Publisher's Summary

A new collection of short stories from Charlaine Harris, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Sookie Stackhouse books, the basis for HBO’s True Blood, and the Midnight Crossroad series, the inspiration for Midnight, Texas on NBC. 

Principal Anne DeWitt knew her past could catch up with her, but she didn’t expect it would make her late for school. Killing a man does take time though; so does disposing the body…if you do it right. 

After three relatively quiet years at Travis High School, it seems Anne is in danger of being exposed – even the baseball coach knows more about her former life than she ever imagined. Now, she must find out who else holds her secrets and who wants her to pay for them…without letting it make her tardy again. Anne still has a school to run, parents to manage, and a few students who might benefit from her unique - and deadly - experience. 

Collected together for the first time in Small Kingdoms and Other Stories, “Small kingdoms,” “Sarah Smiles,” “Small Chances,” and “Small Signs” are sure to delight fans of Charlaine Harris.

Southern Vampires a hard act to follow

She nearly did it with the Midnight Series but, while this is a fun read, Small Kingdoms suffers from comparison with the Southern Vampire series. But doesn’t everything? Great characters and dialogue topped by fantastic narration. Definitely worth a read but don’t expect the heights of Sookie and her friends.

Worst Harris book ever.

Misleading title. There is only one very boring story with undeveloped characters you don’t care about at all. Undeveloped plot, undeveloped characters.. Skip this one.

Ms Harris Never Fails!

Again, Charlaine Harris has proven she has originality, and a sense of irony. And this narrator (new to me) has struck the correct tone and rhythm. Thanks! I can’t wait for more stories in this world.
