As is typical with this series, they got together a little too fast for my taste, but they did have decent chemistry, fueled by their emotional responses to one another. Upon the Midnight Clear shared a couple of common characters with other books of the series. M'Ordant and Wink are also briefly mentioned. Despite these connections, Upon the Midnight Clear has little or no bearing on the overall series story arc. Considering that part of the story takes place in the real world with one human antagonist, everything just happened too easily to be entirely credible. The characters make choices with little depth of thought, including Aidan who comes to trust Leta too quickly for someone who has basically checked out on life due to extreme betrayals in his past.
Still, for a short novel it was a decent read, and one I'm sure Dark-Hunter fans will probably appreciate.
Upon the Midnight Clear
Holiday Gatherings - Holiday Gatherings is a bonus page novella that is found at the end of Upon the Midnight Clear , and from what I can tell, this is the only place it's available. It is a series of short vignettes showing nearly all the main Dark-Hunter characters, both past and future, celebrating Christmas. My favorites were the ones centering on Aimee and Fang, Nick, and Acheron. The whole novella was heartwarming, but the parts about these four characters were particularly tender and emotional.
Holiday Gatherings was a fun way to catch up with some of my old favorite characters and get a few teasers for upcoming ones, and was enjoyable enough to make me bump up the overall book rating by a half star.

When his brother makes a deal with a god, to take him Now Aidan wants nothing of the world - or Upon The Midnight Clear: Start off by reading the "Dark-Hunter" series and then make your way to this new Dream-Hunter spin-off. One person found this helpful. I found the writing subpar, yet I gave it 4 stars because I thought the story was much more original even if it carried away a bit from the Dark Hunter series , and was enchanted by the characters. At times I wanted to slap some sense into Aidan, because I thought he was too stubborn and cynical, but Leta made me happy that a female character was getting the powers and supernatural skills otherwise kept for the men in the series.
It was a nice change of rhythm, which made me like the story. So, I know it's a deviation from the Dark Hunter series, and if you don't like the Dream Hunters, then this may not be for you.

- Upon the Midnight Clear by Sherrilyn Kenyon;
I've been a very big fan of the Dark Hunter series and had believed the spin off into Dream Hunters would open a new door of possibilities. Unfortunately, that has not happened with this book. I use he term 'book' loosely here. It's more of a short story that has been stretched and fluffed to make it look like a full-length novel by using large typeface and spacing.
The story itself is lacking just about everything that has made Kenyon's "Hunters" automatic purchases for me. There is little to no character development, no building of the relationship between the two leads, very little action and the human's easy acceptance of the paranormal aspects of the story goes beyond the "suspension of disbelief" and wanders into "hard to swallow. I'll wait for the local library to get her stuff in so I can read it for free and not waste my money on more worthless titles like this one.
A kick in the teeth tomorrow is how Aiden O'Conner feels about people. Enter Dream-god Leta to save him from the god of Pain. This is a somewhat quirky story that is still entertaining. Just remember when reading that when crazy people walk through the forest they take the psycho path.
It was good to see more of Deimos Demon and Phobos Fear. It's a quick read worth having just for the Holiday Gatherings vignettes at the back of the book. See all reviews.
