Night Shift by Charlaine Harris (Early Review)
Night Shift is the final book in a trilogy based on the (fictional) paranormal town of Midnight, Texas. Its residents (Fiji, Bobo, Lemuel, Olivia, Manfred, Teacher, Madonna, Mr. Snuggles the cat, Diederik, Quinn, Joe, Chuy, the Rev, and newcomer Sebastian) are faced with mysterious suicides in the crossroads in the center of their town. Lemuel dedicates his nights to the daunting task of translating a werewolf-bound book written in a language that only 3 vampires know (excluding himself) to find out what is going on and how they can solve the problem.
I have never been let down by Harris’s writing abilities, and this book is no different. I’ve loved all the books I’ve read by her, and this trilogy somehow makes an odd, small town really interesting to me. Most of the 14 residents have close-to-equal page time and we have gotten a pretty decent background on most of them. I have really enjoyed reading these books and getting to know the characters as their personalities are carefully revealed throughout the course of all three books. I highly recommend this trilogy!
