Living Dead in Dallas: A Sookie Stackhouse Novel
Rating: 4 out of 5
Summary: Sookie Stackhouse, the small town cocktail waitress is called to official vampire business in Dallas Texas. She'd rather not go, but she has no choice as Eric has decided that she is to be loaned at at his will because she's telepathic which makes her a great asset to the vampire race. After the death of a friend, Sookie is devastated, but she's sure the local police officer Andy didn't commit the crime. He was too drunk to do it. She puts those thoughts from her mind and travels to Dallas with her vampire boyfriend Bill only to infiltrate a fringe religious organization that wants the vampire race dead. So much in fact, they've used a vampire that wishes to commit suicide to kidnap another to burn with him. Sookie, with her great luck, manages to become captured herself. However, Sookie has other great luck too, she's saved by the suicidal vamp and a shapeshifter that has also infiltrated the rogue church. Can Sookie and Bills relationship survive the Dallas trip?
My thoughts: I felt like this book, unlike the first really just jumped straight into the action. I really wasn't prepared for such a quick plot. I kind of expected things to work up to that point. However, it wasn't a disappointing novel. One thing I really enjoyed in this novel was all of the passion. I guess that is why vampire's are so irresistible. They're so passionate and this novel really shows that. This one was definitely sexier than the last, and it was nice seeing Sookie outside of her comfort zone, learning to use her powers and even meeting another telepath like herself. This book was also a fast read, so if you're looking for something fast to read, this would be it. This was a great follow up to the first.
