Addison Beckett is trying to save the world. She just wish she knew how to do it. She needs her sentinel Asher's help but when he's around she's distracted by her desire for him. Things couldn't get worse or could they? Baku, a powerful enemy, has appeared to fight Addy and take her power. When a new ally appears, she takes hope. Caine Phillips knows the past history of the Machine but can he be trusted? Midnight Dawn is a fast-paced roller coaster ride filled with so many twists and turns. Addison is a very complex character. She pulled me into her world and wouldn't let me go. She is such a mixture of strength and fear. Asher is a great hero. He cares deeply for her, but keeps his distance. The other sentinels are just as addictive. They each have secrets and fears that they must deal with. I enjoyed Midnight Dawn. I can't wait for the next installment in the series (A Mortal Machine). Jocelyn Adams has a wonderfully addictive writing style.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Okay so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book after reading the 1st book and this book didn't disappoint. This story picks up where the last one left off and it is amazing because the storyline that Jocelyn created is one you can't help but get lost in. It's new and interesting and just sucks you in from the very beginning. Our main characters are Asher and Addison and the war that is about the happen (again) with the Wraith King. So much information is given to you in this book that you keep guessing at what the ending is going to be and it takes almost the entire book to figure out what is going to happen and then you have the O.M.G factor. So Asher and Addison are our main characters and these two have a lot of......background together, it's just Addison can't remember it. I don't hate Asher's character in this book as much as I did in the first, but he still annoys me and I hate that he made Addison forget things in order to "protect" her. I love the way Addison's character has evolved in this book compared to the first one and how she is learning to come into her own. Of course the rest of the society she is apart of are still a little weary and scared of her because she is different and change is always hard. But she is slowly showing them a way to help rid the world and humans of wraiths.
Addison is also looking for her counter part/soul mate. When you find that one person who makes you stronger you pretty much mate for life. Everyone in the machine should have one. Remy ends up helping Addison a lot because no one wants to really help her including Asher. And even though Asher is mean again in this book to Addison her soul can't help but long for him. When the wraith King makes and appearance everything begins to change. They only have so long before hell takes over earth and the Machine crumbles. Asher has to work with Addison and a new character comes in, saying that he is destined to be with her, she is his counter part. He is this new what Addison has been looking and waiting for? Or can her heart and soul truly remember what really happened and who her heart already belongs to, even though she can't remember. Will Addison find a way to stop the wraith King?
All of these questions get answered in this book, however, a lot more form and the end of this book has me in a very tearful emotional state because it didn't end like I thought it might. I can't wait for the next book to see what will happen in Addison's world. But this book is definitely worth reading.

Jocelyn Adams’ Midnight Dawn is a great paranormal book. There is quite an interesting cast of characters, that I don’t think I can do it justice. Izan is the founder of the Mortal Machine. It is not a machine; it is a group of sentinels, guardians, and the Architect who protect the humans from the creatures of the other dimensions. Addison is the Architect; like her mother before her. She needs to find the Shepherd and Sanctuary, rebuild the Mortal Machine, and get her mother from Baku. She has a lot to learn and she is doing it on instinct. The connection of the Architect and the Shepherd is very intimate. The Shepherd will assist her in conquering Baku, the wraith king. Izan gives her three days to do this before Baku takes over. Baku and the wraiths call Addison “Darkside Sun”. Baku wants to overtake Addison’s body, mind, and soul to do his bidding and conquer the humans. Asher is a sentinel, who was Addison’s sensei. He erased her memory; but she still has glimpses into the past. Addison is in love with Asher; but he doesn’t want her that way. He’ll do anything to protect her. Caine is a survivor from the previous group of the Mortal Machine. Asher doesn’t want Addison to choose Caine. That is just the tip of the iceberg. You must read this to see how it ends.
