The girl at midnight
Grey, Melissa2015
The New York Public Library: haven of countless stories and the makeshift sanctuary of Echo, a runaway pickpocket. Amid the stacks and shelves, she's found by the Ala, an ancient creature with feathers for hair and magic running through her veins. The Ala gives Echo a home amongst her people, who exist far from human eyes beneath the streets of the city. Straddling two world, Echo survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market and grows up to become daring, brash and fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war threatens the only true family she's ever known, Echo decides she must act. Legend has it that only an elusive mythical being - the Firebird - has the power to end the conflict. Finding it will be no easy task, but if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it's how to hunt down what she wants...and how to take it.
