Review Quotes:
Praise for #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse novels

"It's the kind of book you look forward to reading before you go to bed, thinking you're only going to read one chapter, and then you end up reading seven."--Alan Ball, executive producer of True Blood

"Vivid, subtle, and funny in her portrayal of southern life."-- Entertainment Weekly

"Charlaine Harris has vividly imagined telepathic barmaid Sookie Stackhouse and her small-town Louisiana milieu, where humans, vampires, shapeshifters, and other sentient critters live...Her mash-up of genres is delightful, taking elements from mysteries, horror stories, and romances."-- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"The series continues to be inventive and funny with an engaging, smart, and sexy heroine."-- The Denver Post

"Blending action, romance, and comedy, Harris has created a fully functioning world so very close to our own, except, of course, for the vamps and other supernatural creatures."-- The Toronto Star

Supernaturally gifted waitress Sookie Stackhouse is pitted against the legacy of her own undead bloodline in this novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series--the inspiration for the HBO(R) original series True Blood.

Since Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse has so few living relatives, she hates to lose one--even her cousin Hadley, undead consort of the vampire queen of New Orleans. Hadley's left everything she had to Sookie, but claiming that inheritance has a high risk factor. Some people don't want her looking too deeply into Hadley's past or Hadley's possessions. And they're prepared to do anything in their power to stop her...
