Vampire Mystery Series Soars!

Bloodsuckers forever! Charlaine Harris' first vampire mystery, Dead Until Dark, introduced telepathic barmaid Sookie Stackhouse and her gorgeous,
to-die-for (perhaps literally) vampire boyfriend, Bill. Dead Until Dark became a huge reader favorite, and word of mouth about this sexy, funny combination of vampires, romance and mystery sent it back for five printings. It's been nominated for a Dilys Award, given by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association to the book they "most enjoyed selling" as well as an Agatha Award, given annually to recognize excellence in the traditional mystery novel!

Now Sookie and Bill are back and better than everthis book is hot!in LIVING DEAD IN DALLAS. For those of you who haven't read Dead Until Dark (do yourself a favorrun right out and get it!), here's the situation: vampires have gone "mainstream," drinking synthetic blood, claiming they have an allergy to sunlight and deserve civil rights like any other minority group. They even have their own "Fangbanger" groupiesbut they're still very dangerous, as well as extremely attractive. In order to protect Sookie, Bill joins the vampire government (he'll do anything for herhe even spoke to her grandma's Descendants of the Glorious Dead society, since he's a Civil War veteran). The Dallas Vamps need Sookie's telepathy, so she and Bill go on a trip to the big city, where they encounter shapeshifters, a maenadNOT someone you want to meet in a dark alleyand the anti-vamp group, Fellowship of the Sun. Then there's a little matter of murder at home All in all, a rousing, hilarious, romantic read!
