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.

Get voice

I appreciate this Charlaine Harris' series, it is fun, consistent in the level of quality throughout, and this one in particular has good plot development. But, this series is better on audio than in book. I listen to a lot of audio books, and I have never (with the exception of his holiness Jim Dale) heard a better voice actor. Not only does her voice fit the story, but she is emotional yet soothing. Get this series on audio, despite the costs, its worth it.
