Publisher's Summary

Against his will, Noctorno Hawthorne, an undercover vice cop, finds himself embroiled in magic, mayhem, and parallel universes. Too late, he meets an amazing woman - only to find she's destined for his identical twin in another world. And things aren't going real great there.

Noc is recruited to help save that world. What he doesn't know is his destined love resides there.

Franka Drakkar wears a mask. A mask she never takes off, to protect herself in a world of malice, intrigue, and danger. When Franka meets Noc and he discovers her secrets, convinced she carries a midnight soul, having shielded herself from forming bonds with anyone, she struggles with accepting his tenderness and care. When Noc meets Franka, over wine and whiskey her mask slips, and Noc knows it's her - only her - and he has to find a way to get her to come home with him.

And then make her want to stay.

Needs More Soul

OK--this is definitely NOT one of my favorite KA books; not even close. The sole reason it rated 3 stars was the creativity of this whole fantasyland series. While this book had its moments, the body of the work was pretty lackluster when compared to the first 4 books in the series. I hesitate to write further as spoilers would be inevitable in order to understand my response. I found 'Frannie' to be a non-compelling heroine for the most part and had not much more investment in Noc. The primary character in this book that resonated with me was Josette (remember I listened, so spelling may be an issue). Josette was a new character specific to this book; the other compelling character is Valentine, who has been a continuing character.

I think I understand KA's intent behind this story and there are quite a few strong moments/conversations. Yet, this book , to me, just does not have the force behind it that the first four have had.

The redeeming performance by Tillie Hooper is another reason for the 3 stars. She's quite magnificent as ALL voices. I am hopeful this is NOT the final book in the series.

Great Overall Story, but

All the stories in this series are very good, long enough to get your credits worth. Fun female characters all with their own backstory.
Here's the "but"...
All the lead females in this series talk like high school girls, let me add high school girls that were only there to socialize and slept through English class. Kristen Ashley is a well published author so it suprises me that she did this with 4 female leading characters. If you can get past that you will enjoy all the books in this series.

still not as good as book 2

It was really entertaining hearing about the characters exploring this world but other than that it was lacking. I've heard the 5 books in the series and the only one i wanted to hear again was book 2, that had a really well taught out story.

Midnight Soul is Very Good Ending to the Series

Of the series Golden Dynasty is my favorite; but Midnight Soul was delightful and I do recommend it. I enjoyed the Frannie and Noc romance and the way we got insight into the lives of all the other characters.

I liked the way both of them had to let go of the past and believe for a bright feature and except love...

It was nice to see how the other Lahn and Circe met and started their romance. I would have loved it if they had their own book. (The chemistry between the two was really mind blowing) in the few scenes they were in.

I would say for those who like romance and adventure Midnight Soul is a delight and worth the credit.

Storyline ruined because of all the profanity… Unnecessary and ridiculous use of profanity

I have really liked Kristen Ashley‘s books in the past but the last two books that I have purchased (this one and Kaleidoscope) includes so much profanity that it ruined the storyline for me. I don’t remember Ashley’s books before 2016 being so offensive. The storyline was great but the frequent use of the F bomb (As well as other curse words) was so excessive and unnecessary in my opinion it ruined the whole book. One of the main characters Noc used profanity in 99.9% of every sentence he spoke. It was awful. Ms. Asley please consider not using so much profanity or at least warn the purchaser about how excessive the profanity is . When listening to the sample the other characters were featured so I had no idea that the male character Noc would be the primary male character throughout the book. I could get through the book and would return it if I hadn’t just returned Kaleidoscope which is just as bad, ugh. If you don’t like profanity definitely don’t buy this book or Kaleidoscope. The profanity in her other books may be just as excessive but I will not buy another to find out. Disappointed.

Surprisingly excellent!

I was hesitant about this one of the series since the others were so fantastic and I wasn't such a fan of Noctorno falling for Franca but it was worth it...

You'll need to put some time in this, but it's worth it.

This book takes you from a misunderstood women whom everyone hates. But the end you love her and her bond with her lover, sister witches (she didn't even know she was), the people she pushed away only to protect them. I won't give out spoilers, at times it drags a bit, but hold on for the end.

Perfect series perfect length

I loved this series and didn’t want it to end. I love the interweaving story lines and every character was well rounded. Tillie Hooper is top notch as the narrator for this series and she keeps every character’s voice straight. Highly recommend!!

Midnight Soul by Kristen Ashley

I loved this book which was the last book in a series of five books. I have listened to all five and enjoyed each one with this one bringing into and completing the characters from the previous books! I loved that. Christen Ashley brings to life such credible characters that are so true to life and the narrator Tillie Hooper excels in giving them such a variety of voices it seemed as if they all were so very real to me. If you like reading a story that consists of romance, magic, emotion and in some cases sorrow you will certainly love this book. I know some people like to read or listen to a much shorter book but I like the longer length which gives you a much fuller explanation of the characters and their lives! Plus the idea of having a twin in an alternate world makes my imagination soar !! Again I loved it.

great storyline, too much sex

I've loved this series and i think this was a great book but there was way too much sex in it. At times I stopped listening to it for a period, others I skipped part of the book. It was extremely repetitive and made the book difficult to get through and enjoy.

Unhappy ending.

This series was fantastic. Books 1 -4 were entertaining, creative and well read.
Somehow Book 5 went off on a tangent that was poorly written, messy, boring and so very disappointing. Readers could easily stop at book 4 and miss almost nothing but a poor repeat of the previous 4 stories.
