The Girl at Midnight (The Girl at Midnight, #1) by Melissa Grey

The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
This YA paranormal romance is quite similar in very many ways to Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I think that people who have not read Daughter of Smoke and Bone will enjoy this book more than those of us who have read it. There are just too many parallels. Echo is a 17 year old girl who lives part time with the Avicen, who are bird people who use magic and are hidden from humans. The Avicen are in a long time war with the Drakharin, who are dragon people - also magical and hidden from the human race. Echo can use magic to travel through ordinary doors through a world between to other countries and locations almost instantaneously. When she steals a music box for The Ava, her Avicen mentor, Echo is thrust into a series of events that brings her together with the handsome prince of the Drakharin who she does not know is a prince as together they seek the mythical firebird that is supposed to bring peace to both races. The book is good, though unoriginal, and ends with a cliffhanger. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
