Overview

The Trimarks are planning an invasion. And the only thing standing in their way is Allie and the moonstone.

All Allie wants is a normal life - friends, boys, school dances. Right. Like that's going to happen.

In two weeks, during the summer solstice, Allie's going to face the biggest challenge of her life, fighting against time to save the world from a Trimark invasion. You'd think the world of weird might leave her alone to plan how she's going to survive. But nothing in Allie's world is simple or easy, especially when she's attacked by Trimarks trying to steal the moonstone. Then Sammie disappears into the faery world of Boundless, and Allie must follow and bring her home, only to find the fairy queen, Luminata, isn't about to let Allie leave. So, what's a girl with magical powers supposed to do?

Fortunately, she has a team to help her, a team with special talents of their own.

Marilee Brothers is a former high school teacher turned full-time author. She married her college crush, and they have three sons. Marilee lives in Washington State, where she's hard at work on her next book.

Marilee does a fantastic job of concluing the 'Unbidden Magic' series with "Midnight Moon",  I loved how the characters grew and developed throughout the series and was honestly surprised at the questions I was left with at the end of the book....maybe another series coming along that intertwines these characters?? I look forward to more from Marilee in the future. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

I had a lot of fun reading this book. The only problem is I liked it so much that I have to go back and read all of them now. :) The characters are real and have real life things to do and real life problems to deal with, along with saving the world. As if a girl didn't have enough to do in one day. I also really liked the humor and exchanges between them. Silly things happen in life and they do in this book too. This is the last book in the series and I will be reading all of them. 5 stars for me

Brothers has mastered the art of writing a series. I love that she puts just enough background info into the beginning of the novel to jump start your memory as to what happened last time, but doesn’t piddle around repeating details that you already know. She also picks up the storyline that she began but never repeats the same events twice. The characters stay the same throughout, only growing as they age or encounter various trials and hardships. Everything flows from the beginning of the first novel to the very end of the last, but she doesn’t rely on cliff-hangers to keep her readers coming back. Her phenomenal storytelling and immaculate writing does that all on its own. Brothers has a very straightforward and approachable writing style that carries the readers easily through this novel. This story almost made me cry, and definitely made me laugh. Brothers never fails to bring the humour of real life into her work. Her phenomenal descriptions build multiple worlds with ease and clarity. I also appreciate the fact that she changes her writing style in minute ways between these worlds. It makes it very easy to differentiate between these worlds and to picture them clearly. I also must give Brothers kudos for having created an entire mythology upon which to base her story. She does pull parts from different places, but as a whole this mythology is unique and nearly flawless.  I absolutely love the characters in this series. By the end of this novel I felt like these were people that I was friends with in school. I can’t believe how real to life Brothers made these supernaturals seem. Each character was consistent with themselves, with the role that they had to play in the series, and with their age. I really appreciate the fact that the teens in this series didn’t get married, engaged, or vow to stay together for eternity. They realise that they’ve still got the rest of college and high school to go and that life with change a great deal throughout those times.  Now, I do have to say that I really didn’t expect the twisty, turney, topsey turvey racetrack of a trip that we took here but it was phenomenal just the same. It was the perfect ending to this series, but I am very sad that I now have to let the characters go. Please note that I received this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review

In the last installment of the series, the action increases and there is a time-sensitive quest that Allie must finish to save the world and fulfill her prophecy.  Several roadblocks are thrown in her path, yet she has grown enough and is starting to realize her own personal strength, and she adds a new level of determination to become all that she can be.  A well-formulated ending closes the open holes in some of the stories, while a few unanswered questions remain, this was a satisfactory ending: bringing to close this time with Allie.  As a series, this is a good read, destined to become a favorite of many YA readers.  Marilee Brothers has managed to create characters and situations that while operating in fantasy still manage to hold some grounding in reality.   As an overall read, I would rate this series at a 4: a clever series penned and highly appropriate for the YA market with plenty of fantastical creatures and a clever incorporation on a less than stellar parent.  With Allie as the main character, her dalliances with the multitude of boys flocking her way do not distract her to the level of “must have a boy to survive” and her smart, sarcastic wit combined with moments of self-doubt that never quite undermine her forward progress make her a heroine that is easy to relate to for readers of all ages.  I received an eBook copy through NetGalley for purpose of honest review for the IOB Tours.  I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
