Book Description

Oct. 6 2009 Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood (Book 4)

"With the sure touch of a master" (Crescent Blues), Charlaine Harris delivers "the sort of vampire thrills that make Laurell Hamilton's Anita Blake novels so popular" (Locus). In Sookie Stackhouse—a Southern cocktail waitress with a supernatural gift—Harris has a created a heroine like few others, and a series that puts the bite back in vampire fiction. Now the hit series launches into hardcover for Sookie's biggest twist-filled adventure yet.

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.

Watch a QuickTime trailer for the HBO original series True Blood.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Fans of Laurell Hamilton's Anita Blake looking for a lighter version of the vampire huntress should cotton to Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic Louisiana gal who really wants to be normal, but suffers from a huge self-confidence problem, a case of permanent bad luck, difficult relatives and a penchant for attracting unsavory characters of the not-quite-human kind. In this fourth quirky installment in this hitherto mass-market series (after 2003's Club Dead), Sookie finds that her bad luck has taken a new turn for the worse. Sookie's love interest, Bill the vampire, runs off to Peru to do research. In his place, Sookie is stuck with Eric, Bill's boss (and head vamp for the district), who appears out of thin air buck naked with no memory of who he is or what he does. Coincidentally, Sookie's brother Jason goes missing. Less coincidentally, but more ominously, a coven of witches (who also happen to be shape-shifters and vampire blood addicts) comes rolling into the nearest big city, looking for trouble. Consistent, well-built characters and a strong, action-packed plot that will keep readers guessing to the end distinguish this frothy fusion of romance, mystery and fantasy.

From Booklist

Sookie Stackhouse has broken up with Bill, her vampire lover, after he cheated with the vampire who initiated him, but being telepathic, she can't seem to get away from the supernatural. Driving home from work one day, she comes across Bill's sexy boss, Eric, half naked and on the run. When she approaches him, he doesn't remember her or even who he is. She gets him to come back to her house, and a call to his second-in-command, Pam, reveals that Hallow, a witch whose advances Eric spurned, robbed him of his memory. Still hoping to get her hands on him, Hallow is posting signs with his picture on them all over town, so Pam is determined that Eric stay put at Sookie's. Sookie is apprehensive about that, especially after her brother disappears, and she comes to suspect that the coven Hallow runs is responsible. But as her attraction to Eric deepens, Sookie finds she is drawn into the vampires' plot to attack Hallow's coven. The first hardcover in Harris' series is gripping and spicy. Kristine Huntley

Well I normally love True Blood and of course I mean both TV show and books I found this Ebook more like a bad cut and paste. Not what I wanted or expected.

This was my favorite Sookie Stackhouse book yet. I loved Eric loosing his memory and the relationship him and Sookie had, but I am happy it was done at the end of the book. Can't wait to read the next one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm... July 9 2004
By anprdp
I am one of the world's largest vampire fans. There isn't a whole lot of vampire films (even bad ones) or books I haven't read. As being from the south, I really enjoyed this series. The first two books were beyond excellent. I found myself as a mother of two staying up to all hours of the night to finish them, but with these last two books I have been slightly disappointed in how the book has been led to almost make Bill non-existant. I found him the strongest lead man in the first two books and now I am finding myself missing him. Although Eric is very appealing, I want Bill back!! I like the monogomy in the first two books and I find Sookie being kinda handed around in the last two. All in all, the book has some high points to its appeal. I just miss my vamp man!!

Dead to the World is the 4th instalment from the addictive and entertaining Sookie Stackhouse series, which for the most part I'm really enjoying. This addition had a lot going for it with Harris setting up some intriguing scenarios for our returning cast of characters. And once I got past the pages of repetitive back story I was quite excited about the prospects. Unfortunately though as much as I enjoy and admire her writing I was never able to get fully engaged in this story. It could be because of the addition of even more fantastical creatures, I mean I could have done without the were-panthers theme and the coven of witches, oh and how could I forget the good fairy but hey that's just me and my aversion to UF speaking.

On the plus side the "new" Eric was delicious on every level though it does make me wonder what Harris has against Bill. Its not that I `m a team Eric, team Bill type girl but why bother to introduce him as Sookie's love just to keep sending him away every book, its just weird to me and doesn't even allow for a good love triangle to develop.

The thing is this series is almost awesome, the writing is amazing, the world building, the action and horror aspects, the relatable, fascinating and sexy characters but I just don't always understand Harris's choices. A few more love scenes wouldn't go astray either, although the 1 that we do get here is extra steamy. In the end I can't seem to stop myself from continuing on with this series, Sookie feels like an old friend now and I need to know where this is all going.

Its New Years eve when we first join Sookie again, she's driving home from a busy night at Merlottes. Bill has up and left for Peru and the last thing she needs or expects to see right now is a half naked vampire running down the road.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Nov. 16 2010
By Crystal
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This series of books provides a nice, easy read while still delivering a great story. Every time I pick one up I find I can't put it back down; they just sneak back into my hands! The story is an interesting take on the standard vampire genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars True Blood, Season 4 or Eclipse? Oct. 27 2010
By Chris
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The story for Sookie and Eric was a soap opera plot, but I was pleased with how Harris ended it. The mystery involving Jason Stackhouse was effective and it will be interesting to see Jason in the next edition. These are good books and I am glad True Blood tempted me into reading them.
