Now that Charlaine Harris has killed off her Sookie Stackhouse series, she’s starting over with a brand new rural Gothic trilogy, starting with Midnight Crossroad, coming May 6. Last November, Harris gave EW a little tease into the upcoming novel:
The Midnight books are about a group of people, all of them with secrets, drawn to a remote and rural crossroad in Texas. Some of them are people I’ve wanted to revisit from other, older, series, and some of them are people my readers have never met before. There are supernatural elements in the Midnight books, but they’re not as focused on the otherworldly as my Sookie Stackhouse novels. It’s refreshing and revitalizing to be doing something so new and different.
Now EW has the exclusive trailer for Midnight Crossroad — which looks a little like the opening credits to a True Blood-like TV show. Check it out below.
