Midnight Soul by Kristen Ashley (Fantasyland #5)

Midnight Soul
By 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.

Sad to see it end, but Midnight Soul is the conclusion for the Fantasyland series by Kristen Ashley.

This is Franka and Noc's story.

I have to say, Ashley did a great job redeeming an unlikable characters, AKA Franka. Most of the time that is a difficult thing to do, but Ashley definitely pulled it off.

You know I'm a big Ashley fan, so you are probably wondering why I didn't go 5 stars. I didn't think this story stood up to the rest of the Fantasyland's standards. It was really good but it didn't have that essential spark that I found in the rest of the Fantasyland books. There are a few plot paths that left us hanging, like Valentine. In the end, the closure was nice but wasn't as complete as I would of expected.

Did I enjoy it, absolutely.

Would I recommend it, absolutely.

I guess I had expectations after reading everything Ashley has ever wrote.

This is goodbye.

Of course Ashley's storytelling is always a treat.
This was one of those books that I pre-ordered in advance and choose to read for my pleasure only.
