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.

"This is one terrific read." (KLIATT)
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.
I love hard Sci-Fi and Fantasy. And I pepper in there a few Bios.
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.
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.
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.
This book held my interest from start to finish. I was disappointed when it was over (only because it was over). I can't wait to download the third book in this series.
Immigration lawyer in Kansas City. I like Character driven dramas, fantasy (monsters, magic and witches oh my!) and coming of age stories. Favs include: The Book Thief, The Game of Throne series, Harry Potter Series, Dresden Files, Nightside series, anything by Neil Gaimen, 100 Years of Solitude.
Light and delightful, you can always count on Sookie Stackhouse to tell a good story.
I enjoyed the HBO series so much I decided to read the whole series and I am pleasantly surprised. The books are much better than the HBO series. I look forward to book 9 and I hope audible has it when it comes out later this year.
I read the first book because I like the TV series, which contains marvelously dysfunctional characters, but to my surprise I found that the TV series has much more depth than the books (usually I far prefer the book). Still, the first book held my interest to a reasonable degree and I was hoping the serious would pick up, particularly since several interesting characters weren't present. Unfortunately, to say it went downhill after that is an understatement - a precipitous slide down a cliff is more like it. Couldn't get through the second book. If you love romance novels, but substitute vampire for the prince, you will love this.
