I must be the last person on the planet to have read a Sookie Stackhouse novel.
DEAD IN THE FAMILY is the 10th in the Sookie series and rather than go back to the start and read the lot, I delved in.
Despite not knowing the characters (and there were a lot of them!) I was sucked into the story courtesy of the author's voice.
Charlaine Harris has a way of weaving words together that make you want to turn the pages, despite not knowing much of the background already woven into this popular series.
A brief rundown of the book:
Sookie is a telepath.
Her lover, Eric, is a big-shot vampire.
Her cousin Claude is a fairy.
Her brother Jason is a were-panther.
And the cast just gets bigger and better from there!
I've never watched Trueblood either, inspired by this book series. Would be interesting viewing...
