I zipped through the first omnibus & then went straight onto amazon & bought this 2nd volume & zipped through that too. I had real trouble tearing myself away to do anything else & had one 3am moment!
Highly enjoyable series, and I think it's a shame that Sookie has taken off to such an extent that CH probably won't write any more about Aurora (aka Roe she cites time constraints rather than lack of ideas if you look at the FAQ section on her website). I would certainly like to know what happens to Roe in the future, although luckily book 8 does come to some sort of conclusion.
Several of the "taglines" on these books say they are "funny" - well, they're not hard-boiled crime but although there may be the occasional wry remark I wouldn't class these books as funny. In fact the effect that murders have on those around them are handled quite deeply & sensitively.
You can also see the development of the writing (well, I thought so) - in this first omnibus the sex is all "off screen" - in the later books CH is a bit more upfront about it - but not like in the Sookie stories.
I thoroughly recommend these books, even if you don't like Charlaine's most famous series, as they are quite different.
