Product description


Midnight Crossroad Sparkles (SFX)

A promising start to a new series...once you've entered, you'll never leave (Sci-Fi Now)

All of Harris' trademarks are present - charm and wit, pacy storytelling and likeable characters (We Love This Book)

Midnight Crossroad - featuring an oddball cast including a witch, a vampire and a talking cat - soon has you under its spell (THE SUN)

A gently paced mystery with a supernatural slant, populated by endearing, varied and well-constructed characters....Definitely recommend (Civilian Reader)

A slow burning novel which successfully juggles setting the scene for an ongoing series with a self-contained story. (Sci-Fi Bulletin)

I can see many nights being lost to the wonder of Midnight. 4 /5 (Backwards Compatible)

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)

Midnight Crossroad is another compelling book by Charlaine Harris. I love her storytelling style and the wonderful characters she creates (Following the Nerd)

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)

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)

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)

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)

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)

A sinster read for lovers of the vampire series to get their teeth into (Manchester Evening News)

A pleasurable and enjoyable read...I can't honestly wait for my my next visit to Midnight (Gav Reads)

It's fun, a page turner that you'll romp through in no time (Piper at the Gates of Fantasy)

Midnight Crossroad is an unforgettable kick-start to a fresh and very exciting new series (Fiction Facination)

Harris is back with a vengeance! (TW Books)

This book appears to have it all (Escapes of a Bookworm)

It's clear from the start that this is an author at the peak of their ability. (SF Book)

If you like your soap-opera with fangs and magic, then this will delight you. (Starburst Magazine)

An excellent start to what looks to be an intriguing and very entertaining series (Reader Dad)

a riot of freaky fun (The Peterborough Telegraph)

It seems you only live in Midnight if you have a secret you want nobody to know, and I am looking forward to the books to come so that the ghostly mists lift and more is revealed (Novelicious)

promising first installment of her new Midnight, Texas trilogy. It combines the classic elements of mystery with the highly popular supernatural elements of Urban Fantasy, and weaves a story that will keep you guessing who (or what) dunit, from start to finish (Rabid Reads)

Charlaine Harris has a style of writing that makes you feel right at home with her characters (Pissed off Geek)

This is a really fantastic start to a new series, with a wonderfully eclectic cast of characters and a truly strange town they call home. I loved it and I cannot wait to get back to Midnight for more. (Review Diaries)

Signalling the return of Harris as the queen of urban fantasy, MIDNIGHT CROSSROAD with its oddball cast, southern charm and easy pace will whet your appetite for more of her original supernatural mysteries. (What Danielle Did Next Blog) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
