Dead Until Dark
by: Charlaine Harris
Published: 2001 Ace Fantasy
Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana, but she keeps to herself and doesn't date much because of her "disability" to read minds. When she meets Bill, Sookie can't hear a word he's thinking. He's the type of guy she's waited for all of her life, but he has a disability, too--he's a vampire with a bad reputation. When one of Sookie's coworkers is killed, she fears she's next.
I said this review would be short and I meant it!! Sookie is a character that I immediately was drawn to...she's smart, vulnerable and believable. That in combination with Harris' amazing ability to create a story that you can leap into with both feet, helps make this book a winner. I totally recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a vampire story that doesn't disappoint and is just pure fun!
