True Blood’s Creator Charlaine Harris Hints at a Vampire in Her New Series
October 31, 2013 by Rachel Tsoumbakos
Midnight Crossroad is the First of Three Books in This New Series:
Fans of the Sookie Stackhouse novels penned by author Charlaine Harris were saddened to see the demise of The Southern Vampire series this year (for more more than one reason). However, it seems that Harris can’t steer clear of supernatural creatures in her books.
Her newest novel is called Midnight Crossroad and it is the first of three commissioned so far. This series is set in Texas, a place that Charlaine and her husband have been living in for the past two years, after moving from Arkansas.
While Midnight Crossroad will not be released until May 2014, Charlaine had this to say about the series:
[It’s about] a mystical crossroad in a little dead Texas town. It’s at an old town that’s partly derelict but there are a few homes and businesses still in use there. A town called Midnight. And there is a reason the people who live there are living there. I didn’t really intend it to be as supernatural as it’s turning out to be. It’s like I just can’t help myself.
It seems old habits due hard too. Considering she has been writing about vampires for over a decade and with all the fuss that came from the ending in Dead Ever After, you’d think she would avoid them for a while. But, oh no, it seems along with all the other creatures residing in the town of Midnight, she suggests that one of them will be a vampire!
