Publisher's Summary

Adam Winters has enough responsibility as the new head of the local Ghost Hunter Guild without being saddled with the family curse. He’s convinced his recent nightmares and hallucinations will lead to him becoming a psychic rogue — unless he can find a stolen relic and a woman who can read dreamlight.

Marlowe Jones rides into his life on a motorcycle and with a dust bunny at her side. Though a descendant of the rival Arcane family, she’s just what Adam needs: a psychic private investigator and dreamlight reader extraordinaire.

Together, amid the glowing catacombs and steamy underground jungles of Harmony, Adam and Marlowe must break the curse, save the entire underworld — and fight a passion that could destroy them both.

    "Jayne 5, Tanya 4, Tanya's male voice 1"

    I really liked the book, but... I cringed every time I realized the male was speaking. The voice Eby used for the male was still very feminine. Maybe I'm not being fair, because I just got through listening to Natalie Ross in After the Night, now that was a very sexy male voice delivered by a female. The book was a good wrap up of this trilogy. Was worth the credit.

    "Vixen or Heroine?"

    In all, it was a good story and a good end to the Burning Lamp trilogy. I was turned off at first by the new narrator - it's not the same as most of the Jayne Castle books. I got used to the narrator, but I still got mixed signals. Most of the heroines in Jayne Castle/Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick novels are strong women. The narrator in this story turned every female in the story into a sex kitten. Annoying at first, but after I got in to the story it didn't bother me as much. Conclusion - good story, but the sex oozing from the heroine's voice was a distraction. Not in a good way, either.

    "Liked the main characters"

    I liked this book better than the recent Harmony novels, because both the female and male leads were likable and straight forward.

    I have been reading this series on and off and out of order and felt a keen need to read through the books in order. It's not like you couldn't enjoy the book without the knowledge, but it makes better sense and adds more substance to the story.

    "Not sure how i feel about this book"

    I generally love Harmony books in this case however i ended up very confused as to who was speaking man, woman or rock all seemed to sound the same so conversations were very hard to understand.
    Also all the characters seem to be read in monotone as if the narrator had not read the book previously.

    "ANOTHER GREAT ARCANE BOOK"

    I liked this book, but then I like all the sci fi books, and the arcane books have been quite entertaining.

    No


    What was most disappointing about Jayne Castle’s story?

    I thought it was going to be a sweet love story but it was futuristic and scifi. I didn't know when I bought it.

    "A good story, Fun characters Great narrator"
    Would you listen to Midnight Crystal again? Why?

    Yes, the main characters were fun and the story was exciting and interesting. Also Liked Gibson the dust bunny.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The interaction between the main characters while trying to stay alive and solve the mystery of the lamp.


    Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby – was your favorite?

    Marlo, was a fun character that Tanya brought to life well.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not my usual type of book but it had was fun to listen to and had enough fantasy to make it interesting. My main series are Cat and Bones by Frost, The hallows series by Harrison and the Stackhouse series by Harris. This was a fun deviation from my normal books.

    "Not the best Narrarator"
    Would you try another book from Jayne Castle and/or Tanya Eby?

    I liked the book, the story and plot, even the character building... however the delivery from the narrator was not good at all. I have listed to a TON of books and this narrator was very flat. There was hardly any differentiation between male and female and the emotional delivery was horrible. It was super stoney and I felt like I was listening to a robot. She has a good voice, it was just lacking emotion and depth in reading a story like this one, which was full of action and romance.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jayne Castle? Why or why not?

    I would read more by Jayne Castle, just not narrated by this same woman.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Much

    "Midnight Crystal"

    Midnight Crystal was the first book of Dreamlight Trilogy that I listened to and I feel that I might have missed some of the back history of the Arcane Society which may have given the story line more depth for me.

    I enjoyed the characters and romance between Adam and Marlowe, and I even found myself smiling as I imagined the dustbunnies. I was a little frustrated at trying to justify the believability of the of the worlds created in this book I found myself questioning if our race had progressed enough to build and live on an alien planet why then did the gadgets or tech seem as mundane as what we have today? While I enjoyed biplay between the two main characters I found myself a little nonplussed about the world I was introduced to through this book. Having said that I am still curious enough to go back and read the first of the trilogy to see if my opinion sways from the firmly average to something more distinctive.
