Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris


Date Read: 2009

Genre: Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
Goodreads

Sookie Stackhouse likes living in Bon Temps, Louisiana, and she likes working as a cocktail waitress at Merlotte's. But she is having a streak of bad luck. First her co-worker is killed, and no one seems to care. Then she comes face-to-face with a beastly creature which gives her a painful and poisonous lashing. Enter the vampires, who graciously suck the poison from her veins (like they didn't enjoy it).

The point is: the vampires saved her life. So when one of her bloodsuckers asks for a favour, she obliges-and soon Sookie's in Dallas, using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire. She's supposed to interview certain humans involved, but she makes one condition: the vampires must promise to behave, and let the humans go unharmed. But that's easier than done, and all it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for things to turn deadly...

My-Thoughts

Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris: This one is a little quicker to read than the first. I like the fact that she just delves into the story. There is more Eric, so automatically I like it better than the first one. This one also has more laugh out loud moments (lycra anyone?). I will say for those that watch the show and just now reading the books: they are different! The Godrick story is different, the Dallas story different, and the Meanade story is very different! …more The 2nd book in the Sookie Stackhouse series!
