Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

(Sookie Stackhouse #1)

Rating: 5 out of 5.

My Thoughts:

What I Loved: Well, putting all my cards on the table, I love the entire Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. There’s vampires, and mystery, and some steamy romance; it’s all good! This book is especially good, because it’s when we are introduced to the entire world and characters, and that is always one of my favorite things about a book series.

How I Felt: This book just made me happy. I know there is blood and vampires, and that sort of thing, but seriously, the vampires are pretty darn good looking, Sookie Stackhouse is a pretty kick-butt female lead, and there are some great moments that you sit back and laugh at.

To Read or Not To Read: I know this genre isn’t for everyone, but it is most certainly for anyone who liked True Blood on HBO, as it’s based on this book series. The Sookie Stackhouse series is perfect for any vampire/paranormal/fantasy readers as well! So, if you like any of the above, this one is a 5 star and you should check it out!

What’s This Book About Anyway?

Sookie Stackhouse is a waitress in a Louisiana town. She’s single, just living her life, when Bill walks in. He’s the man of her dreams, tall dark and handsome, except that he’s also a vampire.

My imagined view of Sookie Stackhouse as Bill walked into the bar.

In the world that Charlaine Harris has created, vampires are out and about in the world and humans are aware of them. True Blood has been created, a drink that gives vampires all the nutrients they need from blood, without having to drink from humans. There are vampire rights, and activists that speak for the vampire community, as well as people that are completely against them being in the world. Some vampires just want to live their lives in peace, while others are not so interested in the rules created by humans.

Sookie’s friend has been murdered and she is drawn into that mystery and a world of vampires all in one very interesting book!
