  1. Charlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over twenty five years A native of the Mississippi Delta, she grew up in the middle of a cotton field Now she lives in southern Arkansas with her husband, her three children, three dogs, and a duck The duck stays outside.Though her early output consisted largely of ghost stories, by the time she hit college Rhodes, in Memphis Charlaine was writing poetry and plays After holding down some low level jobs, she had the opportunity to stay home and write, and the resulting two stand alones were published by Houghton Mifflin After a child producing sabbatical, Charlaine latched on to the trend of writing mystery series, and soon had her own traditional books about a Georgia librarian, Aurora Teagarden Her first Teagarden, Real Murders, garnered an Agatha nomination.Soon Charlaine was looking for another challenge, and the result was the much darker Lily Bard series The books, set in Shakespeare, Arkansas, feature a heroine who has survived a terrible attack and is learning to live with its consequences When Charlaine began to realize that neither of those series was ever going to set the literary world on fire, she regrouped and decided to write the book she d always wanted to write Not a traditional mystery, nor yet pure science fiction or romance, Dead Until Dark broke genre boundaries to appeal to a wide audience of people who just enjoy a good adventure Each subsequent book about Sookie Stackhouse, telepathic Louisiana barmaid and friend to vampires, werewolves, and various other odd creatures, has drawn readers The Southern Vampire books are published in Japan, Great Britain, Greece, Germany, Thailand, Spain, France, and Russia.In addition to Sookie, Charlaine has another heroine with a strange ability Harper Connelly, lightning struck and strange, can find corpses and that s how she makes her living.In addition to her work as a writer, Charlaine is the past senior warden of St James Episcopal Church, a board member of Mystery Writers of America, a past board member of Sisters in Crime, a member of the American Crime Writers League, and past president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance She spends her spare time reading, watching her daughter play sports, traveling, and going to the movies.

  1. You know the worst thing about these books They re like cotton candy On face they look incredibly filling and satisfying but then you bite into them and the fluffy candy mass turns into so much sugar and you re just as hungry when you re finished as you were when you started Except now you re out of money and your mom wants you to ride the Ferris wheel with your little sister.I ve devoured all seven of the Sookie books and now I want , except there aren t any Yet No one should confuse these boo [...]

  2. OK, so I love the HBO series True Blood and wanted to learn , so, like a fool, I went to and bought a specially priced box set of the first 7 books What A Mistake.The first two books of the series, Dead Until Dark and Living Dead in Dallas were passable The author certainly has a great imagination, which is the foundation of great storytelling.But the main character, Sookie Stackhouse, telepathic waitress from Bon Temps, LA is an unbearable, anti feminist, hypocritical and just downright bitchy [...]

  3. Snooze fest The avalanche of characters and the painful descriptions of the wedding just came so ridiculous, and I had to skip many pages I am not the biggest fan of Quinn so that could be my reluctance to this book I just wish Sookie would go to Eric and stop fighting her feelings.

  4. I quite enjoyed this book, although it did remind me a bit of Living Dead in Dallas where Sookie is also asked to go with the vampires to use her telepathic abilities, and finds another telepath called Barry, who also shows up in this one.This book was a bit slow and heavy going in places, but I still enjoyed it, and I liked the unexpected twist at the end, as I really didn t see it coming view spoiler Who knew that the Fellowship would blow up the hotel, leaving loads of vampires burned or miss [...]

  5. POSSIBLE SPOILERS Again, I have to mention that this series is in desperate need of a decent editor I mentioned this in my review of Book 5 Dead as a Doornail Jason s boss is Shirley Catfish Hennessey in Book 4, but in Book 5, all of a sudden he s Shirley Catfish Hunter What In Book 7, we re now back to a version of Hennessey, although it s misspelled as Hennessy This series as a whole, is interesting, mysterious and sexy I feel the need to find out where this is all going, but this book certain [...]

  6. One of the consequences of reading these in rapid succession is that it s easier to catch continuity errors I m on Chapter 2 and have spotted two Harris has Sookie think about how she s 26, but Sookie was 26 in the very first book and than a year has elapsed since the events in that book She also thinks about how Selah Pomphrey has been dating Bill for weeks, but Selah has been dating bill since Book 5, and that book was set in late winter early spring This book is set in late September, which [...]

  7. My absolute favorite Sookie stackhouse to date A lot of stuff happens in this book, but towards the end the action is great and goes somewhere you weren t really sure Ms Harris would take you Sookie travels to a Vampire Summit with Queen Sophie Ann s entourage, which lends to some hilarious moments with different vamps and the fangbangers at their side Like I said before, there is a lot action then in previous books which is just exciting Plus Quinn and Eric play for sookie s interest When I st [...]

  8. Yet another of the thrilling adventures of prize bitch Sookie Stackhouse She is certainly on form There are half a dozen pointless descriptions of the characters outfits and a horrendously awful sex scene in the first 30 pages alone Sookie continues to bitch about every other woman s sex life and fashion sense, despite the fact that in both cases her own are questionable at best Meanwhile what plot there is slowly stutters into life Sookie travels to Rhodes with various supes , giving her the op [...]

  9. 5 All Together Dead Stars Well, well Sookie gets herself into some pretty crazy predicaments I have to say I really liked the Vampire Summit, and how Sookie helps and gets put into some danger Quinn the shifter is yummy and I liked that he seems to really be in lust with her and she with him Andddd then poof Erik comes into play and they end up getting closer than they were Sookie is starting to hear Vampire brains and that can be verrry dangerous for her if anyone finds out Although I love Sook [...]

  10. Still very entertaining, but I was disappointed by her adding creatures from another dimension that could become invisible It was a bit too much for me The parts could have been handled by other supernatural creatures without going so far afield It went too far beyond the scope of the world she s created without a good reason.Also, the setup by the Fellowship was too transparent unrealistic The security lapses were just too gross the scheme was ludicrous I did like finding out about Quinn the o [...]

  11. So, there s a big event that has a lot of protesters who want to kill all of the people at the event All of the people attending this event are staying at the same hotel which supposedly has great security, because, again, there are crazies who literally would LOVE to kill everyone in attendance Soon after arrival, each and every party gets a phone call from the management of the hotel saying that there is an extra piece of luggage that belongs to them and they need to come down and pick it up A [...]

Yay, Sookie finally has a woman friend We are getting into Bechdel test territory, as they are close to having conversations about something besides men and Bob the cat an unfortunate man turned into a cat by Sookie s friend Amelia, when trying some magic that she shouldn t have been messing with.And if Sookie doesn t get the vampire employee of the year award for her performance in this book, I want to know the reason why The undead had better acknowledge her courage and value in the next insta [...]

  15. I love this series I also love the True Blood series that s based on this series of books I ve always been a believer in not reading the book if you re going to watch the movie, read it afterward but for this series the rule doesn t apply They ve changed the series so much from the book that I can read the books and still enjoy the HBO series I enjoy both and this book follows right along with the previous Sookie Stackhouse installments Ms Harris has a penchant for leaving me hanging on the edge [...]

  16. I haven t read this in a couple years, but I remember thinking it was my favorite since book 4, Dead to the World Eric is in it too If I m remembering correctly, there s a lot action and excitement There s Quinn in this one and Sookie meets another telepath, Barry the Bellboy.At the end of this one is a fantastic scene involving one of the Queen s children, Sookie, and Eric Sookie s bond with Eric grows at the end because view spoiler there is another blood exchange hide spoiler That might ha [...]

  17. This book was a hit for me I love this series, even though it doesn t make me smarter or a better person for having read it And even though it s totally unbelievable and Sookie is nothing like me, and a little silly.In All Together Dead, she s heading to the Vampire summit, the Vampire Queen of Louisiana that s right, Queen of Louisiana, see above paragraph plans to use Sookie s telepathic abilities She and Quinn are hot and heavy and Eric and Sookie s relationship also moves to another level An [...]

  18. This book was a letdown after the run of Sookie books which I thoroughly enjoyed The bridal shower which even Sookie didn t enjoy was a big letdown.It was fun to see Barry Bellboy again when he showed up at the Summit with the Dallas contingent But the vampiric political shenanigans went on too long for me although many readers probably enjoyed this part The various vampire royalty gushing about how glad they were to see someone and thinking how they wished somebody would come along and stake th [...]

  19. 4.5 stars.Pretty much from start to finish, I adored All Together Dead Sure the reveals in it were pretty damn glaring but I definitely was entertained It was interesting how Harris wrote it with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina It certainly brought dire circumstances for the Louisiana group at the summit Sookie s romantic life wasn t holding this book down at all, it s quite obvious, at least to me, who she s meant to be with ERIC Judging by his actions comments and even Pam s comments, he c [...]

  20. Ahhhh such much action The way the explosion was written was just perfect, the scene played in my mind just like an action movie I ll definitely give Charlaine Harris credit, she knows how to write her battle and action scenes, in a way that s perfectly descriptive not under or overly so I wish that Sookie hadn t taken so long to figure out the entire thing though, she sort of just kept it all locked up in her mind for ages it frustrated the fuck out of me As soon as I d encountered Jake Purifoy [...]

  21. For those who can t stand it any longer, Sookie and Quinn finally have some quality time in the beginning Then her life goes back into the usual chaos she seems to thrive on, in this case a vampire summit during which A LOT of bad things happen and Sookie manages to entangle herself with her former beaus again I liked this one because there are so many new characters and yet you get a strong impression of each one Some old characters reveal a little about themselves, in some cases too much espe [...]

  22. This one again culminates in a battlefield of a climax I suppose Bill will no longer be part of the bizzarro love triangle, as Quinn the were tiger lame debunks Bill Eric is still a contender thoughAnyway, this one seemed a bit smaller a story than the others probably because it all takes place in a hotel The vamp summit is, of course, very eventful and the story continues with alligences being switched left and right and new characters developing while others are mercilessly killed off It is cl [...]

  23. All Together Dead4 StarsSookie accompanies Sophie Ann, the Queen of Louisiana, and her entourage to the Vampire Summit in Illinois There she must contend not only with the political machinations of the various vampire factions, and the murder of the Arkansas contingent, but also a possible terror attack that may wipe out everyone she knows The mystery in this installment is one of the predictable and could have been resolved easily if Sookie didn t have the terrible tendency toward forgetting [...]

  24.

  25. If Book 6 of the Sookie Stackhouse series was a turning point, then Book 7, All Together Dead, is the drawing of battle lines Vampire politics, were politics, and an upsurge of human fanatic reaction to the undead are all in the forefront of this plot, making it arguably one of the most substantial of the Sookies to date.Sookie is called upon to join the party of the Queen of Louisiana for a vampire summit in the fictional city of Rhodes Once there, she has all sorts of competing pulls for her a [...]

  26. i haven t been reviewing these books because there s not a lot to review they re just trashy and entertaining every now and then, though, charlaine harris unleashes something as illuminating as this Wow, I said, watching Batanya stride away She was wearing pants like liquid leather, and you could see each buttock flex and relax with her movement It was like an anatomy lesson She had muscles in her butt she had muscles in her butt really what a fucking terrible anatomy lesson i enjoy these books, [...]

  27. Every time I take a break in between one Sookie book and the next I have to reacclimate myself to the heinosity This series really is quite stupid But I can t help myself, I love it Sookie s thought process at the beginning of the book over the merits of warm penis vs cold penis was way too gross for me to handle For real But otherwise this one was alright.cially once the fireworks started at the end.
