This was better than the first shockingly enough. I thought it was going to be hard for the author to make the second book as interesting as the first as she was now mostly building on characters instead of introducing fresh new ones but wow... she surpassed herself.
Sookie is even more likeable in this book and you can't help but love her. Bill is once again an instantly attractive character, as is Eric though somewhat more dangerous. Bringing Sookie out of her comfort zone to Dallas was genious and the scenes with the vampire nest governed by the scary Stan were brilliant. The introduction of other supernatural creatures such as more shapeshifters and the maenad was also a high point of the book. Clearly she's building this up for bigger things in future books.
Living Dead in Dallas has just the right amount of blood, sex and violence!! I loved it!...Continua
Glad I decided to give this series another try. The author got it exactly right this time.
This book was awesome. Ever since the HBO series started ive been addicted to the characters. In this one we get to see a lot more of Eric. And I must say I am starting to fall for him, haha. This one just as the first one was super exciting, funny, and of course sexy! I just hope the tv show and can live up to it...Continua
While I was reading this book, I noticed that it was like the polar opposite from the 2nd season of True Blood. There were so many differences that it seemed like it was more like an alternative to the story. Of course, the book came first and the tv show decided to go an alternate route. But since I came to read the book with all the knowledge of what happened in the show, it was just so strange to read all these different things going on.
I hope this makes sense lol....Continua
