Salem's Lot by Stephen King
Salem's Lot

heavensentraven, January 5, 2011

When it comes to Stephen King I find that his books really have to hook me from the beginning or I lose interest so after failing to finish Carrie and The Shining I was hesitant about reading another. However Salem's Lot seemed to beckon me and once I picked it up I found that I couldn't put it down. One of the best vampire books I have ever read. From the very first page you are sucked into an intriguing story about an ancient evil and the small town it slowly destroys. The hero's are compelling and worth rooting for and king really sets up the town's story really well. You meet many of the townspeople and by the very end you are literally blown away by a hellish nightmare that engulfs them and leaves only a ghost town in its wake. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves Stephen King and loves Vampire stories.

Definitely Dead: Sookie Stackhouse Novel #6 (Southern Vampire Series)

heavensentraven, January 14, 2010

A very exciting conclusion to the series that follows telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse as she starts a new relationship with handsome shapeshifter Quinn and deals with vampires and werepeople. After her cousin Hadley is murdered Sookie must contend with all of Hadleys belongings but while in New Orleans gets pulled into a bitter battle between vampires that involves Hadley's lover the Queen of Lousianna meanwhile Sookie and her new boyfriend must deal with some evil bad guys along with two vamps Bill and Eric who both still carry a torch for Sookie. Very action paced and a book you won't want to put down.
