From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels—“the Mark Twain of things that live under your bed”*—comes a new novel of Midnight, Texas, the town where some secrets will never see the light of day... At Midnight’s local pawnshop, weapons are flying off the shelves—only to be used in sudden and dramatic suicides right at the main crossroads in town.   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 bloodshed in the heart of Midnight. For if all hell breaks loose—which just might happen—it will put the secretive town on the map, where no one wants it to be...

I kinda have a love-hate thing going on with this series. I love the story and the characters but a few things I don’t like. Some of the pace of these books is a little slow for my liking. Then the ending of this book was a bit odd.

I do enjoy that the Midnight Texas books are mainly mystery/paranormal/Urban Fantasy. Sometimes I just need a cleansing or a break from romance. These did have some romance aspect to it but only a tiny bit.

With this latest installment to the series we are getting some secrets revealed and some answers from the previous books. I have yet to figure out if this is the last book or if there will be another. The ending was to odd for me to tell one way or the other. I think she did that on purpose though.

The characters are my favorite of these books. We have a vampire, witches, psychic, were tiger, fallen angels, humans. A little bit of everything for everyone. I love that Fiji is coming into her own. We learn more about Olivia and Lemuel. I absolutely love that QUINN is in this series and another character from the Sookie Stackhouse (Southern Vampire) series. That was such a great bonus to these books.

Lots of story lines and characters and a great “world” from Charlaine Harris. I enjoyed these a lot and if there will be another one I am all for it!
