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 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.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
I liked it but not as well as the Twilight Saga.
