This story gives you a good insight into Dare and why he is so secretive. You find yourself really liking Marcia and how she takes all of the bad things that her life has given her and overcomes them with grace. She is one very smart and determined lady. Throughout the story, you wonder if Marcia will come to see Dare in a different light or if she will continue to be wary of him. What was really fun was reading about two adults with having children when they are considering their decisions. That really brings a very realistic quality to the story because people do that every day.
Having read the I Bring the Fire series, I really enjoyed having Bodhi, Amy, Steve, Rush and the rest of the characters from that series as part of this story. By bringing in new characters to a very complex world adds depth to the series. What I found very interesting was the way that Dare and Marcia saw Bodhi, Amy and Steve. That added a lot to the story, in my opinion. But no spoilers here, if you enjoyed this story and have not read the I Bring the Fire series, you really should.
For us oldsters, it is quite a treat to have attention given to a more "mature" woman, though she is a puppy compared to a 3000 year old Night Elf (commonly know as a vamp). Their chemistry is real and the reasons for their attraction are substantive, intelligent and honorable, not merely "he/she is so hot" like one reads in so many other novels.(Though they are hot ....) It is a very well developed and plausible progression -- with caution, wonder, questioning and trust issues on Marcia's part. After all, it is quite a unique pairing !
It was great fun to see what Amy, Bodhi and Steve have been up to. I'd love to have a book in this series about their evolution and adventures post Ragnarok, leading to this time period. It seems like there has been a lot going on, scientifically and magically in their world.
Magic After Midnight is a lovely combination of gentle romance and a serious challenge to the uneasy world evolving after Ragnarok. It has it all !
This a fresh take on the ever popular vampire story by way of Norse mythology , and it never feels tired. It's nice to have a more mature love story, especially with an immortal. Seriously, why would they always have so much in common with a teenager or very young adult? Everyone is different, but it's nice to see the dynamic of two people who are already parents relating to one another. Marcia is spunky but practical. She has a family to look out for after all. I found her very relatable. Of course there is conflict, but I like that the majority of the drama is kept to the teenagers.
I will say not absolutely everything gets neatly wrapped up by the end of the story, but it's still a satisfying end. I guess that leaves room for more stories in the future.
Personally, I reccomend reading both the short story and this longer novel. While the basics of Dare and Marcia's story are in both, there are things from the short story that we don't get to see here.
Give this series a try, it's well worth it.
Fast paced story, twists and turn. Marcia and Dare belong together you know this but the world of Magic and Family keeps throwing in roadblock and pitfalls.
Well worth the read
