Genre: Adult ParanormalMy rating:
Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is having a streak of bad luck. First her co-worker is killed, and no one seems to care. Then she comes face-to-face with a beastly creature which gives her a painful and poisonous lashing. Enter the vampires, who graciously suck the poison from her veins (like they didn't enjoy it). The point is: they saved her life. So when one of the bloodsuckers asks for a favour, she obliges - and soon Sookie's in Dallas, using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire. She's supposed to interview certain humans involved, but she makes one condition: the vampires must promise to behave, and let the humans go unharmed. But that's easier said than done, and all it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for things to turn deadly..
Compared to the first one Dead Until Dark, which I am not a big fan of, Living Dead in Dallas, is a huge improvement. Plot and characters are somehow less boring and more interesting. I am really enthralled in Sookie’s little adventure in Dallas. The story pace of this book is faster than the first one.
I am now well versed in the characters of this book. I still like Sookie. I do admire her spirit and her attitude toward things. Sad to say, I still find Bill very boring. I don’t know why. But, I love Eric though. He never fails to put a smile in my face every time he is in the story.
Like I said big improvement, definitely looking forward to the next installment in the series.
