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.

Listen to more titles in the Sookie Stackhouse series.

    "Enjoyable"

    If you are looking for deep reading you will need to go elsewhere. There's drama, intrigue, romance, and of course all the supernatural creatures you can imagine.
    I wanted to listen to the next book as soon as I finished one. I like Charlaine Harris, and I like all the characters. It's interesting reading these after watching the True Blood shows. There have definitely been some changes in the show, the books are only from Sookie's viewpoint, so the show would have to be different to show the other people's view points. Well done.

    "Not as good as the first one"

    The sex angle took over too much in this one, and it wasn't nearly as fun as a result. I will try the third one to see if it goes back to being more entertaining. Great narrator.

    "Love it!"
    If you could sum up Living Dead in Dallas in three words, what would they be?

    Fantastic, enjoyable and all together exciting!


    What other book might you compare Living Dead in Dallas to and why?

    Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniel. Both the heroines are smart, savvy and totally loveable.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    I like her southern drawl. Totally lovable.


    Any additional comments?

    Charlaine harris makes one think that vampires, werewolves etc also love life and that they also have their rights.

    Story
    "Witty and wonderful"

    Another murder has occurred in Bon Temps. Lafayette, the cook at Merlottes, where Sookie works, is found dead, with his heart cut out in the back of a local detective's car.

    Then Sookie is accosted by another creature of the night called an ancient Maenad who attacks, poisons, and almost kills her. The vampires, Bill, Eric, and Pam, save her. When this happened she was on her way to meet them for an assignment. In the previous novel she had agreed to take assignments to help them using her telepathic powers.

    A vampire in Dallas has gone missing and Eric, the head Vampire, asks Sookie to help locate him. In Dallas she learns about a group called the Fellowship of the Sun, an anti-vampire hate church. Sounds like some other fanatical religious groups. Sookie must find the missing vampire and then get back to Bon Temps to solve the murder of Lafayette.

    I am getting hooked on the Sookie series and captivated by the world the author has created. Harris (the author) continues to draw the reader in with more tidbits about vampires and their habits and how they relate to humans. Sookie is quirky, witty, lovable and a fun character who has a sexy, although blah, Vampire love interest named Bill. Sam, Sookie's boss, is a shape shifter who we met in the first book.

    The books are light, funny and fast-paced. They are fun to read, with laugh out loud pages. I'd highly recommend them to anyone who likes paranormal/romance/ mystery or just a really fun read but don’t try to compare them to something else. Let them stand on their own.

    "I am a huge Sookie fan!"
    Would you listen to Living Dead in Dallas again? Why?

    maybe....it moves really slow in some places, I still loved it, but the first book was better..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Living Dead in Dallas?

    I laughed a LOT when they went to the swingers party....TOTALLY not Sookies scene..but she is so brave even when she is really being tormented...you have to respect that!!


    Which character – as performed by Johanna Parker – was your favorite?

    I really do think Sookie is a great character...and I love that she was brought to life for us!! And Eric is a close 2nd... Johanna Parker is GREAT!!!!!!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wouldnt say moved me, but I did enjoy and thought it was really sweet how Eric and Bill take care of Sookie after she is kidnapped...and when Godfrey aka Goderick met the sun...


    Any additional comments?

    I started book 3 today and am already 3 hours in....so just remember when you are at a slow part in book 2, book 3 sucks you in quick and is awesome to look forward too!!!!!

    "Not too bad"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It was a little short and the sub-story in her hometown was anti-climactic and weird.


    Would you recommend Living Dead in Dallas to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes - it had great links to the other stories.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    I love her voice and her southern accent.


    Did Living Dead in Dallas inspire you to do anything?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    no

    I've loved this series since I started listening to them. I have nothing but good things to say about this specific title. It was engaging and fast paced and as usual, Johanna Parker's narration was fabulous.
