Death's Excellent Vacation

It really can be an endless summer — if you’re immortal. Though a vampire would be ill-advised to take a cruise to Bermuda, the possibilities for getting away from it all — and maybe snacking on some unsuspecting tourist — are many.

Publisher's Summary

It really can be an endless summer — if you’re immortal. Though a vampire would be ill-advised to take a cruise to Bermuda, the possibilities for getting away from it all — and maybe snacking on some unsuspecting tourist — are many….

Sookie Stackhouse and her vampire friend Pam take a weekend getaway to Mississippi in number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris’s “Two Blondes”. And when they end up in a shady gentleman’s club, to escape in one piece they need to do something that wasn’t on their itinerary — something involving a stage, a pole, and very little clothing.

New York Times best-selling author Katie MacAlister’s “The Perils of Effrijim” follows a demon whose vacation in Paris is disrupted when he’s banished to another plane, thus kicking off a crazy dimension-hopping road trip across Europe.

Protecting an heiress from supernatural hit men isn’t Cat and Bones’s idea of a relaxing vacation in New York Times best-selling author Jeaniene Frost’s “One for the Money”, but it could get worse. And it does — when Cat’s mother shows up.

Editors Harris and Kelner bring together a stellar collection of tour guides who offer vacations frightening, funny, and touching — for the fanged, the furry, the demonic, and the grotesque.

    "Death's Excellent Vacation"

    This was not worth the credit I paid. This was the most boring short stories I've ever read.

    "Great stories!"

    I purchased this to listen to the latest Sookie and for the Jim story by Katie MacAlister (I just love that big dog!) and what I got out of it was a few more authors I'm going to be reading more from! None of the stories are very long but they are all great! After listening to Ms. Frost's story about Cat, I immediately downloaded the first in her series and now I'm hooked! I'm off to look for the other authors too. This is definitely and 'Excellent' book!

    "Really fun!"

    This was a great introduction to some authors I'd not yet read. Of course, Sookie was the reason I made this purchase, and I really enjoyed the other stories--even laughed out loud a few times. I just wish all the stories had been narrated by Christopher Lane.

    "boaring"

    Maybe Mrs Harris likes those other author but I didn't. Maybe my hope were too high but the purchase wasn't worth it at all. Wish I could go back in time and save 20$

    "deception..(NOT A CHARLAINE HARRIS BOOK)"

    Inspite of its title and top billing, this is a collection of very short stories from several authors only one of which is Charlaine Harris, don't purchase if you are expecting her work.

    "The Sookie Stackhouse story is good but only 1hr"

    Yes I guess I should have read closer but I'm not used to Audible being so deceiving....Not worth the money if your looking for Sookie...

    "Death's Excellent Vacation"

    The narrator is awful. I too thought this was a Sookie Stackhouse novel and not a collection of short stories; most of which Charlaine Harris did not write. Its not bad... just disappointing.

    "Death's excellent Vacation"

    This is marketed as a Charlaine Harris book - but it's a collection of stories by other people that could not sell on their own. Aweful. I suffered through a couple of incomplete short stories, then deleted it..

    "Death's Excellent Vacation"

    Didn't expect this to be single chapters from different books and authors. Very disappointing experience.
