Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She's quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn't get out much - not because she's not pretty, she's a very cute bubbly blonde, or not interested in a social life - she really is ... but Sookie's got a bit of a disability. She can read minds. And that doesn't make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill: he's tall, he's dark and he's handsome - and Sookie can't 'hear' a word he's thinking. He's exactly the type of guy she's been waiting all her life for. But Bill has a disability of his own: he's fussy about his food, he doesn't like suntans and he's never around during the day ... Yep, Bill's a vampire. Worse than that, he hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, with a reputation for trouble - of the murderous kind. And then one of Sookie's colleagues at the bar is killed, and it's beginning to look like Sookie might be the next victim ...

ABOUT THE BOOK True Blood is an HBO television series created by Alan Ball and based on Charlaine Harris Southern Vampire Mysteries. It is based in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, and is just one in a long line of shows that fuel todays craze for all things bloodthirsty on TV. Though a bit gorier and perverse than other shows of its kind, the series works wonderfully for television: fans somehow seem to connect with monsters, shapeshifters and mind readers, relishing the abnormality. The show does a wonderful job of pulling together a unique combination of fantasy, mystery, tragedy, humor, and erotica to become a genre all its own. The first season of True Blood premiered September 7, 2008. Twelve episodes aired, based mostly on the first of Harris books, Dead Until Dark. MEET THE AUTHOR Joshua Vizer is an experienced writer and a member of the Hyperink Team, which works hard to bring you high-quality, engaging, fun content. Happy reading!

CHAPTER OUTLINE Quicklet on True Blood, Season One (TV Show) + About True Blood + About the Director and Producer + Overall Summary + Episode-by-Episode Commentary & Summary + ...and much more True Blood, Season One
When her boyfriend Bill, a vampire who has been rather distracted of late, disappears, Sookie journeys to Mississippi to find her beloved, who has gotten himself caught in a dangerous web of murder and betrayal at Club Dead, an elite underground society.
Sookie Stackhouse has one last adventure in store. Life has taken her from a waitress in Merlotte's Bar, Bon Temps, to part owner; from social outcast to the heart of her community; from a vampire's girlfriend to the wife of one of the most powerful vampires in the state. She has survived explosions, revolutions and attempts on her life. Sookie has endured betrayal, heartbreak and grief ... and she has emerged a little stronger, and little wiser, every time. But with life comes new trials ... The question is, in the end: who will love, who will live, and who will be dead ever after?
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 . . . The Sookie Stackhouse books are delightful Southern Gothic supernatural mysteries, starring Sookie, the telepathic cocktail waitress, and a cast of increasingly colourful characters, including vampires, werewolves and things that really do go bump in the night.

Excerpt: This is a listing of significant characters in Charlaine Harris's The Southern Vampire Mysteries / Sookie Stackhouse novels only. HBO created a television series called True Blood based on this series. Sookie is the protagonist and narrator of The Southern Vampire Mysteries, and resides in the fictional town of Bon Temps, in rural, northern Louisiana. In the first novel, Dead Until Dark, she describes herself as being 25 years old, with blond hair and blue eyes. She also states: "my legs are strong and my bosom is substantial, and I have a waspy waistline." She is written to wear a ladies size 8-10. Sookie, although not highly educated, is well read and has an extensive vocabulary, mainly attributed to her affinity for her "word-of-the-day" calendar. Although Sookie appears to be human, she possesses telepathic abilities, which manifested at a very young age. She is able to read most human minds, and after meeting the vampire Bill Compton, learns that she can not "hear" Bill's thoughts.* She discovers that while it is possible to read the minds of other supernatural creatures, they do not "broadcast" as clearly as true humans. Sookie lives in her ancestral home, which she inherits after her grandmother, Adele Stackhouse, is murdered in the first book. She has one sibling, her older brother Jason Stackhouse. In the sixth book, Definitely Dead, Sookie discovers she is part Faerie. Sookie has several Fae relatives, including twin...
When the body of a were-panther is discovered in the parking lot of Merlotte's, Sookie Stackhouse tries to discover the identity of the killer, but encounters a much greater threat to the human and undead communities of Bon Temps.
