At Midnight’s local pawnshop, weapons are flying off the shelves—only to be used in sudden and dramatic suicides right at the main crossroads in town.
Who better to figure out why blood is being spilled than the vampire Lemuel, who, while translating mysterious texts, discovers what makes Midnight the town it is. There’s a reason why witches and werewolves, killers and psychics, have been drawn to this place.
And now they must come together to stop the bloodshed in the heart of Midnight. For if all hell breaks loose—which just might happen—it will put the secretive town on the map, where no one wants it to be...
We are back in Midnight, our town of misfit paranormals. We don’t have big groups of one certain type of supe, they seem to be individuals who have all come to seek sanctuary in this little town in the middle of nowhere.
In Night Shift, we are introduced to a possible reason that the supes are drawn here. Being as that Midnight is on a crossroads, of course there is going to be some mysterious, supernatural surprise.
It seems like Fiji is the main focus of this book. We do get parts from the other characters, some relating to the overall crossroads plot. Others to do with our mysterious Olivia. Even those parts, however, have Fiji playing a big role. We see big changes in her throughout the book as she comes into her own witchy ways and it is fun to see. I did enjoy seeing a certain male realize his mistakes, despite goofing up and making things worse for himself.
Olivia has always been curious to me. She is human in amongst all these paranormals, and is in fact committed to Lemuel. She has a lot of secrets though. So far, she has always gone out of town to take care of the deeds or work she has to do. But her previous life catches up to her in Night Shift. She is a Midnight citizen though, and they will back their own. I was surprised at the deception a couple of the citizens had been playing. I would never have guessed from the way their roles were played throughout the series.
The solution to the evil approaching Midnight was a little strange for me. But hey, it just fit with the quirkiness of the story. I just can’t help but thinking “poor Fiji”. She stepped up to the plate though and helped save her fellow citizens!
I thought Night Shift was pretty exciting with all it’s twists and turns. The characters are so deep, and hold so many little quirks that you can’t help but be more and more curious about them. This series has become intrigued me more with each book.
