Tori de Clare, author of the popular 'The Midnight Saga' books
Tori de Clare, born 1970, grew up in Greater Manchester. Having taught piano for 25 years in between being a full-time stay-at-home mum of four, she began writing six years ago. Her debut novel, Either Side of Midnight – the first book of a series – was intended for young adults, but has been widely accepted by an adult readership. She now lives in East Yorkshire, England, and continues to teach music and write books and finds time for little else beyond family. Daughter of two pianists, it was hardly a surprise that music became Tori’s career. Cursed fate!
Tori de Clare: ‘My parents were good at two things, which they very kindly passed on: music and writing. I pursued both. My dad played the piano by ear and didn’t need to read music; my mum was classically trained. Greedily, I quite fancied both talents, but followed my mum down the classical route. All this sounds very cultured, but the truth is I’m exceptionally down-to-earth and love nothing better than a good laugh. Un-funnily, my dad died when I was 18. In his spare time, he never had a book out of his hands and aspired to having a book published. Having never had the chance to realise his ambition, this book is dedicated to him and to my mum who taught me to play the piano.’
The final book in The Midnight Saga ‘Shadows to Ashes’ was released in June 2017.
Shadows to Ashes
(The Midnight Saga Book 3)
What if the beginning could also mean the end?
When a peaceful island in the Indian Ocean isn’t far enough away to escape danger, where do you go? With your wedding in ruins and your fiancé arrested, what do you do? It was supposed to be a new beginning, but it ended before it began. Naomi Hamilton knows why. Knows who’s responsible. Knows what he wants. The king, guarded by his faithful defence. One man who’ll stop at nothing. One girl who’s tired of hiding. Because maybe running isn’t the answer. So maybe there’s only one way to put an end to the game. To face it. Play it. Head to head.
It’s rare in a series when each book is better than the last.
Words can't express how much I loved these books. Such beautiful writing, character development & emotion.
Either Side of Midnight is perfect for readers who like books that will screw with your mind. Fans of the Consequences series by Aleatha Romig in particular will love this book. A must read!
Either Side of Midnight is a must-read book for all mystery and/or suspense lovers. I rate this book as a ten-star and expect to see it as number one on the best selling list for many, many weeks.
