  About The Book

An ancient terror lurks in the shadows.

The Midnight Palace begins on a dark night when an English lieutenant fights to save newborn twins Ben and Sheere from an unthinkable menace. Despite monsoon-force rains and terrible danger lurking around every street corner, the young lieutenant manages to get them to safety, but not without losing his own life....

Years later, on the eve of Ben and Sheere's sixteenth birthday, the mysterious threat reenters their lives. This time, it may be impossible to escape. Set against 1930s Calcutta, the twins will have to battle the terror that watches them in the shadows of the night--and face the most frightening creature in the history of the City of Palaces.

  Praise

"With shades of modern horror classics....Zafón has crafted a highly original plot set within an exotic setting." Booklist

"Zafón adeptly establishes his characters (including some fun and believable teenage repartee) and makes good use of his setting....Just as importantly, Zafón delivers moments of genuine horror, as well as expert plot twists that move the story along." Publishers Weekly
