Visit our Sookie Stackhouse series feature page.

Customer Reviews


I read this book to understand the buzz and fell in love with the characters.

APPLE please add a number of series to book titles. Without them I rather shop on my nook on Barnes & Noble.

Showbie reads first book

After grieving the loss of True Blood for its 9 month hiatus, I decided to see if reading at least one of the Sookie Stackhouse books would take the edge off my suffering : ).

I was very pleasantly surprised when I found myself on page 332, the last page of the book, 4 days after purchasing it. I must say, the books (or at least the 1st book) are as addictive as the show.

Though the story lines in the book and in the show are really only loosely related, I felt I had an advantage having watched the show before i began reading the books. Although, Sookie Stackhouse is the central protagonist on the show, she is the lifeblood, no pun intended, in this book. She does a beautiful job, single handedly, bringing all the other characters to life.

I highly recommend this book to all "Showbies" who need their Sookie fix over these long months ahead of us...On to book 2!!!

Too bloody and dark

I was excited to start reading these new series of books hoping for some complicated and interesting plot. Unfortunately, I found dragging myself to finish the first book. I found it too bloody and dark. I finally managed to get to the end of it, but I am not looking forward to reading any more in this series. I moved on.
