Sookie Stackhouse is a smart, savvy waitress in a small Southern town. Her ability to read minds gives humans the creeps. So her old boyfriend, Bill, seems perfect for her: since vampires are dead, Sookie can’t read their minds. At last, she’s with a man who might surprise her. But when the pair breaks up, Sookie hopes she can go back to her uneventful, pre-vamp existence. As if.
In Dead to the World, Sookie starts the New Year off with a bang by finding Bill’s “boss,” vampire Eric, running half-naked through the woods. Seems someone stole mighty Eric’s memory—and dropped the gorgeous and now vulnerable vampire right into Sookie’s lap. Eric might end up the only friend Sookie’s got, especially after her brother, Jason, goes missing—and a bloody footprint is found behind his house. Before she can say “Boo!”, Sookie finds herself in the middle of the most violent, bloody turf war that vampires, witches and werewolves have ever known….
In Dead As A Doornail, somebody is gunning for the two-natured, and if Sookie gets in the way, so much the better. Shifters are going down, and her brother, Jason, is a suspect. A wicked new vampire named Mickey has his lethal sights set on Sookie, and her old boyfriend Bill—and newer vampire love, Eric—will fight to the death to save her.
Sookie hopes they don’t kill her in the process….

I've really been enjoying this series, but am wondering where it's going. Sookie loses her boyfriends left and right and lots of questions go unanswered. Can't she ever keep a guy around for a while? Maybe it makes good tv or something. Oh, well. I'll wait for the next one and see what happens.
These books are so addictive! loved them all!
This is a "can't put down" book. Once you get started you have to keep turning the page to see what happens next. Charlaine Harris does a wonderful job of drawing you into the characters.
Excellent books. Have read all 9 and am eagerly awaiting #10. You never know what's gonna happen or who's gonna show up...HUGE thumbs up!!
A great constant page turner...couldn't stop!
Charlaine does a great job at keeping all the characters interesting and your thoughts wrapped up in Sookie's world of Vampires, Weres, & Withces. Even know there are points to the story that seem far fetched you do have to remind yourself you are reading a "fantasy" and that is what makes it fun to read!!!
