Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse #1) by Charlain Harris
Sookie Stackhouse seems to be the run of the mill waitress in a small town bar, but she brings a little something extra to the table. She calls it a disability, but many others consider it a gift. She lives in a new world where laws have been passed to recognize the existence of vampires because the undead want to mainstream back into society. Sookie meets one of these so-called mainstreamers, and her life and her gift take on a whole new meaning.
Dead Until Dark will not change your life. It is not a literary masterpiece. What it is, however, is FUN! It's a quick, relaxing read with characters I enjoy - a gentleman and a strong female lead that does try to hold her own, even in a world that is not her own. I plan to continue with the series. With another upcoming move, I need a good story I can enjoy for complete relaxation purposes and this is the series that I will be returning for just that.
Are you a fan of Sookie? What do you think of the series? (No spoilers please!)
