Another fantastic tale of the odd residents of Midnight, Texas! In this, the third installment, people are coming to the crossroads in Midnight for the sole purpose of killing themselves.
Eventually, the residents figure out that something supernatural is going on, and more than likely, it lives underground right below the traffic signal at the crossroads.
In the meantime, as a subplot, someone seems to be after Olivia (the local assassin), and Teacher and Madonna Reed (Madonna runs and cooks at the local diner), don’t seem to be exactly who we thought they were.
It turns out that the entity living under the crossroads is attempting to rise. And it wants Fiji, the local witch. Virgin witch.
There’s plenty of fun and action in this story, and the Midnight series has become my favorite of Ms. Harris’s. I’ve really grown rather attached to the people of Midnight.
Now, I have watched the first season of the TV show adapted from these books. What is weird to me, as I began to read the third book, is that they took plot elements from both book one and book three. And threw in a few non-book scenarios, as well. The TV show was fun, though, and they teased the second book at the end of the first season, so I hope there will be a second season. I also hope that Charlaine will change her mind about this being a trilogy and write some more Midnight, Texas books.
