Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris, THE SOOKIE STACKHOUSE aka SOUTHERN VAMPIRE SERIES #Review

Dead Until Dark: A Sookie Stackhouse Novel

With a large series such as The Sookie Stackhouse series it’s tempted to review the whole kit n caboodle. Instead I’ve decided to review each book individually. Charlaine wrote them to go with each other, but you can pick up any book. She did a great job at giving the reader enough past information so you won’t become lost.

However, I’m starting with the first book in the series: Dead Until Dark.

We quickly meet Miss Sookie Stackhouse and Vampire Bill in the opening chapter. Sookie is a telepathic barmaid who considers her gift to be nothing short of a curse. It has stood as a hindrance her whole life with the townsfolk of Bon Temps thinking she is crazy. She also quickly found that relationships are out of the question. This of course means that she is still very much a virgin, and doesn’t really know much about dating, sexual relationships and the emotional side either.

All of this ends when she meets Bill, a vampire who is years old, but more importantly she can’t read his mind. Sookie quickly finds herself drawn to Bill, but with him comes a dangerous life she isn’t prepared for. With the vampires out in the open they quickly realize Sookie’s curse is truly a gift.

Will Sookie find the love she has always wanted? Will she learn to love her telepathy or will she be doomed to live up to her nickname? Does she have what it takes to be the lover of a vampire? Well you’ll have to read it to find out!

My opinion:

I have always been a fan of the HBO series True Blood, but I didn’t read the book until this year. In fact I’ve had the book for over six months. I honestly just kept forgetting about it

The characters alone are enough to make you keep reading. You’ll quickly fall in love with Sookie and all of her quirks. Then there are the vampires, shifters, were-community and more. Each page will leave you wanting more and more.

    Thanks for this review! I haven't read the book either, I am not even such a big fan of the series, but it seems that it's really good, and the hype around it is not fake, so I think I'll give it a try. Thanks again for the recommendation! Flora
