From Eight years after an alien invasion has taken all of the adults and brought the human race to the brink of destruction, Holt Hawkins is a survivor and bounty hunter. Wandering a world full of lost children, petty rivalries, roving gangs, and the ever-present alien patrols, he prides himself on his calculated loner existence. He crosses paths with Mira, a skilled Freebooter (one who works with artifacts of the Strange Lands to create what seems like magic machines), and Zoey, a mysterious little girl who seems to know an awful lot about the mechanical invaders. Together they navigate wide expanses of a postapocalyptic United States, dodging aliens, gangs, and their own haunted pasts. Comic-book author Barton’s first prose novel offers a bold narrative style, strong characters, and fast-paced action that will appeal to genre fans. Readers may feel disoriented at being dropped into a larger story already in progress, but the cinematic experience is enjoyable enough to convince them to just hold on during the wild ride. Grades 9-12. --Tina Coleman --This text refers to the edition.

Review ''I have succumbed to Midnight City! Just like Holt, who fights to liberate a conquered Earth, I now see that great things can happen. After all, J. Barton Mitchell wrote this novel. I have hope of another. As soon as possible.'' --Nancy Holder, New York Times bestselling author

''Mitchell's prose debut, the first in a dystopian sci-fantasy series, is an imaginative mix of danger and humor . . . the action will keep readers turning the pages.'' --Kirkus Reviews

''Midnight City hooked me right from the moment Holt first tries to capture Mira and takes her prisoner only to realize he's dealing with a girl who's got some serious survival skills. The two characters are complete equals, more than any other fictional costar team I've read and yet they're enemies. I knew exactly what would happen with Mira and Holt's instant chemistry and yet, I had to read on just to watch this amazing, action packed journey, both emotional and physical, unfold.'' --Julie Cross, international bestselling author of Tempest

''When the adults mysteriously disappear, who will save the day after earth is conquered by aliens? In J. Barton Mitchell's riveting postapocalyptic tale, the kids are the last line of defense. Centered around engaging (and conflicted) characters, Midnight City hurtles you into a story teeming with frightening monsters, bizarre techno-magic, and edge-of-your-seat action.'' --Jana Oliver, award-winning author of The Demon Trapper's Daughter --This text refers to the edition.
