Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The third book in the Midnight Dragonfly series offers a new villain, and Trinity Monsour cannot stop him with her psychic abilities alone. Local teenagers are committing suicide after taking a drug called Bliss, but Trinity’s visions are suddenly blocked from seeing who is responsible. As she tries to help solve the case, her friendship with Dylan becomes increasingly complicated and secrets from their entwined pasts finally come to light. A compelling, ethereal story that deftly winds suspense and romance through the haunted streets of New Orleans. Grades 8-10. --Bethany Fort

More About the Author

Most people who know me think I'm your nice, ordinary average wife and mom of two young kids. They see someone who does all that ordinary stuff, like grocery shopping, walking the dog, going to baseball games, and somehow always forgetting to get the house cleaned and laundry done.

What they don't know is that more often than, I am somewhere far, far away, in an extraordinary world, deeply embroiled in solving a riddle or puzzle or crime, testing the limits of possibility, exploring the unexplained, and holding my breath while two people fall in love.

Those who do know have learned to go easy on me. They know what my blank stare means, and they know when I politely nod, I haven't heard a word. I even have a few awesome friends who know to call me with gentle reminders about things like the first day of school and neighborhood block parties!

Regardless of which world I'm in, my story worlds or the real world, I love rain and wind and thunder and lightning, the first warm kiss of spring and the first cool whisper of fall, family, friends, and animals, dreams, happy endings, and...chocolate chip cookies.

Format: Paperback
I'm a big fan of the paranormal. What you may not know is that I'm also really into the mysticalness of New Orleans. I even once took a trip there for Halloween, and went on a (sadly) unsuccessful ghost hunting tour.

So Ellie James' MIDNIGHT DRAGONFLY trilogy (Griffin Teen) has always hooked me in that department -- a creepy, mystical paranormal mystery set in New Orleans. And with her final installment, James does not disappoint.

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS from here on out.
You've been warned.

At the end of BROKEN ILLUSIONS, Trinity was dealing with a lot of stuff. Her boyfriend Chase had died, killed by her aunt's boyfriend (a cop she thought she could trust). Her emotions were all over the place when it came to Dylan, who continued to show up just when she needed him most. Trinity always struggled with the whole Dylan thing -- fighting the connection they had -- but now her grief over Chase makes things all the more confusing.

Her aunt is not coping with all that's happened either, going from sullen silence to redecorating on a whim to over-the-top cheerfulness.

So when Trinity gets a chance to use her visions to (possibly) help someone, she kind of jumps at the diversion. Unfortunately, the object of her assistance may be mixed up in some bad stuff, and, well, Trinity kind of has a reputation for KNOWING things. People doing bad stuff are not keen on having someone like her poking around.

And, then there's Dylan.

We finally find out why these two have such a strong connection, and James gives us more about Trinity's past, wrapping up the story while keeping the pages turning at a furious pace. Expect some late nights with this one. Some unanswered questions linger, but that's okay, because what is New Orleans without a little mystery? I've enjoyed traipsing around NOLA with Trinity and her friends, and look forward to seeing what's next from James.

Fragile Darkness is the third and final book in the Midnight Dragonfly Series. If you haven't read the first two books: Shattered Dreams: A Midnight Dragonfly Novel & Broken Illusions: A Midnight Dragonfly Novel, you really should start there.

I loved this series and I'm a bit sad knowing this is probably the last we'll see of Trinity & her friends. While the series is considered YA, mainly because the heroine is a teenager, I feel it has just as much appeal for adults.

Once again the reader is transported to New Orleans, this time during Mardi Gras. The settings are written with such detail that the reader will feel as if you are right there in the middle of the celebrations. The character development, Trinity especially, is very realistic. In this final book she truly comes to terms with who and what she is, as well as all that has happened to her. Of course we also learn some more about the mysterious Dylan Fourcade, and his role in Trinity's life. I also liked that a few of the lesser characters evolved as well.

I can definitely say this series is one that I will gladly read again and again.
One of my favorite lines: "Memories fade" he murmured. "But dreams are always there."

It's the best out of the three. Trinity finally doesn't have to deal with someone going missing. Awesomest book ever....
