Midnight City by J. Barton Mitchell caught my eye immediately. I know we’re never supposed to judge books by their cover but I think most of us are liars if we say it doesn’t factor in to if we take a second look at a book. I was really intrigued with the title as well. Reading the synopsis – “post-apocalyptic” – yeah, I’m sold. Alien invaders, even better! Young people with mysterious powers.. come on now, the cake is sweet enough! I’m excited that it’s the first book in a series The Conquered Earth, I love a good series!

Midnight City by J. Barton Mitchell

In a post-apocalyptic world controlled by alien invaders, two teens and a young girl with mysterious powers embark on a dangerous journey. What they find will change everything…

Earth has been conquered. An extraterrestrial race known as The Assembly has abducted the adult population, leaving the planet’s youth to fend for themselves. In this treacherous landscape, Holt, a bounty hunter, is transporting his prisoner Mira when they discover Zoey, a young girl with powerful abilities who could be the key to stopping The Assembly. As they make their way to the cavernous metropolis of Midnight City, the trio must contend with freedom fighters, mutants, otherworldly artifacts, pirates, feuding alien armies, and perhaps most perilous of all: Holt and Mira’s growing attraction to each other.

  1. Wow! October 30th cannot get here fast enough! I need to read this book like NOW.

  2. Well I was on board after the fist sentence of the synopsis with the whole “Post-apocalyptic future” theme. I have a thing for books set in the future and the more crazy things happen the more I like it. I would love to get my hands on a copy when it comes out!

  6. This sounds really interesting! I don’t feel like there are as many alien books out there anymore, and that is an area I think I’d like to see more books on. Great pick! New follower.
