Two suicides within a week at the same crossroads just
can't be a coincidence. Midnight has always been a
unique town, but now the residents are facing events that
baffle even their esoteric and paranormal sensibilities.
People are being drawn to the crossroads and committing-
or attempting to commit- suicide. Local resident and
vampire, Lemuel, believes an ancient text holds the key,
but will that knowledge be enough to stop the rash of
Okay, admit it... who doesn't want to visit such an odd
town as Midnight, where vampires, psychics, witches,
angels, and tiger shifters all live peaceably side by
side? Midnight is just full of unusual characters and I
love that Charlaine Harris gives us a bit more history of
the town in NIGHT SHIFT. Fiji Cavanaugh, the local witch,
is the center character in a lot of the events in NIGHT
SHIFT. She's been quite complacent in earlier books but
she really steps into her own in this. I have to
admit that one scene left me with a bit of a squicky
feeling but that didn't diminish my love for the
Midnight, Texas series or the characters.
NIGHT SHIFT is the third book in Charlaine Harris'
Texas series. Fans of
Charlaine Harris will notice several main characters as
some, such as Bobo Winthrop and Manfred Bernardo, have
appeared in other books by Charlaine Harris. And oh, this
is only part of the fun that NIGHT SHIFT and the
Midnight, Texas series has in store for readers!
NIGHT SHIFT and the Midnight, Texas series have
eased my withdrawal symptoms after Charlaine Harris'
Stackhouse series finally came to a
conclusion. I love the various residents of Midnight and
like that we can shift perspectives a bit, gaining
insight into all of the fascinating residents of this odd
little Texas town. Charlaine Harris proves once again
that she is a master at making the eccentric simply ooze
with Southern charm. I can't wait to see what Charlaine
Harris has in store for us next!

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
