    New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has re-imagined the supernatural world with her "spunky" (Tampa Tribune) Southern Vampire novels, starring telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Now, for the first time, here is every Sookie Stackhouse short story ever written - together in one volume. The stories include "Fairy Dust", "One Word Answer", "Dracula Night", "Lucky" and "Giftwrap".

    A User says: "Good read after Sookie's series"

    Fairy Dust AFTER Dead to the World (#4)
    Dracula Night after Dead to the World (#4)
    One Word Answer after Definitely Dead* (#6)
    Lucky after Altogether Dead (#7)
    Gift Wrap after From Dead to Worse (#8)

    *considered essential backstory to next installment

    These are enjoyable light reading, but I accidentally revealed some spoilers to myself and I wouldn't want others to make the same mistake!

    Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul - the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the Whole Foods generation. Patty was the ideal sort of neighbor, who could tell you where to recycle your batteries and how to get the local cops to do their job. She was an enviably perfect mother and the wife of Walter's dreams. Together with Walter - environmental lawyer, commuter cyclist, total family man - she was doing her small part to build a better world.

    "Mixed feelings..."
    Overall

    After I finished Freedom, I asked myself "what did I get out of this?" and, to be honest, couldn't come up with much. But, it was diverting and did hold my attention, so go for it if you're curous to see what the fuss is about. I do think Mr. Le Doux is a fabulous narrator--it's the sort of performance from which you can tell that the talent was having a grand time. He enlived the experience quite a bit, and I heartily recommend his narration of Joe Hill's 20th Century Ghosts, as well.

    In Christopher Moore's ingenious debut novel, we meet one of the most memorably mismatched pairs in the annals of literature. The good-looking one is one-hundred-year-old ex-seminarian and "roads" scholar Travis O'Hearn. The green one is Catch, a demon with a nasty habit of eating most of the people he meets.

    Martin says: "Gets better as it goes ......"
    "Fabulous twisted humour..."
    Overall

    And the audio version is worth it for the voice of Catch alone.
