[quote]Excellent…captures the same magic as the world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, and takes it to another level. No matter how unlikely or fantastic an element [Harris] might introduce into her pages it’s always down-home and believable. She’s the Mark Twain of things that live under your bed. —Houston Press[/quote]

The #1 New York Times bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, “is back with a vengeance” (Tangled Web) with this first book in an all-new trilogy—and inviting readers to an even darker place on the map…
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 pawnshop (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).
INCLUDES AN EXCERPT FROM THE NEXT NOVEL IN THE SERIES, DAY SHIFT

Charlaine Harris a New York Times bestselling author who has been writing for thirty years. She was born and raised in the Mississippi River Delta area. Though her early works consisted largely of poems about ghosts and teenage angst, she began writing plays when she attended Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. She switched to novels a few years later, and achieved publication in 1981 with Sweet and Deadly.
After publishing two stand-alone mysteries, Harris launched the lighthearted Aurora Teagarden books with Real Murders, a Best Novel 1990 nomination for the Agatha Awards. Harris wrote eight books in her series about a Georgia librarian. In 1996, she released the first in the much darker Shakespeare mysteries, featuring the amateur sleuth Lily Bard, a karate student who makes her living cleaning houses. Shakespeare’s Counselor, the fifth and last– was printed in fall 2001.
I’ve been curious about Charlaine Harris’s new series. Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

I really should try more of her series, I was a little disappoited by the one with the girl who sees ghosts but I need to try another one.
I haven’t read the entire Sookie series yet – and those are the only books of Harris’ I’ve read – but my favorite so far is Living Dead in Dallas.
Thanks for sharing this, Carmel!

I have a confession to make. I haven’t read any books by Charlaine Harris. *gasp!* I have all of her series on my wish list, but have never taken the plunge. I think I need to remedy that.

I used to love her books. But after the debacle of the Sookie end have taken off. I do have this one for review later this month. I’m nervous but excited. I do miss her worlds.

I adored the first 6 to 8 books in the Sookie series? Then they just seems to fall flat for me, so now I have my doubts about starting this new series…

I love all of Charlaine Harris’s books, but I must admit Dead Until Dark holds a special place being the first of her books I’ve read.

I read her Sookie series but haven’t read anything else from her.
Mary Kirkland recently posted…Happy Raturday!
love her sookie books and am looking forward to the new series.
I used to read paranormal and vampire stories many years ago, then I stopped for a long time. Dead After Dark got me back into reading UF and now I’m totally hooked. I wasn’t wild about the last few books in the series, but the first 6 or so were great.
It’s a toss up between series. Aurora Teagarden or Shakespeare Series.

I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Me Harris but I think the Aurora Teagarden books are my favorites.
My favorite would have to be the start of the Sookie Steakhouse series, Dead Until Dark. That was the start of a wonderful reading experience. 😀
I think it was actually Harper Connelly, Grave Sight! Wasn’t Manfred in that?! I totally dug him.
