Burning Midnight – book review

Burning Midnight

Burning Midnight is an alluring and original book, written by Will McIntosh.

When seventeen year-old David Sullivan is a sphere dealer at a flea market. No one knows where the brilliant-coloured spheres come from. One day they were just there, hidden all over the earth like huge gemstones. Burn a pair and their make you a little better: an inch taller, skilled at math, better-looking. The rarer the sphere, the more expensive – and the greater the improvement.

When Sully meets Hunter, a girl with a natural talent for finding spheres, the two start searching together. One day they find a Gold – a colour no one has ever seen. And when Alex Holliday, Sully’s rival, learns what they have, he will go to any lengths to take it from him.

There’s no question about it – the Gold is worth millions. But what does it actually do? None of them is aware of it yet, but the fate of the world rests on this little golden orb. All the world fights over the spheres, but no one knows where they come from, what their powers are, or why they’re here.Read More »
