Title: Midnight Soul
Series: Fantasyland #5
Author: Kristen Ashley

Against his will, Noctorno Hawthorne, an undercover vice cop, finds himself embroiled in magic, mayhem and parallel universes. Too late, he meets an amazing woman only to find she’s destined for his identical twin in another world. 

And things aren’t going real great there. 

Noc is recruited to help save that world. 

What he doesn’t know is his destined love resides there. 

Franka Drakkar wears a mask. A mask she never takes off to protect herself in a world of malice, intrigue and danger. 

When Franka meets Noc and he discovers her secrets, convinced she carries a midnight soul, having shielded herself from forming bonds with anyone, she struggles with accepting his tenderness and care. 

When Noc meets Franka, over wine and whiskey, her masks slips and Noc knows it’s her—only her—and he has to find a way to get her to come home with him. 

And then make her want to stay.


Midnight Soul begins with the whole gang just having saved the world and Franka lost her lover. She’s not doing so well, and she and Noc end up having a night where he feels he sees more in her than others do. However, that may not be the case, at least no one else believes him, and she doesn’t even believe him.

But, when Noc finds out some of her secrets so does her cousin, and things in Franka’s life change rather quickly.  Now, she must adjust to this new way of life, and Noc seems he can’t stay away from her.

This book was actually very good. I really enjoyed Noc and Franka’s relationship, and I enjoyed the whole plot line to this book as well! It was very interesting and kept me entertained throughout the whole story. 

The only thing that made this book not a five star to me is the fact that there was sort of something between Noc and Circe from the Other World during the beginning. I really hated that, and I thought it wasn’t really needed for them to be friends or for Noc to care since he was just that type of guy. So, to me this was just added drama, and added insecurity to Franka that was not needed, and did not enjoy reading about it.
It really wasn’t a huge deal in the book, but it was to me and that bothered me.

Other than that I thought everything else was great in the book! It ended with a  great HEA and we got to see more about the lives of previous characters and how they ended too.

I’m sad to see this series end, but I did enjoy the ending.
