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)
I love these stories. They each have new and interesting twists. She's learning how to manage her 'gift', her skills are amazing...
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.
Sookie Stackhouse is a delightful heroine who keeps you laughing even during a suspenseful situation. Enjoyable listen from start to finish.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
