I have a love/hate relationship with this series so far...

I was kind of wondering where this story was going to go after reading the first book. There just didn't seem to be anywhere... but the author did a good job of continuing Sookie's story (can I say I HATE the name of the heroine. Sookie? Really? I'm not even going to point out Stackhouse.) (And who names a vampire Bill?!!??! Okay, okay...)

I must admit that the author has managed to suck (shut up) me into this series. I want to know what happens next... and then next...

This particular book had strong plot and moved quickly. The author wrapped it up nicely and told what she needed to tell without boring me or moving too quickly. I found the writing much improved from the first book and I found the heroine (in spite of her horrible name) much more likable and more heroine-like. I even liked the vampire more, he seemed less stiff (shut UP!).

I like the details the author put into certain areas of the book. For instance, now that vampires are "out of the coffin" (SHUT UP!), they have the obvious problem of transportation. I mean, now that they live among us, they want to go on vacation too. The solution? Well, you'll have to read it to find out...

And if you've read the first, you'll read the second. And, like me, you will have just bought the third one too...

A Must for Trueblood, vampire and Charlene Harris Lovers!
Beware there may be spoilers, so stop and consider before moving on!          We're back with the amazing vampire/telepathic human couple Bill and Sookie. I was excitied to learn that Charlene Harris, bless her heart. wrote an addition to her first Sookie Stackhouse novel, Dead until Dark. Besides she couldn't just cut off the Sookie and Bill relationship, could she? I love seeing those two in action.      This book is better then even …

I wish I could be a New York Times bestselling author. I know Charlaine Harris is one `cause it says so on the cover of her book. And I find myself wondering, was she best-selling before or after they made the TV series? Whatever, she must've been pretty popular or why would they have used her books.      I wish... but when I read the Sookie Sackhouse novels I know I never will be. Charlaine Harris has a wonderful way with words. She creates a truly intriguing and believable …

I've only read the first four books so far, but this is my least favorite of the four. I liked the introduction to The Fellowship of the Sun, and knowing more about that. And the bellboy was a fun new character, but aside from that this one lacked something for me. It was still a great book, don't get me wrong, but I definitely prefer the others in the series so far.
