Sookie Stackhouse, the buxom, blonde, barmaid from Bon Temps is back again. Dead to the World begins one week after the ending of Club Dead. To recap, Sookie is being pursed by four men: Bill, the local vampire who is sort of an ex- but not really; Eric the Viking vampire, who is also the Vampire Sheriff of Area 5; Alcide, a werewolf with a vicious ex- who is definitely still in the picture; and lastly, Sam, the loyal collie, owner of Merlotte's and Sookie's boss. The vampires need Sookie for her telepathic abilities. Alcide and Sam just want to get close, but each has different impediments. Sookie herself is still hurt over Bill's betrayal with his maker, the vampire Lorena.
In the past year Sookie has been thrown into some very dicey situations. Dead to the World opens a whole new set of difficulties. Sookie is besieged from all directions and must fight for survival. Her heart and the rest of her body are once again thrust in dangers path. At the close of Dead to the World, Sookie gains a great deal of insight into all the men in her life. Once again Charlaine Harris has created both a witty and entertaining adventure to snare her readers with.
Charlaine Harris is the author of three previous Sookie Stackhouse novels; Dead Until Dark, Living Dead in Dallas, and Club Dead. She is also the author of two popular mystery novel series, the Aurora Tegarden series and the Lily Bard Shakespeare series. Dead to the World will be released in May, 2004.
