Penguin's First-to-Read Review

The Midnight Queen
ISBN: 978-0425272459
September 2, 2014
Amazon Link
 *I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

The August 2014 batch of First-to-Read books from Penguin was the best selection so far. I won my first book from the raffle but this is my second win overall. I was really happy to win a copy of this but I could not finish it and it had nothing to do with the content of the book. I DNF at page 78.

My biggest complaint with this ARC was that the writing was extremely small and very hard to see. I needed the print to be bigger and I hope it is when it is released September 2nd. The writing is Medieval English which made it hard to grasp and understand what was going on. When this book is released I will give this another try. I would love to listen to this as an audiobook. 

From what I read, The main character Gray has been accepted into Merlin College due to his knowledge of magick. After a prank, he lands himself working his professor's garden for the summer. There he meets a girl named Sophie.  I didnt get very far so Im not exactly sure what happens next. I am definitely interested in finishing the book but I'm going to wait until there's an audiobook version.
