Jessica is a typical 16-year-old girl, who happens to be born at midnight. This doesn’t mean anything to her until the day she moves with her family to Bixby. Soon she discovers that she and a few others, the Midnighters, are able to live one extra hour every midnight, while everyone else is frozen. This is all fun until she learns that they are not the only ones moving through midnight. Darklings and Slithers are coming after her and she has to be protected.

The first book is introducing us to this new midnight world and follows Jessica as she learns about her new powers. On the next book Darklings and Slithers are not the only ones after the Midnighters, humans are starting to get involved in a dangerous chase and a secret from a long lost Midnighter comes to the surface. The final book of the series climaxes the action while one of the Midnighters is going through a huge change, he’s becoming a halfling, half-midnighter half-darkling. Also, mysteriously enough, time frozes in the middle of the day, leaving humans unprotected from the terrors of midnight. Finally, there is one last confrontation with the Darklings on the most dangerous midnight of them all, Halloween.
