Book Description

Sept. 29 2009 Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood

Visit our Sookie Stackhouse series feature page.

Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is no typical Southern belle. She can read minds. And she’s got a thing for vampires. Which, in a town like Bon Temps, Louisiana, means she’ll have to watch her back—and neck...

This boxed set includes:

Dead Until Dark

Living Dead in Dallas

Club Dead

Dead to the World

Dead as a Doornail

Definitely Dead

All Together Dead

From Dead to Worse

And with HBO launching an all-new show, True Blood, based on the Southern Vampire novels, the demand for Charlaine Harris and Sookie Stackhouse will be bigger than ever.

Watch a QuickTime trailer for the HBO original series True Blood, based on the book.

About the Author

Charlaine Harris, who has been writing mysteries for over twenty years, is a native of Mississippi. Born and raised in the Delta, she began training for her career as soon as she could hold a pencil. Though her early works consisted largely of poems about ghosts and (later) teenage angst, she began writing plays when she attended Rhodes College in Memphis, and graduated to books a few years later.

After publishing two stand-alone mysteries, Harris decided to establish a series. She began the lighthearted Aurora Teagarden books with Real Murders, which garnered an Agatha nomination. Harris's protagonist, a diminutive Georgia librarian whose life never turns out quite the way she planned, kept Harris busy for several books, but finally Harris (and Aurora) grew restless.

The result of this restlessness was the much edgier Shakespeare series — set not in England, but in rural Arkansas. The heroine of the Shakespeare books is Lily Bard, a tough and taciturn woman whose life has been permanently reshaped by a terrible crime and its consequences. In Shakespeare's Landlord, the first in the series, Lily is caught at a moment when the shell she's built around herself is just beginning to crack, and the books capture Lily's emotional re-entry into the world, while also being sound mysteries.

Harris's latest venture is a series about a telepathic barmaid in southern Louisiana. The first book in the series, Dead Until Dark, won the Anthony for best paperback mystery of 2001. Each book about Sookie Stackhouse (and her dealings with vampires and werewolves and other creatures of the night) has gathered more readers to enjoy the books' unique blend of mystery, humor, romance, and the supernatural. The Sookie books are also being read in Japan, Spain, Greece, and Great Britain.

In addition to her work as a writer, Harris is married and the mother to three children. A former weight lifter and karate student, she is an avid reader and cinemaphile. She is a member of the vestry of St. James Episcopal Church.

Harris is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the American Crime Writers League. She is a member of the board of Sisters in Crime, and alternates with Joan Hess as president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance. (2004 Charlaine Harris)

4.0 out of 5 stars Time Well Spent! Jan. 13 2010
By Ron H
Format:Paperback
This set is a very good read for any True Blood fan or just a reader looking to escape into the fun world that Charlene Harris has created. The Sookie Stackhouse books are a great spin on the traditional vampire themed genre. The premise for the series is that vampires have outed themselves to the world at large and are trying to integrate within the larger society thanks to the invention of a synthetic blood drink called True Blood. The series focuses on a small town in Louisiana and how one resident there (Sookie Stackhouse) gets drawn into this new world while still dealing with everyday issues. The biggest compliment I can give Charlene Harris is that even though she continues to write many books in this series the stories have not become repetitive and she continues to expand the world in which these stories are set by building upon the social fabric and well introduced new characters. These books are a fun read and highly recommended. Two points I would add;
1. If you can.... commit to reading the series, although each book is a self-contained story I think the story is not as rich without the back stories.
2. Again my biggest compliment is usually in this genre after the first book or two the confines of the world are established and then each book is usually formulaic.. .with main characters.. Introduce new characters, some big event, main characters work through event, new characters die or are sacrificed for plotline. Charlene Harris ignores this and has a rich universe of well developed characters that are central and peripheral to many books within the series.

Time well spent!

It's my summer reading. I've read the serie three times, never get bored. Love book-Sookie! So not like the TV-Sookie! Much, much better in the books. All the characters are better, and it's really funny. It easy-breezy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicting Oct. 1 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I devoured this series as well as the books which followed. I couldn't put them down! I have pre-ordered the last book due out later this month to get closure on the folk in Bon Temps. Be aware if you are only following the series "True Blood" that the series does not always reflect the books' directions. Indeed there are many episodes that are pulled out of the air!!
Nonetheless, aficionados of the series would garner so much more from the books. Great reads all of them!!

4.0 out of 5 stars I was sold on True Blood first... Aug. 9 2013
By Amy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got into these books after watching True Blood the show. The first book is most similar to the show but then almost seems like a parallel universe to the show. The show is funnier, but the books have their own appeal as well. Great value for this box set.
