SOON TO BE A NBC TV SERIES!
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels—“the Mark Twain of things that live under your bed”*—comes a new novel of Midnight, Texas, the town where some secrets will never see the light of day...
At Midnight’s local pawnshop, weapons are flying off the shelves—only to be used in sudden and dramatic suicides right at the main crossroads in town.
Who better to figure out why blood is being spilled than the vampire Lemuel, who, while translating mysterious texts, discovers what makes Midnight the town it is. There’s a reason why witches and werewolves, killers and psychics, have been drawn to this place.
And now they must come together to stop the bloodshed in the heart of Midnight. For if all hell breaks loose—which just might happen—it will put the secretive town on the map, where no one wants it to be...
From the Hardcover edition.
Bestseller Harris (the Sookie Stackhouse books) brings a real sense of community to the characters she introduced in Midnight Crossroad and Day Shift, deepening the reader's connection to an irresistible assortment of phone psychics and cowpunching vampires. The small, strange town of Midnight, Tex., comes complete with its own demon, whose presence is triggering suicides. The locals include weretigers, fallen angels, mercenaries with father issues, and a witch with a broken heart. Fiji Cavanaugh, proprietor of Midnight's magical shop, finds herself discarding notions of romance with the owner of the local pawnshop as well as receiving advances from the trapped demon. At the same time, she is tangled up with a woman who is being spied on by her wealthy family and their local agents. There is less tangible tension around whether the demon will be imprisoned by the Halloween love ritual than in the question of whom Fiji will choose to perform it with her.
Very fun read. Easy read. Go by quick. Doesn't get bogged down. Also start with books one and two. All three books are fun and easy.
An outstanding series
We are so familiar with “nothing ever happens out here in the middle of nowhere”. Midnight Texas is the middle of nowhere, where everything happens. With a mix of no so average people living in an out of the way place, life is quick and full of unexpected events. Outstanding job, Charlaine
An incredible read!
Enjoyed watching the season 1 of the series. Didn’t think it could get any better.... and then I read the books! Can’t wait for season 2 and the next book to come out!!!
