Vampires, Werefolks and Witches- OH MY! Sookie Stackhouse, our favorite down-home telepathic cocktail waitress and vampire/werewolf/fairy/(insert other supernatural entities here) magnet is back! And, no, her life hasn't suddenly become calm, peaceful and filled with meditation.
In fact, the body count is going up. Bodies, of course, in all the many meanings of that word.
This series is just plain fun escapism. And there's plenty of everything, here, for everyone. Those addicted to 'flights of fantasy' will enjoy the hidden supernatural world that Charlaine Harris has created- a world that is beginning to pop out into a 'real' world that doesn't yet quite know how to deal with it. Guys will love the action- and there is plenty of action: guns, blood, swords, motorcycles, pickup trucks, bar fights, wars... And the ladies inclined to romance will find plenty of "affairs of the heart". And occasional other corporeal components.
Charlaine Harris has spun several series, including: one on a lightning-strike survivor; one about a housecleaner named 'Bard' in Shakespeare, Arkansas; and one *gasp* about a LIBRARIAN!! (I gotta check that one out-) Plus, of course, her most famous incantation: these Sookie Sackhouse novels.
Sookie and her friends have become the (occasionally rather loose) inspiration for the very popular True Blood television series. (Sorry, kids, these are for grown-ups.)
Our adventure continues- and so does Sookie's. If any of this catches your fancy, check them out. (But start at the very beginning: Dead Until Dark ...a very good place to start.) And fasten your seat belts. It's going to be a very 'things-that-go-bump-in-the' night.
