Readers know Charon as one the Warriors who is there to help the others fight the evil that plagues them, but he chooses to remain away from them and MacLeod Castle. He has built a life in the place that he grew up, the place where he was the most happy before his god was unbound. There is another reason for him to be there though, Laura. She is only his assistant even though he would rather her be so much more. He knows that what he is and what she is not will always keep them in a completely platonic relationship though he wants so much more.
Laura knows that Charon has secrets, she has some herself. She has run away from a life that she has no intentions of ever returning to. She also strives never to be put in that situation ever again. Laura soon finds herself with a huge target on her back due to the fact that someone cares for her. Before she can discover why she has been targeted her life is turned upside down and thrown into a world of magic and immortals that she never knew existed.
Midnight’s Captive is thrilling and fast paced. So many new elements are brought into this magical series with this installment. I was also very pleased by the fact that readers are given more than one happily ever after. Readers also get to spend ample page time with the hero and heroines of the previous books in both series along with the characters we’ve fell in love with in the Dragon King novellas. It really is an all-around great book.
I find it interesting that while Charon and Laura are not my favorite couple of the Midnight Warriors series, Midnight’s Captive is definitely my favorite book of the series thus far. I loved all of the side stories we were treated to. Aiden is taking on a task that will hopefully give the Warriors and Druids an advantage in fighting Jason Wallace. The Dragon Kings get an amazing amount of page time and I believe we will continue to see more of them in the remaining Dark Warrior books. I just loved the fact that Jason is experiencing a little inner turmoil within his circle of evil.
