Summary: 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…
|Confession: I watched the show before I read the book.
Yes I know bad Jen but I have to be honest after the whole True Blood train wreck we had to endure I was wary to read another series by Harris but man I am glad I read this book.
I enjoyed this way more than the first book in the Southern Vampire Series. Yes I know there are some that are going to call me crazy but I did.
Honestly I think it is because there is more to focus on than just two characters well three when you throw in a love triangle.
THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN in this book and that makes it fantastic.
I loved each and every character. Yes even the ones that don’t exactly have the best morals. I love how they all work together in this one crazy fictional Texas town… but still have the Texas charm.
I love how the relationships ALL feel authentic and not forced. Honestly I just love this book and thing that you should read it AND watch the show.
