Item Details

"FIRST IN A NEW TRILOGY From Charlaine Harris, the bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a darker locale-populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that's how the locals prefer it. Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It's a pretty standard dried-up western town. There's a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There's a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there's new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he's found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own). Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth... "--

first of a new series.
Introduced to the citizens of Midnight, Texas, and they all have secrets. We don't learn all the secrets, yet, but I'm sure they will be revealed as the books progress.
Slow at times, but readable always. But, I think I like the Lily Bard series better (so far), that is mentioned here, by Bobo, the main character? in this novel

A disappointing start to a new series. Was hoping that a new cast and a new story would bring some freshness in her writing. Nothing particularly interesting or eye-catching that stood out in the book. The writing style reminded me one of the books by Crusie and Mayer but at least they had some humor in theirs which made them a little more fun to read.

Midnight is almost a ghost town and some of its residents are other-worldly. I thought the characters were distinct from each other, and I enjoyed getting to know them. It's a bit of the old wild west mixed with extremely private individuals, as seen by newcomer Manfred. I will be reading the next in this trilogy.

My wife tried to read this, stopped after 25 pages. I, on the other hand, loved it! It appears to take place in the 'true blood' universe...and I've always enjoyed those stories. Yes, it started a little slow, but well worth the time.

As someone who really enjoyed the "True Blood" series, this first book in Ms. Harris' new series did not disappoint. I will confess that I had a little trouble getting into it, but after about the first quarter of the book, I was hooked. The characters are wonderful, some with "special" talents, and the story is fun. It is different enough from the "True Blood" people and situations that I am looking forward to seeing where this saga goes in the next book!

Boring read, not what you'd expect from the author of the Sookie Stackhouse series. The characters were hard to become vested in so you don't really care what happens to them next, or what stories they might have to tell. Disappointing read, I might read the rest of the series if I had no other books available at the time. I agree that Aurora Teegarden Mysteries are much more entertaining.

A wonderful new book.
Each of her series has a different tone and this one is no exception.
The story neatly introduces the characters and tells a story, but leaves a lot of questions and things to be discovered in future books.
It will test my patience to wait for the next books(s).

Yawn.
Love many of Charlaine Harris' books but clearly this is simply setting up another series. The characters are uninteresting, the plot thin.

Try reading her Aurora Teagarden series which is very funny and much more interesting.

Fun new series... a little of the down home of Sookie, small town of Roe, and mystery (and slight mention) of Lily. Ties all the series together and yet strikes out on its own.

A must read for Summer 2014

Was pleasantly surprised to find some characters from other book series Charlaine Harris has done in the past. Interested to see how this series develops
