Midnight comes up against an organization that promises metahumans that they will regain their powers, that their bands still work. It’s a cult that pulls in the friend of Midnight’s new acquaintance, Amanda, also a former metahuman, who’ll do anything to get her back. What’s happening to the missing metahumans? Can Midnight divine the Receptive’s true motives, free Amanda’s friend, and locate the mysterious device that he lost?
Fun, fast, and unique. Worth the read.
For those of us that are real fans of the series, and have always been interested in the Midnight character, then this is the book that you have been waiting for. It is a short story of what happened just after the Battle, when all the Metabands went dead (or so everyone thought), and there was a time without Meta’s. It follows Midnight, and his human alter ego, as they try and help a young girl who has lost her friend to a religious movement, a cult of sorts, that is using the recent Battle outcome and lack of Meta’s to lure in unsuspecting people to take advantage of them for nefarious reasons.
Midnight thinks this should be easy to rescue the girl, but soon learns there is a lot more going on that he first assumed.
This is a really fascinating look at the character of Midnight a decade before he meets Connor, at who he was then, and what he was like. We also get cameos of several other characters from the series and how they met Midnight down the track.
Further to this, there are multiple references to his past BEFORE the Battle, giving us unknown history and context, adding a lot more depth to this mysterious character. Midnight is a favourite of anyone who reads the series, and it would be fascinating to see who came out on top, Midnight or Batman (there has to be a Comic deal there somewhere doesn’t there??), but for now, if you are a fan of the series, grab this book and devour it like I did, for the information, history, context for the Meta Universe, and best of all, it is a great fun read. Reynolds knows how to captivate his readers and write a proper superhero story.
This is a must for fans, however, if you don’t know the series, you could still pick it up and actually get into it for the story, without having read any of the other Meta Series. It does makes a decent standalone story – it is just good fun.
