explained.

There is a lot of sex, including rear door activity. There are also gay men with each other.

Gregori asked Nim to seduce his soldiers to give them strength. He said he would then kill Christian's soldiers and give Christian to Nim. She does this.

Devil at Midnight by Emma Holly
Paranormal Romance -Nov 2nd, 2010
5 stars

Devil at Midnight is an amazing new installment to Emma Holly's Upyr series. In this book the author explores reincarnated love between 2 touching and abused characters which this reader did not want to end!! But even if you are new to this series this book can easily be read by itself.

Grace Gladwell is young and beautiful but she has a terrible secret. Her father is abusive and demeaning and in a fit of rage he kills her. Grace finds herself in heaven where an angel tells her she has the chance to meet her best friend/soulmate. Grace jumps at the chance even though she finds herself meeting him for the 1st time as a ghost. She discovers he is a lonely and honorable young man named Christian Durand who lives under the brutal and watchful eye of his mercenary father in Medieval England. Together they find a rare connection that leads to a sweet and poignant love. But their budding love and sexual attraction are hindered by Grace's incorporeal form and a dangerous immortal named Nim Wei who wants Christian for herself. And is willing to do anything to keep him.

I simply LOVED this book. Emma Holly has written a steamy romance that made me blush as Grace and Christian try to make love although they can't really touch each other. This only added to the sexual tension as I really wanted them to be together. The villains were diabolical and ruthless and I was surprisingly sad for the lonely Nim Wei. The only disappointment for some readers will be that this book does not conclude! In the next book called Angel at Dawn Grace and Christian will continue their story. But while I would usually be upset with this I can only be glad!!
