UPON THE MIDNIGHT CLEAR
This new Dream-Hunter adventure takes
a Scrooge-like tale and turns it on its ear. Kenyon packs on the emotion and the action, and readers are treated to a bonus section with peeks into the holiday celebrations of many favorite characters.
Ages ago, the Oneroi goddess Leta imprisoned Dolor, the god of pain. Now an evil human is trying to release Dolor. The man wants his brother killed, so Leta must find and protect Aidan O'Conner. Leta is supposed to be emotionless; Aidan feels only anger. His bitterness runs red-hot, and Leta will need that energy to fight. Neither of them expects the two other emotions that will either save or destroy them: love and trust. (ST. MARTIN'S, Nov., 282 pp., $6.99)
