Sink your teeth into the first novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Sookie Stackhouse series—the books that gave life to the Dead and inspired the HBO® original series True Blood.
Sookie Stackhouse is just a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Bon Temps, Louisiana. She's quiet, doesn't get out much, and tends to mind her own business—except when it comes to her “disability.” Sookie can read minds. And that doesn’t make her too dateable. Then along comes Bill Compton. He’s tall, dark, handsome—and Sookie can’t hear a word he’s thinking. He’s exactly the type of guy she’s been waiting for all her life...
But Bill has a disability of his own: he’s a vampire with a bad reputation. And when a string of murders hits Bon Temps—along with a gang of truly nasty bloodsuckers looking for Bill—Sookie starts to wonder if having a vampire for a boyfriend is such a bright idea.

Love this series!
It was ok
Dead Until Dark is a vampire romance novel featuring a honest hard working young lady with mind reading abilities. The story is entertaining and provides multiple events to keep the reader or listener engaged. The characters are likable and relatable. This was a decent start to a series.
Too bloody and dark
I was excited to start reading these new series of books hoping for some complicated and interesting plot. Unfortunately, I found dragging myself to finish the first book. I found it too bloody and dark. I finally managed to get to the end of it, but I am not looking forward to reading any more in this series. I moved on.
