by Charlaine Harris

Condition: See description


Gollancz/Hachette, 2009. Softcover. New. Sookie comes to the rescue of a naked, amnesiac vampire - and ends up in the middle of a war between witches, werewolves and vampires!Sookie Stackhouse is a small-town cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. Sheand#39;s pretty. She does her job well. She keeps to herself - she has only a few close friends, because not everyone appreciates Sookieand#39;s gift: she can read minds. Thatand#39;s not exactly every manand#39;s idea of date bait - unless theyand#39;re undead - vampires and the like can be tough to read. And thatand#39;s just the kind of guy Sookieand#39;s been looking for. Maybe thatand#39;s why, when she comes across a naked vampire on the way home from work, she doesnand#39;t just drive on by. He hasnand#39;t got a clue who he is, but Sookie has: Eric looks just as scary and sexy - and dead - as the day she met him. But now he has amnesia, heand#39;s sweet, vulnerable, and in need of Sookieand#39;s help - because whoever took his memory now wants his life. Sookieand#39;s investigation into whatand#39;s going on leads her straight into a dangerous battle between witches, vampires and werewolves. But there could be even greater danger - to Sookieand#39;s heart, because the kinder, gentler Eric is very hard to resist.The Sookie Stackhouse books are delightful Southern Gothic supernatural mysteries, starring Sookie, the telepathic cocktail waitress, and a cast of increasingly colourful characters, including vampires, werewolves and things that really do go bump in the night. Printed Pages: 336.

"With the sure touch of a master" ( Crescent Blues ), Charlaine Harris delivers "the sort of vampire thrills that make Laurell Hamilton's Anita Blake novels so popular" ( Locus ). In Sookie Stackhouse-a Southern cocktail waitress with a supernatural gift-Harris has a created a heroine like few others, and a series that puts the bite back in vampire fiction. Now the hit series launches into hardcover for Sookie's biggest twist-filled adventure yet. When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn't just drive on by. Turns out the poor thing hasn't a clue who he is, but Sookie does. It's Eric the vampire—but now he's a kinder, gentler Eric. And a scared Eric, because whoever took his memory now wants his life. Watch a QuickTime trailer for the HBO original series True Blood.

  "Dead To The World is the fourth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. After the painful events in Jackson, Mississippi, a few weeks earlier, telepathic cocktail waitress, Sookie Stackhouse has vowed off all involvement with vampires. Her ex-boyfriend, vampire Bill, has gone to Peru when, driving home just after New Year, Sookie finds his boss, Eric, (vampire) Sheriff of Area 5, wandering, half naked, on the road near her home, with a convincing case of amnesia. What else can she do but take him home? Then, to complicate matters further, her brother, Jason goes missing.



This instalment sees Sookie encountering vampires, shifters and Weres (as usual), but also Witches, Wiccans and a Fairy. She manages to get on the right side of a Were packmaster, get a marriage proposal from a shifter, save a Werewolf’s life, joins the residents of Bon Temps in a search through the woods, get shot at, witness a battle between a bunch of supernaturals, and kill two people. Sookie discovers that she may not be popular with regular guys because of her gift, but the supernaturals find her attractive in spite of, or sometimes because of, it. Lots of fun!
