It's a dangerous little haunt where the elusive vampire society can go to chill out and suck down some Type O - but when Sookie finally finds Bill caught in an act of serious betrayal, she's not sure whether to save him or to sharpen some stakes.

This is one of my favourites among Sookie Stackhouse books: there's drama (oh, Bill!), there's action (real stakes in real flesh) and there's romance (Alcide the Werewolf - now that one you have to meet). Johanna Parker great as usual. This is a real page-turner (so to speak ;)).
Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.
Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.
I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
I have enjoyed all the Sookie Stackhouse books, but it doesn't matter if a book is fantastic with an awesome plot and excellent writing if the reader isn't up to par. Fortunately Johanna Parker is fantastic in this series. Her accent is pleasant, she doesn't overact and (thank god) her voice doesn't go funny when doing men's or children's voices.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
This series is my favorite of my books. It keeps you wanting more and more. A definite must read for all Vampire fans. Just excellent and the Narrator is excellent.
The novels are always so hilarious. I find myself laughing out loud so many times (the HBO series is darker and more thrilling). Charlaine Harris and the narrator Johanna Parker make a dynamic duo that will keep you listening and wanting more.
This is one of my favourite Sookie sagas. It's a move away from the vampires & into other supernaturals. Johanna Parker is the best narrator too & really adds to the enjoyment.
"Better than TV!"
I' ve watched the first three seasons on television, but like the books better. Johanna Parker does her best to describe Sookies feelings towards her favorite vampires. Can't wait for the final decision. Will Alcid be part of her lovelife?
"Sookie Outside of Bon Temps"
Sookie Stackhouse fights for her lover, and goes deep into the heart of enemy territory to keep to her sense of honour and true love. She's a heroine because she's a woman who will do what needs to be done to keep her man, without ever giving up her own identity and self-worth. In Club Dead, Sookie leaves Bon Temps for an adventure within the world of the dangerous vampire supernatural community. The reading of this book is just right: not too coy and not too knowing. An excellent book in the series and one which shows the scope and imagination of Charlaine Harris's writing.
"well read action packed story"
I saw the True Blood TV series and wanted to find out what happened next. I am enjoying the talking books more than the TV series. The story is told in first person solely from Sookie's perspective, but the character is more likeable than in the tv series. The narrator does excellent voices for all the characters and the story is grippping, introducing lots of new characters such as werevolves into the story. There is humour,fast paced action and romance. NOT suitable for teenagers.
I wrote a bad review for this book but have since changed my mind. I was annoyed that the story didn't go the way I wanted it to. I've since read the rest of the series and all of the books are great and I love the Sookie Stackhouse world. Highly recommended if you want to escape into total fantasy.
"Really Good stuff"
Nicely read, enegaing plot and fast paced. Must confess to watching True Blood first but having found the books I'm definately going to work my way through the lot!
"Great title in the series"
One of my favourites in the southern vampire mystery series
Spoke, the lead character
Johanna narrates all the books in this series
"Truly an experience not to be missed!"
Everything I read I remember, everything I hear I remember...
So as you can imagine I will consume a book and move on never to return, this series of books however are the only ones I have gone back through multiple times. This is because the characters are so intricately designed they become real, the story lines while based in fantasy from the off never fail to surprise and thoroughly delight. I have never had such an all round almost tactile experience from something that I've read to make me come back to them so often and with that first time read anticipation it's nuts because I remember every word already.
They are utterly hilarious, full of blood-pumping action and downright hot in equal measure with so many more facets that will have you also coming back time and again.
The books do not copy the T.V. Show plot line they are completely different the anchors for both being the familiarity of the main characters but both being superb in their own ways.
A definite BUY IT NOW! you certainly will not regret it.
This is book 3 in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Sookie's boyfriend, Bill, has been kidnapped and Sookie, together with Bill's boss, Eric, must work together to save him. This is intense and action-packed from start to finish. Compulsive listening!
