Fans were definitely split over the ending of Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse novels, on which HBO’s “True Blood” is based, but it’s time to move on, and that’s exactly what the author is doing in Midnight Crossroad, the first book in a planned trilogy that arrives May 6, 2014.
Below you’ll find the synopsis of Midnight Crossroad (A Novel of Midnight, Texas) and the cover art courtesy of EW, which spoke with Harris, who provided the following teaser about her upcoming novel:
“The Midnight books are about a group of people, all of them with secrets, drawn to a remote and rural crossroad in Texas. Some of them are people I’ve wanted to revisit from other, older series, and some of them are people my readers have never met before. There are supernatural elements in the Midnight books, but they’re not as focused on the otherworldly as my Sookie Stackhouse novels. It’s refreshing and revitalizing to be doing something so new and different.”
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 pawn shop (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…
