Dead Until Dark

Dead Until Dark Book Cover

Dead Until Dark is the first novel in Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Mysteries. You probably recognize the main character, Sookie Stackhouse, from the television show True Blood. While there are some similarities, the thirteen book series of novels takes the story of Sookie, Bill, Eric and Sam in a much different direction. In this first book, we meet Sookie, Bill and a few other major characters. We are also introduced to the town of Bon Temps, Louisiana - and the theme of small town life, a big part of the story. If you love paranormal romance with relatable, female main characters, try Dead Until Dark. If you enjoy Sookie's role as heroine, you are guaranteed to love the next twelve books, too.
