4.0 out of 5 stars Back stories & insights, 26 Oct. 2009
This review is from: A Touch of Dead (Sookie Stackhouse Vampire Myst) (Hardcover)
I automatically expected the next novel continuing the story of Sookie but this book is 5 short stories. Three giving a back story and two insights into Eric and the life Sookie leads now. How Sookie found out about Claudette's death; the third of the fairy triplets and how Claude and Claudine acquired the Strip club. The first time of meeting the vampire queen of Louisiana & Mr Cataliades on the death of her cousin; referred to by Sookie but told here in detail. A third story tells of how Sookie & Amelia turn detective using both their skills to help an insurance agent, an amusing and moral tale. The story of Dracula Night celebration finds Eric in hero worship mode. It is unexpected and entertaining. The final story centers on Sookie's loneliness and her Great-grandfather's idea to cheer her up, which if this has occurred prior to Bill's entry on the scene would have had a very different result. All in all the stories fill in between the various books and also provide an insight into the characters in the novels. I found these stories enjoyable but look forward to the next full length novel. Like all short stories they are over too quickly.

Heloo
Will there be any more sookie stackhouse books? I've read them all and felt that there should be more to the collection. I was really excited when I saw "A Touch of Dead" but now realise its actually not continuing the story, its just short stories. Thanks

The next original Sookie Stackhouse novel should be released in May 2010, at leas according to the author's website. I myself bought "A Touch of Dead" hoping it was the next story but... I guess we'll have to wait
