Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
4 stars. Dancers in the Dark is Sean and Layla's story. A sweet romance about the dancers we met in Sookie's story. I thought this book was longer, not realizing there were two books in the audio. I would have been happier if it was longer, but overall a good addition to Sookieville. Of course this book is based before all of Sookie's books. Narrator does a good job. 3 hrs 27 mins.
1 star. Brittlingens go to hell. This story was confusing and I only listened to about 30 minutes before I gave up on it. It has been awhile since I read all of Sookie's books. So with that in mind I had no idea who these two characters were and where they were coming from. Supposedly they are from All Together dead and this story is in another dimension. 2 hrs 28 mins.
Dancers in the Dark was a great story set in the Sookieverse. I really enjoyed the characters and although I feel that there were some mispronunciations in the book I enjoyed the narration too. The 2nd story about some side security guard characters (who were involved in the Hotel explosion) was terrible...I was bored with the story and the characters, it's only 2-3 hours, but I would have rather paid for a 3 hour book without that story than a 5 hour with....
