We all know that Charlaine Harris is the master mind behind the Sookie Stackhouse novels which helped create the hit HBO show True Blood. She is now working on graphic novels called: “Grave Sight” for the Harper Connelly series. Here is a description on what the series is about:
“The series follows Harper Connelly and her stepbrother, Tolliver Lang. Harper has the power to find the dead and see their last moments, revealing how they died. She uses that power to seek out a living by sharing the information with the living.”
There are three parts to this story and the first part was written by Charlaine Harris and Bill Harms. They have Denis Medri doing the art for these novels as well. Now we know who has written the story and what they are about what does each novel cover you might think. Well here is the description of each novel for you.
“This introduces us to Harper Connelly and her stepbrother, Tolliver Land, as they arrive in Sarne, Ark. the job is to find a kid, Teenie, who has gone missing. But one job leads to another, an apparent suicide Harper knows was a murder. Harper wants out of the town as soon as possible, and soon, she and her brother move on only to be called back when the mother of the two sisters she “found”, is murdered.”
“The second volume continues the story with Harper and Tolliver remaining in Sarne, as more people die at the hands of a brutal killer. That killer seems to be targeting people who talk with Harper about the dead. Complicating matters is Harper’s growing attraction to the local deputy, and the arrival of the State Police. We also see, through flashbacks, Harper’s determination to discover the truth behind her older sister’s disappearance.”
“This has Harper trying to clear her step-brother’s name, figure out who is killing the people of Sarne, and keep from being the next victim herself. So Far, most people Harper helps (as seen through flashbacks) react poorly to her power and the truths she finds. We will see someone who is finally grateful for her help, and that moment stand out in this book that is otherwise fairly predictable as the plot is wrapped up.”
