Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris

Rating 4.5!!

Book Description: Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is on a streak of bad luck. First, her coworker is murdered and no one seems to care Then she's face-to-face with a beastly creature that gives her a painful and poisonous lashing. Enter the vampires, who graciously suck the posion from her veins (like they didn't enjoy it).

Point is, they saved her life. So when one of the blood-suckers asks for a favor, she complies. And soon, Sookie's in Dallas using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire. She's supposed to interview certain humans involved. There's just one condition: The vampires must promise to behave-and let the humans go unharmed. Easier said than done. All it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for things to turn deadly....

My Thoughts: First I just want to say that I love this series! This is the second book in the Sookie Stackhouse Series. There is actually two stories going on in the book. The first is Sookie and Bill going to Dallas to find a missing vampire for Eric and the second is Sookie trying to solve Lafayette's murder. I enjoyed the story of finding the missing vampire. They figure out that the vampire was kidnapped by the Fellowship of the Sun which is an anti-vampire cult like group. When Sookie is also captured by the Fellowship she meets a shapeshifter Luna who hel
ps her escape. I didn't love the solving of Lafayette's murder part of the book. On the whole I thought that it was really good and can't wait to read Club Dead.

On a side note I absolutely loved Bill in the first book. I have to say I didn't love him as much in this book

I loved the first book in this series. Anxiously waiting for this one to be ready at the library for me. Looks like the HBO show has had all her books flying off the shelves again. Good for her ;o)!
