Title: The Girl at Midnight
Author: Melissa Gray
Rating: 3/5 stars
I came for the pretty cover. I kept reading due to the interesting premise. I was ultimately disappointed as overall, the book was quite forgettable.
The plot centres around the conflict between the Avicen (a race of birdlike people) and Drakharin (a dragon-like warrior race). These two ancient races have been bitter enemies for centuries, with no end to their war in sight. The fabled Firebird is a creature that once found, will resolve their struggle for good. Echo is a teenage pickpocket who has been raised by the Avicen, through fate she finds the map to the mythical Firebird.
