Read for the Vampire Reading Challenge
The third book in the Sookie Stackhouse series brings Sookie out of Louisiana to Jackson, Mississippi, when her vampire boyfriend Bill goes missing. Bill’s boss Eric sends her up there to meet with a rather unwilling accomplice named Alcide, who just happens to be a werewolf. By trying to find Bill, Sookie manages to get caught up in the middle of a rather unholy alliance between the local vampires and werewolves.
This book follows in the charmingly funny footprint of the first two novels. I love Sookie. She’s so refreshingly normal in the midst of a completely abnormal world.
But I did find a problem now that I’ve watched the TV series based on this series, and have a good mental image of the main characters. You see, I’m just not that into blonds. I like my men tall, dark and broody. And it’s now painfully obvious that Bill is on his way out, and Eric is on his way in. And now that I have faces to go with these characters, I can’t help but feel way more sorry for Bill then I probably should. I know this will probably all end well, but I’m still a little sad.
But hey, this series is just too much fun to be sad about for long. I can’t wait for the next book!
