Midnight Runner

We rated this book:


Already without a father, Moria finds herself an orphan in a small, medieval town when her mother dies in childbirth. She is taken in as a housemaid by the foulest family around, and spends the next twelve years of her life neglected and abused. After two failed escape attempts, Moria is finally able to free herself and begin a journey to create a new life for herself in the grand capital, Allail. But, her dream of a luxurious life comes crashing down as the result of an unwanted pregnancy, and countless other wrong turns on her way to the city.

Riddled with clichés and a predictable chain of events, this book is far from keeping you on the edge of your seat—it hardly even keeps you turning the page. The characters are both flat and overly emotional, and impossible to empathize with. Perhaps this would be a suitable level of writing for a young reader if rape and sex weren’t so blatantly included. Save your time and find something with more substance to read.
