Meandering and self indulgent. Not so much a story as a set of characters wandering around Texas doing random things. ( )

This is a mix of who-dunnit and urban (well, rural) fantasy. Some interesting characters, and in some ways to me more appealing than the True Blood series. I will consider reading a second one of these. ( )

Boring af.
So f'n monotone.
Tapping out at 15%ish.
I saw the TV show and it was quite enjoyable so I thought I'd check out the source story. There is just nothing compelling, like no tension. I think my issue is the show seems to have followed the book pretty well. Except maybe Manfred. Show Manfred isn't like book Manfred at least not yet.

Haven't gotten a replacement audiobook yet so still listening.

Finally made it to the library and got a replacement but I did not pre-research the new choice so *fingers crossed* that it will be good or at least better. So, I officially quit at 85%. Take note, that means I didn't stick around for the resolutions *yawn*. There is a witch, a psychic, a talking cat (familiar), an energy vampire, and people of non-revealed backgrounds (yet).... The characters have each other's back even killing to protect each other but it's still too sweet. You wouldn't think so based on what I described but it's true. I like my stories darker so I'm moving on. Maybe Twilight fans would like it. Supernatural elements but not very dark.

Midnight is a small town. Just a few buildings and homes at the intersection of Witch Light Road and Davy Road in rural Texas. There's a diner, 24-hour pawnshop, convenience store & gas station, plus a church. The residents of Midnight, Texas are....unusual. Special. Different. Newcomer Manfred Bernardo is about to discover just how different they are. Moving to this podunk Texas backwater nothing of a town is going to change his life. Forever.

I enjoyed Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series (the books more so than the television version) so I was happy when I came across this supernatural series. Midnight Crossroad is book 1 in the Midnight, Texas series. There are 3 books in the series so far.

The characters are so interesting. Every resident of Midnight is hiding secrets, but they have a strong bond with each other. In this new series, Harris mentions some characters from some of her other books like Harper Connelly and Lily Bard. Even a main character, Manfred, was actually a minor character from the Harper Connelly series. I'm sure if I went back and re-read the Sookie books that I would discover even more references. I enjoyed seeing names that I recognize!

Midnight, Texas is currently being made into a television show by NBC. I couldn't find any dates for the show, but an article did hint that it might be on the Fall 2017 lineup. I will definitely be watching! I do hope it follows the books more closely than the TrueBlood series did. The HBO version of the Sookie Stackhouse stories veered so far away from the books that I stopped watching before the final season. My hopes are high that the TV version of Midnight, Texas will be better. *fingers crossed*

For those who enjoy supernatural tales and mysteries, I definitely recommend the Midnight, Texas series. Book 1, Midnight Crossing, gives an introduction to the residents of Midnight and there's a murder mystery thrown in for a bit of suspense as well. The pacing of the story was great, and the characters are magical and believable at the same time. I'm not sure which character is my favorite....I'm just going to say I like them all. Or, I might choose the cat. Yes, the cat was awesome!

For those who have been missing Sookie Stackhouse, this series is a pretty good replacement. Give it a try! ( )

I'm a big fan of Charlaine Harris' work and have read several of her series, so I was very excited to hear she had started a new one. I admit that I didn't like this book in the beginning, but I'm glad I stuck with it. I ended up enjoying the book and I found it interesting how she took several secondary characters from her earlier series and brought them together in this story. ( )

You might pass through the town of Midnight with noticing it, if there weren't a stoplight at the intersection of Witch Light Road and the Davy highway.
