Sookie Stackhouse is taking the world by storm and with this 7 book set, you will get all the novels published to date. (Be aware that two new novels are on their way.)

Charlaine Harris' stories about Sookie Stackhouse are addictive and I have to admit I've swallowed them whole. Written in a first person narrative, Sookie, the Louisiana barmaid, serves synthetic blood to her first vampire customer and the story simply hightails from there. The amazing part is, that the quality of the writing and the stories is consistent - soaring high, humourous, and action-packed. There is no book-in-the-middle here.

Bon appetite!

Louise.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Jun. 2009
Format: Paperback
Urban fantasy usually takes place in, you know, urban areas. Cities, big towns, and places where vampires and weres creep in dank alleys.

But Charlaine Harris took a slightly different approach in the Sookie Stackhouse series, the first seven books of which are compiled in this box set. While it has many of the genre staples -- fae, werebeasties and vampires -- this series is solidly entrenched in warm Southern charm and mellow mysteries.

In "Dead Until Dark," waitress Sookie Stackhouse can read minds, which is more of a curse than a blessing. But when she meets and befriends vampire Bill Compton, she discovers that she is unable to read vampire minds. Unfortunately she's run afoul of some vile people who want to drain Bill of his blood.

And she has some personal problems as well -- her grandmother has been viciously murdered, and she's quickly getting in over her head in the world of the mainstream undead. And as she tries to find the murderer, Sookie finds that the supernatural world is a lot more complicated -- and close to home -- than she ever dreamed.

"Living Dead in Dallas" is what it sounds like -- Sookie is hired by vampires over a kidnapping, and ends up mired in a disastrous situation involving werewolves, Texan vamps, and a fanatical religious cult that hates the supernatural. "Club Dead" brings Sookie some relationship problems when Bill becomes inattentive... and vanishes. Sookie sets out to find her absentee lover along with Eric and the werewolf Alcide, but the result isn't what she expects.

Post-breakup, Sookie has problems in "Dead to the World" when she's confronted by a devious band of witches in Shreveport, as well as handling her brother's disappearance and a newly amnesiac (and naked!) Eric.

Wow--this is a great set to have at your disposal. It's got about six of the Sookie Stackhouse novels and they each are better than the last. I absolutely fell in love with this vampire world set in Lousiana and could not stop reading! A must have, that's for sure!! Another good one:Dead Sexy: Two Tales of Vampire Erotica.

If Twilight is for tweens and people who like their romances doomed and unfulfilled, this series is for people who like a little more vamp to their vampires and prefer fun and action to brow knitting and chastity.

The premis is simplicity itself. Sookie is a bar waitress in the South of the US. It's our world but different, because in this version of our reality vampires have "come out" of the coffin. They drink synthetic blood, claim to have been infected by a virus and are busy becoming the new minority group facing a combination of abuse and acceptance. Sookie would like to meet a vampire, they sound exotic, but never has. Sookie is young, pretty and has never left her small corner of the world. She has a brother and a grandmother, and a small circle of friends. She struggles because she has a small disability - she's telepathic - and her life is far from fun, although she tries to uphold her christian values and not moan too much.

Sookie's life changes when Bill walks into the bar she work's at. Bill is a vampire. Soon enough Bill and Sookie are dating and Sookie is learning about a whole new world - one filled with vampires, shape shifters, demons and more. As she adjusts to her new perspective on life and dating the world around her gets more complicated. There are murders, abductions, power struggles and an influx of tasty men all interested in her, something she's never relaly been troubled by before. Can Sookie keep afloat? Can she cope with this new world? Will her relationship with Bill survive the pressures upon it?

Read this series of 7 of the 9 at this time (July 09) books available and enjoy every minute of them. I certainly have.

The new TV series Tru Blood are based on these books. I could not put them down. As usual books are better than TV series. Better than Buffy.
