Read full description of the books:
This review covers books 1-8.
These are a lot of silly fun, and more than a little addictive. They are decently well written (despite some continuity issues) but pretty much what you'd expect from a romance/mystery novel. Sookie's "voice" works better in some books than in others, and some plot threads are more compelling than others. Just when things started to drag a bit, there was a hell of a plot twist, and not one that I'd seen coming. I've enjoyed the whole series, so far, though book 4 is definitely my favorite.
I vote no on the Twilight/Southern Vampire Mysteries comparisons. Both series feature a human female who gets mixed up in what Sookie would call "crazy vampire shit," and both have some werewolf action going on, but that's about as deep as the similarities go. They are different kinds of stories, written differently and focusing on different issues.
And, while I'm comparing, I'll say that I like Sookie better here in the books than I do on True Blood, the HBO series inspired by the books. I say "inspired by," rather than "based on," because some of the changes are pretty substantial, though not necessarily bad - I like Bill better on the show, for example, and quite like the way Tara and Lafayette were changed/expanded. I love Eric in both versions :)
Looking forward to the next one (comes out in May, I believe)...

Read information about the authorCharlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over thirty-five years. A native of the Mississippi Delta, she grew up in the middle of a cotton field. Charlaine lives in Texas now, and all of her children and grandchildren are within easy driving distance.
Though her early output consisted largely of ghost stories, by the time she hit college (Rhodes, in Memphis) Charlaine was writing poetry and plays. After holding down some low-level jobs, her husband Hal gave her the opportunity to stay home and write. The resulting two stand-alones were published by Houghton Mifflin. After a child-producing sabbatical, Charlaine latched on to the trend of series, and soon had her own traditional mystery books about a Georgia librarian, Aurora Teagarden. Her first Teagarden, Real Murders, garnered an Agatha nomination.
Soon Charlaine was looking for another challenge, and the result was the much darker Lily Bard series. The books, set in Shakespeare, Arkansas, feature a heroine who has survived a terrible attack and is learning to live with its consequences.
When Charlaine began to realize that neither of those series was ever going to set the literary world on fire, she regrouped and decided to write the book she’d always wanted to write. Not a traditional mystery, nor yet pure science fiction or romance, Dead Until Dark broke genre boundaries to appeal to a wide audience of people who simply enjoy a good adventure. Each subsequent book about Sookie Stackhouse, telepathic Louisiana barmaid and friend to vampires, werewolves, and various other odd creatures, was very successful in many languages.
The Harper Connelly books were written concurrently with the Sookie novels.
Following the end of Sookie's recorded adventures, Charlaine wrote the "Midnight, Texas" books, which have become a television series, also. The Aurora Teagarden books have been adapted by Hallmark Movie & Mystery.
Charlaine is a member of many professional organizations, an Episcopalian, and currently the lucky houseparent to two rescue dogs. She lives on a cliff overlooking the Brazos River.
