Cara and Aelyx only have one day to spend together before he returns to earth and she travels to Aelyx's home planet, L'eihr. Homesick and worried about the upcoming year apart, Cara is desperate to make these final hours count.

Worst of all, Cara is missing Christmas, stuck on board an alien spaceship. When Aelyx learns that Cara is forgoing her favorite holiday, he tries to recreate Christmas in space by researching traditional earth customs…but a few things get lost in translation. Includes bonus chapters from ALIENATED and a sneak peek at the sequel, INVADED.

My Thoughts:  Until Midnight is a short story and it’s obviously a quick read.  It connects Alienated and Invaded, which will be released in February.  The love story between an alien and a human continues and I’ll admit it, my curiosity is piqued.

Cara and Aelyx are pretty adorable.  It’s enjoyable to be able to read about how much people love each other.  I’m also a fan of the progress of their relationship.  Until Midnight is basically a small moment in their lives and shows how their relationship is progressing.  It did increase my curiosity about what will happen in Invaded.  I’m dying to know if they’ll be separated throughout or if something will happen to bring them together towards the beginning (the story is more interesting when they’re together).

Until Midnight was really sweet and I think it was a nice addition to the series.  Based on what happened, it’s not a must-read to stay caught up, but if you liked Alienated and are planning to read Invaded it’s worth reading.  I would recommend Until Midnight, if you’ve already read Alienated.

3 out of 5 Bookmarks = It was a very interesting read and I liked it.
