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.

    "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.

    "Not as enjoyable as the first book in the series"

    While it wasn't my favorite, I enjoyed the first book enough to download this one. It didn't keep my attention and the narration didn't help entice me to keep listening. As with the first book, the narrator here sounds too naive to be the main character.

    "Good story throughout"

    It is a good story and I am getting used to Johanna Parkers male voice reading.
    Much different than the HBO series, both are fine stories.

    "As expected"

    or even better as the Maryanne-related plot is handled better than what I saw on TV. Johanna Parker does a good job and the book is enjoyable, though this time (as opposed to part 1 of Sookie's series) you can expect more differences between the book and the TV series. All in all, a good listen.

    "Thoroughly enjoyable"

    My friend put me on the the first book, and I loved it, it was light, easy, and entertaining. So as soon as I was done with the first, I bought the audio book to enjoy during my 1 hour commute (each way) to work. I tell you what, this book made the drive very enjoyable. I highly recommend it if you're in the mood for an easy adult fantasy.
