Description

Now adapted for television in SyFy UK's Midnight, Texas series - welcome to Charlaine Harris's bestselling paranormal mystery series about a small town where only outsiders fit in . . .

Welcome to the most intriguing mystery you'll read this year.

Welcome to Midnight, Texas.

It's a quiet little town, perched at the junction between Davy Road and Witch Light Road, and it's easy to miss. With its boarded-up windows, single traffic light and sleepy air, there's nothing special about Midnight . . . which is exactly how the residents like it.

So when the news comes that a new owner plans to renovate the run-down, abandoned old hotel in town, it's not met with pleasure. Who would want to come to Midnight, with its handful of shops, the Home Cookin diner, and quiet residents - and why?

But there are bigger problems in the air. When Manfred Bernado, the newest resident in town, is swept up in a deadly investigation suddenly the hotel and its residents are the least of the towns concern. The police, lawyers and journalists are all headed to Midnight, and it's the worst possible moment . . .

Review quote

An excellent start to what looks to be an intriguing and very entertaining series * Reader Dad * If you like your soap-opera with fangs and magic, then this will delight you. * Starburst Magazine * It's clear from the start that this is an author at the peak of their ability. * SF Book * This book appears to have it all * Escapes of a Bookworm * Harris is back with a vengeance! * TW Books * Midnight Crossroad is an unforgettable kick-start to a fresh and very exciting new series * Fiction Facination * It's fun, a page turner that you'll romp through in no time * Piper at the Gates of Fantasy * A pleasurable and enjoyable read...I can't honestly wait for my my next visit to Midnight * Gav Reads * A sinster read for lovers of the vampire series to get their teeth into * Manchester Evening News * The characters are fascinating, the world she created is very intriguing and there is SO MUCH mystery ... so much, in fast, that you just HAVE to relocate from Bon Temps to Midnight, Texas. * Portrait of a Woman * This gentle mystery shows an author confident in her writing and perhaps heralds the arrival of the best stage of her work - one where she writes primarily because of the sheer love for writing. An excellent read. * Book Geek Says * If you have read anything by Charlaine Harris I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. If you haven't read anything by Charlaine Harris, then Midnight Crossroad might be the book to get you started. * Fantasy Book Review * The inclusion of a mystery that starts simply and then winds out of control so that no one can be trusted makes this is a blast to read. Everyone is your friend in Midnight, but you don't know everything about anyone. I can't wait for Midnight to come again. Overall grade: A * Sci-Fi Pulse * I was blown away by Midnight Crossroad. It's a wholly immersive, stunningly written adventure that I couldn't put down. The characters are spot on and unforgettable, the plot is exciting - the only negative thing is that I have to (very impatiently) wait for book two!!! * Carly Bennett Blogspot * Midnight Crossroad is another compelling book by Charlaine Harris. I love her storytelling style and the wonderful characters she creates * Following the Nerd * Fans might be sad to say good-bye to Sookie, but they'll be so intrigued by the denizens of Midnight they won't have time to mourn. * A Knife and a Quill * I can see many nights being lost to the wonder of Midnight. 4 /5 * Backwards Compatible * A slow burning novel which successfully juggles setting the scene for an ongoing series with a self-contained story. * Sci-Fi Bulletin * A gently paced mystery with a supernatural slant, populated by endearing, varied and well-constructed characters....Definitely recommend * Civilian Reader * Midnight Crossroad - featuring an oddball cast including a witch, a vampire and a talking cat - soon has you under its spell * THE SUN * All of Harris' trademarks are present - charm and wit, pacy storytelling and likeable characters * We Love This Book * A promising start to a new series...once you've entered, you'll never leave * Sci-Fi Now * It's fresh, innovative and damn good fun to read! * Upcoming 4 Me * Midnight Crossroad Sparkles * SFX * you won't regret it. Midnight is waiting to welcome you in. * Review Diaries * Sharp and clever, staging the perfect mix of supernatural drama with small-town routine played out by an irreverent cast- DAY SHIFT is a pleasurable read that will leave you wanting more. * What Danielle Did Next Blog * Charlaine Harris' gift to her readers is unforgettable characters. Day Shift is a joy, another exceptional novel from a gifted storyteller * lesasbookcritiques *
