Summary
CROSSING MIDNIGHT begins when extraordinary twins are born -- one just before midnight and the other just after. They discover the huge impact this small difference has on their destinies when one of them is inducted into a world of supernatural beings and events that intersects with our own world. Together, the twins will try to stay one step ahead of their terrifying fates while they learn how far their new world of terror intersects with their own

Review
In modern-day Nagasaki, Yasuo Hara humors his mother with a prayer and the promise of an offering to the ancient nature spirits, the Kami, for the safe delivery of his and Miya's first child. Months later comes the unexpected arrival of fraternal twins, Toshi and Kai, on either side of midnight. The young parents are surprised but take their family home. Life goes on normally for years, and then the Kami come to collect their offering. Aratsu, Master of Swords, claims Toshi, the girl, as his servant. If she refuses, he promises terrible consequences for her and her family. Crossing Midnight deftly takes inspiration from such modern Japanese horror films as The Grudge and The Ring. Carey skillfully inserts the fantastic story into the bustling landscape of big-city Japan, realistically rendered by Jim Fern's clean lines and fluid expressiveness, so that, for instance, a backdrop of mundane daylight heightens the suspense and creepiness as things go further and further askew for Toshi and Kai. Enthusiastically recommended to horror fans across the board. -- Coleman, Tina (Reviewed 09-01-2007) (Booklist, vol 104, number 1, p)
