'A frothy fusion of romance, mystery and fantasy' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
A new Sookie Stackhouse book is always a treat! Sookie is a sexy, sassy cocktail waitress who works at Merlotte's Bar in Bon Temps, Louisiana. She's just a regular gal, with all the normal hopes and fears, about dating, boys and life in general - oh, and she's telepathic. And her boyfriends have included Vampire Bill, her first love and the were-tiger Quinn. And Bon Temps is a pretty normal rural town, where murders are mercifully rare. Well, maybe not that rare, as Sookie keeps finding out in this award-winning, New York Times bestselling series!
And this February Sookie comes to the small screen in True Blood, created by Alan Ball (Six Feet Under) and starring Anna Paquin as the irrepressible heroine.
The following is an excerpt from the first chapter:
“Caucasian vampires should never wear white,” the television announcer intoned. “We’ve been secretly filming Devon Dawn, who’s been a vampire only for a decade, as she gets dressed for a night on the town. Look at that outfit! It’s all wrong for her!”
“What was she thinking?” said an acidic female voice. “Talk about stuck in the nineties! Look at that blouse, if that’s what you call it. Her skin just cries out for contrasting color, and what is she putting on? Ivory! It makes her skin look like a Hefty bag.”
I paused in the act of tying my shoe to watch what happened next as the two vampire fashionistas burst in the on the hapless victim – oh, excuse me, the lucky vampire who was about to get an unsolicited makeover. She’d have the additional pleasure of realizing her friends had turned her in to the fashion police.
“I don’t think this is going to end well,” Octavia Fant said. Though my housemate Amelia Broadway had sort of slid Octavia into my house -- based on a casual invitation I’d issued in a weak moment – the arrangement was working out okay.
“Devon Dawn, here’s Marla Cranshaw from The Best Dressed Vamp, and I’m Todd Seabrook. Your friend Tessa called to tell us you needed fashion help! We’ve been secretly filming you for the past two nights, and . . . AAACCCKK!” A white hand flashed at Todd’s throat, which vanished, leaving a gaping reddish hole. The camera lingered, fascinated, as Todd crumpled to the floor, before it rose to follow the fight between Devon Dawn and Marla.
“Gosh,” said Amelia. “Looks like Marla’s gonna win.”
“Better strategic sense,” I said. “Did you notice she let Todd go through the door first?”
“I’ve got her pinned,” Marla said triumphantly on the screen. “Devon Dawn, while Todd recovers his speech, we’re going to go through your closet. A girl who’s going to live for eternity can’t afford to be tacky. Vampires can’t get stuck in their pasts. We’ve got to be fashion-forward!”
Devon Dawn whimpered, “But I like my clothes! They’re part of who I am! You’ve broken my arm.”
“It’ll heal. Listen, you don’t want to be known as the little vampire who couldn’t, do you? You don’t want to have your head stuck in the past!”
“Well, I guess not . . .”
“Good! I’ll let you up now. And I can tell from the coughing that Todd’s feeling better.”
I switched off the television and tied my other shoe, shaking my head at America’s new addiction to vampire “reality” shows. I got my red coat out of the closet. The sight of it reminded me that I myself had some absolutely real problems with a vampire; in the two and a half months since the takeover of the Louisiana vampire kingdom by the vampires of Nevada, Eric Northman had been fully occupied with consolidating his position with the new regime and evaluating what was left of the old.
We were way overdue for a chitchat about Eric’s newly recovered memories of our strange and intense time together when he’d temporarily misplaced his memory due to a spell.
