Midnight's Twins had me gripped from the very first line. It's wildly imaginative, and I love that it's focused on the sibling bond (Fern and Ollie completely captured my heart!) and set in an alternative, dreamscaped London. The world building is excellent - the streets and inhabitants of Annwn really came to life in Race's prose. A brilliant combination of urban fantasy and Arthurian legend, Midnight's Twins will appeal to fans of Gaiman's Neverwhere or Schwab's A Darker Shade Of Magic. -- Katharine Corr
Lyrical writing, powerful politics, & epic world-building, Race's Midnight's Twins is a unique and vivid story of hope & belonging, I couldn't put it down -- Michelle Kenney
A gripping YA fantasy that plunges the reader into a nightmarish mirror world where dreams can literally kill you. I could not put it down. -- Elizabeth Corr
