Summary
Upon moving to Bixby, Oklahoma, fifteen-year-old Jessica Day learns that she is one of a group of people who have special abilities that help them fight ancient creatures living in an hour hidden at midnight; creatures that seem determined to destroy Jess. Strange things happen at midnight in the town of Bixby, Oklahoma. Time freezes. Nobody moves. For one secret hour each night, the town belongs to the dark creatures that haunt the shadows. Only a few know about the secret hour -- only they are free to move about the midnight time. These people call themselves Midnighters. Each one has a different power that is strongest at midnight: Seer, Mindcaster, Acrobat, Polymath. For years the Midnighters and the dark creatures have shared the secret hour, avoiding one another. All that changes when the new girl Jess appears. She is not an outsider like the other Midnighters. She acts perfectly normal in every way, but it soon becomes clear that the dark creatures sense a hidden power in Jessica and they're determined to stop her beforeshe can use it. A story of courage, shadowy perils, and unexpected destiny, The secret hour is the first of a trilogy by Scott Westerfeld
