Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris


Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse #1) By Charlaine Harris            
For years, Charlaine Harris has delighted fans with her mystery series featuring small-town waitress-turned-paranormal sleuth Sookie Stackhouse. Now, we are pleased to offer her first novel in the series in a special hardcover edition. 
OMG...Sookie Sookie Sookie... Charlaine Harris did bring it with her own twist in a new world. in today's world Vampires are basically out of the closet.. yup we all know they exist, but that doesn't make them any less scary. Sookie Stackhouse is a waitress in a bill hick town, trying to live a normal life- the only problem- Sookie is far from normal. yes she is paranormal so to say. she can read  your mind. you may think this a wonderful power but to Sookie it's a burden trying to  ignore the occasional blast of loud thoughts and sometimes it's a little tough to decipher between thought and speech.
Apart from that in her life comes Bill, a rogue mysterious vamp. everyone in her home town pretty much seems to shy away from vamps, but when Sookie  realizes that she cannot hear a vamps thoughts, she is naturally attracted to this one in particular. this story is great new look in the vampire world, following an everyday kind of normal like us woman juggling  responsibilities with work,friends, family- her grandmother and Jason her brother. we meet a couple more vamps- good? evil? you shall see just dive in. 




Living Dead in Dallas (Sookie Stackhouse #2) By Charlaine Harris                                                                                Waiting tables, sweeping floors, reading minds and solving mysteries for the undead. It's all in a day's work for Sookie... Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is on a streak of real bad luck. First, her co-worker gets murdered and no one seems to care. Then Sookie is attacked - and poisoned - late one night by some weird and apparently mythical beast. She only survives because the local vampires roll up and graciously suck the poison from her veins (like they didn't enjoy it). But in return the blood-suckers need a favor. Which is why Sookie ends up in Dallas, using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire, on the condition that her undead friends don't do anything, well, vampiric while she's there. Easier said than done. All it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for things to turn deadly.

OMG I cry as I say goodbye to one of my favorite characters from book one. As I say goodbye I am oh so more intrigued by Mr Northman. hmm what did they say about blondes? OK so we are getting a deeper look into the vamp world and an even deeper peek as to how things are run. Hey who would have thought or even consider the other supernatural creatures in this world.  Great action, twists and turns. Sookie  is attacked by some weird type of supernatural creature, she is  saved by the vamps and in turn is jetted of to Dallas to repay the favor. Here she is on the hunt for a missing Vamp, which in turn leads here to a pseudo  psycho cult against everything Vampire. Not to mention she has a pending investigation to get to back home.  Great twists and turns an ending you can't believe. sex isn't bad either...  can't wait for the next one





Club Dead (Sookie Stackhouse #3)                   by Charlaine Harris                                                                                    Things between cocktail waitress Sookie and her vampire boyfriend Bill seem to be going excellently (apart from the small matter of him being undead) until he leaves town for a while. A long while. Bill's sinister boss Eric has an idea of where to find him, whisking her off to Jackson, Mississippi to mingle with the under-underworld at Club Dead. When she finally catches up with the errant vampire, he is in big trouble and caught in an act of serious betrayal. This raises serious doubts as to whether she should save him or start sharpening a few stakes of her own


In the third installment to the series, Sookie continues on a wonderful adventure, where she goes hunting for her missing vamp boyfriend Bill with non other than the unmistakable Eric Northman. As  Sookie travels looking for Bill, we get a look into the hierarchic system of the vamps, and find out a little of Bill's past. We also meet the wolf man aka Alcide, who does seem to  share a somewhat spark with Sookie. Will he tear her from Bill?  The book did drag a little  but as it continues , with super shockers, jaw droppers and erotic trances that have you hooked to the end. 





Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse #4)by Charlaine Harris
When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn't just drive on by. Turns out the poor thing hasn't a clue who he is, but Sookie does. It's Eric the vampire--but now he's a kinder, gentler Eric. And a scared Eric, because whoever took his memory now wants his life


This is definably my favorite Sookie Stackhouse book so far. Eric  is found by Sookie, his memory wiped clean. this leads to Sookie harboring him until she can figure out how to fix this. while trying to find a solution, clues lead to one of the most dangerous of enemies ever. Man... I must say Sookie's brother's curiosity and stupidity also leads to a suprising twist on his part. Charlaine really brought it in this one.  Sex is great, story flows well and the comradely is great.I definitely am in  love with Eric now for sure.  I do feel a little sorry for Bill...but you know what you reap what you sew...no turning back. .





Dead as a Doornail (Sookie Stackhouse #5)by Charlaine Harris
When she is not waitressing or preoccupied with her own amorous adventures, telepath Sookie Stackhouse is tracking down a serial killer of shapeshifters. Her sleuthing is partly altruistic, but she's also trying to save her were-panther brother, Jason, who has become the chief suspect in the crime. A three-ring circus of sexy supernaturalism



Not my favorite in the series but still pretty good. There is a shooter killing out shifters and Sookie is on the prowl to find out who. With this going on she is also busy dodging the swoons and advances of nearly every main supernatural character she has met from book 1, in addition to Quinn. she does have back up protection though from her - believe it or not- fairy god mother Claudine. with all these supernatural things going on at the same time some one is bound to get hurt soon if nothing is done. 




Definitely Dead (Sookie Stackhouse #6)          by Charlaine Harris
This entry in Charlaine Harris's genre-blending Southern Vampire series -- an amalgam of mystery, dark fantasy, and paranormal romance -- is easily the most revealing and thematically pivotal volume to date. In the saga's sixth installment, Definitely Dead, telepathic Louisiana barmaid Sookie Stackhouse finds out jaw-dropping information about her first love, 130-something vampire Bill Compton, as well as equally astonishing insights into her own ancestry.


Ok  so now Sookie got some bad news, as if that was never the case in any of these books, right off she finds out that one of her very few living relatives is not alive anymore. with that she goes to investigate her death with new love interest in tow Quinn. A nice refresher from the vamps, but Quinn is not just human, he is supernatural were-tiger, who seems to have the right connections in the right places. when things don't go well and Sookie's investigation is side tracked by her own kidnapping, Sookie is once again faced with  fighting off death and solving a mystery before someone else dies







All Together Dead (Sookie Stackhouse #7)by Charlaine Harris


Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse has her hands full dealing with every sort of undead and paranormal creature imaginable. And after being betrayed by her longtime vampire love, Sookie must not only deal with a new man in her life—the shapeshifter Quinn—but also contend with the long-planned vampire summit.

The summit is a tense situation. The vampire queen of Louisiana is in a precarious position, her power base weakened by hurricane damage to New Orleans. And there are some vamps who would like to finish what nature started. Soon, Sookie must decide what side she'll stand with. And her choice may mean the difference between survival and all-out catastrophe

This was my second favorite in the series. When an old enemy is forgotten or much worse underestimated, it can lead to your demise, and that's exactly what happens here. Sookie attends a summit or as I look at it Vamp convention where her services are being use by the great Queen Sophie Ann- once lover to her dead cousin Hadley. Sookie is also faced with some hard choices, while at the same time Quinn and Eric vie for her heart (or pants). she meets another of her kind which is comforting to a point. we also see more in depth  to the vampire world. definately fireworks in the end. 



From Dead to Worse (Sookie Stackhouse #8)by Charlaine Harris


Sookie Stackhouse has a lot on her mind. Not only is telepathic Louisiana cocktail waitress still reeling from Hurricane Katrina tragedies and the explosion at the vampire summit; she's also understandably preoccupied with the devilish disappearance of Quinn, her main squeeze. Reviewers have praised Charlaine Harris's Southern Vampire series as "deliciously fiendish [and] increasingly riotous"; to that praise we would add "addictively alluring




Definitely from dead to worse, who would have thought it could be. After the terrible bombing at the convention everyone is finally trying to recoup., and even thought  that made a big dent in the vamps worlds the rest of the world was moving on. The weres have the war going on, the vamps fight for power continues, a secret of the fae is revealed, and Sookie is somewhat in the middle of finding herself. (somewhat) so with all this going on and Sookie is the main thread common with all this , wars peace finalities are played out.






Dead and Gone (Sookie Stackhouse #9)    by Charlaine Harris
Except for Sookie Stackhouse, folks in Bon Temps, Louisiana, know little about vamps-and nothing about weres. Until now. The weres and shifters have finally decided to reveal their existence to the ordinary world. At first all goes well. Then the mutilated body of a were-panther is found near the bar where Sookie works-and she feels compelled to discover who, human or otherwise, did it. But there's a far greater danger threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhuman beings-older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves-is preparing for war. And Sookie finds herself an all-too human pawn in their battle.
Another favorite. I thought that Charlaine could not bring it, but in dead and gone the Faes have come to play in the games now, and guess what...they don't play nice. great action suspense and thrilling story lines will have you hooked. Everyone is needed and comes to Sookie's rescue. What will be the outcome... you must read. Some of the most ruthless and savage of enemies in this one. 




Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse #10)by Charlaine HarrisSookie Stackhouse somehow survived the Faery War, but life never seems to get easy for Bon Temps' telepathic (but tip-poor) barmaid. In the tenth instalment of Charlaine Harris's resilient Southern Vampire series, Sookie and heartthrob Eric Northman come under intense regal scrutiny, but there are dangers even closer at hand: The doors to Faery slammed shut before some Fae were able to return and they're holding Sookie very personally responsible

I must say this one dragged a little for me. we meet Hadley's son who has the same gift as Sookie. Eric and Sookie are going strong but that relationship is put into question whether it's th blood working its magic or true feelings. Eric's maker pops his head into town with his own plans for Eric.  not to mention the new royal family is like a thorn in the ass. What will come to play and is Eric and Sookie truly in love with each other or can we blame it on the V. Only one way to find out.








New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris has re-imagined the supernatural world with her “spunky” (Tampa Tribune) Southern Vampire novels starring telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Now, for the first time, here is every Sookie Stackhouse short story ever written—together in one volume. Stories include “Fairy Dust,” “One Word Answer,” “Dracula Night,” “Lucky,” and “Giftwrap.” Short Stories in the order in which they occur in Sookie’s life: “Fairy Dust” (from Powers of Detection) after the events in Dead to the World “Dracula Night” (from Many Bloody Returns) before the action of Dead as a Doornail “One Word Answer” (from Bite) after Dead as a Doornail “Lucky” (from Unusual Suspects ) after All Together Dead “Gift Wrap” (from Wolfsbane and Mistletoe) before Dead and Gone
A Touch of Dead (Sookie Stackhouse #4.1, 4.3, 5.1, 7.1 & 8.1)Novella                        by Charlaine Harris
Multiple short stories to tie up some ends and to sedate us while we wait for the next book. stories were so- so. Saw some insight to the newer characters. Nothing to great, and not as good as the books but  an ok novella.







Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse #11)                                                                                 by Charlaine Harris                                                              With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. But Sookie suspects otherwise and she and Sam work together to uncover the culprit - and the twisted motive for the attack. But her attention is divided. Though she can't 'read' vampires, Sookie knows her lover Eric Northman and his 'child' Pam well - and she realises that they are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, she is drawn into the plot -which is much more complicated than she knows. Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human - and that there is a new Queen on the board . . 

So with the new king in town with a huge territory, Sookie and Eric find that they are mere puppets being played by the King's lackey- who is so power hungry- he will basically kill anyone who challenges him. Eric and Sookie's relationship is on the rocks again due to the fact Eric is acting really secretive. I must say in this one there was a bit too much cleaning. I think her attic is spotless at this point. I think i know what to get Sookie for Xmas- a broom- Dragging a little all the action comes down to the end of the story.  I will give this  Maybe it's time for Charlaine to end the series

                                  





REVIEWS TO COME

Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12)By Charlaine HarrisHardcover, 352 pagesExpected publication: May 1st 2012 by Gollancz

The seventh installment of Charlaine Harris's Southern Vampire saga (after 2006's Definitely Dead) marks a decidedly dramatic turn in the series that features lovable telepathic Louisiana barmaid Sookie Stackhouse. What started out as a relatively lighthearted amalgam of romance, paranormal fantasy, and mystery has gradually evolved into a complex and wildly compelling literary juggernaut comparable to Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles and Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake novels
