Product description

Product Description

Eighteen-year-old Laken Sumner has just escaped from a stranger and a pack of wolves in the dark rain on a lonely mountain road. Normally, with her ability to communicate with wild animals, who can understand her thoughts, she wouldn’t worry about encountering the predators. But these wolves didn’t respond to her. She tries to shrug it off, afraid to reveal her fears to Noah, her boyfriend and the deputy sheriff.

But that’s not all she’s hiding. Drawn to Xander Payne, like a moth to a flame, she warns herself to stay away from him. She’s convinced he knows something, and she doesn’t trust him. Besides, Noah is the one she really wants…if only she could be sure of that.

When disaster strikes and Laken is forced to confess her secret to Noah, her worst fears are realized as he drifts away from her. Xander is more than willing to step into Noah’s shoes with Laken, but she refuses to give in to her feelings for him. Because Noah will be back, won’t he?

I loved this sequel just as much as Shadows at Sunset. Brilliant storytelling, beautifully written with loveable characters. Can't wait for Part three. Tonya Royston. Definitely one to watch for.

5.0 out of 5 stars ENTICING!! 11 June 2017
By HonestReviewer - Published on

I started reading Royston's work, "Shadows at Sunset", because she's a colleague and I've been dying to read her book. As my review of that story shows, the novel is by far a great read; and should definitely be given the chance to be read by you!

The sequel, "Silence at Midnight", is just as enticing as the previous installment. With the opportunity to explore who Xander is a bit more and his hold on Laken, and the magnetic force that seems to keep them together, I found myself really enjoying the story (and wishing Laken would follow her heart, not her head). And just like the first book, the cover is absolutely gorgeous.

A few things felt forced, though; (SPOILER ALERT!) the curse behind Laken's necklace and how she learned it in front of Xander, who is kinda obviously her soul mate, was too coincidental. Also in the synopsis, it says "when disaster strikes and Laken is forced to confess her secrets to Noah"; disaster didn't strike. She just saved a moose. I expected Noah to be calling for her help because he was running from a bear or something. She was not forced to confess her secret, she could have just shared with him that her bio mom was good with animals too and show him the proof. I felt a little cheated with that. Also the part of Noah drifting away from her was very rushed; it didn't seem concrete at all, just stated and then swept past.

BACK TO THE REVIEW (NO SPOILERS): One of the main reasons why I like Royston's work is because her writing is starkly different from mainstream authors, and it is so refreshing. I think her work is considered indie because of that, but regardless, her stories are a breath of fresh air as is her writing style.

SPOILER ALERT! Here are some special notes I had on certain places throughout the book.

Page 127, chapter 8: finally, Laken and Noah heat it up! I wish it happened sooner, but I also like that they're so renaissance-like when dating. Noah is courting Laken, which doesn't happen anymore in the real world when dating; sigh. *blushes* I was worried for her when she pushed Noah away and told him to stop kissing her, but proud of her too because she was well aware of her boundaries. I do wish the heat was turned up more, though; ie enough where they're both shirtless. Hopefully I'll get that when Xander and Laken (if, I mean;) start dating.

Page 176, chapter 11: when Laken has her sex dream about Xander, it should have been italicized. As a fellow author that is something I in particular notice, I'm not sure if it is something an average reader would; but the reason is because it gets too confusing and hard to figure out what's happening (or focus) in the moment.

BACK TO REVIEW (no spoilers): other than that, all I can say is it's a great book and definitely worthy of its 5 stars. (I grade harshly too, so no bias here.) Any editing mistakes are the fault of the editor, not the author. I am curious to learn more and eager to buy the third book!

PS: I gave a friend "Shadows at Sunset" and am giving this one to a stranger. Even though it's a sequel, I discovered my favorite author by unknowingly reading a 7th book in a series (Kelley Armstrong), so you never know how sharing books is beneficial to both the author and the reader.

Howl on, Dakota! ;-)

Silence at Midnight is the sequel to Shadows at Sunset and the story begins where it left off. We delve a bit deeper into the enigma surrounding Laken and her gift of talking to animals. Then, Laken has a discovery that rocks her world, (I never leave spoilers) and the contact with a mysterious man has her again apprehensive and scared. Silence at Midnight is an easy read with some twists.

The author, Tonya Royston is a prolific writer, and has again left the reader wanting more. Which means I need to read the final book, Surrender at Sunrise to get all the answers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plot Twists Surprised Me 10 March 2016
By RiaJaize - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this second installment of Royston's Shadows series. Laken continues to be a likable heroine to spend a book with, and this one throws her for a few loops. The plot twists were fun because they weren't telegraphed ahead of time, but they made sense and answered some questions... not to mention raising the stakes for Laken.

I'm not a romance fan, so the continuation of the love triangle didn't fascinate me; still, I'm curious as to what secrets my chosen hero is hiding. The rest of the story was fun, and I'm looking forward to finishing it all up in Book Three.

(I think Royston has chosen a different hero to win the girl in the end. But I'm holding on to mine for now. :) )

The plot thickens as the past floods with the future. Where is this going and how will it end? Looking forward to the answers in the next book.

Loved it! I'm so glad I picked up Silence at Midnight. I really enjoyed learning more about Laken, Noah, and Xander as their characters continued to develop throughout the story. I began to really care about what happened to the characters. Kudos to Ms. Royston - she had me hooked!
