From Dead to Worse: Sookie Stackhouse Novel #8 (Southern Vampire Series)by Charlaine Harris

From Charlaine Harris, who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, comes a darker locale — populated more by strangers than friends. But then, that's how the locals prefer it. Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants. It's a pretty standard dried-up western town. Stop at the one traffic light, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth. Midnight Crossroad (Ace) is the first novel in Harris's new trilogy.
From Dead to Worse, the eighth Sookie Stackhouse book by Charlaine Harris, is funny, sexy, sassy, and full of surprises. This series is one of my favorites because Harris creates such a plausible alternate reality. Her main character, Sookie, can't seem to keep a man undead or otherwise and the supernatural side of her life keeps getting more and more complicated. In From Dead to Worse, Sookie, as usual, just wants to lead a normal life, but the weres and the vampires, as well as her fairy grandfather, have other ideas. Sookie is a delightful character, full of charm and vulnerability, yet able to take on some pretty tough bad guys. Harris's believable cast of supernatural characters keeps the reading coming back for more of her exciting world.
Synopses & Reviews
New in the "addicting" New York Times bestselling series featuring Sookie Stackhouse.
After the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the manmade explosion at the vampire summit, everyone — human and otherwise — is stressed, including Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who is trying to cope with the fact that her boyfriend Quinn has gone missing.
It's clear that things are changing — whether the weres and vamps of her corner of Louisiana like it or not. And Sookie — Friend to the Pack and blood-bonded to Eric Northman, leader of the local vampire community — is caught up in the changes.
In the ensuing battles, Sookie faces danger, death, and once more, betrayal by someone she loves. And when the fur has finished flying and the cold blood finished flowing, her world will be forever altered.
"Sookie's fans will love this addition to the Southern Vampire Mysteries series." Library Journal
"A thoroughly engaging series." Locus
"A style that's much more fun than Anne Rice." Monroe (LA) News-Star
