This book was whimsical, magical, mysterious and mystifying. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the characters and their intricacies. The bulk of the story revolves around the actions of the three title characters. Wink is a quiet and ethereal girl with much mystery about her. Poppy, at first glance, is your typical high school ‘it’ girl. She’s bossy, mean and she knows it. Midnight is the unassuming ‘boy next door’. But he means more than he knows to Wink and Poppy.
This story is best described as a mystery. A mystery with elements of fairy tales, thrilling danger, heroes, villains and battles. I was enraptured the whole way. Just when I thought I knew what each character’s next move was, they threw in a curve ball.
Each main character has their flaws and weaknesses and even when you think you know who you are supposed to love and hate, they surprise you with their many layers of personality and backstory. No character, no matter how small the part, is left with just one dimension. Each character’s life and personality are explored by the author and their impact on the main characters are evident.
I don’t know how else to summarize this story without spoiling it. But it’s a lovely story that will keep you engaged the whole time. If you enjoy a little mystery and intrigue, this story will not disappoint.
