Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse novels

“It’s the kind of book you look forward to reading before you go to bed, thinking you’re only going to read one chapter, and then you end up reading seven.”—Alan Ball, executive producer of True Blood

“Vivid, subtle, and funny in her portrayal of southern life.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Charlaine Harris has vividly imagined telepathic barmaid Sookie Stackhouse and her small-town Louisiana milieu, where humans, vampires, shapeshifters, and other sentient critters live...Her mash-up of genres is delightful, taking elements from mysteries, horror stories, and romances.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“The series continues to be inventive and funny with an engaging, smart, and sexy heroine.”—The Denver Post

“Blending action, romance, and comedy, Harris has created a fully functioning world so very close to our own, except, of course, for the vamps and other supernatural creatures.”—The Toronto Star

About the Author

Charlaine Harris is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse and Midnight, Texas, fantasy/mystery series and the Aurora Teagarden, Harper Connelly, and Lily Bard mystery series. Her books have inspired HBO’s True Blood, NBC’s Midnight, Texas, and the Aurora Teagarden movies for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. She has lived in the South her entire life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Hello There Miss Stackhouse...
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 30, 2021
I'm a big Fan of "The Sookie Stackhouse Series".

I initially found the Series in my bookshop in the Town I grew up in Essex *just before* we recieved the TV-adaption "True Blood".

When I got to reading it, I was drawn in right from the off by the World-Building we recieved & it was entirely Adult in nature in a great way.
This is definitely not for a Teenage audience, I'd say anyone 18 & up can find a lot to enjoy in this first Novel of the Series.

Our protagonist Sookie, a telepathic waitress based in the small town of Bon Temps, Southern Louisiana is an intriguing individual that is about to have her world changed not just by the new Vampire in town Bill but by a few big upheavals in her life.

We meet her family and friends along the way all from her first-person perspective. Come the Novels conclusion we have an established World written excellently by Charlaine Harris.

The rest of the Series still sits proudly on my Book Shelf today & it is not going anywhere!

I purchased another copy of "Dead Until Dark" to gift to a friend as well, I'm hoping their gonna like it...
