The novel, a delightful hybrid of mystery, science fiction, and romance, was an instant hit with critics. Even though Sookie has her own vampire to look out for her--her red-hot, cold-blooded boyfriend, Bill Compton--she has to admit that the bloodsuckers did save her life. There was less slow, Southern charm and humor, less of a chick-lit focus on hair and clothes and working in the bar although that's still in there. He then proceeds to tell Sookie to open her legs for him, and dismisses her request that he be gentle as impossible. While this one was definitely better than the first book, it wasn't as good as it was the first few times I read it. The resulting two stand-alones were published by Houghton Mifflin.
The book went on to receive an Agatha Award nomination. I'd asked my friend Arlene if she'd work my shift. I'd worked the late shift the night before, and I should've worked the late shift again that night. He continues to steal every scene he is in and is worth reading this series for.

We'd gotten in Bill's hot tub together, then done other things, but I'd gotten to bed by a little after two, and I didn't get up until almost nine. A classically Sookie says she learned about maenads from reading a mystery.
She lives on a cliff overlooking the Brazos River. I slid a glass of the Japanese-developed synthetic B negative across the bar, and he knocked it back and licked his lips. Sam was rearranging the bottles behind the bar, dusting as he went, and Holly and Danielle had plunked themselves down at a table in the smoking section so Danielle could have a cigarette. The series writers combined the maenad story with the orgy story, which actually made a lot of sense but maybe didn't work out as well as they hoped. I do have a point.
For the first time, I realized that though the lunch crowd was mixed, the night bar patrons were almost exclusively white. The signature voice she gives each character remains constant thoughout the whole book. It takes up her story not long after the events of Dead Until Dead finished. Then she comes face to-face with a beastly creature that gives her a painful and poisonous lashing. After this horror she returns to Bon Temps to conclude the abovementioned murder mystery. But that's easier said than done, and all it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for things to turn deadly.

I have a feeling they'll get a bit better as they go on. Then things get really interesting when the werewolves tell Sookie an ominous presence is lurking. He works at the vampire hotel, the Silent Shore, and is the first person Sookie meets who can read minds just like she does.

Second, Harris must have recognized what a gem she had in Eric as he has a commanding presence and quite a large role in Living Dead in Dallas.

Yeah, sure throw in an orgy, invite Erik along to protect Sookie, throw him in a horrible outfit to show off his huge-ness and then not do a thing to describe anything. Luckily the man she is currently nearest to and therefore lusting after forgives her this social faux pas. I'd helped close the bar, and left for home with Bill by one o'clock.
