Publisher's Summary

Charlaine Harris' popular Southern Vampire mysteries have been described by Publishers Weekly as "humorous Southern-fried fantasy" with a little bit of romance.

In the follow up to Dead Until Dark, telepathic friend of the undead (and vampire bar cocktail waitress) Sookie Stackhouse puts her newfound powers to the test. After an unfortunate incident, Sookie finds herself beholden to a group of Louisiana vampires. So she agrees to travel to Dallas with her undead boyfriend Bill and track down a missing vamp, but only if the vampires promise to let local humans go unharmed. That seems easier said than done when an upstart religious cult threatens to destroy all things vampire - including Sookie, who is quickly scheduled for sacrifice.

    "I love Ms Stackhouse!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Sookie Stackhouse! A truly delightful rambunctious down to earth kind of woman! Full of flaws and sexy and pleasantly annoying.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    I love Johanna's performance! A true multifaceted performer who portrays every nuance to perfection.

    "Good Series"

    I really enjoyed these books. I listen to this series while I work. They are easy to listen to and entertaining enough to help me through a repetitive job. I would recommend and listened to the whole series.

    "Seen the TV show? Download the book."

    I could say that Charlaine Harris has done it again, but that would imply that this book is as good as the first. Actually, it is better, simply because we've met Sookie and the other characters and have some backstory and character development to build on mentally. I was fresh off a Sookie-thon viewing of the 2nd season TV series, and I expected the two to be fairly similar. Not so much! The TV series is beautifully written; Charlaine Harris could have written the screenplays. However, the book is a work in itself and is a separate story, so I feel like I got two versions for the price of one, so to speak. The joy of the book is in the creativity the author has, but specifically the turn of a phrase. Charlaine continually delights me with one well-turned phrase after another, and her depiction of Sookie as a down-to-earth type girl who is rapidly being educated in the ways of the world. Her character is becoming a little wiser, a little more sophisticated, a bit more discerning. Johanna Parker is spot-on with her accents; if you enjoyed her narration in the first book you'll love this one too. Although the books are relatively short, they are totally worth the credit. Go ahead, download and listen even if you've been watching the series, you won't go wrong.

    "What a telepath!"

    I love these stories. They each have new and interesting twists. She's learning how to manage her 'gift', her skills are amazing...

    "Good Easy Listen, Great Narrator"

    If you thought you liked "True Blood" on HBO, you will love Living Dead in Dallas. The storyline is the same, only better, just as most good books that turn movie/television are. I feel as if I am inside Sookie and I can relate to her(as any young southern girl most likely will.) Thanks C Harris, I appreciate you.

    "Living Dead in Dallas"

    Sookie Stackhouse is a delightful heroine who keeps you laughing even during a suspenseful situation. Enjoyable listen from start to finish.

    "Silly book but great narration!"

    I loved this book. The narration was terrific and really captured the Sookie character perfectly. Enjoyed this so much I read the whole series on my ipad. Would rather have listened to it on the ipad but had trouble getting audible books on it.

    Vampires and a bar maid, what a concept. Like reading Harlequin Romances for the undead. Perfect for vacation listening on the beach. Well plotted and fun.

    "More Fun!"

    This second in the series is just terrific. I am really enjoying the world that Ms. Harris created with the long-suffering, sexy and sensitive vampires. And I adore Sookie---what a great character!

    Okay, on to the next book in the series. I don't want it to end.

    "Sookie is just Fun"

    Unlike the series, when you read Sookie Stackhouse you laugh out loud as this stereo-typical blond falls in and out of the lives of the "other" - vampires, werewolf, and more

    "Living Dead in Dallas"

    This book travels around a lot and gets the characters out and about to peek our interest of other vamp areas. While Sookie is working for the vamps she no longer worries about humans as she never felt human anyway. They are accepting her as one of thier own.
