Publisher's Summary

Charlaine Harris' popular Southern Vampire mysteries have been described by Publishers Weekly as "humorous Southern-fried fantasy" with a little bit of romance. In the follow up to Dead Until Dark, telepathic friend of the undead (and vampire bar cocktail waitress) Sookie Stackhouse puts her newfound powers to the test. After an unfortunate incident, Sookie finds herself beholden to a group of Louisiana vampires. So she agrees to travel to Dallas with her undead boyfriend Bill and track down a missing vamp, but only if the vampires promise to let local humans go unharmed. That seems easier said than done when an upstart religious cult threatens to destroy all things vampire - including Sookie, who is quickly scheduled for sacrifice.

enjoyed it but was not in love with it

This is the second book in the Sookie Stackhouse series I enjoyed it but was not in love with it. In this book Sookie and her vampire boyfriend Bill have to go to Dallas to help out a nest of vampires that need Sookie to use her “disability” to help find a missing nest brother. There are some series that I start and cannot wait to get to the next book and this is not really one of them for me. They are good books but not great in my opinion. They are the books I buy when I am stuck on something to listen too but do not have anything lined up. I find that when I am listening to them I don’t want to stop I want to keep listening but when the book is over I can listen to a few other books before going on to the next book in this series. I do like that Sookie can pretty much take care of herself and is not a weak figure, she knows who she is and what she wants and that is refreshing to see. I will probably get them all and am excited about the next two (books 3 and 4) because they have gotten really good reviews. I suggest this book to adult readers who want something a little funny with a down to earth main character. I enjoyed the narrator and think that she gives the perfect voice to Sookie.

The Best Narrarator Since.....

Ok - I saw another review some place that indicated that the Sookie narrarator was as good or better than Jim Dale (of the Harry Potter audio). Of course this peaked my interest, as no one is as good as Jim! Although, Johanna Parker is neck in neck with him. She so thouroughly pulls you into the story with each character, situation, etc. She really understands the author's intent and has you laughing out loud! I love this series. If you like the whole paranormal/vampire genre (with a little romance and LOTS of humor) this series is for you!
