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.

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.

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.

confused

Would you listen to another book narrated by Tanya Eby?

Tanya is ok, she's not my favorite, but definitely not on the bottom. So yes, I will listen to more or her.

Any additional comments?

I think like allot of people, I get really confused on the timeline of Jayne Castle/Amanda Quick/ Jayne anne Krentz. I try to read books in order, but how do you have a series within a series within a series and know where to start? I've listened to like 5 or 6 different ones and I like them, but I still don't know if they were a beginning, middle, or ending.

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.

I Recommend Midnight Crystal

A well written story full of adventure, intriguing characters and interesting science fiction elements. I had fun on the journey & Tanya Eby brought life to the words. Thanks to all that make audiobooks possible.

Overall good performance

Rating should be 4.5 instead of 4. The reader's lisp was a little distracting at times.

interesting but...

i listened to this again after a long hiatus. there were continuity issues that made me wonder if this was the same author. the change in narrators was disturbing although this woman was good. i wondered why all these things did not bother me the first time. i may never know.

Midnight Crystal

I love anything that Jayne Krentz writes. I have been reading her books since the 80's. This was great also. Got to tell you that I love dust bunnies and they are amazing little creatures. These futuristic stories are so interesting.

Jayne castle is one of my absolute fav authors,

Marlo and Adam make an exciting couple, with Gibson the dust bunny giving plenty of light moments. I love Jayne's harmony stories, can never wait for the next one to come out.

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.

Excellent Narration

Jayne Ann Krentz is one of my favourite authors. I love all her stories. The narrative by Tanya Eby was excellent. Hopefully she will narrate many more of JAK’s books.
